This is based on the comic
This was an interesting bridge between some of the more popular comics, with references to Spiderman and Batman the most. I would NOT recommend this for anyone under the age of 16. The violence is very extreme (though so are most comics these days)
I have one question... in the movie why doesn't Kick-Ass ever wonder before the big final battle who Red-Mist is? Just given the car factor.
And every time we saw Kick-Ass in front of his mirror trying on parts of his costume, I could not get the thought out of my head that. that is what wrestlers must go through when they are trying out new gimmicks.
what do i think i learned from this film?
Everyone wants to be a superhero, it's part of who we are as a society. The only thing is very few have the courage or the know how to do so.
