In the original comic, Mark Strong's character is named "John Genovese". Genovese is one of the most powerful "Five Families" (Bonano, Colombo, Gambino, Genovese, and Luchese) of the mob, and to avoid any trouble with them, the name was changed to Frank D'Amico, at the same time doing a nod to The Simpsons (1989), because the mob boss of Springfield, Fat Tony, is called Anthony D'Amico.

At the end, a view from a Brooklyn rooftop shows the sun rising over Manhattan. The sun rises in the east, so it would never rise over Manhattan from that perspective. See more »
I always wondered why nobody did it before me. I mean, all those comic books, movies, TV shows. You think that one eccentric loner would've made himself a costume. I mean, is everyday life really so exciting? Are schools and offices so thrilling that I'm the only one who fantasized about this? Come on, be honest with yourself. At some point in our lives we all wanna be a superhero.
That's not me,by the way. That's some Armenia guy with a history of mental health problems.

You know that rare feeling... happens every year or so... when you pour out of the cinema SO excited at the film you've just watched, and every other word is "ohmygodilovedtwithbitwherethey"? Well 'Ding', Kick ass hits that sweet spot. Comprising teen comedy, kick-ass action (sorry) and a healthy dose of comic book style violence and gore, it rocks.
It's Superbad meets Kill Bill.
The film is a fairly faithful adaptation of the comic book, and where tweaks have been made, they make the plot more robust for the audience to empathise with.
Kick-ass is stylish, fun, daring, and the dark surprise of violence and gore kept the balance of comic teen angst fresh: a delicious perk me up when you were settling into comedy mode. There was never a dull moment in the pace of the film, never a flimsy plot point, and actually the audience guffawed their way through the film. Did I mention it has a cool soundtrack to boot? I've already got it on my Phone.
