Too bad many Bendites will only see Ebert's damning review of Kick-Ass.
It's getting great reviews overall. And among the nerd core of Rotten Tomatoes, it's getting a 90% rating. So Ebert thought it overly violent; but hey, fair warning, it's an R-rated movie. Think Tarantino...with a nine-year old girl.
I'm still trying to figure out my feelings for this over the top stuff-- much like my reaction to Spartacus, part of me winces, part of me quails, part of me chuckles. And part of me say, "Hell, yeah. Kick Ass!"
Moral failings, I suppose.
Or....I prefer to think that I'm able to separate fiction from real life.
