Default Kick Ass Review

Had quite high hopes going into this one, wasn't dissapointed.

It's not epic or life changing to any extent, but it's REALLY good fun. What's more it's a much needed return to form for Nicholas Cage.

If you enjoyed Shoot 'em up, you're a comic book fan, or you just enjoy a bit of the old ultra violence with a high-tempo, comedic twist, you'll love this.

How much did ti share with the comic?

I've seen from trailers that it has a few scenes frane for frame the same, but there's some new stuff I didn;t recognize...and I'm worried some of the priginal content (like Condition Red) might not make it to the film

My brother went to London Premier (lucky bastard was one of 75 people to get their Kick-Ass comic signed by the artist and get a ticket to the Premier) and he said it was fantastic, smug little shit went on to have a chat with Brad Pitt (as you do) who also enjoyed it...

They've taken quite a few liberties to help tie the storylines together and shorten it, they've also altered a few of the arcs, but not how you might expect.

The tone is still very much the same, and i don't think you'll be dissapointed. It's nowhere near what they did to wanted, league of extraordinary gentleman and such.


Kudos to your Brother Baron, lucky bastard

That was the first thing we all said when we got out. They conformed to the '1 use of the c word' rule, but the rest of it should have pushed it over the threshold.

All the best comic writers are british (exceptions for bendis, whedon and brubaker perhaps)

You'll notice there's quite a lot of british talent in it, mainly actors who've been in Matthew Vaughn's other projects. I really enjoyed all his films to date, so hoping he will do something good with the new X-Men Film.

It's a pity the film did so terribly at the box office (and so has Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World)- seriously we don't deserve to have these decent movies made as they don't usually do well at the box office because so few people go to see them (despite proclaiming on the net that they 'totally can't wait for this to come out'), then we have crap like the 4th Indiana Jones which just raked in the cash.
