When an incident is recorded and quickly becomes an Internet sensation, a star is born.
A couple of other super hero types join in and pump up the violence, going after a major crime boss and his entire operation.
There's been concern that it's too much for a young girl, but I say Jodie Foster and Brooke Shields came out just fine with tougher material. However, I do get the "creepiness" factor, but I laughed at the absurdity of that, too.
As a whole, this movie made me laugh out loud several times. And here's a great barometer for you. If the first minute bothers you, get up and leave. If you laugh or giggle, stay.
"Kick-Ass" does take a dark turn I didn't expect. So it's not all funny.
It also felt a little long. When I'm editing out scenes as I watch them, I know I'm starting to get restless.
Overall, it's funny, edgy and you might feel guilty laughing at some of it. I know I did.
