In truth, there is barely enough story here to make a film.

It is interesting even when nothing much happens, which is for most of its 3-hour running time. Read full review

Surprisingly good. From the trailers it looked like a low-brow, juvenile, comic-book teen movie. Turns out it is quite funny, reasonably well structured, solidly directed and well acted.

Good fun. The ironic tropes are maybe a little overplayed, the convenience of the plot movements can be a bit cringey, and I always find there to be little emotional weight in the characters, but it is just damn good fun. A lot can be forgiven of a story that just enjoys itself - it's crazy, it's garish, it's full of holes, but it just drives on without leaving you too much time to pull it apart, and by the end you've had a good time. Great set pieces, and generally well acted. Ultimately, it's watchable - and, crucially, rewatchable - and refreshingly straightforward without being lightweight. Not bad at all.

OK, so what do the movies "The Godfather", "Schindler's List", "Casablanca" and "Kick-Ass" all have in common? I'll save you the effort - they were all on the IMDb list of Top 250 movies in 2010. Does anyone sense something wrong with this picture? Fortunately, that one appearance on a Top 250 list was all this film could muster, which tells me that viewers have returned to some semblance of rationality since this movie came out. I don't begrudge teenagers voting this movie up, but this just adds another reason to my oft repeated suggestion that perhaps new releases should have some sort of grace period before they enter the IMDb rating system. If a movie is any good, it will get the requisite number of votes to be considered for a top films list no matter when it was released, but the initial fanboy hysteria makes this kind of rush to judgment somewhat silly. In a more rational world, this one might even wind up on IMDb's Lowest Rated Movies List.As for some intellectual type of review for this picture, in light of my opening statement, I think it would be a moot point. Lordy mama, this was just about the dumbest thing I've ever seen. Not altogether terrible if you're a comic book fan, but if you're over say, sixteen years old I think you really need to be moving on with your life. The only reason I finished watching was because I've vowed to see a movie to it's completion as the criteria for writing a review. But this one was a chore, believe me. At least I got a kick out of the film's best line, a take-off on Spider-Man's mission statement - "With no power comes no responsibility".Along with the virtual no name cast (at least to me), I was stunned but not surprised to see Nicolas Cage take part in this effort. Making atrocious movies in recent years has become necessary for the actor because he just can't handle money, as attested by the fact that he's recently been foreclosed on any number of homes and private mansions. I hope the guy can clean up his messes so we don't have to witness another flick like the one Big Daddy appeared in.

Kick-AssMatthew Vaughn invests soul into it and keeps the reel flowing as much as he can and there is a genuine plot in it too but unfortunately not enough reasons.
