I would be lying to you if I said I’m not super super excited about this movie. For the same reason why I enjoyed Watchmen, Kick-Ass takes a different approach to comic books. However, instead of going for a sense of realism or humanism, this particular comic took the path that any male within the 13 – 40 year-old demographic would enjoy: Over the top violence. The movie is based on the comic book of the same name about a teenager that decides to go out and fight crime as a masked vigilante and meets others who do the same. One of those people in particular is a little girl who goes by the name of Hit-Girl. Now before you write this movie off or put on your skeptical face, check out the trailer below. And remember, since it is Red Band, it’s NSFW because of language and OVER THE TOP VIOLENCE (*guitar shred*):
Shmoh my goodness. Shmamazing. Kick-Ass kicks ass in theaters April 16, 2010. It’s going to be, dare I say, kick-ass?
