Kick Ass is Tarantino does Batman by way of Luc Beeson’s Leon, John Hughes, Sergio Leone and a touch of John Woo meets first person shooter. Perfect in execution for comic book aficionados, pure genre cinema for movie fans.
Yes it's that good. Fans of the comic book, written by Scotland's Mark Millar and illustrated by John Romita Jr would accept the changes made for the cinema and embrace the maintenance of the spirit of the comic book. Incidentally Mark Millar's most famous work was Wanted, the film of which badly let down the source material.

Those looking to enjoy a cinematic experience where suspension of disbelief and sharp contrasts in tone are part of the storytelling experience will be handsomely rewarded.
Exceptional warehouse takeover scene-
What could easily have been an example of style over content is a sharp, witty, funny, dramatic,quirky, heart warming, teen movie with an action mentality wrapped up in a superhero movie. Ironically it's almost like an old fashioned movie where an idea is taken and, in the right hands, is made into a piece of pure entertainment without prejudice.
A pleasure for comic book fans and a great two hours for film fans. What else do you want out of a mainstream Hollywood movie?
