I Liked Kick-Ass. A Lot.

Update: I seem to have totally forgotten to link to my longer post on the film. It’s here!

It’s not for everybody, but it’s delightfully crazy and violent and smarter than you might expect. If you didn’t like Mark Millar’s ultraviolent comic, there’s a good chance you won’t like the similarly ultraviolent movie. But if anything, Vaughn’s adaptation actually draws out the story’s weird, fascinating emotional textures better than the comic.
