Looking through these reviews there are many pans that say "Shameful film geared toward children." These reviews were all obviously written by one disgruntled prude. This was a fun and energetic actioner and it is NOT geared toward children. It's a cool flick for cool people. Uncool people can always watch movies like GOD'S NOT DEAD or some such thing.
Fantastic movie!! Great to watch and very funny! Having said that if you are easily offended (language/violence) then you should steer clear. If not, sit back and enjoy an excellent performance from Nicolas Cage as Big Daddy, who, for those of you who can remember the original Batman tv series will certainly bring a smile to your face! Also, Chloe Moretz is awesome as Hit Girl, certainly has a great future ahead of her! So, if you can sit back and enjoy a tongue in cheek movie without being easily offended, then dig out the popcorn and your favorite drink and enjoy!
fun and entertaining
A really fun, entertaining movie. I loved the comedy, the storyline and, yes while some of the action was at times a bit too much, it was also fun. A fun movie. Only problem was Nick Cage - he is just a bad actor.
I was surprised as to how much I enjoyed this film. I real "crowd pleaser". I thought the story was original, the acting (other than N. Cage) was perfect, and, overall, it was simply a fun movie. I plan to see it again and again.
a sad look at what the world would be like if all the comic geeks united and became super heroes. the story is weak and full of holes and the actors have no chemistry with one another.
Excellent movie. I loved it. I want more.
This movie was NOT time well wasted. Don't waste your time...that's all I can say.
H.I.L.A.R.I.O.U.S. ... Nicolas Cage and Chloe Moretz were an amazing duo and made me laugh longer than I had in a long time.
I thought it was a good movie. I just think it's a little to graphic for kids though.
hysterical !! definitely one to buy !
A great movie. It makes you laugh, makes you sad and it makes you feel inspired. Great overall. Did not expect it to be so good.
Not what I expected, but very good.
Loved this movie. Thought it was great fun and I haven't enjoyed Nicolas Cage in years. Definitely recommend to anyone who has a twisted sense of humour and enjoys action/superhero films. Great Fun.
Bad adaptation of a mediocre comic book. An R rated film geared towards children. This is the most thoughtless piece of film work in a very long time. Shame on those involved! Nicolas Cage is in it too, like half the movies being released this year. Take a break Nick, please!
I found this movie really quite clever and novel, as well as very well-written. The action sequences are great fun to watch, although I found the apparent Adam West impression that Nicholas Cage was doing a little bit irksome. There is something about seeing an 11-year old saw through a room full of full-grown mob goons like a lawnmower ithat just warms my heart. And even moreso when she casually curses while doing it. I imagine she will become a very popular Hallowe'en costume this year.
The movie was okay but there are so many other better movies, but i would buy the movie and my mom would love it
Hilarious. Don't bring your kids.
5 STARS PLUS PLUS!!! I LAUGHED SOOOO HARD MY LUNGS STOPPED BREATHING!! BEST COMEDY MOVIE TO DATE!!! I WOULD SEE THIS AGAIN AND AGAIN!!!
Shameful piece of filmmaking using violence as childrens' entertainment. Mindless interpretation of a decent comic book makes for surprisingly brain numbing pseudo-entertainment. Poorly conceived notion that could have been improved with a lot less violent content.
The title of the movie speaks for itself!
This is what's wrong with movies today. An R rated film geared towards kids. Films like this glorify violence without any regard for those watching it. Good story and decent cast are sunk by thoughtless money grab filmmaking mentality. Give your head a shake Matthew Vaughn and get a clue!
Kind of like a Kill-Bill but with kids, Kick Ass is an interesting movie. Definitely recommend.
Shameful piece of filmmaking using children to entertain in an R rated film. Movies like this prove that money beats scruples any day. Thoughtless fimmaking with no sense of what is really just. Disguising an excuse for violence as entertainment, this film should be put in its place. Not recommended
This movie was not exactly what I expected after seeing the trailer - a bit shocking at times in fact. Overall though it was an emotional thrill ride. From sadness to revenge and tenderness to kick ass - it has it all. It's definately worh a look!!
A surprise from beginning to end. Not what I had expected at all. It was fantastic!
Shameful exploitation of children disguised as entertainment. This film is rated R and geared towards children, what were the filmmakers thinking? Violence is the scourge of society, why glorify it in the hands of children? Shame, shame, shame!
Poor first 8 minutes and gradually became better and better. Too much foul language,but an action packed movie. Good to watch.
not what i expected at all, 20 times better!!! hilarious, kill bill meets super bad meets xmen
Good story and ok acting mared by way to much violence, foul language and no sympathetic characters. An R rated film geared towards children, shame on the filmmakers for this thoughtless production.
Great movie! Even better than I expected. The storyline and characters were more realistic than Spiderman ever will be.
Pushes the limits. Very good Moive.
This movie was Entertaining, crazy martial arts by Hit-Girl... Never been a big fan of Nicolas Cage but i found him that he did well as an eccentric/Vengeful father... All in all it was very entertaining and it has a good story behind it. Enjoy
The most thoughtless excuse for a movie in a very long time. R rated entertainemnt for kids. Not the wisest of notions. The filmmakers manage to take a good idea and blow it out of the water with too much violence and pointless swearing. Shame on the filmmakers for making this!
This movie has to be aimed at the pre teen, teen population. Not funny, silly and nasty. Do not recommend this movie for anyone with a brain.
this movie was a good laugh. there were some silly parts. but overall the comedy was good. and the action was amazing.
Kick ass kicks ass!!!! Awesome movie!!
It was a great movie with awesome action sequences, very funny moments & a great story line.Both me & my son loved it.
Great mix of comedy and action. Worth seeing over and over.
fun movie to watch
Normally don't like Nicolas Cage but liked him in this role. Like when he is in character as opposed to a tough guy. The little girl superhero was totally "kick - ass". Can't wait to buy the DVD. Would show to all 6 of my nieces. Girl Power all the way!!!
Great movie but it is not for young kids.
I'm not sure what audience this movie is aimed at-presumably those who regard themselves as inhabitants of a cool milieu. so,we have potty mouthed kis,buckets of gore and irritating characters. This is not my cup of hemlock. I parted company with this flick following cage's training session-you know-where he fired a pistol at his daughter's torso. But for Cage's slice of ham acting,this one is nearly a zero.Oh, WHAT THE HELL-zero stars!
good movie. amazing young girl actor
I was disappointed as I thought it was going to be a comedy, kept waiting for the big laughs
great action with some nerdy humour. awesome characters
really funny movie , not at all waht i expected from the trailers
