Sex & Nudity

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). A woman wears a low-cut top that reveals cleavage. We see a giant billboard featuring a woman wearing flesh-toned lingerie that reveals cleavage, bare abdomen and bare legs. We see a poster of a scantily clad woman that reveals cleavage, bare thighs and hip. A teen boy is shown bare-chested.

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 tells another teen boy that there is a rumor going around that he is gay. . A teen boy talks about being invisible to girls. A teen girl talks about a person dressed as a super hero having a good body. A teen girl says "Hi gorgeous" and a teen boy mistakenly thinks she is talking to him. A man talks about a woman sitting on his lap while both are totally nude, and makes a crude sexual remark.

In a voiceover, a teen boy talks about how he masturbates to the slightest nudity. On two brief and quick occasions, we see folded tissues being tossed into a garbage can implying masturbation.

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 15-20 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.

Violence & Gore

10/10

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.

Profanity

10/10 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.



2 uses "Jesus" "Oh God" and 1 use each of "For Christ's sakes" and "My God."

A thug smokes what looks like a joint.

One of Frank's men is accused of selling coke to some Russians and then taking the money.

Damon explains to Mindy that his training of her will prepare her for dealing with any potential "junkie asshole."

Seeing some thugs trying to steal a car, Dave tries to intervene in superhero mode. One of the thugs responds, "This motherfucker is obviously high."

We hear that Katie volunteers at a needle exchange program.

We see many people doing drugs (pot, etc.) in an apartment where liquor is also present.

Chris smokes a joint while driving, saying that weed takes the edge off. He offers that to Dave who declines.

8/10

Scenes listed under "Violence" and Gore" may be unsettling and/or suspenseful to younger viewers and/or those with low tolerance levels for such material, but the fact that most of this is played to varying degrees of black comedy greatly lessens the realism of most of it.

For those with vertigo or related height issues, we see an overhead, aerial view looking straight down from atop a tall building.

One of Frank's men is accused of selling coke to some Russians and then taking the money. He claims he's innocent, but no one believes him, and another goon holds a bolt cutter around one of his fingers. We then hear that snip and scream, but don't see the actual cut.

A goon who's in trouble with Frank's team is placed inside a large, walk-in, industrial microwave. That's then turned on, the man starts to react, and we then see a tremendous amount of blood and gore splatter onto the window.

We see a man in a car that's positioned in a car crusher being controlled by Damon and Mindy. She then activates it and the device slowly starts to crush the car and the man (we see a brief burst of blood onto the windows during this).

Seeing Kick-Ass walking down the street, Frank has his driver follow him into an alley. Frank then gets out, kicks Kick-Ass to the street and then punches and kicks him quite hard. When a bystander passes by, Frank shoots that man in the back twice, and then shoots Kick-Ass in the head (we later learn this was an impersonator).

Dave and Chris arrive at Frank's lumber factory that's now fully ablaze. Chris and then Dave rush in, with both running about the flames and smoke, looking for anyone to rescue. They find a few dead men, while Dave is blown backwards by a fiery explosion when he opens a door. Chris then gets Dave out of there.

Frank's masked goons broadcast the torture and intended murder of Damon and Dave (who are shackled to chairs). They start with brass knuckles, hitting both hard, followed by batons and then a baseball bat to do the same (including hitting Dave in the crotch with the latter). The goons then hit the two simultaneously with all of the above, with increasing amounts of blood, including from Dave's mouth. They then pour kerosene around them, and eventually set Damon on fire.

Overall: 41/50
