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 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.
Great movie with plenty of action from start to finish. 4k with its enhanced audio and video qualities are very good. Steelbook is nice and a great way to store and display your favorite movies. Keep'em com'in BestBuy!!!
This is a very well done film. Sure it is a super hero genre film, but it is also very self aware and had a different take on it. No real superpowers here. Just interesting normal people going through their lives. Funny and sometimes shockingly violent. Looks and sounds great in 4K and a worthy upgrade.
Wanted to upgrade this film for a while, since I only have it on DVD.
The artwork on the case is incredible, and the movie is fantastic.
Definitely not your average Marvel movie. This is brutal, with real consequences. Some scenes are definitely not for the squeamish!
One of my biggest guilty pleasure movies finally gets a glorious steelbook release. I may be a little bias, but this has to be one of the most colorful, vibrant, eye-popping steels out there! Comes with a lovely plastic slip to protect the steel, and 4 collectible playing cards that really play into the everyday superhero theme of the movie. For lovers of action, comedy, and just the right amount of over-the-top violence, this is a must-have!
The steel book is beautiful. I really like it. This is one of my favorite movies, and it was great to buy it in 4k. If you are on the fence, get it. It's a cheap movie that is great and definitely rewatchable.
