Awesome flim - a must seeBy TopGun (12 reviews) from Kettering , 05 Nov 2010
[Highly rated reviewer]
[Highly rated reviewer]So p*ssed off i couldnt rent this title but thankfully a friend helped me out.
This has to be one of the best flims of the year. Frankly I wasn't expecting much but it blew me away.
This film is so much better than Iron Man 2
If you haven't seen this yet - it is well worth watching. The eleven yo Hit Girl makes this film.

Not as good as I thought it was going to be.By KarateRob (6 reviews) , 15 Jun 2013Not a great film. I was expecting it to be a lot better. Some good action but I was not taken by the story. Worth a watch but nothing special.
Watch this film, just not this particular disc!By mattecky (46 reviews) from durham , 11 May 2013
[Highly rated reviewer]I was not expecting such a high body count. I was not expecting to enjoy a film with Nicholas Cage. I was, however, hoping to enjoy a film that has an 11 year old girl uttering the 'C Word'.
The violence is very well choreographed and there are some neat touches that give nods to the film's comic roots. I look forward to the forthcoming sequel but one thing...please kill off Red Mist early doors. I find him creepy and utterly pointless.
I wanted a touch more comedy in the film but this is a small complaint. I am now to hunt down a copy of the comic.
One thing though, my disc looked like it had been used on an orbital sander. This reduced my enjoyment as I had to skip chapters then rewind to the point just after where it had stuck.
A must see!By Slim44 (3 reviews) , 24 Apr 2013Very funny, although some might find the high body count slightly disturbing- especially as most are inflicted by an 11 year-old girl!
Extremely enjoyable action/comedy with great castingBy Bassman71 (630 reviews) from Didsbury, England , 19 Apr 2013High School nerd, life pretty ordinary, wants to become a Superhero, has altercation, has reconstructive surgery, foils attack, becomes a hero, gang boss wants him dead. Extremely enjoyable action/comedy which doesnt take itself too seriously and mixes witty dialogue with some over-the-top gore and smart fight choreography. A really good bit of casting too with Aaron Taylor-Johnson in the lead, Mark Strong hamming it up as the gangster boss and Nicholas Cage in one of the best roles Ive seen him in for a while. As usual with Matthew Vaughn its brilliantly shot and comes with a fantastic soundtrack with the use of Elvis American Trilogy a real highlight.
New Age Superhero Brilliance!By FullofStars (42 reviews) from Scotland , 13 Apr 2013New take on the superhero genre in this super black comedy. Full of action, wit and humour amidst 'Oh my god' moments that are truly shocking. Hit Girl steals the show with a stellar performance, full of depth and hidden meanings. Recommend!!
