That movie was...not what I was expecting. I know it's been a while since it was out in theaters, but people who've seen it, too, let me know if you were surprised at all when it came to the actual content of the movie compared to the ads you saw for it when it was out.
The thing is, it's not like I read all the synopses of movies when they come out, or what have you. Or reviews, or anything like that. I tend to watch a movie based on the ads for it, and the actors in it, and the storyline involved.
But I was so. dead. wrong. about what Kick Ass entailed! I thought it was supposed to be a kids' movie, to be honest! I really thought it was just a goofy Disneyfied kids-as-superheroes kind of flick that would be fun for a Sunday night.
And then there was blood. And gore. And mobsters. And a LOT of the word "motherfucker". ::shocked face::
Don't get me wrong! This was a pleasant surprise for me, overall. Cussing doesn't offend me! And the mobsters made sense in the context of the film, and were kind of a surprising element, really, so that was nice.
But, I could just see parents allowing their 12 year olds to go and see this film when it was out in theaters, and renting it now for fun because it's what they do on a Friday night, and just being completely sideswiped with the violence and sex and the 11 year old running around calling people cunts. Just sayin'.
Am I the only one that had this surprised reaction to this movie? Because between this, and the whole "Democrats are voting, too?" thing last week, I'm starting to feel a little body-snatched. Maybe I have a virus eating away at my brain...
By the way, LOVED the movie. It was fun, and entertaining, and kept me on the edge of my seat at times. I'd recommend it...for people over the age of 15, or so, anyway. Depending on the kid, of course. ;)
