Which ending do you like better? Gets the girl or loses her?

Do you prefer the movie ending where Kickass gets the girl or the comicbook ending where she ends up hating him and sends him that nasty photo of her with her boyfriend Carl?

The one from comic book. I think that making Dave get the girl really disgraced whole point of story.

Since i know its ongoing of sorts, i prefer the one where he loses, but if I thought that this was the end? No sequels and all that, I'd prefer him winning the 'girl' since I like happy endings and all that.

Losing the girl : the movie glorify a little too much violence/vigilantism, hell Big Daddy even seems like a good guy in the movie.

That's cause Mark Millar only wrote the first half of the movie. Mathew Vaughn wrote the last half.

@Benuben:  I don't think it totally went against the point of the story. The idea that the girl would automatically swoon over the hero was played with (spray in face), but after Dave confesses and apologizes, Katie lets him into her life. In movies people typically don't like really negative endings - hence the 1980s Little Shop of Horrors got its ending changed 
 
@Yumulu: Big Daddy is more of a good guy in the movie because he's not an ascended comic book nerd who kidnapped his daughter and thought "Man, wouldn't it be fun to go against bad guys" - While I understand in the comic book the point was "Big Daddy is just a guy even more crazy than Dave," the filmmakers felt that putting that revelation in would mess up the flow of the movie. Also, the comic reveal was more of an injoke for comic book readers, and it wouldn't mean the same for cinema audiences.

Yeah, but look at alot of other things done in the 80s. Watchmen, Frank Miller's Daredevil run.

I think "not getting the girl and receiving bad photo" makes more sense.

Me and my friends were watching the bedroom scene in the movie and just WAITING for her to punch him in the face or something. When it didn't happen, and they made out instead - we were surprised, but not mad. It was an alright twist - it didn't really ruin it for me.
 
But Millar's version is what Millar intended, and it makes more sense.

So I just saw the Kick-Ass movie for the first time and realized that I am a complete sucker for happy endings. Maybe that's why I like characters like Superman or older comics where everything is just fine and dandy by the end of each arc.

to be honest its probably better cause its gonna make what happens in kick ass 2 more impact-full i wont say cause it might not happen and i don't want to ruin the story of kick-ass 2

loses her,

i hate mushy romantic stuff in comic book movies.

#16 Posted by kgb725 (5970 posts) - - Show Bio

He kept her but he lost her anyways so it didnt matter

#17 Posted by comedy_brosUSA (758 posts) - - Show Bio

losing the girl. getting her is too unrealistic. he's a nerd, and it just isn't realistic for him to get a girl really. that's what made the movie differences weird.

i thought that was dumb in the second movie, but it was because Katie had another show to work on, so she could only make a small appearence

@allstarsuperman: I understand that but the way she left was very odd

yeah they were supposedly together for 2 years and then she dumps him over a misunderstanding, not to mention she appearantly cheated on him

@allstarsuperman: If she died or had a traumatic experience then that would be understandable hell even if she moved away but i couldve written that better
