Kick-Ass actually KICKED ASS!
"Definitely eponymous!" - rmd
I got a pair of passes to see a sneak preview and dragged rmd with me. We were both hella impressed.
However, if you don't like blood and violence, you won't enjoy it.
(Especially the kind of violence where you squeeze someone so hard the blood just kinda POPS out.)
Anyway, it's got a rich and complex plot that hangs together really well. It didn't feel like there were multiple endings (unlike the last Batman movie), just multiple plot points being tied off. And I was surprised at how much I liked all the actors AND their characters. I was utterly immersed and utterly unaware of the time as I haven't been at a movie in a long damn while.
I have not yet read the comic, so I can't make a comparison about how faithful it was (or wasn't).
