    Lionsgate continues rolling out restricted material for Kick-Ass. As I've written about in past articles they are faced with the necessity of displaying the nature of the film which is explicit with language and violence.

The reaction to it from those unfamiliar with the comic book wasn't overwhelming since it didn't really get across the R-rated and graphic nature that makes it unique. Buzz on the film is off the charts however. Just last week it was screened at BNAT along with other movies including Shutter Island and Avatar.
