In looking at the reviews of this movie, I found a lot of 5 Star super fans.  Apparently this is made from a real comic book or something, so maybe that is where the rabid fans came from.  If you are a huge fan of Kick-Ass, then feel free to jump into the comments section and try to convince me, cause I that it was terrible.  Not from the violence standpoint (it’s disconcerting for some people to see young kids in extremely violent situations and involved in drug use, etc which is far from the usual) because I can deal with that.  It’s not just because I’m not a big fan of Super Hero movies.   I yawned at  The Dark Knight, Spiderman 1,2,3,4 et. al, any of the The Dark Knight, Spiderman, Captain America, Wolverine, Justice League crap.  And it’s not because it’s really a nerdy teen movie, which I can deal with.  It’s just to me that this whole movie was just plain silly.   And not silly in a fun way.  Damon Wayans’ Blankman, although not great cinema, has a few good laughs in it, and is somewhat interesting.  But this junk just never started for me.

Trust me, the credits to me were far better than the movie, and perhaps they should have just considered releasing the credits and dropping the price a bit.   🙂

Nicholas Cage probably has the worst role I’ve ever seen him in since Birdy, which was a LONG time ago!  

Basically this is a story of a nerdy teen who can’t get the girl, but who thought it odd that nobody does pick up a costume and pretend to be a super hero.  So he tries it.   It doesn’t work out too well, but a little bit of luck and he inspires a whole bunch of fanatical freaks to copy him and join the team.   Then is when the fun is supposed to start, but but for me it never did.  Disney’s Spy Kids was a better story, and it’s a movie you could take kids to.  I don’t think you’d want to take kids under 16 to this one.

Now I know there are probably lots of you who love superhero movies, and may enjoy this, although no one actually IS a super hero or does anything extraordinary at all, and for you, I’m sorry for the negative review, but for me.  I’m sorry I even watched this.  I thought it was one of the worst I’ve seen in a long, long time.
