It was a little slow at parts in the beginning but when the action sequences got going it was a fuckin blast. Hit Girl was the best. They did a redcarpet premiere here in chicago as part of C2E3 comi-con yesterday and afterwards during QnA one of the comic nerds asked the girl if she was single.....lol shes 13. But she did kick some major ass in the movie...no pun intended. And it was nice and bloody, just how I like my action movies.
I really did love this movie, best super hero movie since Spider Man, in my opinion! Its also surpisingly dark, like very dark at times and its soundtrack is basically perfect. But Nic Cage is awesome and Hit Girl kicks ass!
I love when people think somethings family friendly then they go see it and are appalled it wasnt. Maybe they dont understand that the letter "R" means its not. And if the "R" isnt enough, under it in the same box it says "Rated R for strong brutal violence throughout, pervasive language, sexual content, nudity and some drug use - some involving children." Come on people, its not that hard to figure out! lol
Great flick. Saw it a couple times in the theater, and picked up the DVD today and just finished watching it. Though it does take certain liberties with the comic ( most notably Dave and Katie's relationship) it's still a blazing good action flick, with tons of violence and humor. And while there's not a weak performance in the bunch, Chloe Moretz does indeed steal the show. I love her first fight scene, to the tune of the Banana Splits Tra La La.
