Kick-Ass

 (2010)

Kick-Ass Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Dave Lizewski, a comic-book fanboy, decides to take his obsession as inspiration to become a real-life superhero. As any good superhero would, he chooses a new name -- Kick-Ass -- assembles a suit and mask to wear, and gets to work fighting crime. There's only one problem standing in his way: Kick-Ass has absolutely no superpowers. His life is forever changed as he inspires a subculture of copy cats, is hunted by assorted violent and unpleasant characters, and meets up with a pair of crazed vigilantes, including an 11-year-old sword-wielding dynamo, Hit Girl and her father, Big Daddy.

For more about Kick-Ass and the Kick-Ass Blu-ray release, see Kick-Ass Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Nicolas Cage, Garrett M. Brown, Clark Duke, Lyndsy Fonseca, Deborah Twiss
Narrator: Aaron Taylor-Johnson
Director: Matthew Vaughn

Kick-Ass Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in 1080p utilizing the AVC codec (at a bitrate that averages around 22Mbps), Kick-Ass is a bit of an oddity when it comes to the visual style of the film. I'd never go so far as saying this is merely average or even subpar when stacked up to other recent blockbusters, but there are frequent moments in the film where something feels slightly "off". Whether it's the bleeding brightness of a sun-drenched sky or the unstable coloring on Hit-Girl's purple wig, we're given an end product that almost takes on a surreal characteristic, enhancing the over-the-top nature of the film itself. Fortunately, this doesn't often extend into fine object detail, allowing most textures to reveal a sense of depth that rivals all but the best Blu-ray productions. I wish the same could be said of the coloring in the film, but as I mentioned before, there seems to be a hint of color-boosting in several shots that will surely catch the eye of the most discerning videophiles, making you wonder if your eyes are playing tricks on you. Likewise, you'll notice a degree of black level weakness in a handful of shots, as the transfer struggles to fend off a shift to gray--forcing contrast to steady the subtle shade differentiations in the moderately dark portions of the screen. Getting back to the positive aspects of the transfer, I never noticed the appearance of edge halos, artifacting or aliasing, and grain is presented in an unobtrusive fashion.

In summary, when the transfer looks good, it REALLY looks good. However, it never quite reaches the upper echelon of its peers.


Kick-Ass Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Continuing with Lionsgate's trend of offering a lossless 7.1 audio track on their blockbuster titles, Kick-Ass is every bit the entertaining beast we'd expect it to be. Surround separation is the primary contributing element in the overall proficiency of the audio experience, tossing the whimsical soundtrack from speaker to speaker with the grace of a butterfly, and delivering the playfully violent audio effects in a manner than never felt flat or stagnate. An excellent example of what I'm referring to can be found in the well-staged warehouse fight sequence pitting Big Daddy against a legion of goons with firepower. Bullets ricochet around the room with an aural assault that's sure to leave a gleeful expression on your face as you soak up the onscreen carnage.

Alas, not every scene in the film can be a violence-laden example of finely-tuned immersion, leaving dialog-heavy sequences a bit more front-heavy than I'd prefer. Clarity and richness are still superb during the quieter moments of the film, but I'd expect more side-to-side separation across the front spectrum on any release worthy of a perfect 5-star rating, reducing this to a mere 4.5/5 in my book.
