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 - very strong language.
  • A guy and a girl have sex on a garbage can. Nothing is shown.
  • A teen boy aroused by imagining his teacher playing with her boobs.
  • 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.
  • 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 kickass 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 5-10 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 the Hit-Girl stabbing a few armed men.
  • Kick-Ass is fighting with Red Mist at a karate training room with fighting sticks. There's a bit of blood in this scene.


  • An 11 year old girl has a potty mouth, at one point she calls people "cunts."
  • 115 uses of the "fuck", 35 uses of "shit", 4 uses of "pussy", 3 uses of "tits", 2 uses of "balls", 2 uses of "dick". 11 uses of hell, over a dozen uses of ass, some uses of god damnit, some uses of bitch.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

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

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Sensitive people may not like the violence despite most of it being comical.
  • The fights can be extremely intense to some.
