Kicked ***! Especially the nod to James Bond near the end of the film.

This was a movie I enjoyed, but did not like much. Definitely an acceptable movie for an outing with friends.

This is how Allegory does praise for media of non Japanese origin.

I walked out of the movie grinning like mad, chatting with my friends about "I loved this part" "Oh, this part was amazing!" But when I thought about it, I can't say it was a "good movie." It was, however, the most entertaining movie I have seen in a long time. So it wasn't necessarily good, but it was incredibly entertaining.

I think the best definition would either be "Superbad Meets Kill Bill" or "Spiderman meets Kill Bill." Maybe combining all three of those.

Without a doubt the movie is hilarious to someone around my age range. Older and you'll likely be offended by the gratuitous violence and terrible language; younger than 17 and you'll likely be disturbed by the same thing.

Ok, well, realistically any teen would be fine with them, but you're SUPPOSED to be traumatized.

I haven't seen it yet, but from the trailers it looks like you'd want to sprinkle some Mystery Men in there, too.

I thought it was pretty good. I'd have liked it to be a pinch more actiony, but I guess that wasn't the point of the movie. I didn't like that they killed off Big Daddy but I suppose that feed fuel to Hit-Girl's fire.

It wasn't a MASTERPIECE OF CINEMATIC BRILLIANCE, but it's definately worth seeing.

Also, you can say, "***." It's not word filtered. :D

Just wanted to be sure with the titles, don't want to invoke Kao's "Kids can see it" wrath.

Kickass had fun and creative action scenes, which is why it was enjoyable. But most of the movie was pretty bad. The main character was terribly uninteresting and annoying. Many of the jokes were fairly predictable.

You need to watch American movies more. Superbad? Zombieland? The uninteresting protagonist character is the new purple.

They are games and not movies, but I always thought the Final Fantasy games were made in Japan... unless Japan has had their share of uninteresting lead characters too. Smiley: winkSmiley: tongue

He was over-the-top uninteresting, which caused him to appear slightly psychotic, thereby making him somewhat interesting.

Also, he could dance.

I don't read comics. Never really have. But I can respect maintaining the consistency.
Were I to be a reader of comics and had read this comic, I still probably wouldn't have liked that. :P

It was good & certainly a decent adaptation of the source material. I do have a gripe though. Something only added to the movie & not part of the source material that I felt really took away from the "this could happen" narrative.

Gripe, thy name is jet pack.

There was no need. Seriously.

Hit Girl, like her comic book counterpart, was spectacular.

Hey, I really liked Zombieland. Sure, the main character was a dweeb on the outside, but his inner dialogue was funny and practical. He's one of the few humans to continue to survive the Zombie Apocalypse, and that's no mean feat. His face may be plain, but his work ethic, meticulousness and common sense make him a force to be reckoned with.

But he's such an awkward person. I was cringing through half the movie, especially the last part of it.

Woody, though... now that's a badass person, but with a sensitive side as well.

He didn't make me cringe.

See the discussion in the Twighlight thread. I obviously liked the nerd more than the butch good ol' boy.

But obviously I can see if you had to share a prison cell for 20 years, which you'd pick.

I just watched Kick *** on Friday night, and I loved it.

I just watched Zombieland this week, and I loved that, too.

And I guess I'm one of the few chicks who thought that the main character in Zombieland was really cute. Smiley: glare

I thought she was pretty cute as well. Oh wait, you mean the guy?

I'm kidding (Ari, read this), I sort of liked him as well. You can't help it because each character is the definition of certain character traits, exaggerated and isolated for effect. They're so stereotypical, you're bound to connect with something in either of them.

Woody Harrelson is the superhero butch guy who kicks *** and drinks copious amounts of JD while doing so. Jesse Eisenberg is the nerdy, awkward guy who can't get with the ladies. Emma Stone plays the babe and Abigail Breslin plays the independent kid who invokes protective feelings and stuff.

I came to like each character for different things. Woody for his ***-kicking abilities, Jesse for his practical approach to things, Emma for her beauty and Abigail for her independence and willingness to learn. I'm sure others connect differently, depending on age and gender and such.

Cue some random OOT'er with 'I didn't connect with any of them, you ***'.

Partial admin is partial. Smiley: frown

And I liked Superbad as well. The movies aren't unappealing, they're just taking a slightly different approach to the well-used story of the zero who became a hero. Usually the movies tend to focus on the guy after he became the hero, but these movies focus on the guy before and while he makes the change from one to the other.

I also loved Superbad, but whenever I stop and think about it, it's such a terrible plot. The whole idea is to get alcohol to get these girls drunk enough to have *** with them. Kinda leaves me feeling icky if I think about it too much.

Granted, the movie is hilarious.

Saw this movie last night and overall I loved it! The beginning was terribly lame and I was having major doubts but once the action picked up it was sweet. Hit Girl walking into the bad guys headquarters and shooting the guards was one of the greatest movie scenes of all time as far as im concerned :P Also the gun fight while Big Daddy is being burned was pretty amazing too.
