    Default Kick Ass

    Went to the midnight showing last night and I was definitely entertained. Lots of good action, good comedy and a plot that actually didn't disappoint. Sure it's a movie about people trying to be super heros so there's some stuff you just kind of have to go with and there were some lame parts but I loved it. There's definitely parts that make you say "OH!" Will definitely see again and will recommend for anyone who likes comic book, "teenage" (ex. Superbad), or comedy movies. Mix it all together and you get "Kick Ass."

    I'm really dying to see this and I hear they're really not doing the movie justice with the previews. There also seems to be a bit of controversy concerning how bloody this movie actually is. What were your thoughts?
    I never had it like this where I grew up. But I send my kids here because the fact is you go to one of the best schools in the country: Rushmore. Now, for some of you it doesn't matter. You were born rich and you're going to stay rich. But here's my advice to the rest of you: Take dead aim on the rich boys. Get them in the crosshairs and take them down. Just remember, they can buy anything but they can't buy backbone. Don't let them forget it. Thank you.Herman Blume - Rushmore

    The controversy I heard about was that Hit Girl gets whooped up a bit. yeah she's a young girl but up till that point, she was doing all the ass kicking. I have tougher skin than an alligator so it takes a LOT to offend me. Yeah she took some licks but I had no issues with it. Even the good guys will get roughed up. And there's some brutal fights! I'm a fan...

    I'm pissed, 'cause the only theater that decided to show this in my town is kinda' ghetto and not worth going to. Really wanted to see it... but I guess I'm stuck waiting for video.

    The theater a mile from my house had large banners up for it last month... but instead are debuting two Christian movies I've never heard of. Bizarre.

    Just saw it. Strange flick.

    Not really a hero flick. Not really comedy. Not really an action flick. Not really that good. Not that bad, either.
    Do you hear that buzzing noise?

    I loved this movie. Just a lot of wow really did that really just happen and a lot of funny.
    Some good LFE levels as well in the movie, but also it was a Sunday night showing and they always crank up the volume there.

    Entertaining movie. It had a decent story line and a few laughs. They action scenes were great. I thought the little girl was excellent in the movie. She had all the best scenes.

    For a low budget film, they did an amazing job really polishing it and making it highly entertaining. They also put a lot of care into the location sound making sure that the dialog was captured extremely well. The choreographed fight scenes were great and I loved the detail down to the earthquake effect applied when Nicholas Cage was firing the shotgun in the warehouse scene.

    My daughter bought this last night, and we watched it.

    It was pretty entertaining, and not at all what I expected. Some good laughs, and lots of action, and Hit Girl was a crack up. Yeah, she gets roughed up, but she more than makes up for it.
    My equipment sig felt inadequate and deleted itself.

    Absolutely horrible movie....11 and 12 year old girls using such vulgar language is amusing? What the hell is wrong with America today? Glad I only paid $1 to rent it. I could've got a Double Stack at Wendy's and been more satisfied for my buck.

    First of all Bob there's no need for you to criticize me just because I'm expressing my opinion OK? That's my right to do so. I could either say I loved it or hated it and just because my opinion isn't the same as yours you shouldn't come after me. On another note, I watched that movie with my 4 year old son. Yeah probably not the best choice or anything but movies just don't have a lot of morals anymore...same as childrens cartoons.

    Just rented this, looking very forward to watching it, it's gotten lots of good comments.
    If...
    Ron dislikes a film = go out and buy it.
    Ron loves a film = don't even rent.

    1. No one ever told you you didn't have the right to your opinion. I have just as much of a right to mock your opinion as you have to voice yours.

    2. I'm not criticizing your opinion of the m ovie, I realize tastes in movies are totally subjective. I'm criticizing your "What the hell is wrong with America" comment, which is not a movie opinion but a criticism of society as a whole.

    3. The movie is rated R for language and violence and you showed it to a 4-year old. Entertainment for adults does not need to have "morals." MOvies these days are pretty honest up front about what they're going to show you. The rating says "language and violence." If you don't like those things, stay away rather than damning everyone who is an adult and DOES like those things.

    Watched for a second time on BD and the surround separation was very detailed but the lack of sub usage in action scenes was disappointing. The background music had sub presence but action scenes seemed lacking. Just my thought.

    Seriously, this is the understatement of the year. You let your 4 year old watch a rated R movie without at least screening it first yourself, and then complain about it?

    I would highly suggestion that if you don't want people to comment back, that you wouldn't put that second part in there.

    If you want to know whats wrong with America, why the hell would you take a child to an R rated movie, but then wonder when they use that kind of language? I'm just really highly confused because it doesn't make sense.

    Complain about children using that language but then exposing your child to a film filled with it, as well as it already being disclosed that it has swearing by being rated R for a reason. Just makes perfect, logical sense.

    I thought the movie was hilarious. Violent? Yes. Vulgar language? Yes.

    Appropriate for young children? No. I wouldn't bring young kids to see it.

    Well I never took my child to the movies. We was over family and my cousin wanted to pop it in with his 3 year old there as well. To be honest I never read in too much about the dumbass movie because I never intended to see it so I thought it had a PG-13 rating. But I still think America is on a downward spiral and that's not gonna change

    I'd say society is more at risk from uptight crappy parents who don't know how to read a single-letter movie rating system than films that anyone can see or avoid based on their tastes.

    Violent films, films with naughty words, and pornography have all been around longer than any of us and will continue to be long after we're all gone.
