I was really looking forward to seeing Kick-Ass when it was released. The trailers to it looked great, along with the horde of amazing reviews claiming "Kick-Ass was Kick Ass!!" I am not sure if I was let down because my expectations were so high, or just that I am tired of seeing all these geeky actors star in these movies. Its been the "in" thing to do lately it seems with Juno, Superbad, Zombieland, Adventureland, and Youth in Revolt. They all just start off like a geek in them all and as the movie progresses they get some balls somewhere along the line. So having the main character AND another super nerd (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) I think was a bit much for me. I will say this though, I thought Nicolas Cage did well for his part. Him and his daughter of the movie I thought worked well together and were pretty funny. Had a few good laughs here and there, but overall I definitely was disappointed with what I was hearing. In the end I would say the movie is worth a rental.
