Will give you your fill of action - but whereas the original film struck a good balance between the action and more light-hearted scenes - this one is all business. Even the scenes with ChloŽ Grace Moretz trying to pass as a "normal" high school freshman have an edge to them. That being said, it was still good to see these characters again, and the newcomers (Including Jim Carrey, Donald Faison and Lindy Booth) were welcome as well. Just a bit more serious than I was expecting (though the comic went even further).

Kick-Ass 2 review

Bloodier, more action/eye candy but less filling. Dave Lizewski wants to partner with Mindy Macready. Marcus, Mindy's new guardian and friend of her fathers, tells Mindy to stop fighting. Chris transforms into MF while Dave joins Justice Forever, led by Colonel Stars and Stripes, Battle Guy (Dave's friend, Marty), Dr. Gravity, Insect Man, Night-Bitch, and the parents of a missing child named Tommy. Chris forms his own team. Some wonderful lines: "My dad wasn't afraid of living." - Mindy. "But this is the real world." "This is your life you've got to live it." - Dave. "Try to have fun, otherwise whatís the point?" - Stars & Stripes. Themes of bullying, finding your identity, friendship, teamwork and acceptance were well exemplified. Its low-lights were the lack of focus on Kick-A...

Definition of summer movie - this movie.

The first Kick-Ass movie was a pretty big success. You could almost say it garnered a cult following, because so many loved it for its exceptional action and humor, the different take on superheroes.
I have mixed feelings about Kick-Ass. Sometimes I loved it, sometimes I had severe problems with it. For example, the action was filmed brilliantly by Matthew Vaughn and Chloe Grace Moretz stole the show as Hit-Girl, other times I cringed at the sight of children being beat up.

So what did I think of Kick-Ass 2? I think it's exactly like the first one, only just a little bit less enjoyable.
It has exactly the same things to love and to hate, it has the immature humor, over-the-top action and wanna-be superhero characters, but has more violence against children and again scenes that made ...

Review: Kick-Ass 2

I'll say right away that I think the world of Kick-Ass. I adore it. I adore the relationship between Hit Girl and Big Daddy. I adore the visceral comic tone is establishes and sustains. I adore the cleverness of the script and the substantial richness of the characters. I adore Matthew Vaughn and his wonderful vision he brought to the table. There's two things that the movie earns - its title and its R-rating. If there's one flaw that inhabits the existence of that film, it's that it developed sequel sickness. Yes, of course, Kick-Ass 2 was made, and Jeff Wadlow of all people was hired to write and direct the film.

The central problem with the film is that, yes, it's bloody and visceral and energetic - but it's not fun. It lacks the vibrant spark that made the first film work. What ma...

'Kick-Ass 2' Kicks Less Ass

'Kick-Ass 2' is an underwhelming sequel. When compared to the first, it's not up to par in most areas. The best reason I can find for the inconsistency is the fact that there is a new writer/director at the helm, Jeff Wadlow. The story is a true continuation, with the characters and comic-book style presented in the same fashion as the previous, but Wadlow doesn't carry over those qualities that made 'Kick-Ass' more substantial and completely enjoyable. That perfect balance of reality, fantasy, bloody violence, crudeness, humor, and heart is gone here. Instead, Wadlow emphasizes the crudeness and the violence by taking away the reality entirely and adding in many unneeded gross gags. There's also no consequence to the violence this time. Mintz-Plasse's villain 'The Motherfucker' ea...
