Adapted from Mark Millar's hyper-violent comic book of the same name, director Matthew Vaughn's (Layer Cake) vigilante superhero film tells the tale of an average New York teenager who decides to don a costume and fight crime. Comic book geek Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson) may not have good coordination or special powers, but that doesn't mean he isn't a fully capable crime fighter. After purchasing a flashy wet suit on the Internet, Dave starts busting up baddies with nothing but brute force. He calls himself Kick-Ass, and he can take a beating as good as he can dish one out. Before long, Kick-Ass has become a local sensation, and others are following his lead. Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage) and Hit-Girl (Chloe Moretz) are a father-daughter crime-fighting duo who have set their sights on local mob heavy Frank D'Amico (Mark Strong). They're doing a decent job of dismantling Frank's sizable underworld empire when Kick-Ass gets drawn into the fray. But Frank's men play rough, and his son, Chris (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), is about to become Kick-Ass' very first arch nemesis. When Chris assumes the persona of Red Mist, the stage is set for a superhero showdown that could spell the end of Kick-Ass once and for all.~Jason Buchanan

If you enjoy all types of movies, then there is no reason not to love Kick-*ss. It has drama,comedy, action, great story. I may just be an action buff, but i'm calling it the best movie of the year right now. Hands down! There has been nothing else this year that has come close. This movie came out in April and I have been anticipating the release on dvd and blu ray. Probably a better deal to get the blu ray if you have a ps3, blu ray player, or are going to get one in the future when technology changes again. It's only five dollars more than the dvd and it's a combo pack with the blu ray, and dvd, and digital copy for your ipod.
Alright, for people like me, who seen the trailer a while ago and thought about seeing it, but was iffy on it. Not knowing what type of movie it would be. If it were Action, Comedy, etc. Let me repeat myself when I say it is all of the above and surpassed any expectations I may have had for this film. I went into the theater thinking it would be just another comedy like role models, step brothers, etc. It was. Just a little bit more graphic. A little more to the point of reality. Of what WILL happen if you go up to people with a costume on. You'll get stabbed, and you'll be wowed by the intensity of it. Luckily for Kick-*ss, he has Hit Girl and Big Daddy to back him up so he doesn't get himself killed. But I love the message he sends.
Finally, lets move onto the two who made the film awesome. Chloe Moretz...Hit Girl and Nicolas Cage...Big Daddy. The two were a riot! Nicolas Cage plays a father who deemed revenge for a crooked cop who set him up and got him in jail to begin with. The same crooked cop who is the father of Red Mist. We'll let you figure out where it goes from there. Chloe Moretz was trained before making the film and is awesome. Uses balisong/butterfly knives, cusses like a truck driver...well, close lol, and on top of that is 11 yrs old (maybe 13 in real life.) She's quite the show stopper and I can't wait for the sequel. But since I have to, i'll just watch this one over and over and over again.
I would recommend this to a friend
Rating 4 out of 5 stars with 1 review
4K HDR w/Dolby Vision fun!!
It’s look great in 4K. Good transfer, Dolby Atmos.
I had this movie on DVD and wasn't really looking to upgrade but this SteelBook design caught my eye and I couldn't pass it up. One of the better SteelBook covers with incredible artwork printed directly on the metal and the text/titles printed on a clear slip case. Looks really slick! The bonus was was getting a pristine and beautiful 4K UHD transfer that kicks the *** of my previous copy. Detail and colors jump right off the screen! Very recommended!
This is a great film from director Matthew Vaughn who is very talented at directing action/comedy films as shown by his work on Kingsman and X-Men: First Class. The story is unique and grounded yet very fun and entertaining, the characters are likeable, the action is fun, and overall it is a very good time. This is a unique film that made good use of its tone and style and should be commended for sticking to the R-rating as it came out before Deadpool. Anyways, the 4K transfer is great, the audio is good, and the steelbook is nicely designed. I also love that it came in a clear, plastic slipcover. More steelbooks should include these.
I have to start off by saying that I've never read the comic book from which 'Kick-A**' is based, but I imagine the film gets the tone of it right. That seems to be the most important thing about this film. It has huge elements of both action, comedy and drama. Neither of these are small elements of an otherwise dominate comedic, action or drama film. So, in order to mix all of these with a good balance and having to keep a consistent tone I'd also say it is the most impressive thing about this film. it does escalate from comedy to action comedy to action drama with bits of humor, but it knows what it wants and it goes for it with no regard as to who will be offended.
This collector's edition is fantastic. The steeelbook contains front and back character artwork, a sturdy plastic slipcover containing the movie title logo, and interior cityscape artwork. Character cards were included inside; purchased during product's initial release.
This has to be one of my all-time favorite Bestbuy exclusive cases. Next to their unique pop art line: which I own the Resident Evil Collection kick a$s steelbook this compared to that they both look amazing. Impressive 4K release with the standard Bluray I use with my PS4 pro for a roaring grand time.
Only critique is nicer artwork on the discs designs would have been appreciated.
