Now that you've seen it, what did you think? Its been exactly 2 years, 27 days since we first learned that Matthew Vaughn would be adapting John Romita Jr and Mark Millar's ultra-violent comic book series Kick-Ass. The finished movie arrives in theaters this weekend and it's time to hear your thoughts about it. How does it compare to the comics? Is it better or worse? Is the movie as awesome as everyone is saying it is? Is Hit Girl the best character in the movie? Was Roger Ebert wrong to give it 1 star in his review? Or is it not that good? If you've seen it, then leave a comment below and let us know what you thought of Kick-Ass!
To fuel the fire, Kick-Ass is currently my favorite movie of the year so far. I've seen it twice and I completely and thoroughly love it. It packs a punch from start to finish, transcends the family friendly nature of most comic book movies in the wildest of ways, and is just the perfect bit of cinematic entertainment. My favorite scene was the strobe light fighting scene, which blew me away for being both beautifully shot and incredibly intense at the same time. I loved all of the characters, even Red Mist and especially Hit Girl and Kick-Ass, and I can't wait to see the sequel. Kick-Ass really was one of the best recent comic book movies I have seen!
What did you think of Kick-Ass? One of the best comic book movies ever or one of the worst?
