Product Description

Product Description

Kick Ass tells the story of average teenager Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson), who decides to take his obsession with comic books as inspiration to become a real-life superhero. As any good superhero would, he chooses a new name -- Kick Ass -- assembles a suit and mask to wear, and gets to work fighting crime. There’s only one problem – Kick Ass has absolutely no superpowers. His life is forever changed as he inspires a sub-culture of copy cats, meets up with a pair of crazed vigilantes -- an eleven year old sword-wielding dynamo, Hit Girl (Chloë Moretz), and her father Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage) -- and forges a friendship with another fledging superhero, Red Mist (Chris Mintz-Plasse). But thanks to the scheming of a local mob boss Frank D’Amico (Mark Strong), that new alliance will be put to the test.

From Amazon.co.uk

The cinematic equivalent of a half case of Red Bull chased with donuts, Kick-Ass is a giddy, violent experience--and not your average superhero movie. Based on the comic book by Mark Millar and John Romita Jr., it offers a set of heroes who are decidedly without superpowers: Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson) decides he'll be just like a comic-book character, and puts on a ridiculous green suit to fight crime as the mysterious Kick-Ass. Luckily, somebody else had the same idea and comes along to rescue the incompetent crusader: Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage) and his daughter Hit Girl (Chloe Moretz), who also happen to be running around town wearing masks and vanquishing evil. And here we have the movie's masterstroke: Hit Girl, a pint-sized preteen who slaughters bad guys and swears like a sailor on leave (and was the focus of a measure of controversy when the movie was released). The main target of our heroes is a gangster (Mark Strong, Sherlock Holmes), whose neglected son (Christopher Mintz-Plasse, McLovin from Superbad) figures he might just pull on a costume himself and become… Red Mist! (One of the many funny things about Kick-Ass is that the superhero names are hopelessly lame.) Director Matthew Vaughn is operating at the same glib level as his Layer Cake, with cutesy song cues galore and a freewheeling appetite for cartoon violence. This means the movie's high wears off quickly, but it does get high--a crazy, hilarious kick. All that, plus Nicolas Cage executes a deadly Adam West imitation when he pulls on his cape and cowl. That's entertainment. --Robert Horton

It's 3 in a row now from director Matthew Vaughan.
Following on from his no nonsense feature debut 'Layer Cake' was the charming 'Stardust' and now this little gem.

Filmed at the same time as the comic was being written; infact the film got finished before the comic in the end - Kick Ass is a refreshing blast of comic book celluloid.

It follows the exploits of Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson) who one day, decides to become a superhero and inadvertently attracts the attention of a couple of other super dudes called Big Daddy (Nicholas Cage) and his 11 year old daughter Hit Girl (Chloe Moretz). He then becomes embroiled in their plans to bring down a rather nasty bit of work (portrayed by the ever reliable Mark Strong) as well as being the catalyst for the appearance of another wannabe real life superhero.

Without giving any of the plot away, mark my words when I tell you that if you are in the least bit offended by profanity and excessive, but wonderfully executed hyper kinetic violence - stay away. However if you like both the former and latter as well as an involving story, some laughs and some suprising human drama, then kick back - watch and enjoy Kick Ass.

I only hope that if and when a sequel is released, that it not only lives up to the standard set by this primer but exceeds it.

I will not be covering the storyline - as others seem to have done that fine - but I will say that this film has something for everyone, great storyline, great acting, plenty of action (some might say too much explicit violence - but not me, it suited the plot of the movie). It had humour in the right places, it had edge of you seat drama. The main characters were a treat to watch - let's hope there is a sequel !! You can see this movie has one of the highest star rating of any movie on Amazon.

And it's a British film - see, we can make great movies !!

Format: DVD
Based on British writer Mark Millar's comic book series, this is an ultraviolent satire from the writer/director team behind 2007's Stardust. Like that film, Kick-Ass tweaks the nipples of genre convention to create something bold, distinctive and memorable. Unlike that film, Kick-Ass's central love story is between a father and daughter, the former educating the latter by shooting her in the chest with a handgun from ten yards.

The plot concerns a normal kid, Dave Lizewski (Nowhere Boy's Aaron Johnson) - not an uber-geek or a ruffian - who dreams of being a superhero. When a mugging leaves his nerve-endings ruined, he unwittingly finds himself allied with the twisted dream team of Big Daddy (Nic Cage) and Hit Girl (Chloe Moretz) as they seek to take down the vicious crime-lord, Frank D'Amico (Mark Strong). Impalements, oversized microwaves and dual-handgun ballet ensue.

If film-making is a process of small judgements adding up to a single whole then Goldman and Vaughan get most the decisions right. The pacing is superb, with the snappy, fabulously foul-mouthed script bridging a series of thrillingly inventive set-pieces, chief among which are Hit Girl's introduction as she splatters the walls of a drug den to The Banana Splits theme song (a possible reference to the grandfather of the modern superhero movie, Richard Donner), as well as a first-person perspective rescue mission played out to a re-working of John Murphy's "Kaneda's Death" theme from Danny Boyle's Sunshine.

There are a couple of cons. D'Amico is a familiar mob boss with familiar patriarchal issues; he could have used a perversion or two aside from bloodlust.

If you're easily offended, or don't like comics/violence/juvenile humour this film isn't for you.

If you like well written, well acted, all out comic style fun with a bit of a twist you'll love it. Don't let the bright colours and comic background styling of the cover fool you (as some seem to have done!), this film is definitely for adults or older teens only. The violence starts off fairly realistic, but quickly goes to comic-y/Kill Bill style when our child protagonist appears. And what an appearance! I haven't fallen for a character so quickly in a long time, and rarely a child. Hit Girl is a joy to watch because of the joy she seems to take in her 'work', (which, by all accounts, Chloe Moretz did) and the score complements the action perfectly to enhance this perception.

I laughed out loud more times than I could count, and winced and groaned a lot too. As well as a lot of violence and 'language' this film has a lot of heart, with characters you can care about - even Red Mist is a fairly sympathetic character for a lot of the film.

This is one of only 3 films I've seen more than once at the cinema and I could have gone another 2/3 times if I had the money/time.

I can't wait for the sequel!

This 'Kick Ass' Steelbook DVD set comes in a cool black metal case, that's tricky to open and probably wouldn't like being trodden on, but it's cool none the less. Inside there's plastic inserts holding three DVDs. One is Blu-ray, and the other two are standard res DVDs: the film and 'disk 2' [the extras]. The 2 hours of bonus features include 'The making of kick-ass: A new kind of Superhero [114 mins]', The artwork of Kick-ass [storyboard and designs], the Director's commentary, and 'The comic origins of Kick-ass' featurette. The extras are on both the Blu-ray and split across the two standard DVDs, with the Blu-ray and disk 2 DVD giving ~2h of extras, while the standard film DVD has another 20 minutes of them [plus the movie of course]. The Blu-ray disk is 1080 hi-def 2.4:1 widescreen, English DTS-HD 5.1 audio, with English subtitles and English Audio description track 2 only. The DVD is English 5.1 audio with English SDH subtitles. No other languages supported. 'Special features' also include 'English Dolby Digital 2' audio. The movie run time is 1h 58mins on Blu-ray, and rated 15. As you would expect the Blu-ray looks great on my teenage sons hi-def+PS3 system, and we are happy with the standard DVDs universal play on our other systems. There doesn't seem to be an 'iPod' friendly compressed digital version of the film though [which could lose a star for some].

And to the movie itself, well it's kind of a vulgar, violent and puerile version of 'Watchmen' [OK that film was even more violent and puerile], but Kick-ass is great fun none the less and has surprisingly sensitive moments amongst the carnage.
