Let's get started with some of the reviews (although IMO people should see the film before reading any reviews):

http://cinema.thedigitalfix.co.uk/content/id/72365/kick-ass.html
http://www.mtv.com/movies/news/articles/1637166/story.jhtml

Bottom line: this is a very, very entertaining film.

The instant 8.4 on IMDb indicates this is not very likely to be my kind of stuff.

Well, sometimes the dipsh*t fanboys are right (as they are this time). If you like Tarantino films even a little, you should like this.

The first trailers made it look okay, but everything I've read about it since has put me off seeing it. Maybe I'll change my mind if I get really bored.

Well, you're not much of a Tarantino fan, anyway.

This is kinda amusing: http://www.armchaircommentary.com/2010/04/nicolas-cage-vs-adam-west-batman-trivia.html

I don't slavishly lick QT's boots, if that's what you mean.

But either way, I don't see how that has any bearing on a film that's not directed by Tarantino.

You didn't read the articles I linked to. The lede in the second one was "Sitting through "Kick-Ass" is like seeing a Tarantino movie for the first time." I think that's a pretty fair assessment.

Kick-Ass 8/10

Man my brother got back in town and my mom decided we needed to go to the movies as a family.  This looked dumb as hell but it was actually just really entertaining.  Off-beat humor juxtaposed with just shocking, over-the-top violence.  No substance at all but there's no substance in anything nowadays, so what the hell.

This is the right way to package home video releases: the Blu-ray comes bundled with a DVD disc and a disc with digital copy.

Dude! I can NOT believe none of U douche bags have seen KICK-ASS!! It like, totally rules! It's about this nerd dude, who, like, reads comic books and jacks off 30 times a day 'n shit, but gives it all up to become a super hero called KICK-ASS!! This movie rocks!!


OK, I can't carry on writing in that tiresome style, but why does KICK ASS need a thread of its own on the Leone forum? Well, if nothing else because during one of the scenes of bloody mayhem perpetuated by one of the other super heroes in town, 11 year old Hit-Girl, the film uses the title music from FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE composed by one E. Morricone.



While director Matthew Vaughn never quotes Leone visually, he often recalls the kind of hyper Kurasawa kineticism seen through KILL BILL VOLUME 1's prism. KICK ASS is effortlessly entertaining nonsense with laugh out loud dialogue and the sort of idiotically funny violence only an 11 year old girl could get away with inflicting. Even Nicholas Cage manages not to be massively irritating for the first time in possibly, oooooh.... a decade? This is one movie I am looking forward to seeing the sequel for. Hell, it was even filmed here in the UK.

Glad you liked Kick-Ass, Juan. I found it quite funny myself.
