Hey, remember the red-band trailer for Kick-Ass 2?  Well, here’s the exact same clip, but edited to accommodate the more all-ages green-band crowd.  Which means you get all the same things as before—Jim Carrey scene-stealing as the bizarre Colonel Stars and Stripes, some juvenile humor, and a lot of fairly cheap special effects—without much of anything new to go by, or get...

Kick-Ass: Aaron Johnson as Kick-Ass
As I said right after seeing this film at ShoWest, this film does what it says it will, it kick's ass. There are some things that I could pick at if I really wanted to but overall it's a darkly comedic film about fake superheros fighting crime and it's some of the most fun I've had in theaters all year. The tone, the dialogue and the comedic-violence are brilliantly well executed...I was sold...
