Sex & Nudity

  • A teen boy looks at a photograph of topless African tribal women in a National Geographic type magazine magazine ( very brief )
  • Many strong verbal and visual sex references throughout.

Violence & Gore

  • 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 but not graphic.
