    WATCH THIS MOVIE!!!!

    Even though it is a superhero movie, be prepared because Kick-Ass has some graphic scenes and vulgar language. The movie is filled with good comedy, great action, and an exceptional plot. One of my favorite things about the movie is that none of the characters actually had super powers.
    The setting in the movie is New York City, which is common in most comic books. That is where super heroes are from, big cities where crime is happening on a daily basis. What is also great about the movie is the heroes' costumes. I thought each and every one of them was unique and different from anything I had ever seen. I thought the costume design team did a fantastic job with their work. My favorite costume though was the worn by Red Mist, played by Christopher-Mintz Plasse. I thought he had the coolest costume of the whole movie. I liked his the most because I feel like that's how a teen superhero would choose to dress in 2010. The black and red combination was very cool and his hairstyle was original too. Also, he was the only superhero with his own car and it was a badass one.
    Another reason why I liked the movie is because to me it was the most realistic superhero movie that I have ever seen. The fact that it was rated "R" made the whole movie. This let the director does everything that he wanted to do without be restricted by "PG 13" guidelines. In other superhero movies, they weren't able to be as violent, gruesome, use mature language, and action because of being rated "PG 13". In Kick-Ass they did not sugar coat anything. I felt everything was portrayed as it would be in real life. That is probably one of the reasons why I liked it so much. The action scenes were some of my favorite in the movie. In some instances, it was a little stretched but you have to remind yourself it is still a movie so there will be some "unreal" things. But even with that I loved those scenes. There was one scene in the movie that was absolutely one of my favorites. I will try to describe as best I can without giving away too much of the movie. I loved the special effects, camera angles, camera views and lightings and the overall scene set up. I had never seen anything like that before.
    I cannot say there were many things that I disliked about the movie. The few things I didn't like I am not able to say because then that would be giving away the movie and I surely do not want to do that for any who read this. So I will save that until you watch this movie. I hope after reading this review you have found it very helpful. My purpose was to show people what a great, fun, action packed movie this was. Even I thought this movie was going to be weird and dumb when it first came out. But I watched it one night when I was bored and was immediately hooked. I highly suggest buying this movie. If you like action, comedy, and superheroes this is the perfect movie to buy. BUY it!!!

    Totally Great!

    This movie was way good! It did have some shock value to it, that's for sure...such as a 12-13 year old girl who moonlights as a masked crime fighter with her father shootin up baddies & running them through and whatnot. Haha. I had to see this movie, first of all, because of Nicholas Cage. I have always been a pretty big Nicholas Cage fan. Furthermore, I love comic book/superhero based movies in general. I also love good comedy. This is a mixture of that stuff...plus even a little bit of romance and dram mixed in. There are a few pretty cool, bloody brilliant action sequences in this as well...and the end is just awesome! If you are sensitive to violence gore or don't particularly care much for language or crass stuff, then I wouldn't recommend this movie to you, but if those sorts of things don't bother you too much, then definitely check out this movie!
