A teen boy that's wearing jockey shorts and is bare-chested applies lotion to a teen girl's back (she is wearing only panties and her arms are crossed over her bare breasts); she think he's is gay, but he appears to be deriving sexual pleasure.

A teen boy looks at a photograph of topless African tribal women in a magazine (we see their bare breasts) and we see him suddenly grab a tissue (implying masturbation)

A man asks his teen son if the men who robbed and stabbed him also sexually assaulted him since when he was found he was nude (he states that he was not).

A teen boy is asked 'if he's gay?' by several students in one scene. One of the students shouts, 'Hey Dave, is it true you like sucking dick?'

A teen boy and girl are shown caressing, groping, and making out with each other in an alleyway while presumably having sex. This scene lasts about 5-10 seconds and no sounds are heard because there is a voiceover during this scene.

A teen boy and girl kiss while sitting on a bed then fall onto the bed as the scene cuts. Sex is implied.

A man tied into a chair is slowly engulfed in flames when a fire is lit under his chair.

A teen appears outside a high-rise apartment building hovering with a jetpack that has two Gatling guns attached; he opens fire while moving horizontally, breaking many windows and mowing down many men.

Several men chase another man, they catch him and they punch and kick him several times (his head and face is a little bloody); a teen boy joins the fight, kicking and punching and the attackers start punching and kicking him; one man draws a knife and threatens the teen but they are interrupted by the sound of sirens.

Many men are seen dead inside a flaming building. One has a slit throat with blood on it, others have bloody gunshot or knife wounds.

We briefly see the full body X-ray of a teen boy that shows many metal rod implants and screws used to repair numerous broken bones.

Whilst is is violent and bloody it has a comedic effect by the violence being unreal.

The ending scene ,where the two main heroes are fighting with the villains is very graphic ,especially when Hit-Girl slices some armed men with her sword.

Kick-Ass is fighting with Red Mist at a karate training room with fighting sticks ,there's a lot of blood in the scene ,very graphic. We see how Kick-Ass uses a bazooka to kill Frank ,very violent.

86 uses of fuck,62 uses of ass, 35 uses of shit, 13 uses of hell, 6 uses of damn,4 uses of pussy, 3 uses of tits, 2 uses of balls, 2 uses of cocksucker, 2 uses of dick, 2 uses of crap, 2 uses of douche, 2 uses of bitch, 1 use of cunt,1 use of cock.

Cocaine use by one of the bad guys.

A teenage boy is shown smoking cannabis whilst driving a car [DUI].

Sensitive people may not like the violence despite most of it being comical.

The scene where Kick-Ass and Big daddy are tortured and brutally beaten on live television followed by one of them being burnt alive and dying is very intense and emotional.

The fights can be extremely intense to some.

Do not put up scores or your own age rating, as that is opinion.

Rated R for strong brutal violence throughout, pervasive language, sexual content, nudity and some drug use - some involving children
