"Kick-Ass" is getting great reviews and while most fans and critics are enjoying the movie, there are still a bunch of people who cannot get over the fact that an 11-year-old girl (Chloe Moretz) was asked to speak in a very crude way.

One of those people is critic Roger Ebert, who gave the film a single star and declared it to be "morally reprehensible." Seems pretty harsh considering that there is more to the movie than just a little girl using inappropriate language.

Ebert wrote (possible spoilers): "Shall I have feelings, or should I pretend to be cool? Will I seem hopelessly square if I find Kick-Ass morally reprehensible and will I appear to have missed the point? Let's say you're a big fan of the original comic book, and you think the movie does it justice. You know what? You inhabit a world I am so very not interested in. A movie camera makes a record of whatever is placed in front of it, and in this case, it shows deadly carnage dished out by an 11-year-old girl, after which an adult man brutally hammers her to within an inch of her life. Blood everywhere. Now tell me all about the context."
