I thought it was awesome seeing what they kept in the film from the comics, as well as seeing the differences!
Favorite "OH SHIT" moment?
Did you see it in costume (went as Hit-Girl to my showing!)?
**SPOILERS IN COMMENTS!!**
Favourite "OH SHIT" Moment would defiantly have to be the scene where Mother Russia takes out the cops all by herself. I think she was a total badass and I really enjoyed her final fight with Hitgirl.
& No I didn't
Every time Dave and Mindy were on screen together they were electric, a great partnership. They really spark off each other and those training scenes were good fun and they have a nice respect for each other. For me Dave and Mindy were the heart of the movie. I know the controversial ‘kiss’ has been discussed elsewhere but it didn’t seem to bother me. As long as they don’t go too far down this road, I’m cool with that. Colonel Stars was awesome and Justice Forever were brilliant (although they were underused). The ToxicMegaCunts were hilarious, MotherFucker, MotherRussia and the others, brilliant. Kick-Ass himself, great to see him become a badass superhero with some interesting costume upgrades, with a nice nod to BigDaddy when he wears his armour (should have included and emotional suiting up scene). Uncle Ralph’s cameo. Great scene, wow he is evil, He has to be the big bad for KickAss3, he had the threat and menace and intensity that the Motherfucker was lacking. Javier was a great and likeable character. The score was good, little flavours of the first score together with some new stuff. Justice Forever’s first mission and Mother Russia’s cop scene were good fun and coupled with great music. Many of the scenes mirrored the comic almost frame to frame and that was cool to see. Special mention for Eisenhower! Best scene: Not sure yet, need to watch the DVD, but I liked the ‘Dave comforts Mindy scene’ after her humiliation when Dave wears his 'I hate reboots Tshirt!' Credit to Jeff Wadlow for this was a scene that wasn’t in the comics and proof that he can write good stuff when needed.
I know Hit-Girl is awesome but she was so toned down, she should have been the ultimate badass. I was really disappointed at how lame they made Hit-Girl. She was absolutely brutal in the first movie. Reallu disappointed. The script could have done with a polish, there was some awful stuff here. I think it lacked the sharpness and wit and satire and cleverness that Jane Goldman brought for the first movie. Direction, the action scenes seemed just a little too ordinary, yes they were fun, but the action scenes in the first were exceptional. I actually feel sorry for Jeff Wadlow. There was no way he could have bettered the first movie and I think he did his best with the resources available but, as a standalone film it just seems average. The whole film definitely lacked Matthew Vaughn’s stylish direction. The ending, what happened to the superb ending in the comic with Hit-Girl in chains? Instead she’s leaving NewYork – where is she going? They should have had the guts to go with the comic ending. A lot of the nice scenes from the comic were left un-adapted, especially from the Hit-Girl Series. Although somewhat interesting, the ‘mean girls’ subplot and the High School stuff was lost on me. I want to see Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl in costume kicking ass. Nuff said.
The SIC Stick. WTF? Poor and crass pay-off to the mean girls subplot. I thought we were dealing with the real world, what was that device? The boyband ‘product placement’. Not against the group in question and I can see why they used it, but the way it was shoehorned into the movie to sell the music was clumsy and bad. Poor scene. The rape scene culminating in a joke, no no no. Rape is not funny. The bad script writing with Katie dumping Dave and Ass-Kicker’s defection. Had Jeff Wadlow actually watched the first movie??? The soundtrack, some good tunes but some of it was meh, I mean who are these people on the soundtrack? Maybe I’m getting old, but in the first movie, Matt Vaughn knew how to pick a tune.
Overall a 6 out of 10 for me. However, don’t get me wrong. I am so pleased we got the sequel, but I hope the powers that be realise that something wasn’t quite right with this film and that things have to be rectified before KickAss3 is green lit. By the way KickAss3 has to happen. I need to see this trilogy completed. But this time, don’t go large scale, keep it small scale and intense and awesome and emotional like the first movie. That is the way to go.
are really strict after the Batman shooting so I wore my HG skirt, belt, pants and boots.
Oh shit moment: every Mother Russia scene she was played brilliantly!
Favorite scene: racing Marcus home I loved it!
I don't think I can pick a favourite part! It was all so fucking awesome! I loved all of it.
There were a lot of moments when I said "OH SHIT". Like when The Mother Fucker killed Dave's dad, or when Mother Russia killed Colonel Stars and Stripes, actually, any part with Mother Russia! Bitch was strong, I was a little worried when Hit Girl went up against her, but come on! It's Hit Girl! XD She kicks ass. I also went "Oh shit!" when The Mother Fucker fell into the shark tank. I actually liked him. XD His outfit was badass! I know he survived, I was just thinking that at that moment. Poor Chris, got his dick bit off. XD
I wish I could see it again. I hope they make a third movie, I absolutely love Kick-Ass, and I want more!
I'm really annoyed with people criticizing the movie. In fact, I'm just annoyed with people criticizing everything. Can't people just sit and enjoy a movie and not have to point out every single flaw that doesn't matter? Just enjoy the film! I thought it was good. I fucking enjoyed it. That's that.
Well the set-up is definitely there for a 3rd movie! It just depends on how well the 2nd movie does and who they can get on board.
I'm glad you enjoyed it! But people are always going to analyze things. With KA2 we've got the first movie as well as the comics to compare it to. It's pretty interesting comparing the movie to the comic and seeing what they changed/kept!
Thank you again!
*Hitgirl closes her eyes, (audience is silently dying inside) ... HitGirl opens her eyes, laughs, and throws Mother Russia off*
"That's not what it's for.... It's called adrenaline, bitch!"
That. Would be my favourite scene.
"I thought a c*** like you could take a few pr***s." The whole audience laughed so much at that! Whatever else, HitGirl has her one-liners down perfectly.
I think the final fight suffered because it wasn't set in such a grand scale like it was in the comics. It would have been so much more insane had they had it in Times Square. I understand why they couldn't exactly do that, but it still would have been much better.
He's also said that The Motherfucker is going to be in the 3rd volume of comics, and that he is considering even having him kill off Kick-Ass just so it's realized how much in reality the story is set, and because Dave can't just carry on with this his whole life.
That's true, I can't help but wonder if through some form of studio magic they could have recreated parts of a Times Square for the fight.
and I'm sure they could have figured out something, set design isn't as hard as it seems to be XD
But I think theres a chance they might use the bad guy from the hit-girl comic in the next movie?Which would be the uncle that was in jail in the movie.And in the hit-girl comic.I mean maybe I'm wrong but thats kinda how it seemed.
I was thinking the same thing. I can definitely see Uncle Ralph (I'm pretty sure that's his name?) being the big villain in a 3rd movie. He'd be a lot worse than Frank, making for a pretty big-bad villain. Given that he's head of the D'amico's, I think it's only natural to have things go that way.
You know, I was thinking the same thing! Maybe it was like an instinctual reaction to turn away? Or maybe she just wasn't thinking of that?
It was pretty cool how they did that, but I have to be honest: I'm disappointed they didn't have her decapitate Mother Russia like in the comic. I was just waiting for it to happen then... it didn't. D: The comic version was just really powerful, and that would have been so hardcore to see translated on screen!
LOL you have a point there! I was kinda thinking that too: hey guys, maybe you shouldn't just sit there?
I KNOW RIGHT? Dude, she just handed you a shit-ton of money, maybe you should... oh I don't know... say thank you?
Totally agree about Katie! What gives?? All of Dave's hard work getting her in the first movie was tossed out the window just like that! Then he rebounds with Night Bitch? Lame.
Yeah I don't know exactly HOW they do that, but it still looked gross. Not exactly realistic, but still gross. Guess we can't analyze Kick-Ass too much for realism LOL.
Maaaaaan, if somebody gave me a shit-ton of money (any takers?) I don't know WHAT I would do but I sure would be unbelievably grateful!
I'm also really glad they kept the pimp scene in from the comic!
