The Daily Mail give the movie one star out of five. And some choice quotes. The headline is just the first of many.
Don’t be fooled by the hype: This crime against cinema is twisted, cynical, and revels in the abuse of childhood
And then the comments start – and the Daily Mail does what it set out to do. People have found something to hate. Just in this case, they seem to have the reviewer, Chris Tookey.
Your moral compass seems a bit broken Chris.
Harry Brown (which I loved) – Older man violently kills teenage thugs. In your words “One of the most important films of the year”
Kick Ass (which I also loved) – Teenagers violently kill older thugs. “Evil.”
A strange moral deviation there, and I also find it creepy that you are worried about a 14 year old character finding a 13 year old character attractive in a story. Were you never a teenager? Though judging by your attitudes towards this group maybe you weren’t.
