Kick-Ass

BluRay Authority
18 October 2013
  • Excerpt: At the most basic level, you could probably break down the movie-going public into two categories: those who will find humor in a twelve-year-old girl gleefully dismembering and/or murdering bad guys while nonchalantly spewing out “the c word” and those who will not.  Your enjoyment of “Kick-Ass” as a film, make no mistake, will depend greatly upon which of these two camps you personally fall into.

  • Excerpt: Fun and entertaining in all the ways a violent R-rated action flick should be, but its unfocused structure creates a lull that almost kills the movie.

Kick-Ass (Blu-ray)

Rock! Shock! Pop!
5 September 2011
  • Excerpt: Based on the popular Marvel Comics series of the same name by writer Mark Millar and artist John Romita Jr., Matthew Vaughn’s 2010 big screen adaptation of Kick-Ass proved to be a good bit of ultraviolent and socially irresponsible fun. By taking the standard superhero formula, which society as a whole often delegates as children’s entertainment, and giving it a darkly humorous real-world slant, Vaughn and company took a character without the long lasting and established...

Kick-Ass

Rock! Shock! Pop!
13 January 2011
  • Excerpt: Kids in movies typically exist in a precarious situation: They’re either used purely as motivational staples (“I must save my family!”) or for hoisting all of the adult problems and fixes upon (kids talking like screenwriters instead of kids) or pretty much exploitational (“Get it? It’s a kid doing it this time!”). In the hands of a hack comic writer like Mark Millar - seriously, how does this guy get work?

  • Excerpt: I can vividly recall the overwhelmingly positive response from the online geek community when “Kick-Ass” (2010) first started popping up at special screenings across the country. Fanboys chimed in on sites like Ain’t It Cool with reviews so immeasurably stocked with hyperbole and praise that I went against my own personal barometer and allowed my expectations to crescendo to an all-time high.

Kick-Ass Blu-ray Review

4 August 2010
  • Excerpt: The Film Is it possible to make a bad movie called Kick-Ass ? We wouldn't know. That's because Matthew Vaughn's ( Layer Cake ) future cult flick isn't just a good movie; it's actually a great movie. Kick-Ass takes the superhero genre to the next level, getting down to brass tacks (and sometimes brass knuckles) to show us what we really want to see our superheroes do: kick some serious ass.

Kick-Ass Review

DoBlu
4 August 2010
  • Excerpt: Kick-Ass loves to flaunt that is was able to find a 12-year old who was readily available to cuss like a sailor and slaughter countless goons. Chloe Moretz actually does a great job as the masked Hit-Girl, raised by her father to do as she pleases, take a bullet to the chest, and utilize machine guns that likely weigh more than she does. There’s nothing inherently wrong with the character. It’s a movie, it’s fiction, it’s a fantasy world.

  • Summary: I’m glad to report that the film’s rather disappointing box office hasn’t kept talk of a sequel from going full throttle. Kick Ass 2: Balls To The Wall appears to be on Vaughn’s plate after the X-Men film is finished. Unfortunately, the title suggests a potential lesson left unlearned. Give everyone involved for giving this film another chance without the big bucks that might have been expected. It’s nice to know that “It’s not always about the money”.

  • Conclusion: Alright, if you did the math yourself, then you would discover that if you average all the four above mentioned category scores you would get an average of 4.125, which you would automatically round down to 4.  Wouldn’t you?  Okay, let’s be honest here.  Simply put, this film “KICKS ASS,” and for the first time in my online reviewing career I am putting more weight on the film score to strengthen the disc’s final score.

DVD Verdict
26 July 2010
  • Excerpt: Our story is centered around a teenager named Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson, The Illusionist ), an ordinary kid in pretty much every way. He likes comic books, he has trouble getting girls to notice him, and he hangs out with a couple of like-minded friends. Eighteen months ago, his mother passed away, but he's learned to cope with that. One day, Dave starts to ponder something: why hasn't anyone ever attempted to actually be a real superhero?
