pretending to be a character from a pretentious indie.
This is the closest thing we ever got to a Nicolas Cage Batman movie.
Kick-ass is a thoroughly entertaining, sleekly stylized, gory, inventive and all-out R-rated riff on the superhero genre. Aaron Taylor-Johnson was good and Chloë Grace Moretz steals the entire movie, her character deserved a spinoff. Tho the villain played by the usually great Mark Strong was extremely weak.
Carlito's Way deserves all of the fame Scarface gets, this Brian De Palma & Al Pacino reunion owns so goddamn hard. Masterful direction on display here by De Palma with some terrific set pieces and a powerhouse performance from Al Pacino.
The finale is an all-timer, featuring the greatest foot chase sequence in film history.
