So I had heard plenty of good things about this movie, so I made up my mind and went to go see it. I didn’t know what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised. So the premise is simple, kid has good intentions and becomes a costumed superhero. He gets in over his head and things unravel. This is by no means and academy award movie but it plays off like a comic book. Some parts are narrated which makes the film more personal and it doesn’t seem to take itself way too serious. Not saying that its over the top but some things are hard to believe. The movie carries a good pace and overall a good experience. The lead role becomes secondary to the acting and performance of “hit girl” and nic cage does a very good job as an Adam west inspired vigilante. The score is cheesy and at times annoying but it’s just a minor detail in an otherwise solid movie. Now this isn’t for everyone because it is a bit bloody. There’s some good humor and the blend of both makes it enjoyable. The target audience would be from young teens to mid thirty adults, although I did see an older senior couple enjoying themselves. If you’re into comical movies that are just a nice escape and fun for 2 hours then go watch kick ass. Regardless at least rent it because it’s worth it.
