KICK ASS 2 has been greenlit? Mark Millar says so...

Published at: Aug. 31, 2010, 1:07 p.m. CST by headgeek

Hey folks, Harry here and I've just started to receive a flood of messages from our UK viewers that heard Mark Millar on Radio 5 announce that due to the crushing success of KICK ASS on DVD - that KICK ASS 2 has been greenlit. The first person to send this in was Dixie, I'll follow up and see what else I can find. Shame that Home Video audience didn't turn out in theaters, where the film was truly spectacular. Now if only they'd wake up and get their asses to SCOTT PILGRIM!

Hi Guys Been listening to Mark Millar on Radio 5 in the UK who says that because of the fantastic number of DVD sales of Kick Ass that Kick Ass 2 has been greenlit and will go ahead and be based on Millars follow up comic Just call me Dixie

    Scott Pilgrim Sucked

    by Crow3711

    But Kick-Ass really did fucking rock. But stop trying to convince me Scott Pilgrim was a real movie. Yes, Edgar Wrights fantastic visual flair and energy kept it afloat, and the characters and dialogue were mostly enjoyable, but the fights ruined the movie entirely. I felt more like I was watching a video game with a series of stupid, non-dramatic boss battles than when I saw 300. 7 fights, out of nowhere, in a row, against people with superpowers, where scott gets his ass kicked for 4 minutes before finding an hilariously stupid and contrived way of beating them which usually amounts to, in my opinion, cheating. Yes, yes I get the metaphorical reasons for them having superpowers and him overcoming his weaknesses and blahblahblah...doesn't make it a good movie, or dramatic, or interesting to watch some emo hipster douchebag turn into a hindu god and dance around with stupid fucking vampire bitches or something, made my head want to explode.

    But does it NEED a sequel?

    by davidwebb

    I'll wait for Millar to deliver the printed sequel before completely passing judgement, but it didn't seem to me that the film needed a sequel.<P> It wasn't perfect, but at least the characters all got some kind of resolution at the end. <P> Yes, there's Red Mist, but that's a story that doesn't necessarily need to be seen or told.

    One was enough

    by Star Hump

    but okay if you're going to do it then this time it should be no holds barred with the violence. Vaughn got cold feet with the first Kick Ass. Let's see if he's really willing to cross the line. Is he even directing this?

  • Aug. 31, 2010, 1:42 p.m. CST

    Of course, it did better on DVD

    by slappy magoo

    Most of its target audience was too young to see it in cinema. The sequel would probably be more profitable if it went DTV as opposed to wasting all that money on prints.

    by Darth_Kaos

    Mark Millar is a self indulgent, self promoting, overrated douche bag. One of thousands of examples of him talking out of his ass: remember, when he said that he and a "Top" director had pitched an idea for Superman, and was so sure he was a go, but WB totally told them to fuck off...that was classic. This guy says shit he wishes would happen......waiting for him to announce his first directing project. Kick ass was alright. It was nothing great.

    Kick Ass

    by 2LeggedFreak

    Probably got a fair bit of income over the controversy over Hit Girl.<P> <P> Take that away and the movie is as generic as they come...in fact it reeks strangely of Robocop 3 to me for some reason.<P> <P> Perhaps its the fact that comics writers can appear clever on paper but translate the idea to screen and they suddenly seem quite stupid when you ghave to put any depth to paper thin ideas (pun !!) <P> <P>Miller/Millar stick to the comics.

  • Aug. 31, 2010, 2:25 p.m. CST

    Before we get too excited!

    by phool2056

    Remember that Mark Millar likes to screw around and use his internet influence to try and rumor things into truth. At one point he started a rumor of an Orson Welles Batman project starring Gregory Peck, and later that he himself had been selected to do a Superman revamp. More power to him, but let's not jump up and down too much.

  • Aug. 31, 2010, 2:25 p.m. CST

    I really liked the movie

    by Teddy Artery

    and bought the DVD. My only disappointment was the ending line delivered by 'Red Mist'. Yes, what follows is a SPOILER!!!...First of all, his dad's organization has been gutted and he wouldn't have access to what he had access to. Second, the son is basically normal. One does not turn into a raging killing machine overnight. The kid should not be part of a sequel. Something else needs to be the motivating force. Also, Kick-Ass himself would likely be suffering PTSD. It's the least believable part of the script (aside from the flying, gunned rig).

  • Aug. 31, 2010, 2:26 p.m. CST

    I didnt really rate the first one, sue me

    by shiekybaby

    I thought Hit Girl was a cool character and had alot of depth and was believable...but i didnt care about anyone else, and the plot wasnt really that strong. fun movie, but it wasnt the superhype awesomeness that this and some other sites have made it out to be.

    by Crow3711

    But to know that you aren't stuck out in texas with nothing else to do, but instead someone who has plenty of money and retired early, but has so little of a life that he still comes on aintitcool, badass that he is, to brag to nerds about how awesome it is. I mean, I didn't think it would get more pathetic than being border patrol and spending all day on here talking shit. But to be retired early and have enough money to actually do something, and yet chooses to stay on here all day talking shit....that's just life altering-ly sad. Go make some friends pal. Or are they as unimpressed by your bullshit about murdering innocent mexicans and hanging out with your butt buddy as i am? You are truly an underwhelming lump

    by Stalkeye

    Great Movie and very unapologetic.Too bad some of the So-called Geek Army had shuned this film thus overlooking it's potentual.The jury is still out on Scott Pilgrim and SPF's "planting" aint helping much either.

  • Aug. 31, 2010, 2:43 p.m. CST

    To be honest there's no need for a sequel

    by Stalkeye

    Eveything with the noted exception of Red Mist's new "look" wrapped up nicely. The ending is somewhat ambiguious, but there's not really much you can focus on afterwards. The nerd-gets-girl subplot is one of the best albeit cliche parts for this kind of film.And without Nic's excellent performance as Big Daddy, it's not really the same.Let's just see what Nemesis can do, shall we?

    Will they actually write original music this time?

    by metalfalcon

    Using the music from 28 Days Later and Sunshine struck me as really really lazy. The fact that those pieces of music were used in the scenes that were supposed to be the most dramatic in Kickass made it all the worse and completely took me out of it. The whole thing left me with a hack-ish vibe...

    Crow your mini Pilgrim review sucked!

    by andrew coleman

    Can't take someone seriously who says they didn't like Pilgrim because the fights were too much like a video game. You stupid shit that was the point. I hate saying this but you're obviously someone who just "didn't get it" or just one of these trolls who go after nerd movies. This self-hating nerd shit is getting old fast. It makes no sense to me when you guys send such hate for movies that are aimed towards us. Yet shitty movies either get ignored or many cases defended. Go fuck yourselves. Kick Ass had problems but it was way better than a lot of the other shit that came out. At least the movie had balls to have some violence in it. I've lost faith in the TBers here. Hating on Pilgrim and Kick Ass while many defend Takers... Fucking Takers? That movie had the bitchy Vader and Paul Walker and fucking TI in it and people were defending it. It was Heat for tweens! Pathetic.

    For those who don't understand it yet, here's how it works:

    by Chewtoy

    Millar wants a movie made out of his work. He goes online and makes announcements about the would-be movie project going forward (hinting a director is lined up, or that Eminem and Halle Berry are in talks to star, whatever.) People online talk about it. Millar goes to the desired studios/directors/stars, points to what he stirred up and says "Look at all the people talking about making this into a movie! Obviously, there's a huge demand!"<br><br>Millar isn't particularly believable to anyone who has been paying attention, but the man has definitely found a way to get his comics optioned.

  • Aug. 31, 2010, 3:35 p.m. CST

    Kick Ass 2 plot

    by CoachFinstock

    Millar has already come out and said that the plot would be that the city is now overrun with a superhero craze. Chris D'Amico (Red Mist) has a bunch of supervillains working for him while he just pretty much sits around and gets high. Millar also said that Hit-Girl is being written like Eastwood's character in UNFORGIVEN; she's been pretty much non-violent for the last few years but that changes. And of course Kick-Ass finds himself in the middle.

    Scott Pilgrim

    by CoachFinstock

    I understand the Scott Pilgrim love here and I recognize it was well-made by everyone involved. It just didn't connect with me at all, and there wasn't a single character I could identify with. It was GOOD, I just didn't care for it personally (it IS possible, you know). Kick-Ass I found to be one of the more exhilarating (and rewatchable) movies to come along in a while, and it's a freaking blast to watch it with someone who has no idea what to expect.

    Not sure why this film is considered a flop

    by ldm882

    It made almost $100 million total on a $30 million dollar budget. Even with marketing costs, I'm sure it was in the black before going out of theaters. Since the DVD sales are obviously strong, it's not surprising there'll be a sequel.

    All we have for an hour around me is Cinemark theatres - who were having a war with Lionsgate when the movie came out. No one played the film, even though one of the goons was a graduate of the local high school. So I'm glad a nearby independent theatre ran KA back in June, just so I got the chance to see it on the big screen. I hope the sequel talk is legit!

    Watchmen > Kick Ass

    by CaptainAxis

    Kick Ass was entertaining, but ultimately disappointing and soulless. It was the same old superhero story, right down to the lack of psychological impact the violence had on the characters. After everything that happened, Kick Ass and Hit Girl should have been mentally scarred for life. Especially HG, since her dad was a fucking batshit-crazy psychopath who raised her to be a remorseless murderer. Instead, we get the Happy Ending with a cutesy gag about HG beating up high school bullies.<br> <br> Watchmen obviously had superior source material, but it was also a far better film with a much more appropriate soundtrack. Let the debate begin!

    kick was based on a gimmick...

    by emeraldboy

    and that gimmick was hit-girl. once you saw the trailer, you saw the gimmick. Kick ass was a preening asshole and there was nothing remotley entertaining seeing a character get shot and then kicked and punched repeatedly by the movies main villain. seeing another character die of a hemmorage in the opening moments of the movie were made all the worse by the screenwriters attempts to funny that scene. there were some funny scenes in Kick Ass. the boozuka scene near the end, was funny alright. I liked mintz plasse in the film and that scene where he and kick ass are smoking dope is kinda funny. But the movie on the whole was horrible. there was nothing remotely Nice about any of the characters. but this was a mark millar comic.

    Does the theater experience really matter anymore?

    by MrEkoLetMeLive

    I saw Kick-Ass in theaters. Missed Scott Pilgrim. But what exactly can the movie theater experience give me that my gigantic HD TV and DTS surround sound system can't, except for the annoying chatter of people who DON'T SHUT UP!? Maybe if moviegoing was a bit more civilized like it is at places like the Arclight and the Alamo, people would still, you know, go to movies.

  • Aug. 31, 2010, 4:55 p.m. CST

    I'm not sexist, but...

    by CaptainAxis

    Part of me wonders what kind of film Kick Ass would have been without Jane Goldman writing the script. From what I've read about the comic, she really softened it up for the movie.

  • Aug. 31, 2010, 4:56 p.m. CST

    I think it does, Mr. Eko

    by theBigE

    Got to catch both films in the theatre. First of all, I saw KA at renowned movie palace that I would guess is similar to places like the Alamo and the Arclight. The full presentation, with an announcer coming out and introducing the film, curtains opening, very big screen - heck, they even played hero themed songs on the PA while the theatre filled (think Holding Out for a Hero, 3 doors down's Superman, etc...). So presentation and an appreciative audience is key. Scott Pilgrim - well, my wife and I were one of two couples total in the 100 seat theatre last week to watch that, but again - big screen, great sound, seeing it while it's still relevant (before video) makes a larger impression. Just my two cents.

    I do get it. I love video games. Play them when I have time. I understood all the references and jokes. I "get it". That doesn't make it a good movie. Movies and video games are different mediums. That movie was a piece of shit because it was too much like a video game, and thought it was oh-so-clever for doing so. I can see how it would work and be lots of fun as a graphic novel. But movies require drama and tension and actual danger. Scott Pilgrim had none of these. "Oh look here comes the vegan police to destroy the Super Saiyon guy for no reason. Oh he ate a steak three years ago? Thats dramatic. I was really worried scott pilgrim wouldnt survive that fight." gimme a break. thats just fucking terrible. it makes for a terrible movie. deal with it.

    Captain Axis, Watchmen sucked camel balls

    by HarryKnowlesNonExistentInceptionReview

    Alan Moore was right... it was meant for the comics medium and should have stayed there. What you ended up with was sort of a playlist of the best scenes from Watchmen, but done in live action with horribly bad CGI. And the soundtrack was just silly when combined with the images. Case in point: "The weirdest Leonard Cohen video ever." Kick Ass was basically kind of meh (to borrow an infamous Harry phrase) I wanted to like it, but it just kind of sat there. Did think the way the cinematographer merrily satirized the look of Spider-Man was nicely done, however.

    I liked Kick-Ass...

    by Darth_Von_Stroheim

    in spite of the fact that Mark Millar is a shallow, juvenile, ridiculously overrated comic book writer who tries way too hard to be dark and edgy and is utterly incapable of writing sympathetic characters; I hated the protagonist of Wanted (both film and comic book versions) and I found myself laughing at Kick-Ass more than I ever found myself rooting for him or identifying with him (yes I'm aware that the tone of Kick-Ass is satirical, but that shouldn't necessarily mean that the titular character needs to be a whiny assclown). Comic book scribes like Warren Ellis, Grant Morrison, and Peter David all possess a helluva lot more talent than Millar and don't seem to get nearly as much exposure as that little wanker. Having said all that I hope Kick-Ass 2 is as entertaining as the first, although I have a feeling Kick-Ass might not be so great on repeat viewings. I still haven't tested that theory. BurnHollywood: I totally agree with you about the rocket pack. It was stupid looking.

  • Aug. 31, 2010, 7:54 p.m. CST

    The comic book is more "real" than the movie.

    by Prof. Pop-Cult

    In fact, the movie plays out like a typical Hollywood dramatized make-over of a "based on a true story" premise, where several things are embellished. In the comic book's universe, if Hollywood turned Kick Ass' into a movie, it would be exactly the same movie in "our" universe. (Those who have read the comic book series probably understand better what I'm trying to describe here.)<p><p>For example, in the comic book, Dave doesn't get the girl. She freaks out when she learns that he played gay to get close to her. She hooks up with a thug who records them having sex and forwards it to Dave to mock him.<p><p>As for Big Daddy: he wasn't some super cop. He turned out to be just a loser who financed his and his daughter's superheroism by selling his valuable comic book collection. He had kidnapped his daughter from his ex-wife.<p><p>And there was no rocket pack.<p><p>But other than for the above, Kick Ass, Hit Girl and Red Mist are the same.

    by MrEkoLetMeLive

    I was really excited to see the elevator scene where Hit Girl snorts cocaine, claims it's an experimental drug her dad gave her, and then that moment when the elevator doors open and she torches the army of thugs waiting for her and Kick-Ass with a flame thrower. Instead we got that lame jet pack ending. It was like Vaughn and Millar didn't trust their own source material enough to just go with it right to the very end. The other changes from the comic were fine, but that jet pack bullshit was so not needed, and more importantly NOT cooler than what was in the comic.

    when you beat on Kick-Ass. Really? The more I watch this film, the more I'm convinced they nailed it right to the wall when it comes to a movie that is going to be revered years from now. This is the same type of movie like the original Karate Kid, Austin Powers.. or TRON. All disparaged on release and over time built-up a fanbase as the old folks That Didn't Get It(tm)casually or very quickly in the case of Powers faded away. They would be stupid to have not greenlit a sequel given it made its money back and then some at the box office, the leads are quite a bit more established now, and they're raking in money and exposure via the impressive sales of the DVD.

    The "Haters" Template

    by FracturedLojak

    <Film you hated> sucked... But <Film you loved> really did fucking rock. But stop trying to convince me <Film you hated> was a real movie. Yes, <Hated film's Director>'s fantastic visual flair and energy kept it afloat, and the characters and dialogue were mostly enjoyable, but the fights ruined the movie entirely. I felt more like I was watching a video game with a series of stupid, non-dramatic boss battles than when I saw Mortal Kombat. 7 fights, out of nowhere, in a row, against people with superpowers, where <Film you hated> gets his ass kicked for 4 minutes before finding an hilariously stupid and contrived way of beating them which usually amounts to, in my opinion, cheating. Yes, yes I get the metaphorical reasons for them having superpowers and him overcoming his weaknesses and blahblahblah...doesn't make it a good movie, or dramatic, or interesting to watch.

    by stankratz

    Scott Pilgrim Vs The World is utter shite. Went to see it last night, I had to spin the 'sure we may as well wait til the end' line to my date cause I really don't believe in walking out during a film, especially with the current price of cinema tickets in Ireland. She wanted to leave after 40 minutes, and I knew I went to see a film I'd no interest in seeing within the 1st half hour. The gimmicky visuals were cool, it was more the boring repetition of the fight scenes and swiss-cheese plot that fucked it up for me. I went to see it as I did INCEPTION; without knowing much about the film before hand. Inception was good, Scott Pilgrim is horrendous. But hey all this is subjective and blatantly off-topic!<p> Kick Ass was decent as far as I remember, I was stoned out of my fucking brains watching it so the recollection is hazy. A sequel could be worthwhile if they leave out McLovin.

    This isn't happening because the original wasn't successful...

    by Mr. Profit

    Kick Ass cost 30 million to make. <p>Lionsgate paid 25 million to acquire it. <p>Total Production: 55 million. <p>Add Promotional Costs estimated at 20-25 million = 70-75 million. <p>Worldwide Gross: Just under a hundred million. <p>Profit: 20-25 million? Not really. <p>The studio gets a large percentage of film gross from the 1st weekend. As the film stays in theaters, the percentage the studio splits with exhibitors starts to flip flop in favor of the exhibitors. <p>So with such meager 20-25 million dollar profit on a pretty substantial investment, the amount made by Lionsgate can't really be determined. If the film were 30 million All In, then yes it is a hit. But now calling it a hit, even with DVD sales is being generous. <p>Don't count on a sequel. <p>Especially when Lionsgate faulted the money spent on Kick-Ass as the reason their 1st Quarter earnings were bad. <p>If a sequel does happen, expect Vaughn or whoever makes it to spend their own money. But to find a distributor willing to release a sequel to a film no one ran out to see is going to be pretty difficult...

    by James_Camera_On

    There only way it could be considered a hit was because the makers did a superb job of keeping the costs under control and there is nothing wrong with that. Had it cost as much as Scott Pilgram, it would have been just one more fanboy bomb. The fact of the matter is that the audience didn't get it - the general public does not get superhero movies unless the "superhero" has been around for decades. In other words, the marketing has already been done to death. As for prospects for a sequel, let's just say I'll believe it when I see it. I would like to see a sequel, sure, but it's not a high priority in my life.

    But...I would venture to guess that this film only plays to white geeks, and only certain white geeks at that. It's not a film with universal appeal. Kind of like how Tyler Perry films are not going to resonate with white audiences, as successful as they are. Kick Ass is basically a victim fantasy. It plays to white geeks who have been bullied or victimized (a good proportion of geeks)...and with the inclusion of Hit Girl...it plays to both male and female white geek victims. <p> I just can't see a lot of black people going to watch Kick Ass together. This is the type of film that makes you realize, geeks at this site are predominantly white. It's like if you were a white guy who frequented a website for black geeks, and all of a sudden everyone praises to the heavens the latest Tyler Perry film. I'm not black, but this is just how I see it.

    Jehovahs_Witness - regarding Blacks and movies

    by Freds_Balls_in_a_Mason_Jar

    Fred thinks that is an over simplification on your part. Many, many Blacks enjoy entertainment that on the surface would seem geared solely towards white audiences. Look no further than Avatar, or the Punisher War Zone, or any Clint Eastwood movie from the 70's. Star Wars, Raiders etc. The list goes on and on. Some of those movies had no black characters at all. Some had blacks shown in a negative light. You do not need to identify with the color of the antagonist or protagonist in order to enjoy a movie. <p> Fred thinks where the problem comes in, is when movies only depict a stereotype, which is usually negative - of any race, and do not show a positive aspect. Fred thinks that is why such a hue and cry was made over Transformers 2 and it's depiction of the twins, without showing any truly positive Black portrayal other than another black actor screaming about his butt cheek!

  • Sept. 1, 2010, 11:41 a.m. CST

    Fred, valid point, but.....

    by Jehovahs_Witness

    ....I don't believe a film has to have black characters, or characters representing every minority out there, to be universal. I'm not saying that at all. All the films you mentioned had universal themes. However, there are many that don't. Another one that immediately comes to mind is Juno. One of the things I heard constantly when people were praising that film was that they know people who talk just like Juno...either they were parents who have kids like that, or people who have friends like that. <p> I don't know people like Juno personally, but when I encounter them, I find them just as irritating and annoying as she was. <p> Now when you take a film that doesn't have universal appeal, like a film that caters to white geek victim fantasies, and add negative racial stereotypes on top of that....it makes the film even harder to swallow. <p> But again, a film doesn't have to be multicultural to be universal. Jaws is one of the most universal films out there.

    by yourSTEPDADDY

    i can honestly say i dont know any other black geeks. and if they were geeks, i wouldnt associate with them because im sorta "cool". meaning, i have other interests besides being a geek (girls, partying, etc) whereas they probably are just into geek things. i have many frends who are of the n-word variety (there is a distinct difference between blacks and n-words (btw im only sayin n-word because i dont wanna give some of you guys leeway to use it in this tb)) and they usually enjoy all kinds of movies. no one i know (besides dumb girls with father issues) likes Tyler Perry movies also. and regarding the twins, no person i know who is a minority had no problem with them. they were funny satirical characters. no racism there (unless youre racist and saw your inner racism portrayed in the film).

    Jehovahs_Witness

    by Freds_Balls_in_a_Mason_Jar

    Fred did not think Kick A$$ was representative of white geek victimization, however Fred does understand if some had that impression.<p> However, if you choose to follow that line of reasoning, then you would have to include Spider-man and all of the original XMen as representative of white geek victimization, as well. The main character in Kick A$$ was mostly 'victimized' by his own race though. When he then chose to confront criminals before *spoiler alert* hee hee - he no longer felt any pain sensation and Fred must ask the question was it just pain he no longer felt or any sensation because if it was any sensation, then Fred feels very sorry for him, but admires he faking skills when it comes to doing, uh, you know with his GF! <p> Forgive Fred for straying, now back to the point about the criminal confrontation - yes Kick A$$ did fight Blacks at the drug house, but he also fought Whites and probably some mixed race too! <p> As long as portrayals are accurate and not stereotypical, then most people can enjoy seeing it.<p> Fred does not know if Kick A$$ did not appeal to minorities, but Fred suspects that race had little to do with the overall appeal of the movie simply because of its poor showing across all races. If people did not want to see a little girl beating up grown men - and apparently they did not at the theater, then Fred does not think that any racial component of villains of protagonists would have mattered.

    ...while KickAss did have both white and black villains and bullies, 100% of the black actors in the film were either villains or bullies, from the henchmen, to black kids in the cafeteria throwing their basketball into their lunch. You had white villains, but you also had white teachers, white love interests, and most importantly, white protagonists. <p> It's interesting that you bring up Spiderman. You're kind of right in the sense that Peter Parker is sort of a white geek victim. But race tended not to factor into the films, and Peter Parker has somewhat more universal appeal thank KickAss. <p> HOWEVER, I would say Spiderman is less universal than other superheroes, like Batman, for example.

    ....well, I don't want to be Batman, but I still love the latest Batman films, and some of the older ones. So maybe it's the geek in you connecting to KickAss more than anything else. You can dislike comic books and still like the Batman films. Anyhow, thanks for giving me the half-black perspective, you're the token half-black guy at AICN. <p> Kidding.....

    by Freds_Balls_in_a_Mason_Jar

    Fred strongly agrees that when a movie only has a negative -or at best a weak portrayal of a race, then it is doing a disservice to all. But where Fred is unsure is how that would apply to a movie such as Kick A$$. Without a doubt it was aimed at male white teen audiences - as are a great many movies. That in itself should not lessen its appeal to audiences of other races if the movie is enjoyable and not offensive to the other races. Fred can not say if the movie offended Blacks because of its negative portrayals though. Fred actually suspects Blacks (like most everyone else who stayed away from it)were more indifferent to it than anything else simply because of the content, not because of the portrayals. <p>Fred is intrigued by your statement about Batman being more universal than Spiderman. Fred always thought that more people could identify with a teen (even a super powered one) that has 'normal' anxieties - for a comic book super hero that is, as opposed to a wealthy vigilante who seemingly has no cares at all.

  • Sept. 1, 2010, 2:15 p.m. CST

    Yeah, Fred....

    by Jehovahs_Witness

    ...I don't think the issue with KickAss was that non-whites (like blacks) were offended, but I think most of them (the non-geeks, anyways) just saw no appeal in the film. As for the question of Spiderman having more mass appeal than Batman, I think people from all walks of like can say to themselves, they would like to be wealthy, have lots of cool gadgets, vehicles, and butler, and fight crime on their days off. But not everyone wants to be a scrawny white teenager with no money and no college education who feels sorry for himself because he can't get laid. No one wants to be THAT guy. And even though he gets the girl in the end, he starts from a place that not everyone can relate to. And like in Spiderman 3, once he gets what he wants, he kind of becomes a douche.

    But I have to ask why you said what you said in the enslaved sailors talkback. That's morally wrong, to call the slaves the bad guys.

    i called the americans the bad guys (well actually i asked if they were) since in my belief, 99% of americans are bad guys up until 1960

    Just read the Kick Ass graphic novel...

    by NeverTalksBack

    And while I still really enjoyed the movie, I gotta say they really sugar coated the shit of the movie story. Especially the Big Daddy & Hit Girl part of the story. The book is SOOOOO much more fucked up and of course waaay better. I guess that's just always the way with comic/book movie adaptions. <p> <p> One thing that really pissed me off about the comic though, SPOILER ALERT, Kick Ass wants to be a vigilante, fight crime, an help people right? First people he decides to fuck with are some people doing graffiti, fuckin really?! That's how you're going to change the world and fight for what's right, stopping some guy spraying graffiti on an abandoned looking building? Thought that was really stupid. Loved the rest of the story though
