"Kick-Ass" - What Did You Think?

Posted: April 17th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Kick-Ass" - What Did You Think?Submit Comment
After lots of buzz and hype, "Kick-Ass" is finally playing in theaters. If you already had the chance to see it, we want to know what you thought. Write your mini-reviews in the comments section below.

There has been lots of controversy surrounding the movie's 11-year-old actress Chloe Moretz. And while Roger Ebert couldn't get over that, most other critics love the film. In fact, "Kick-Ass" has a 77% approval rating on RottenTomatoes.

There is no doubt that "Kick-Ass" will make back its $30 million budget, but many are waiting to see how well an R-rated "superhero" film can perform. Come back on Sunday to find out.

Even though it was PG compared to the comics, I freaking loved it. I thought the actors did excellent jobs (it's so refreshing to see Castor Troy make an appearance), and maybe it was just the atmosphere of the theater I was in, but throughout the whole film, I was either laughing from the comedy, or giggling from the f*cking well done action sequences. I'm very interested to 1) see where the comics go from here, and 2) see how the adaptation of the sequel manages to top this. ****************************************************** ******SPOILER AHEAD ZOMG SPOILER AHEAD********* ****************************************************** The one and only thing I didn't like in this movie was when Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl fly away on the jet pack. This was a relatively low budget movie, and that is really the only time it shows. I mean, the blood too, but that doesn't bother me as much, so long as it's there.
takai writes:
on April 17th, 2010 at 5:06:13 AM

Also, to comment on the money it's making; last I checked it had already made over $12 mil. That's nearly half its budget in one day. I, likely along with many others, plan on seeing this again in theaters. Maybe even a third time, but that'd be pushing it.

(sidenote) A lot of people are saying that Hit-Girl steals this show, and while that's true, I felt as if all of the other characters were crucial to keeping this film together.

Other than the fact that I liked Big Daddy and HitGirl's story in the comic much better, i enjoyed the movie. Can't believe that the guy who plays Kick-Ass actually is British.

Everyone is talking about hitgirl being a huge part of the story but what about BigDaddy and his intro on why he became BigDaddy???

Anyone have something to say about that?

Overall i loved the movie. Actors did a good job and the film took me on several emotions wich was very surprising to me.

If this plays very well, it might open doors to make other comics more violent.

I agree with Takai, that the jetpack-scene didn't look good, but it was very small flaw in a otherwise awesome movie.

The scene when Hit Girl trys to rescue Kick Ass and Big Daddy in total darkness is one of the coolest things i've witnessed in years at the cinema,since the Balrog in LOTR.Just plain cool.
Top 3 Superhero films in my book now could well be(in no paticular order)
Superman,Dark Knight and Kick Ass,keep the singer Xmen and the Rami Spiderman films,this is how i like my comic book movies.

"If this plays very well, it might open doors to make other comics more violent."

Comics have been pretty violent for some time now (ever since F. Miller went on a rampage in the mid 80s), but its nice to see them finally reaching the big screen. I might being stretching with this one, but I think we all may owe Wesley Snipes and Scott Norrington some thanks. I really dont think most of these violent graphic novels would have ever been produced if Blade didn't prove that there was a market for the bloody superhero. Since then we've seen a very noticeble change in the tone of almost all comic films. Producers aren't afraid to take chances on the darker material and the box office is finally coming around to support them. I hope Kick-Ass rapes the BO for everything its got and then some to keep the ball rolling in the right direction.

they should of kept the original BD and HG storyline with BD being a comic geek pretending to be a cop that was a great plot but the movie was still great. One thing that was weird was they tried to make red mist good and BD bad it felt that BD was using him as bait more than red mist was 9/10

This is one of the few movies that I left the theater, and then mass texted all of my friends to go see it. (Most of which did that night.)

As far as movies go, I was pretty entertained the whole time. (Which I can't say for others, E.G. - Avatar) Even the low budget scene at the end with the jet-pack did not discourage me from wanting to see it a second time.

So f*cking awesome i went to see it twice, one a special preview a week before it came out then again when it came out, to the guy who said they should of kept the BD and HG story from the comics, it was because the actual film was made before all the comic book had finished, millar has already gave an interview on ign about book number two and theres gonna bea third book and thats it. aso roll on the film trilogy of kick ass.
JohnZee writes:
on April 17th, 2010 at 2:20:30 PM

It was okay. Nowhere near what the hype made you think it was. And the guy with the comment that the movie was "near perfect". Dude? How low do you set the bar for perfection? This movie was somewhat entertaining, but saying that is was anywhere near perfection is utter bullsh*t. Rare parts of the movie were cool and invoked emotion, some parts were casually interesting, and there was a lot of footage ate up by crappy Teen movie writing. They had a scene where Hit Girl is filling a suitcase with f*cking ammunition, and then later she suddenly runs out of ammo? And to make matters and obvious bad writing even more obvious, when she runs out of bullets she suddenly acts like Superman after a kryptonite enema. She is literally acting like a scared schoolgirl all of a sudden because she is out of bullets, Although she's got smoke and stun grenades hanging off her costume....Not to mention a bladed weapon that she had earlier used to kill at least as many bad guys as the ones she was now suddenly terrified of. <---Is that the type of writing and cinema that you call perfection?

Or how about the teddy bear camera that managed to record video of Bid Daddy from ten to thirteen different angles in the warehouse from a fixed position? That's one bad ass nanny-cam.

And the Red Mist. You know when I saw the trailer of him and Kick Ass in his Red Mist mobile, I honestly thought that the big reveal shocker was going to be at the end of that car scene Red Mist was going to ask Kick Ass if he could suck his c*ck.

Besides one quick scene earlier that barely hints that Red Mist can actually fight, and then another scene where he can't even handle jumping off a dumpster, then suddenly he's an equal to Kick Ass in stick fighting at the very end?

Some of the dialogue was just clunky and horrible. The scene where Red Mist and his father, the main bad guy are in the car talking about getting something to eat? Tell me you can watch Mark Strong in that scene and not instantly know that he felt awkward performing and saying those lines? Because the dialogue there was amateurish sh*t.

Here's a clue, instead of getting Kick Ass a bunch of super awesome weapons at then end that only end up showing that he was a complete putz on his own, how about giving him one of those stun baton things that deliver an electrical shock to his opponents when he hit them with it? And don't tell me that those things don't exist, because one of the thugs uses one these types of weapons on Big Daddy.

The movie did have good points, but they could have just as easily made a ultra-violent R rated Lady Gaga video and sold copies and made just as much money. And then they wouldn't to have even bothered with things like plot, character development, and dialogue. All things that were obviously problematic for the film makers on this movie.

Oh, because u said that i change my opinoion, on no wait, its MY opinion so it cant be wrong, opinions and preferences arent wrong but i feel me clearing a few things up will be pointless to u but here it goes....

Wow, maybe because she is a little girl, its to show that she isnt super human and thats she isnt completely fearless and has feelings etc

And of course, it didnt get all those angles u bloody tool, its for cinematic purposes that WE see everything, they didnt.

Red Mist wishes he could, hes a fanboy like alot of us.

They talked in the car about snacks and drink and whatever for joke value beacause u can clearly hear the guy being tortured/killed in the warehouse.

Actually, are u related to Roger Ebert by any chances? I bet u loved Avatar, Clash of the Titans and errrrrr, lets say the The Mummy 3 too....

Wow, AYT BALL actually pulled the "unless you can do better" card. I think we have a contender for the most pathetic internet troll of 2010. The bar has been set, who'll challenge it?

As for the film itself, there are a few admirable things about it (bizarrely inspired Nicholas Cage performance, creative action sequences), but it's also a disheartening reminder of how soulless, proudly violent and gleefully sadistic our society is becoming. The fact that it's now "uncool" to be disturbed by a man beating the living sh*t out of a twelve year-old girl (herself a vicious, violent character) is unfortunate.

I can understand dumbass fanboys like AYT BALL lapping it up, but seeing the general moviegoing public take collective pleasure in Hit-Girl's murderous rampage is sad.

@SamuelClayton: No, watching the general public making Transformers and Twilight blockbusters is sad. And I don't see the problem with Hit-Girl. Sure, she's supposed to be twelwe, but she ain't supposed to be only twelwe (if anyone know what I mean). The only thing that seperates Hit-Girl from the Home Alone-kid, is the blood. And didn't the little kid in the Airbender-trailer kill some dudes too?
SamuelClayton writes:

@ SpookyCupcakes: "Different strokes for different folks," funny, I don't remember anyone saying that in response to Roger Ebert's review of the film on WP. I guess only positive feedback to Kick-Ass should be "respected."

@ AYT BALL: Looking to "stir sh*t on other posts, like The Hurt Locker and Avatar?" What, like this?


Yeah, I sure was "stirring sh*t" on there, making reasoned arguments and then hearing tcu21's point of view.

And also since I'm samuel I dont grasp the concept that the internet =/= real life therefore having arguments about an independant superhero film on a movie site makes you look retarded

on April 17th, 2010 at 4:19:38 PM

@ Freudian_Nightmare: I'm certainly not going to argue with you about the quality (or lack thereof) of Transformers or Twilight, or how depressing their successes were.

And it's true that Kick-Ass is not the first film to mix violence and children, but the problem is it's attitude towards it. The big tipping point, for me, was when that cop voices his concerns on the murders before the film jumps right back into the violence.

@ SamuelClayton NO, thats not the thread i was referring to, try this one...


your "reasoned arguments" are tainted with little power struggle comments like "wrong again" and "that means what to me?" while quoting all positive reviews the movie your defending has gained.

But when we all seem pretty happy with Kick ass, your not ok with that? and really, calling me a big baby?! lol come on now! your not 5 and besides you alread used that one on sigourney weaver. And im fine with people not liking kick ass, fine with ebert not liking it, IF you bothered to read a single thing i said about it my issue was that he, LIKE YOU, decides to judge people that enjoy it. Something i would never do.

You also had a go at another guy for not liking the hurt locker....

"@ BigUnit: Gee, should I be surprised that the biggest whiner of The Hurt Locker's success would have picked the fanboy favorites? Let me guess, you also think The Dark Knight is one of the best films ever made?"

that was you wasnt it? and im the troll looking for fights? lol silly little man

@SamuelClayton: How is that attitude different from anything Quentin Tarantino has ever done? She's a raised killer, she's supposed to have that attitude. I'm not saying that Big Daddy should win any "Father of the Year"-awards, but tha's how she's raised. She's brainwashed. And this isn't serious. This meant too be retarded fun. And Hit-Girl doesn't have any more worse impact on youth culture than anything ever has before.

And to cheer you up, it seems like Kick-Ass ain' doing so good on the box-office.

Wow, you're even worse than I thought if you can't even handle those kinds of debates. Did you throw tantrums in school when the teacher corrected your tests?

And if you had seen BigUnit's previous comments, you would see that my observations were right on the money.

So thank you for proving my points more eloquently than I ever could.

SamuelClayton writes:
on April 17th, 2010 at 4:51:38 PM

@ Freudian_Nightmare: But the difference between something like Kill Bill and Kick-Ass is that Quentin Tarantino's film takes place in a sort bizzaro "Movie" reality, where it's established pretty early on that the setting is a totally alternate sort of universe. Kick-Ass demands a realism with its "normal people as superheroes" premise, and then goes on to gleefully engage in over-the-top violence that disregards its victims far worse than Kill Bill.

And I still think that scene with the cop is a huge problem. Matthew Vaugh, please don't call my attention to the reprehensibility of this whole movie and then shrug it off. Better to force me into being shocked at how reprehensible it is and just stick to your comic vision.

As for box office, I sort of knew that an R-rated film based on an obscure comic book was never going to make huge waves.

@SamuelClayton - facts like critical acclaim? interesting, since kick ass has some great reviews....anyway, got the feeling sac was biting his tongue, dont wanna speak for him but your comments came across as very "holier than thou" which is why i made the comment i did, to remind everyone it was just a debate.

Now to address the other dribble, you point the finger at me saying a cry etc because people dont agree with my views, those views being the movies i like right? yet BIGUNIT likes what he likes and you disagree.....so you give him sh*t......that sort of seems like what you just accused me of, doesnt it? mmmm

and really slagging off the dark knight on here is the biggest troll thing you could do, no one had even mentioned it so you really were trying to stir some sh*t with that one.

As for what i can handle, well, i can handle anything you come up with, your just a pompous little man venting online, face to face, this would be a much more interesting conversation, pretty sure you wouldnt call me a cry baby, or anything else for that matter, so your comments and attempts at getting a rise out of me just come across as....whats the word..."CUTE", keep it coming sweet cheeks ;-)

This is how Super Hero movies should be, I totally hated the Spider-Man movies (way to much love story, not enough Spider-Man). I am so glad they made a movie for adults. Who cares what the little girl says, good god stop thinking that kids are all little versions angels. At her age I was swearing like a sailor (I grew up in a poor area where saying the "F" word was as natural as asking about the weather) I know that with the advent of the web kids are no longer the innocent little vessels they once were. I have heard kids as young as 8 dropping F-bombs as if it was the 1st word they ever uttered.
To complain about the language she uses is totally missing the point this is not the average comic book movie it is after all rated "R". This movie totally belongs to Hit-Girl, from the moment she comes on screen to the last scene it belongs to her. The theater we were in was roaring with laughter and after Hit-Girls first fight scene a woman two seats over utter for all to hear "I Love that little girl", The movie does drag when the scene shifts away from HG & BD, but it was well worth the price of admission. My wife who normally flinches when most swears are uttered laughed harder than I did at HG, and loved the movie so much that even today she has been talking about it. This movie should be seen by all those who say they love comic books.
I have been collecting comics since 1971, and now I can finally say that they actually made a movie based on a comic that got it right.

Wow, AYT, I'm just astonished. I don't meet too many people who have absolutely no shame at all and are willing to make utter fools of themselves for no reason. Do you have some sort of mental disorder?

Because I can't think of any other reason why you would lie about a previous online discussion that YOU YOURSELF posted for all to see. You realize that all someone has to do to find out the truth about what me and SACdaddy discussed is to read what you linked, right? So when you say stupid sh*t like, "facts like critical acclaim?" someone can just look up the discussion and find out that, no, those were NOT the "facts" we were discussing. I mean, you're actually providing the means to make yourself look like a jackass, I don't even have to do anything anymore to embarrass you.

And as I've said before, but keep ignoring, the situation with BigUnit is totally different, but hey, why let reality get in the way of your bullsh*t, right?

And to answer your last question, no, I wouldn't call you names to your face, since I don't pick on people with mental defects. But since this is the internet, and I'm holding on to Freudian_Nightmare's intelligent argument, and since nothing is keeping you from leaving, I'm willing to call you out for what you are this time.

@ SamuelClayton lol ok sammy boy,....when i said you were referring to using FACTS like critical acclaim and then posted a link.....

"The Hurt Locker was THE most critically acclaimed and awarded film of 2009. It places at #15 on the "They Shoot Pictures, Don't They?"'s aggregated database of the most acclaimed films of the 21st Century. It was #1 ranked on MCN's and Rotten Tomatoes' list of the most acclaimed films of 2009 by a healthy margin. It swept nearly every critics award for Best Picture, including the Los Angeles, New York, and National Society of Film Critics"

that was you using CRITICAL ACCLAIM to back your argument, pretty sure no one on here cares what you said in previous posts, but anyone that does read the way you were attempting to talk down to SAC (calling his liking of certain movies "SILLY") will see exactly who the bullsh*tter is between us, but like i said, keep it coming little man ;-)

@ SamuelClayton - lol ok i will address everyone of those, and lets face it you just scanned back through for the last 20 mins looking for the good bits, but its cool...

"and im sure hit girl would say it so i will speak for her....f*ck YOU!!" - yep ebert attacked me for my views without me having any possible way of hitting back, so i stand by that, and i have still refered to him as Mr Ebert and Sir in all other posts.

"we shall call it TEAM MOANY f*ck" - yes, people were talking about those that like the movie being part of a society that they have no interest in, people that get cheap thrills from violence and swearing, they generalised me and people with similar views, i returned the insult, saying i was happily part of TEAM KICK ASS and generalising them as TEAM MOANY f*ck, i stand by that too, still fighting fire with fire.

"people are taking crap for expressing thier dislike of Eberts comments, that is attacking freedom of speech" - someone else actually said it was freedom of speech to call Ebert names, another person asked what the freedom of speech comment was referring to and i explained it. Not sure your point on that one, but i stick by it.

"the movie stays true to the comic and the comic was never intended to be seen by parental eyes." - again, very true, romantic comedies arent made for me but i dont judge those that enjoy them and i dont think it will make the world a soppy place like kick ass wont make the world a violent place, i stand by that too.

"i was just wondering if you have a link to the movie you made? id really like to see how it should be done.....no? the script you wrote then?.....no? really?" - someone pulled apart every aspect of the movie, again more attacking people for enjoying it by calling aspects of it dumb and childish, implying those that like it are just retarded fan boys etc. And i said in the rest of my reply, if you dont like it thats fine, but if your going to attack something in such detail, maybe you should know a little more about the subject, no better than a sport fan with a beer belly shouting at the team to try harder, i stand by that.

"keep it coming sweet cheeks ;-)" - what?? i think sweet cheeks suits you ;-)

@SamuelClayton: I really don't consider Reservoir Dogs taking place in a "Bizarro world". It's gritty and pretty realistic. Sure, Kick-Ass use the premise of ordinary people, but lets face it: it's nothing ordinary about Hit-Girl. As soon as the "Winged Man" has a rendevouz with the pavement, all sort of realism is left behind.

And that cop-scene you refering to, sure it goes back to violence afterwards, but not the same kind. Then it is Hit-Girl taking revenge for her daddy. The same playfull tone that took place before is now gone. Sure, they gave it some flavour to please the eye, but it was no difference to any other actionfilm.

@ Freudian_Nightmare: Well, if we're talking about Reservoir Dogs, that film never enjoys the cruelty dished out by Mr. Blonde on that cop. In Kick-Ass, we are invited - demanded, in fact - to revel in the brutal carnage dished out by Hit-Girl. Matthew Vaughn fixates, in full-color detail, and cackles at every single death blow, and sneers (along with many of the fans of Kick-Ass, apparently) at anyone would doesn't do the same. Sorry if that makes me square, but I just don't find an 11 year-old girl killing people (in one case a fleeing innocent) to be that funny.

And your observation about the unrealistic aspects of Kick-Ass is...sort of one of the big problems of the film. In the beginning, Aaron Johnson goes into this big speech about how a normal person could be a superhero in the "real world," but then we see a little girl taking on a whole gang of armed guards. This is yet another example of Matthew Vaughn wanting to have his cake and eat it too, insisting through extensive narration on Kick-Ass' own realism before going completely over-the-top in its action. If the film had just shut up and run with its own absurd premise, I would have been okay with the cartoonishness.

@ trailertrash: *yawn* Yet another tiresome attempt to label people who don't enjoy watching a psychologically abused kid stabbing an innocent person just for the hell of it as "old", "pussies", "conservatives", or whatever other machismo insults they can think of. And I never called myself the "conscience of WP," I'm not sure where you got that from. I'm speaking for myself, here.

Don't want you to change your opinion. Just expressing mine. If you think it was a great movie, or even a perfect movie then make your argument.

Or if you want you can insult me to your heart's content. But although it might make you feel better, it does very little to change my opinion. Or dispute anything that I pointed out in my argument against Kick Ass supposed greatness.

I think that the majority of the scene that was supposedly shot with the teddy bear camera could have been shot using one fixed camera. But the fact that they used so many different shots from different angles was a bit over the top. My opinion is that it would have been better if they tried to stick with what that had set up, which they didn't.


Not trying to come off like I know anything more then anyone else. My opinion was asked for and I gave it. When I make an argument I state actual points that reinforce my opinion.
So you are saying that a person's opinion on a movie doesn't matter unless they have written, directed, or produced their own movie?

Because if you are then that means that every single person's comment and opinion, that was asked for, should be quickly deleted for being worthless.

Well, except for the actual movie makers in the bunch. You guys are allowed to have opinions on movies according to AYT BALL.


Okay I'm going to spell this out for you because you seem to be the slowest person posting on any of these Kick Ass comment threads. You can talk sh*t about Roger Ebert all you want on a website that he'll probably never stumble upon, but there's one FACT that you need to realize.

At best you've been posting your sad little comments all over the internet for a decade, perhaps a little longer, but I seriously doubt it. Frankly, someone that had been doing it longer then that would have to be better at it then you are.

Roger Ebert has been writing professionally for at least 40 years. You getting into an internet comment argument with him would be like Pee Wee Herman taking on Muhammad Ali in his prime.

Do I agree with every single thing that Ebert has ever said?

Hell no! He has said some dumbass sh*t, and biggest claim to fame is writing "House 2". But the man has the experience and writing ability to make you spontaneously enter the fetal position and cry for your mommy, if the two of you ever somehow managed to get involved in a internet pissing contest.

@ JohnZee - you may not be trying to come off like you know more than anyone else but thats more or less what your saying when you make comments about peoples own personal views on the movie like "saying that is was anywhere near perfection is utter bullsh*t".....how can you tell someone what their version of a perfect movie is? you then talk about the production, from camera angles, script (which you called "amateurish sh*t."), character development etc etc, comments like that make it sound like you know more than us fools that enjoyed it, everyone is entitled to an opinion, but if you bitch at someone for stating thiers then someone like me will pick holes in the things you said, if your gonna give it out then learn to take it. More than happy to talk to you about movies you liked or didnt, but when you talk down to people for expressing their views people lose interest in yours.

One side note about the teddy cam, to me they were sitting watching a single shot, but the screen actually pans in to show us the viewer the big picture, when it shows those guys watching it, it starts and ends with the single shot, think it was just some creative license to show what happened.

People who say that anything is perfect are wrong. Everything has flaws, it is just a part of life. And trying to say that Kick Ass is perfect is a gross exaggeration of anything that it could have possibly been, even it had been much better then it actually was. "Perfect" isn't even a word that should be used to describe some of the best movies that have ever been made.

Let me clarify, people can have an opinion that they like Kick Ass all day long, but someone trying to say that it was perfect, as in an example of perfection is wrong. Not a perfect movie, not even on the list of movies that some misguided fools might call "perfect". Saying that it is perfect is like saying it is the best movie that had ever been made or ever will be made, and it certainly ain't that.

The wrong word was used, and I was expressing my opinion on just how wrong I thought that word was. It was an incredibly bold claim, and impossible to justify.

My perception is different from others, and my opinion is based upon my perceptions. Each of us brings a part of our own little way we perceive the world into our comments about our opinions. I am certainly not trying to prove any point about me knowing more then anyone else. Just expressing my opinion. Do you want me to apologize that when I watch a film that I consider many more things then the size of the tits and hardness of the nipples of the women in a picture?

I'd suggest you go ahead and pick apart every single comment I have made. Line by line and word for word. Spend as much time as you want to and make sure to show that I am completely wrong each and every time.

Junior High tactics, and I certainly don't fear them. And there might just be something in all of your effort and tedious obsession that might inflict a minor annoyance in me.

That would be mildly impressive.

Please go ahead, my work is done for tonight,and I need a good laugh.

@Johnzee, I always thought people can use whatever word they feel necessary in regards to opinions on things, u know within reason(moralisticly, a word? possibly, the right spelling? very doubtful) but its just maybe how they go about presenting it. I personally called it near perfect for me due to it nearly giving me everything i would have wanted from it, i like films that dont take themselves seriously, i like alot of comic book films, fun violence, great action sequences, a sense of humour close to my own, good soundtrack, i could go on blah blah-ing away but theres no need, i enjoyed this film alot both times iv seen it, its impossible for everyone to like the same film or band or tv show, that i do believe, but hype and the majority of positive reviews proves theres not really anything weird about what we're saying when we say we like it or whatever

You know looking at the figures, and the box office receipts for Kick Ass, it doesn't look that it is even going to do the $30 million opening weekend that the makers predicted that it would. And this was after a major piece of hyping across the board.

Now although there's little doubt that they will make the money back that they put into the project (I'm hearing anywhere between $28 million to $31 million, but that's production cost only and doesn't account for the hype before the movie was released, and certainly not all of that was free.)

But the problem is that if it is not a major runaway hit, which is doubtful since some news sources are saying that Kick Ass didn't even break $8 million it's first day of it's opening weekend.

And I don't see this movie increasing in popularity and ticket sales.

Let me clarify. My opinion is that there is no doubt that pre-release movie hype played a huge part in this film's ability to draw in the $8 million that it did. But now that the movie is out, doubtful that there will be a big increase in audiences.

So it probably won't get much better for Kick Ass as far as ticket sales.

And there can be little doubt that the "fanboy" audience has solidly gotten behind this movie, endorsing it with the wild abandon of a Tea Party fanatic supporting a certain Alaskan ex-governor.

If this movie doesn't start bringing is much better numbers it could possibly set off a chain reaction.

Studios could start thinking that just because the "fanboy" crowd likes a movie hook, line, and sinker, that doesn't mean that the movie will be a highly profitable success.

Movie studios and movie distributors aren't looking for movie projects that break even, just barely paying off ALL of the costs that it took to produce,advertise and any other costs along the way.

Unless the movie is a critical success. But I'm not talking "fanboy" critical success. I'm talking movie reviewers, movie industry critical success.

And even those that loved this movie and thought it was perfection would have to agree that whatever audience that the makers of Kick Ass was trying to impress, the non-fanboy, non-geek movie reviewers weren't it.

And the fact that the movie was made with out of pocket money and not a studio means that the movie industry wasn't willing to pay for this film if it was going to be made the director wanted it. And although it was his right to pay for the film that he wanted to get made the way he wanted to make it.

If it isn't a nice profitable success for him and the distributors. The fact that he balked the studios and can't claim the movie as an actual profitable success could prove to show that the studio's were right for not just handing the money over to him.

So doubtful that the movie will
And it could also mean that the movie industry itself won't consider it a critical success by their standards. It was after all a project that standard Hollywood didn't see the value in making.

So not high enough end profits. And taking away the "fanboy" critical support, there's just not a lot of support that this movie was a critical success.

And it could be a sign to the major studios that the "fanboy" market is not as lucrative as they though. Could end up with a scaling down of "fanboy" projects.

Or at least and over all restructuring of all "fanboy" projects. Like Marvel/Disney is doing where they make super heroes movies, but on tight budgets, cutting every single dime they can. Paying actors, directors, and any other worker on the production staff the barest minimum that they can possibly be paid.

Which will lead to lower quality movies. Same reason those blackploitation movies are so damn suck ass when compared to regular movies made during that time.

(Understand there were some of those blackplotiation movies that were not that bad and even somewhat enjoyable, but even Quentin Tarantino would admit that a lot of crap was made for that type of movie.)

It could not only lead to an establishing of "fanboy" movies as a less quality subcategory of film, but an overall rejection of those types of movies by the mainstream audience.

Which would be bad for the American comic book industry, which has gotten severely dependent on the movie industry.

Oh well, time will tell.
I could be wrong and Kick Ass could suddenly post impressive numbers for its entire weekend opening.

As a fan of super hero movies I certainly hope so...
on April 18th, 2010 at 12:31:58 AM

@Johnzee, didnt people say the same about Snakes on a Plane??? Stop with the 'lectures', cheers! The budget was put together by Vaughan getting independant backers and using his own money, no studio money, studio prob only spent 10mill-15mill on ads etc(which is literally nothing to them i hear)((lets ignore the merchandising and future dvd/blu-ray sales too)) because im sure they were actually pretty confident from test screenings etc that word of mouth would help the longetivity of its gross, i doubt many thought it would make its budget back in its opening week/weekend, anything above 15mill is a bonus because oh yes people, there are other countries outside of the US where it cacn make money, UK is small but its doing extremely well, im sure its doing great in Iceland too

Damn, you guys have been keeping busy.

@SamuelClayton: We are supposed to like the torture in Reservoir Dogs, hence the music. The music breaks the wall of realism and we are invited to dance along. Sure, we still feel Mr Blonde is a despicable person and we feel for helpless cop, but there's a reason that scene is a cult-classic. And where do Hit-Girl kill an innocent running bystander? The people Big Daddy and Hit-Girl kill are all bad guys.

@JohnZee: Perfection doesn't have to mean that a movie is the greatest ever. A movie being perfect means it perfect for what it is. Example: For me, Dog Soldiers and Frontiere(s) represent perfect movies. Neither is Oscar-worthy, but they know what they are and never tries to be more than thar. Kick-Ass knows what it is for kind of movie and takes it to perfection.

@ JohnZee - your opening line saying "people that think anything is perfect are wrong", then why is their a word perfect? Look, everyones idea of perfection is different, you think a mother has ever looked at her new born baby and said "well hes ok but hes not perfect"? is it not possible to have perfect weather for a BBQ? my point is, if i want a movie to be something, and it lives up to my expectations in every way, then is that not perfect? or would you rather everyone look for imperfections when they are enjoying something so much? Its great that your interested in all the aspects of the movie, its great that you pay so much attention to how its structured (more people should then we would get better quality movies coming our way). But to call someone out on their own personal feelings and talk down to them for it....just pointless, because thats all people will see and then wont even bother listening to your views. I didnt say i would pick apart your words as a threat, i said someone like me would get their back up from comments like yours, it was advise more than anything. Hope that makes things a little clearer

Yes that was my opening comment, there was alot more to come but we can focus on that, no problem, in that post i talk about him putting down a movie that wasnt aimed at him and his generation and that im not trying to be cool by liking it, i just honestly like it. His comments suggested its become cool to like this movie and that its not a world or even group of people he wants to be a part of. My comments cover that....annnnnyway, happy riding cowboy! ;-)

Wow @Samuel, I'm really trying to understand your fixation with trying to bring down folks on here. Like has been said countless times, if you don't like it, fine. But when you go off on folks for liking it and name call and give sh*t, you yourself become what you are so-called championing against.
I don't know Ayt from a can of paint but to go off and call him a cry baby etc is pointless. Personally, I don't see where he's crying at all. If anything YOU come off as the biggest whiner on here. I get it, you have a problem with Hit-Girl's scenes and how her violence and the violence against her is depicted and how this film seems to say it's ok because that's the world we like in. I get your point up to that point. I'm not making excuses for the world but guess what? Love it or hate it, that's how things are nowadays.
If I was watching the news and the report came over to say a random 11 yr old girl was beaten up by adults to withni an inch of her life, EVERYONE on here, I repeat, E V E R Y O N E on here would be outraged and disgusted.
But that report takes a whole different tone when it's prefaced with the fact that the 11 yr old girl has had a history of brutal beatings and killings comitted by her.
That's one of the points I feel this film makes. Certain things take on a different perspective when you look at all the facts.
And I hate to reference it because #1 it's a complete fantasy movie not set in anything close to our reality, and #2 it wasn't visually shown but where's the outrage against the Star Wars preguel where all those kids were intentionall slaughtered?
I know I know, it's a reach but it's debateable.
Just don't like a film and move on, as I've stated before.
Hanging around causing unneccesary greif is just being one of those "trolls" you seem to be very critical of.

I think so far this would have to be the best comic book movie i have seen! It never really got boring and was always entertaining. And that Chloe Moetz girl was fantastic.

Seen it twice now, the second time i went there were some parents taking their young children to see and a grandmother taking her grandson. I expected them to be leaving halfway through, but the they enjoyed it more than the kids!

I really have to hope that all the kids on here, and elsewhere, actually outgrow their sophomoric rationalizing of the decline and decadence of films, music and books (if they read them...) and instead choose to support decency, rather than cheerlead the destruction of moderation and sensibility.

@Mink (never thought I'd type THAT again) Here's the thing with me:

In my mind, this world isn't getting any better. It's only getting more violent, more vulgar, and more corrupt than it already is, until it finally destroys itself. Why try and kid myself into naivety by watching films with messages of joyous hope and peace, when in reality, the world will never get to peace without extreme amounts of violence? Maybe I'm just overly cynical and pessimistic, but I'd rather embrace the changing of times, then keeping stuck in dream world.

One thing I loved about this story, is that it has a message of hope and positive action, but in a more realistic way. (even though it is very over the top) That realistic way includes physically removing the evil. Not trying to debate it out, or convert it.
