Does what it says on the tin
Having not read the comics I was expecting the usual teen hero flick, so wow did I get a surprise when Hit Girl made her slice'n'dice entry. The slow but steady slide from the awkward humour of a teenage misfit becoming Kick-Ass through to its ultra-violent climax is done with such style. Hit Girl is the star of the movie - I never thought I'd marvel at a pre-teen kid so adept at killing, on paper it's in such bad taste but on screen it works so well. With a great soundtrack and looking awesome on Blu-ray Kick-Ass is worth every one of its five stars.
