« Five reasons to hate Kick-Ass | Main | Philip K. Dick's Exegesis »

April 18, 2010



I never read the comics, but I'd been looking forward to the movie since the first teasers. I went in REALLY wanting to like it.

But, yeah. It just didn't work for me.

I hate to say it, but if a movie studio had gotten involved, cut the most gruesome parts, and watered it down to PG-13... I think I'd have liked it more.


I just saw Kick Ass and enjoyed it, some parts quite a lot. I think I have considerably lower standards for movies than I do for comic books.

Like the comic, the movie has no point, and the main character is a side show to the actual plot line. However, the Big Daddy & Hit Girl movie is pretty darn fun. It's probably the fact that I haven't seen it before, but I really did have a great time watching an 11 year old girl go ninja assassin on everyone, in the most morally apathetic junk food way.

It's not a good movie, mostly because it tells a story without any point or internal logic. But it's was definitely a better use of my $6 than most crappy movies I see.
