Review: As a super hero, Kick-Ass - who doesn't have any superpowers - is a bit different from the other entries to this genre. The film is funny in parts, extremely violent throughout, and the end result is quite entertaining. I can't speak for the adaptability of the comic book to film, since I never read the comic, but as a free standing, comic-book fantasy film 'Kick-Ass' delivers. Pure entertainments, but certainly not for the squeamish.
