Kick-Ass 2 
"Kick Ass 2" by Yojimbo
1/4 stars

Ordinary High School kid Dave decides to revive the career of his crime fighting alter ego, but when Hit Girl refuses to break a promise to lead a normal life he seeks like-minded hero wannabes to patrol the streets. I am a huge fan of the first film so to say Kick Ass 2 was a disappointment is an understatement of the highest order. It's one of those sequels that manages to completely miss the point of the original; gone is the perfectly judged blend of cartoon violence and sly, witty black humour. Instead we have a cross between a frat boy gross out comedy of the most witless kind and a particularly weak episode of Buffy The Vampire Slayer. The violence is ugly, the humour tasteless, the plot paper thin and it completely lacks any of the winning charm and faux naivete of the first film. It feels like it was put together by a studio marketing department who thought Kick Ass was just "people in funny costumes swearing and hitting each other to pop music" rather than anyone with any imagination, flair, invention or even a sense of humour. Basically Kick Ass 2 is the worst kind of sequel; one that actually manages to diminish the original.
