WoW, I loved this movie and loved hit-girl; she needs her own movie!, o'l girl kicked much ass too! hell in kick ass SHE WAS THE MOVIE! Ok, I'm back, since this is coming from Lionsgate, it is very possible it might have a 7.1 mix; they are big on the 7.1 soundtrack for movies. I will buy it, day one no matter what!
most fun i have had at the movies in forever. best movie of the year by far in my opinion. i think aside from Watchmen last year i have never been as excited at the movies as I was for this one. can't wait! preorder!
Yeah Ebert probabaly forgot he was watching a movie and it wasn't real life, after he wrote a review insulting us for enjoying "watching girls get hit" he went to his grand children and talked about art direction and editing
He needs to hang it up, walk out with his chin held high.
