I really liked the graphic novel and I cannot wait for the movie to open later this week. I think the girl playing Hit-Girl is just too perfect. I am not sure about Nicholas Cage as big Daddy but I am willing to keep an open mind. For those not into graphic novels the movie might still be worth seeing. There will be tons of violence and gun play. In one of the previews you even get a very nice look at what appears to be a stainless slide SA XD. Kick "booty" trailer Warning: The trailer is rated "R"...so no children or nancy boys.
