100
A ridiculously entertaining, perfectly paced, ultra-violent cinematic rush that kicks the places other movies struggle to reach.
90
Variety
Equal parts audacious dark comedy, wish-fulfillment fantasy and over-the-top, tongue-in-cheek action-adventure.
88
The best superhero movie since "The Dark Knight" (and far less serious in tone or approach), Kick-Ass earns its name in every way.
80
Boxoffice Magazine
A clever movie premise based on an obscure comic book has been turned into, okay we’ll say it, a fanboy’s kick-ass wet dream of a movie that could be a surprise Spring smash.
80
Its balancing act between innocence and gore perfectly matches the expectations of genre fans, who should embrace the movie.
80
For those of us who find somber superhero movies faintly ridiculous, Kick-Ass is a one-film justice league.
80
It's also perfectly content to be an insanely violent, funny take on an established genre. And in that respect, Kick-Ass lives up to its name.
70
Kick-Ass is a compendium of all sleazy things, and it sings like a siren to our inner Tarantinos.
50
Village Voice
Never as shocking as it thinks it is, as funny as it should be, or as engaged in cultural critique as it could be, Kick-Ass is half-assed.
50
Orlando Sentinel
An awkward blend of ultra-realistic violence, boundaries-bending satire and low comedy.
