This movie is vulgar, yet entertaining and over the top funny.

I really liked this silly little film.
It's not just a TEEN flick.

Loved it! I'm an older(early 60's) guy but I thought Hit Girl was awesome, punching-out those older dudes. Way to go! Of course, the story line was a toss-away but hey, that wasn't the point. It's all fantasy anyway, and I thought it did a great job of showcasing some great moviemaking skills.

Now, here's a seriously screwy superhero movie that definitely had its head right up its ass. I think that a much more appropriate title for this utter nonsense would've been "Stupid-Ass"._____ It really made very little sense to me why the Dave Lizewski character felt that he had to literally play out his little, comic-book fantasy in real-life. Was Lizewski really so frickin' deluded and beyond common-sense thinking that he couldn't see the incredibly dangerous reality of the mission that he was about to embark on (even after he had been stabbed & beaten)?_____ And, speaking about the Big Daddy & Hit Girl characters - Like, what sort of a demented message was that business sending out to parents and their kids?_____ So, here we have a seriously fukked-up father who trains his 11-year-old daughter to be an utterly ruthless, insensitive, foul-mouthed killing-machine. And never once do the questions of morals, or ethics, or common-sense thinking ever enter into the horridly violent actions of the bitchy, purple-haired Hit Girl._____ Yes. Of course, I do realize that this picture was, indeed, a "Comedy". But, from where I was sitting, I found its humor-factor to be extremely callous and cold-blooded in nature. This film literally stretched the point of its "jesting" to the absolute extreme, where it just couldn't sustain the insane momentum that it was creating and so it snapped under its own unbearable weight.

I won't lie when i say i hesitated about seeing this movie. I thought it would be kind of corny even though i have read good reviews and my friend also said she read the same. So, i ventured out to find this movie on a weekday and play it on my HOMETHEATER! I can't believe the young man who's learning to be a super hero called "Kick- Ass" gets his booty kicked severly. And when i least expected it, he gets creamed by a vehicle! Damn!! I was not expecting that to happen while watching this. I was expecting light comedy and teenage curiosity. This movie caught me off guard!!! I also wasn't expecting Mr. Cage to be an unuasual crime fighter along with his very talented daughter,Hit Girl. This film was filled with many surprises that had me from the get go. Very good! Sound wise, it wasn't too shabby. There were some scenes that rocked as far as audio, but i believe most of the movie was "all around sound." This is the kind of movie i could watch more than once and it's a part of my collection. I really enjoyed this movie and i'm giving it 5 stars!!!!! For a story i thought would be corny and it wasn't, a bad guy and his son, "Hit Girl", "Big Daddy", and a smile on my face. Chopped lamb on yellow rice, lettuce, tomatoes, a few cucumbers, and lemmon aide.

I am not really into the whole superhero thing but hubby wanted me to watch this before we saw Kick-Ass 2. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. And yes, Hit Girl is awesome in this movie.

OMG! Im straight but in love with HIT GIRL! The movie should have had her as the lead. Kick ass was cool too, but HIT GIRL ROCKED! Im not into comics and only rented to see what all the talk was about but now I cant wait to get my hands on KICK ASS 2.

A pulply comic book movie that tries to be tongue-in-cheek, but is mostly just a dumb, sub-Tarantino effort that thinks it's edgy by playing violence for laughs and having a kid swear. The cast (aside from Nic Cage, who is on his own planet) makes it somewhat worthwhile.

I'm kinda in love with Hit-Girl.

  • LindaHolland rated this: 4.5 stars out of 5.

The film is worth it just to see Nick Cage (Big Daddy) teaching his pre-pubescent daughter (Hit Girl) how to be a bad ass assassin. Lots of tongue-in-cheek moments and lots of homages to other films/genres/characters. The acting is great and although it's hard to really believe this 10-year old can take out roomfulls of hit men ... the action is so good you want to believe!
A good alternate action kind of movie with laughs - and lots of blood - but makes you cheer for the 'underdogs'!

Damon Macready: So... Have you thought a little more about what you might want for your birthday?

Mindy Macready: Can I get a puppy?

Damon Macready: [surprised] You wanna get a dog?

Mindy Macready: Yeah, a cuddly fluffy one, and a Bratz movie-star make over Sasha!

[Damon is stunned]

Mindy Macready: [laughs] I'm just fucking with you Daddy! Look, I'd love a Benchmade model 42 butterfly knife.

Damon Macready: [relieved] Oh, child... You always knock me for a loop!

Dave Lizewski: Jesus, guys, doesn't it bug you? Like thousand of people wanna be Paris Hilton and nobody wants to be Spiderman.
Marty: Yeah, what's with that? She has like no tits at all.
Todd: Maybe it's the porn tape, he doesn't have a porn tape.
Marty: You guys never saw "One Night In Spiderman"?

Dave Lizewski: I always wondered why no-one did it before me. I mean, all those comic books, movies, TV shows... you think that one eccentric loner would've made himself a costume. I mean, is everyday life really so exciting? Are schools and offices so thrilling that I'm the only one who fantasized about this? Come on, be honest with yourself, at some point in our lives we all wanna be a superhero.

Dave Lizewski/Kick-Ass (narration/voiceover): "In the world I lived in, heroes only existed in comic books. And I guess that'd be okay, if bad guys were make-believe too, but they're not."
