Kick-Ass the comic was an very enjoyable and at times an original read...though it pissed me off that each issue was delayed. Anyway the film came out over here last Wednesday, Me & the Mrs managed to get a babysitter to see it on Saturday and my word it was enjoyable! This is how adaptions should be done...well it could be better. In a way it was better than the comic, especially the last half being quite different which was expected as Miller hadn't actually finished it yet and so Matthew Vaughn & Jane Goldman had to keep going back to Miller. There were some changes that I didn't like such as how in the film you knew who The Red Mist was and also the handling of Dave Lizewski's love thing which to me was dealt with in a much better way than in the movie. Still complaints aside it wasn't fucked up like the Hellblazer/Constatine movie was. All the characters were done really well, even though Red Mist to me was different it was a welcoming change. Direction I could not fault and while the screen play was better in the last half (aside from Dave not walking in on his Dad doing something and the love story being totally different) in the first half I really missed the great dialogue that the comic had especially in regards to Dave and his friends comments on superhero movies. Big Daddy in the comics was more The Dark Night...in the movie he is more Adam West's Batman, which for me was better as it showed the dorky side of the character as well as showing him to be a fucking awesome crime fighter. Big Daddy's back story was also changed in this film, I wont say how as it could spoil the story for some perhaps. For me it was better in the comic. The language is toned down a lot in the film but its for the best, in the comic it seemed too excessive. I do find it hard to believe this film with its violence and language (cunts is said a few times) managed to make a 15 rated over here and yet in the US its rated R which to me is too harsh. A future classic? I think so, its easily one of those films that I could watch over and over and I never found myself to be bored at any time, in fact I'll probably be able to accept the changes and enjoy it more the second time round. Had I not read the comic before I would have deemed it as a perfect comic book movie, still as a comic book movie its light years ahead of many that have graced the screen. Now can someone adapt Millers 1985 into a movie?
