I will never watch this film again, I have only seen it twice, once at
the cinema way back then, and once recently to check that it really was
THAT bad. The only reason I did not give this a score of 1/10 is that i
believe no film deserves that as it takes time and effort to make any
Ray Park was the best thing about this film, and when the best part only says 3 lines, its got to be bad. the special effects were brilliant for their time, but now are nothing special so don't add anything to the (bad) experience of watching it.
Anyone who gave this film more than a 4/10 is a fan-boy (or girl) of epic proportions. I would rather spend a day watching Twilight playing on loop for a day than watch this again. For the manual on how to ruin one of the greatest sagas on film, contact George Lucas. Disney cannot possibly any worse than this!

There is no denying that this film was the start of something big, and
you cannot take away from it the fact that it changed the face of the
sci-fi genre, maybe even the whole film industry, in to what it is
today. For its time, the effects, story, characters and detail in this
film are are beyond exemplary. Most action and sci-fi films aim to be
compared to star wars, a feat that is rare and, in my opinion, has only
been achieved by Terminator 1 and 2, the lord of the rings trilogy and
marvels: the avengers.
A new hope works brilliantly as a first chapter to a saga, however, I feel that it works better as a stand alone film. Unlike many films that are a 'first part', it has a beginning, middle and end, tells everything that needs to be told and leaves the characters in a satisfying place. I feel that having seen the prequels does not diminish anything about this film like it does to episodes five and six.
The only problem that I have is that the original theatrical release doesn't really exist anymore, you can only really get the version that has been tinkered with by Lucas to put needless CGI extras in. This is the original and best of the star wars saga, however i do feel that many people see this through rose tinted glasses and will not see any faults in any of the three original films, even though they are happy to say that the three prequels do not exist as far as they are concerned. Awesome film, great legacy, and now that Disney has the rights away from Lucas, a great future too.
The first Saints Row game that i played was the third one, and This one
takes a lot of material from its Predecessor. The city is the same so
if you learned where things were, you will have no problems with
navigation. The best thing about these games is the comedy found in
everything, from the names of places to the content of conversations
between characters. Some game take themselves far too seriously but
this is a refreshing break from that.
Some refer to these games as Grand Theft Auto's little sibling, but I think that it is different enough to stand alone as an adult game, without the comparisons by simply having the craziest storyline and missions in games. Another big bonus is the character design aspect that allows you to create you own character in the same way as Skyrim and other games. This makes it personal to you, rather than being given a set character that you have no attachment to at the start.
The only criticism I have of this game would probably be that there may be a little too much repetition on the collectible side of things. most games that I have played have 50-200 items to find. I was a bit daunted by the Amazing spider-man game having 700! but over 1200 here may get boring for the people like me, who play to 100% complete, by the end of the game.
All in all, a very entertaining game that deserves to be played! If you enjoy this game as much as I have then it will be money well spent!
I had heard a lot of bad things about this before i went in to see it,
but I loved the first film, so I was never not going to see this. All
the bad comments that i have heard have come from people who either
haven't seen the original or are over 50 years old with little to
connect them with the characters or the whole super hero genre.
I thought that this was a fantastically fun and imaginative story, with humor coming from both genre related in-jokes and gross out visual violence. Perfect casting in Jim Carrey and John Leguizamo. Chloe Grace Moretz Continues to shine as Hit Girl and steals the show in most scenes that she is in. Olga Kurkulina is genuinely and terrifyingly believable as Mother Russia.
This was the most fun I've had at the movies for a couple of years, and anyone who enjoyed the first film should love this. I really hope that Kick-ass 3 gets made as there are a lot of tantalizing bits that leave you wondering what may happen in a future sequel. My only criticism would be that I think it should have been rated 18 rather than 15 due to the very graphic violence and disturbing scenes.
All in all: A must see!
I am one of the people that like X-men origins: Wolverine, and i was
looking forward to this film a lot! I would like to say it lived up to
my expectations,but i'm not sure that it did. There are a few massive
plot holes but i don't worry about that too much when watching a movie
based on a comic book.
There are less memorable bits in this than origins, but the action sequences are big and bold and very well done. The touch of violence and humor goes well with the setting in Japan being serious and organised. The villains are a bit one dimensional but really, who cares? Its a Wolverine film and i would go and see a sequel without hesitation.
If you are not a fan of comic book movies or action films in general, then don't bother with this, but for an evenings enjoyment, its well worth it. Bring on 'days of future past', cant wait!

I was dreading this! A 'realistic' Superman? How is that possible?
that'll be nothing like the comics I love!? Well, i came out of the
cinema feeling pretty good about it! Firstly the criticisms. I wasn't
impressed that superman kills, thats against everything he is supposed
to be. Secondly The absence of the classic score that still rouses my
spirits whenever i hear it, was sorely missed. Lastly my minor quibble
that i don't think it would have been worse to have an older style
On to the good points! The opening of the movie on Krypton is Jaw dropping! Any sci-fi movie would have been proud of that 10 minutes of footage! Russel Crowe was great and it gave a good setting for the rest of the story. The fight sequences are very well made and utilize great special effects to make the super powers look very real.
To avid comic readers, there will be a lot of flaws to spot, but to Joe public, i think this will be a hugely enjoyable blockbuster. I just hope they lighten the mood (and costume) if they make a justice league film off the back of this. A solid 8/10 from me, just not as fun as Avengers Assemble.
As a massive fan of the Tekken fighting games, i am always wary of
getting other fighting games, but as a super hero fan, i simply had to
give this game a shot. What I ended up with was an enjoyable game with
simple enough controls to get to grips with, but there is scope to
learn to use the moves of each character to incredible effect.
The game has a story mode that is far superior to most fighting games, and the level of detail that has been put in to the S.T.A.R. labs missions makes the 1 player content last much longer while not seeming like too much of a grind. I was also glad that the studio didn't make superman and batman the instant pick that they may have been being the famous pair, the other characters are all very competitive for 2 player use.
If your favorite character is not one of the 24 playable ones, you can almost guarantee that they will have a cameo in the game somewhere, and with down-loadable content on the way, the games longevity will be increased.
I would recommend this game to any fan of fighting games and/or DC comics characters, and i hope that this becomes a franchise of games, not just a one off. Note to Disney: make a game like this for Marvel characters, there is lots of money to be made!
First of all, let me say that all of the people out there who write
reviews saying "just another stupid comic adaptation", Stop watching
these movies if you don't like the whole genre! About the movie. Great
comedy moments lighten the mood from time to time as the body count is
pretty high for a 12 rated movie. People who like the dark knight
trilogy because its 'dark' even though no one dies will find this
great. This film has it all, great special effects, action sequences,
comedy and concepts.
Its Main bonus that it has over the other two installments is that is not just another bad guy in a rip off suit. Those looking for another Avengers will be expecting too much, and may well be disappointed, but they need to save the team ups for Avengers 2!
My only fault in this movie was the lack of scenes with Rhodey in his suit, War Machinedeserves more screen time! In summary, not a 10/10 like Avengers, but a very worthy addition to the Marvel cinematic universe.
I played this game as a super hero fan-boy, knowing that it is aimed at
the younger gamers. I was surprised at how much fun i had! Silly story
lines and cartoon heroes make for a refreshing break from the super
serious Arkham city and the brilliantly gory wolverine tie-in game.
Some characters are much easier to use than others but all have parts to play and some good lines. You can almost guarantee that your favorite hero is in the game, being able to play as Hulk, Thor, Spiderman and many others! Although why the writers put reptil in rather than a more famous character like Hawkeye or even ms. marvel, i will never understand!
If you can get this game, have a bash and you will have some fun. Then go get Lego Batman 2 and have some more fun!

Quite possibly the most over hyped and overrated pile of junk in my
Batman Begins was a fine movie and apart from the frankly terrible scarecrow, was an enjoyable watch.
The Dark Knight was hailed as as masterpiece, I disagree. Heath Ledger was not a Joker. If it had been a villain called something else i would not have had a problem but this is so far away from the source material that it makes no sense for them to even refer to him as the joker. Jack Nicholson was better in every way. Two face was good but hardly used at all. On top of all of that the whole idea of making a film about a comic book 'realistic' is pointless, the whole idea of batman is unrealistic, just the way it should be.
To all those people who say 'this film is darker which makes it better' you are all forgetting what happens, the joker actually dies in the 1989 film, no one dies in this.
If you are a fan of classic batman, DO NOT watch this film, stick with the vastly superior Tim Burton film!
