4.0 out of 5 stars The difference between SUPER and KICKASS..., 3 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Super [DVD] [2010] (DVD)
NO SPOILERS

For me, the difference can be summed up in one sentence: KICKASS, despite its dark moments, is at heart a funny, feel-good movie; SUPER, despite its comic moments, is at heart a dark tragedy.

Anyone who thinks that one of these movies is a ripoff of the other hasn't seen them. They start from the same basic premise, then shoot off in totally different directions.

If you've seen one of them and liked it, I'm pretty sure you'll also like the other - but you'll find you have a definite favourite.

I like them both. Giving SUPER four stars instead of five is purely a matter of personal preference - I preferred the lightness of touch in KICKASS, and I really, really, REALLY wish that SUPER hadn't... um... no, I can't say more without a major spoiler.

I like SUPER, and I'm glad I bought it, and I'll watch it several more times, I'm sure. But each time, I'll probably watch KA afterwards to cheer myself up again.

But anyway, DEFINITELY recommended!!!

Hi, just saw it a couple of days ago and have to say, that your way to sum up the difference of the two movies hits the bull's eye (imho). Good review and helpful.

Spoiler alert for anyone reading this who hasn't seen the movie!!!!)

Thanks! I hope you enjoyed the movie - in the time that's passed since I wrote the review I've come to feel that I MUCH prefer Kickass. Mainly because of the death of my most favourite character in Super!!

After laughing uncontrollably the first time around at the sheer silliness of a guy walking around in a ridiculous red costume whacking people over the head with a pipe wrench I was surprised watching it again at how dark it often is. I'd agree that there is a fair amount of tragedy thrown in with the (often brilliant) comedy. A well made and very peculiar film.
