Review:

I was lucky enough to be able to see this movie in theaters, but I was pregnant at the time and my hormones really messed with my perception of a lot of things. After a re-watch I believe I might like this more than I originally did.

Yes the scenes where Hit Girl is trying to figure out who she is are annoying, but then without those scenes I wouldn’t get the scene were those girls vomited and shit all over the place, and that was pretty damn funny.

It was also really violent, and while most of the time I don’t mind that, with this movie there were times I had to look away. Not sure why and I don’t feel like analyzing it at this moment to figure it out.

Overall I liked the story and the movie. I do find it funny that Jim Carey starred in this and then spoke out against gun violence. What a dick.

4/5
