And it's a master class in editing and pacing. All the plot twists, most of the jokes are cliched and telegraphed. It's better than Deadpool, just bursting at the seams with great energy, imagination and risk taking. Christopher Mintz-Plasse is a great villain for this comedy film. Meanwhile, The Motherfucker started his own team of villains bent on taking revenge on Kick-Ass. It's bold, different, and really goes against the norm which is why I found it so refresher after most stale Hollywood movies. Great soundtrack and score, an engaging story and plenty of action.
Sixteen year old Dave Lizewski can't understand why no one has ever tried to be a super-hero. Dave Lizewski is an unnoticed high school student and comic book fan who one day decides to become a superhero, even though he has no powers, training or meaningful reason to do so. The pace never lags, and there are times that it zooms a few steps ahead of the viewer and patiently waits for us to catch up. For its modest budget for a superhero movie, the action scenes were decent although there may be some shot using green screen backdrops. Aaron Taylor Johnson, Chloe Grace Moritz and Mark Strong all own their roles, with Strong in particular pulling off the neat trick of being both menacing and funny. The Motherfucker and Kick-Ass battle with the former losing it out to the superhero. Not to mention an unusually intricate plot for superhero movies.
One minute hilarious, the next serious. Chloe Moretz steals the show obviously, but everyone really holds their own. I don't know how I missed this when it came out. This is one of my favorite movies. Now grown up, Chloe Moretz fits into the kick ass, cursing Hit-Girl and the more ordinary high school student Mindy.
Part action movie, part comedy, Kick-Ass is a riff on the super-hero genre that pokes fun and pays tribute to them at the same time. What I liked best about it is it's a movie that doesn't pull its punches. She's an icon due to her role as hit girl. The movie itself has been done many ways over so you either like it or don't, but Chloë is hit girl and you need to watch her. Nic Cage has his moments, though I think his stilted superhero delivery while in costume was a poor choice. It wasn't that youth were violent, it was the story line itself which I won't spoil.
But this movie is sure to satisfy hardcore fans of the first film! This film has emotional highs and lows and a few laughs along the way. Not sure I'd watch it multiple times, but hey. Storyline: Dave Lizewski is an unnoticed high school student and comic book fan with a few friends and who lives alone with his father. Plot: The movie picks up after Dave Lizewski Aaron Taylor-Johnson retires from being Kick-Ass but because he was bored began training again with Mindy Macready Chloe Grace Moretz aka Hit-Girl. Having no powers, but lot of enthusiasm, Dave sets out on his adventure.
When I think of comedy, depressing content matter does not come to mind. It might have been ahead of the curve. As he was about to drop from the building, Kick-Ass extends a hand, but The Motherfucker opted to fall into his demise. All in all, Kick-Ass 2 was not as awesome as the first movie, but it delivers. While Dave resumed his superhero role as Kick-Ass and joined the Justice Forever team headed by Colonel Stars and Stripes Jim Carrey , Mindy gets busted by her guardian and was forced to give up her cape and live life as an ordinary high school student, but eventually makes a comeback. . I loved this move around 2010-2012.
However, one day he makes the simple decision to become a super-hero even though he has no powers or training. Even 11 year old Wendy, rips off one to an adult. I have to say this is one of my favorite movies. This movie failed box office because it couldn't figure out that its audience is kids, who have a hard time seeing R rated. My appreciation for this movie is partially my nostalgia, and the rest is me enjoying it. The movie received mixed reactions from critics.
This has to be one of the funniest, best movies ever made, if you're 11. But what can you do with an 11 year old serial killer psychopath and teeners humping? Kick Ass really kicks ass and leaves you wanting more. The main characters are holding up well in their roles with some standout moments and some interesting character arcs. The acting and casting were well done though as was the script. I felt like their backstories were stronger than typical superhero films. The girl steals the movie and 5 stars for her. His life is not very difficult and his personal trials not that overwhelming.
