Starring: Nicolas Cage, Christopher Mintz-Plasse

This movie is not what I expected at all.  I wonder why, the marketing for this movie makes it look like a funny kid, super hero movie.  Well, it’s funny to those that think microwaving a man, or a 11 year old girl with a bazooka is cool.

I am not a parent, but there were some things in this movie that don’t belong.  I am a huge fan of action movies, shoot em ups, good guy gets bad guy, etc.  But, I am not for dark humor that has children intertwined in this level of violent acts.  And we wonder why children are getting killed at school.  I’m not blaming Hollywood, however they do hold some responsibility for marketing that is actually marketing the movie, the real movie.

I don’t care if this was based off a comic book.  A motion picture is more impressionable on children because as we know, they watch a lot of TV.  A comic book still has some words on the page, and most of the children out there today, don’t pick up reading material easily; even a comic book.

Roger Ebert says it all, the film is “morally reprehensible.”  I concur.  I guess I am just more conservative for most of the audiences today.  Call me old fashioned, but this film is ridiculous.
