This week's reviewed movie is:
Kick Ass




Gene the Barber

First, let me say they finally made a comic book movie with real people that I can't wait to see again.

I know some viewers will find it rather violent and gruesome.

I say to them, don't go, it's a little late to get into it now.

This film brought back my younger days of reading comic books like they were made in my time zone.

I would like to thank the makers of Kick Ass for making one of the best comic book movies ever.

Funny, violent, and definitely NOT for everyone, Kick Ass goes where no film has gone before: satirizing cartoons, high school coming-of-age films, and super-hero comics in general.

But it's Hit Girl, an 11-year-old assassin-in-training, who steals the film.

And as much as I complain about empowered women in the movies, this girl can "Kick Ass."

Funny? It's hard not to laugh watching bad guys being dispatched to the tune of the Banana Splits theme song.

Why don't regular people become super heroes? Tune in and find out.

This film is a comic book action movie that is also a teen comedy, but what I found to be disturbing is the extreme violence in this flick that is mostly committed by a sweet little 11-year-old girl who is called Hit Girl.

She's been so twisted by her out-for-revenge ex-cop father that she uses the most vile four-letter words you can imagine and then proceeds to kill about 50 bad guys.

The problem I had with this picture is that it is the most violent movie ever to feature kids as heroes.
