Action, Comedy
Director Matthew Vaughn had to finance Kick-Ass on his own, because the studios wanted to avoid a violent, profane R-rated comic-book movie with teenagers (and one pre-teen) killing bad guys. But he’s beaten the studios at their own game, making an entertaining, fulfilling and all-around better superhero movie. The story about everyday people becoming costumed heroes is punctuated by strong performances and unforgettable action sequences, each with its own energy and look. The star attraction is clearly Hit-Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz), a butterfly-knife-wielding, foul-mouthed small fry in a purple wig.

Chicago Reader Good or Famous? Kick-Ass: a timely tale about civic-mindedness in the era of reality TV and viral video. by Jonathan Joe 04/15/2010
Colorado Springs Independent Opening this week Date Night, Letters to God, The Metropolitan Opera: Hamlet Encore and more. 04/08/2010
Charleston City Paper You either like video game violence and girl assassins or you don't Kick-Ass begins with a suicide played for laughs and climaxes with a man being shot out of a window with a bazooka. If Xbox body counts and snarky teenage boys are your idea of entertainment (and Hollywood has spent billions appealing to such fans), then Kick-Ass may be your bag. Everyone else, abandon all hope ye who enter this tedious, crudely plotted, soulless action film. by Felicia Feaster 04/14/2010
