Kick-Ass

Shut Up. Kick-Ass.


Kick-Ass
This satire of the superhero genre has had mixed reviews and reactions. Not for the faint-hearted, the story concerns an ordinary teen with delusions of becoming a superhero via his costume. The costume fails to produce any magic, but luckily (?) he gets hooked up with an eleven year old girl and her dad, who are both well-trained in killing arts. Together they find themselves up against the local mob, and the body count soon goes through the roof.

117 minutes.

C. Fuchs quote iconFor those who get the joke and don't mind the approach, it's likely going to be entertaining to one degree or another, even as the young actress' supporting character steals the movie from the titular one.

Tomatometer quote iconNot for the faint of heart, Kick-Ass takes the comic adaptation genre to new levels of visual style, bloody violence, and gleeful profanity.
