The "bazooka" in the film is based on the U.S. Marine Corps' SMAW (Shoulder-Launched, Multipurpose Assault Weapon), which fires an 83mm rocket. See more »
In the hallway, Hit Girl dramatically reloads both pistols in slow motion. She takes three shots total before the pistols run out of ammo. Then she throws the guns away and takes one from the next criminal. Hit Girl loaded the magazines herself earlier in the film; she may have ran out of bullets. See more »
I always wondered why nobody did it before me. I mean, all those comic books, movies, TV shows. You think that one eccentric loner would've made himself a costume. I mean, is everyday life really so exciting? Are schools and offices so thrilling that I'm the only one who fantasized about this? Come on, be honest with yourself. At some point in our lives we all wanna be a superhero.
That's not me,by the way. That's some Armenia guy with a history of mental health problems.

When I first saw Kick Ass i was expecting more action than comedy. However, I was wrong with how surprisingly funny the movie turned out to be. I thought Hit Girl was what made the movie shine as she was cussing and slaughtering people. Aaron Johnson did a good job playing the lead role of Kick Ass and I thought Nicolas Cage was good at playing Big Daddy as it wasn't the typical Cage film. This movie beats a lot of those stupid high school movies and chick flicks that are trying to be funny but fail. This is a great combination of bloody action and comedy. Its the Super Bad meets Kill Bill genre. I highly recommend this film.
