The Premiere of Kick Ass, my night with the stars.

Last night I was giving the fantastic opportunity of attending the European premiere of Kick Ass.

And now I don’t even know where to begin a write up…the film was pure genius, the venue was amazing and the stars gracing our presence were distracting and awe worthy. Walking down a red carpet with cameras flashing and people screaming is something I reccomend everyone does in their lifetime. The feeling is second to none. Not to mention being sat in a cinema knowing full well Brad Pitt is sat behind you.

However once all the star spangled aura had settled, and the curtains parted, I can honestly say I don’t think I’ve ever heard a quieter cinema. Everyone was glued to the screen, and I had actual goosebumps. The atmosphere was completely electric, and the film delivered beyond expectations throughout every single minute.

I’ve never been in a cinema where people clap and cheer and laugh so loudly, but far from being annoying, it simply adds to the experience. I’m reluctant to write a review, because I want to see it again!

What I will say is, it does differ slightly from the comic, but that’s no big deal I think in some ways I prefer the film. Hit girl obviously steals the show in every single scene she’s in, and although a British actor wasn’t wanted, Aaron Johnson played Kick Ass incredibly well. A friend of mine thinks that Red Mist was a little miscast, and I can see his point, but for the purpose of the film, a boy wanting his fathers approval, Christopher mintz-plasse does well.

I would encourage everyone to see this film, don’t be put off by the stupid Daily Mail, and don’t believe that Jane Goldman wrote the comic! Yes she was heavily involved in the film, and huge credit to her, but we have Mark Millar to thank for his genius piece of writing, and possibly my new favourite film of all time.
