Not to get all political, but for anyone who does follow the adventures of online agenda-led bloggers, this plays like a pretty funny deconstruction of the James O’Keefe ACORN videos – in which he pretended to be a pimp to see if he could get government funding – only this time it’s Kick-Ass posing as a pimp to unveil perceived wrongdoers.
And then there’s a bloodthirsty teenage vigilante fucking everyone’s shit up at the end. I wasn’t initially all that happy with her overly Tarantino-wannabe one-liners, but it’s kinda justified by the end – and ironically enough, given Jim Carrey’s moral qualms about the film, seems to hint at a more meta commentary on violent films wrongly inspiring unbalanced people to imitate them. We’ll see. I could be very wrong.
Watch after the jump.
