I finally settled down and checked out 2 movies that are comic book adaptions they are very different in style but both quite popular anyway let us get on with it.
The acting is Kick-Ass is good all around Hit Girl is a revelation and Big Daddy is pretty damn funny too as a whole the plot moves along nicely and I will admit that it probably is helped by the screenplay changes that have been made. If you had a rental voucher or a £10 to spend on a night in with some buddies then you could do more right than wrong by going with Kick-Ass as one of a double header that said for me it takes an awesome comic that hits hard and pulls no punches and changes it into a damn fairy tale.
The movie is pretty good, the pace keeps a geek like me interested not sure if it will work on the non-comic fan but by this point you should know what you are queuing for I mean you don't watch Passion of the Christ and expect no religion do you? Anyway my particular tip pay attention to the fight scenes they are very well produced for a US film, compare it to the choreography in Batman Begins and maybe the rest of you might notice how sucky the fight scenes in that over rated film are.
You Smallville fans will of course see the similarities to the Total Justice storyline (which just crawled its way onto UK screens this week) and that is what the original story is based on - The JSA itself I mean. Basically if you like comics sit down and watch this film, if you like a action film with a thriller twist sit your ass down and watch this film, if you have a pvc fetish... well you get the idea.
