Some parts of this movie are perfect, others are so terribly innaccurate it hurts. As a biography, it sucks. As mindless entertainment, it's pretty good.

Great use of the Sparks' "This Town Ain't Big Enough for Both of Us" right in the middle of the film.
Wow. All I can say is I did not expect this. Loads of fun but for those not in the know (like me), it's extremely violent.

We don't really have any ratings in Croatia, I wonder, how strictly do they adhere to them in the States? Coz the primary audience of this movie is obviously the 13-19 age group and I take it they could only watch it with a parent or adult guardian...

It's rated R in the US which means 17 and up. I haven't seen it but from what I've heard the primary audience wouldn't be as young as you're thinking.

Kick-Ass was 15 in the UK, I went to watch it and forgot my ID, I was praying I didn't get ID'd for it.. and I'm 18. I got ID'd for a 16 year old rated video game once. People are sh*t.

Yeah, still, I figure loads of teenagers didn't get to see it right?

Anyhow, I heard lots of praise for this film so based on the poster I concluded it was some lighthearted kids movie and recommended it to a colleague of mine and her 10 year old kid! Thankfully she was too lazy to take him but wow...so very much not appropriate for kids...:|

Kids actually don't mind this kind of things... Like I used to read the most violent manga comics when I was only 10, and never thought of blood as "human blood", it's part of the comics aesthetics.
Now that I'm older, I wonder how I never found Tom&Jerry violent.

Visually surprising, I didn't expect it to be as easy on the eyes as it was. A lot of the shots that were outside, the surroundings were really well shot. I thought it was a brilliant rise and fall type film, the way Kubrick manipulates your perception of a character is great, you start off with any film, the main character - you like. Whether it's a monster like Patrick Bateman (American Psycho.) or Forrest Gump, you like them and nothing much really changes in your opinion of them, because they're the star of the show. I found it strange how you really like Barry, and then as the film goes on your opinion of him starts to change.
