Kick Ass, Kicks Ass!

I didn’t really know what to expect when I went to see Kick Ass. I had heard all of the claims that the film was ultra-violent and offensive, which only made me more curious.

Surely it was just going to be another super hero movie, but with a bit of a twist?

How wrong could I have been! This film was one of the funniest, most stylish films I had seen in a long time. The film situates itself perfectly between acknowledging its roots and creating something new. The best thing for me was that it was fun! For too long super hero films have taken themselves far too seriously, but Kick Ass, for me, took itself with just the right amount of tongue in their movie making cheeks!

Aaron Johnson comes across magnificently well as the loveable loser Dave Lizewski. His american accent is great and will surely land him some more roles over the pond.

The show was stolen, however, by Hit Girl (Chloe Mortez) one of my new favourite screen characters of all time. She is funny, different, edgy and disturbed and comes away with some great one liners that should never come out of a 13 year old’s mouth.

I am going to stop now because I could go on forever, but please take it from me, Kick Ass is fantastic. You will be entertained from the start and will be standing and cheering with the rest of the audience at the great set pieces that crop up every 5 minutes.

Kick Ass is screening at macrobert Friday 21st to Monday 24th May, book your tickets now at
