Fresh: Kick-Ass is a compendium of all sleazy things, and it sings like a siren to our inner Tarantinos.
- David Edelstein, New York Magazine, Thursday, June 24, 2010
Fresh: Kick-Ass is ultra-funny, ultra-silly and ultra-geeky, but what Kick-Ass mostly is, is monumentally cool - this is the film the kids will be swearing about.

Love this film and have watched it many times, excellent twist on the superhero theme and can't wait to watch the sequel when it arrives.

The film wasn't bad, it just wasn't the laugh out loud, ultra violent, entertaining film I've heard so much about & thought I was gonna get. the action was great, the music was very good, and some of the dialogue is pretty funny. It just didn't keep me very entertained a lot. lot of the time I was just waiting for something to happen or something funny to be said. Just sitting, watching a not very interesting protagonist. Nicolas Cage and Chloe Moretz are okay and Mark Strong is his normal great dickish self but the rest of the cast just doesn't appeal to me. It is okay for a first viewing but it does fall into a lot of teen film cliches and jokes too which are just predictable and cringeworthy

Amazing on many levels! Lives up the title and goes beyond! A visual treat combined with comic-like violence and a hint of every superhero story that is out there in the world today. The stabs at cliches in this film are far beyond brilliant, but after a while that is all this film does until the end, which is great, but it keeps it from having that "loving" type of feel. This movie is Hilarious, Gory, Dramatic, and Action Packed, what more could you want? This is one of the best films of 2011 for entertainment reasons, and I can watch it over and over again. Aaron Johnson kills it in the main role and the supporting cast all have their share of big moments as well. This is a great Superhero film, but that title is definitely up for debate. I love "Kick-Ass" for everything that it is, and everything that it is not.
