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

Sex & Nudity

  • Some sex fantasy talk at the start about getting off with his teacher
  • A guy and a girl have sex on a garbage can. Nothing is shown and it is incredibly brief.
  • A teen boy aroused by imagining his teacher playing with her boobs (no nudity and the scene only lasts three seconds)
  • A teen boy lowers his pants, and tissue paper is dropped into a bin (nothing is shown).
  • A girl is wearing nothing but panties and covering her boobs with her hands, for a boy (who pretends to be gay but really isn't), to apply "self tan" on her body.
  • Main character looks at nude African tribal women on his computer screen.
  • All sexual allusions in this film are very brief.
  • Quite a lot of sex references and jokes but not as raunchy as Deadpool
  • 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

  • There's a scene where Hit Girl saves Kick-Ass by killing many people in an apartment. This scene is very bloody and brutal.
  • There's a scene where a man is in a microwave and he blows up. Blood and guts go all over the screen but it's done in a comedic way.
  • There's a scene where man is in a car and gets crushed. There is blood shown on the windscreens.
  • There's a scene where Big Daddy is in a lumber supplier shop and kills around five to ten men by shooting and stabbing them. This scene shows a fair bit of blood.
  • A man tied into a chair is burned but it isn't seen.
  • 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 shooting a few 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.
  • 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 it is sometimes violent, it has a comedic effect by the violence being unreal.
  • The ending scene, where the two main heroes are fighting with the villains shows Hit-Girl stabbing a few armed men.


  • There is a hero named Kick Ass
  • 115 uses of "f*ck"
  • 1 very brief use of "c*nt" (said by an 11 year old, so mostly comedic)
  • Many uses of "sh*t", "ass", "b*tch", "c*ck" and "d*ck".
  • Less cursing than Deadpool but more uses of the f word than Deadpool

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Cocaine use by one character.
  • A teenage boy is shown smoking cannabis whilst driving a car

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • just like watchmen, it tackles the scenario of "what if superheroes were real?" but with a more fun and satirical approach
  • Sensitive people may not like the violence despite most of it being comical.
  • The fights can be extremely intense to some.


The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Sex & Nudity

  • Katy and Dave and Erica and Marty kiss at the end

Violence & Gore

  • Kick-Ass and Big Daddy get beaten in chairs with knuckle dusters and pipes. Big Daddy is slowly burned to death. He screams throughout the entire scene. This is extremely brutal and sad.
  • Kick-Ass is fighting with Red Mist at a karate training room with fighting sticks. There's a bit of blood in this scene.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The scene where Kick-Ass and Big Daddy are beaten on live television followed by one of them dying is very emotional.
