Crook 2010 Blu Ray 720p Kickass 16
told in a nonlinear style, the story picks up with johnny bolt struggling to make ends meet while working as a petty criminal. his home life is made up of an ex-wife who has left him for a young celebrity neighbor, and his children, who have only ever known him as a criminal.
the cast includes the following: jay jay warren as marcus storm, a youthful ex-cop turned vigilante; timothy bottoms as john bolt, a petty thief with an electricity-powered suit; siobhan fallon as pansy, a female agent for a clandestine government organization; cody kostro as omen, a sociopathic genius with unusually powerful abilities; and sofia happonen as juliet, marcus's widow.
although this isn't an action/superhero story, the story's overall tone is one of joy. jonny's selfish life as a criminal is fueled by his love of his kids, the joy he gets out of stealing from corrupt or evil people, and his appreciation for the great men in his life, like his former mentor. the tv show is essentially a story about old-fashioned fun, telling us a few things about the world and how that fun works. its thoughtful, funny, and i give it my highest recommendation.
i think there was a concern on the part of some executives at dc that if i did this and nobody knew about it, it would be viewed as an immediate hit of "here comes alan moore." but that kind of thinking, i think, is shortsighted. with the pace at which certain comic publishers are moving, theyre looking at their legacy of characters and theyre trying to go, "how can we capitalize on this?"
there are things that are so ingrained in the personalities of the characters, and in some ways, they have a very full circle feel to them. so it isnt like, "oh, i just want to have fun and make a money grab." its more, "how can we marry these elements to make the type of story that fits the characters and the universe that we've been building for years?" and thats what marvel is going to do with kick-ass 2. d8a7b2ff72
its very important for an idea to have a certain type of character. supercrooks is very kind of a dystopian character. im not talking about the world, but like, whats going on in the world. its kind of like a version of suicide squad , but with a japanese twist. also, i feel like the idea of being a superhero is kind of a crazy concept for a lot of people, so this is a good way to kind of shake the world up a bit. but i think that it has a lot of similarities to kick-ass and the magic order. i think that i can make a really good superhero show, but i think that i have to do something original.

we sat down with crook for a jomocast episode. we chatted about her recent book, her research on digital mindfulness, and why it's important to stay connected, both to people and things. here's the direct link to that episode:
how does it hold up the best thing about super crooks is that it never wastes time or gets bogged down in the cliches of anime. the show is fun, fast-paced, and has a great story that is easy to follow. there are still a few instances where you might think the words are coming out of the characters mouth, but the only thing that is actually happening is the characters are talking. the art design is amazing, and the backgrounds and explosions are amazing. the show is definitely not for kids. if you like comedies, action, or anime, this show will definitely hold your interest. its worth a watch if you have a hankering for something new. if you havent watched anime in a while, give it a try.
