Yesterday I went to see Kick-Ass with my mate, armed with our 2-4-1 orange Wednesdays code I was pretty darn excited to be seeing this movie that everyone had been talking about. 2 hours later the credits roll up and to be honest I was left pretty confused as to whether or not I liked the movie, it definitely was not what I was expecting it had much more violence than I was prepared for (my friend whispered halfway through the movie “what rating is this, I swear it’s a 12, it definitely should be an 18” ha) ok so I didn’t think it was that bad, but the visuals definitely shocked me. The acting was great from Chloe Moretz; she has also done some brilliant acting in Amityville Horror and 500 days of summer. It always amazes me how these children remember their lines whilst giving an epic performance and in the case of Kick-Ass also put on an amazing American accent. The film has been deemed very controversial due to the nature of some of the scenes and also the explicit language used by 13yr old Chloe who was 11 when she filmed the movie. I can definitely understand how some people may feel this role was too mature for the little actress but she did amazingly despite whether it was correct she did the film or not.
All in all, the movie was good... not amazing, just a standard good movie, I’m glad I went to watch it but let’s just say I won’t be adding that to my 586 DVD collection. However a movie I am looking forward to immensely and I believe will most certainly live up to the original is Nightmare on Elm Street, you can’t beat a good old horror.
