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
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.
