Product Description

Product Description

Based on the Marvel Comic by Mark Millar and John Romita, the Matthew Vaughn-written and directed film Kick-Ass tells the story of a regular kid who becomes a real-life superhero, even though he has no superpowers. The soundtrack which chronicles the adventure features memorable quotes from its characters, alongside songs by Mika, The Dickies, New York Dolls, Sparks, The Prodigy, Primal Scream and Ellie Goulding, along with Elvis Presleyand Taylor Momsen’s (Gossip Girl) post-grunge band The Pretty Reckless.

BBC Review

The Matthew Vaughn-directed screen adaptation of Mark Millar and John Romita Jr’s violently hilarious – or hilariously violent, if you prefer – comic Kick-Ass is a colourfully cacophonous cinema experience, taking graphically provocative risks where a less-confident team would opt for bloodless PG-friendly fare. Its boldness has been predictably divisive, with conservative critics unable to get over the 11-year-old killer hurdle slapping a one-star score on a movie worth significantly more. But this compilation-style soundtrack takes no chances: this is a safe bet, snippets of potty-mouthed dialogue comprising the only parents-prickling moments.

But what else to expect, really, from an album bearing a lead single performed by Mika. The Lebanon-born star might stand out in the narrowest of pop playing fields, but as an amalgam of obvious influences he’s never strayed into particularly envelope-pushing territories. His collaboration with Lady Gaga producer RedOne, Kick Ass, doesn’t feature prominently in the movie itself but nevertheless makes for an easy introduction to this set – it plays to the singer’s strengths, allowing his singularly appealing/excruciating (delete as appropriate) vocals to soar/plummet (likewise) while RedOne’s signature compositional style proffers the piece a modern edge. It’s got a short shelf-life, but the song’s probably the most enjoyable track Mika’s been involved with to date.

Elsewhere, with songs from The Prodigy, Primal Scream, The Dickies (their frenetic cover of the Banana Splits theme) and Sparks shorn of any on-screen context, Kick-Ass largely plays out like a generic assortment of songs you’ve already heard elsewhere. Omen, by the British dance heavyweights, complements a pivotal moment in the picture, where its protagonist is elevated from deluded teenager to internet sensation; but here, it’s simply that song from the radio, available for the nth time on a fresh compact disc. The Pretty Reckless, headed by Gossip Girl’s Taylor Momsen, contribute Make Me Wanna Die – not to be confused with Tricky’s beautiful Makes Me Wanna Die, the track’s a newly penned piece. But, as a cliché-filled dirge echoing the drearier moments of the Hole and Garbage catalogues, it’s not worth noting the band’s name for future reference.

Really only for those who are as geeky about Kick-Ass as the story’s protagonist is comic books, this is a strictly supplementary soundtrack offering. It’s unlikely, indeed, that any recipient will start going out after dark to combat crime, dressed as Mika, as a direct result of exposure. Well, one hopes. --Mike Diver

All the tracks are great, especially Make Me Wanna Die by The Pretty Reckless, Banana Splits by The Dickies and Stand Up by The Prodigy. Everything's there, except it isn't. For a start, the version of Bad Reputation on the soundtrack is by The Hit Girls, and the version in the actual movie was the original by Joan Jett. There are audio clips from the movie at the beginnings of tracks 1, 3, 5, 6, 7, 10, 12 and 13. Not bad ones, just cuts of the speech, but I personally hate that in a soundtrack/score. That's probably just me though. Also, a lot of the tracks used in the movie aren't on the soundtrack, and by that I mean the score tracks. The instrumentals composed by John Murphy, apparently. So the music from Big Daddy's fight scene isn't included, ditto the track where Hit Girl comes out of the elevator. Apart from that though, the album is great. I definitely recommend buying it.

Format: Audio CD
I'm not a music expert but I know what I like and this ranks as one of the best cds I have ever heard. I'm a little shocked that so few people have reviewed this but nevermind. There is an incredible variety of truly great music out there but this album is one of the very few that I would say is specifically uplifting. With the exception of a couple of tracks near the end I love the whole album.

Having said that it's not completely perfect. The other viewers (at this point in time) all make valid points. I will make another criticism and that is about the dialogue in between the tracks -hey, these snippets from the film are funny to listen to but my problem is that without them this cd would have been appropriate for kids, so as it stands with the swearing on the cd you can no longer responsibly play this with children around. A friend of mine runs a boxing club for young and old and if it wasn't for the inclusion of the quotes and their profanity the cd would have been perfect for his gym. However these are only minor criticisms and I am still recommending this to everybody, afterall I've got it playing all the time.

This is brilliant.

A great soundtrack to accompany a film that was wrong on so many levels but just fantastic fun and great tension. the soundtrack has some great songs in it and cool dialogue from the film, the only problem is that the dialogue is embedded in the song rather than as a separate track as you tend to find on most tarrantino soundtracks so you cant really skip past the swearing if the kids are in the car so it does limit when you can play it, but oh so worth it!!

The movie was awesome, but the music was superb!

From classics to new releases, and with clips from the movie between each track is hilarious and helps to remember those points in the film where you laughed your ass off!

It is the perfect CD for driving. I loved the film and enjoyed the music throughout. This is one of the best soundtracks out there at the moment. If you are a fan of the movie. I highly recommend it!
