Kick-Ass 2

Costumed vigilante Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) returns alongside Hit Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) as the pair deal with high-school life, the emerging DIY superhero movement, and their old nemesis Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) – tastefully renamed The Mother F**ker. Co-stars Jim Carrey and Scrubs' Donald Faison.

The explosive events of the first film inspired the rise of a new league of superheroes called Justice Forever, led by the gruff Colonel Stars and Stripes (Carrey). Kick-Ass joins their patrol, but when members of the squad fall victim to The Mother F**ker, it's up to Hit Girl to prevent the total annihilation of Justice Forever.

It’s somewhat surprising that many of the fight scenes in Kick-Ass 2 aren’t all that memorable, given they were the only thing worth remembering in Jeff Wadlow’s Never Back Down. The highway sequence in particular is a victim of bad post-production. Still, the sequel’s new director admirably keeps the manic mix of R-rated comedy and action seen in Matthew Vaughn’s original while omitting the terrible attempts at shock-drama that polluted Mark Millar’s comic – the ultra-violence is already full-on without the need of animal decapitation, child slaughter and gang rape.

Full of American crap!

Extremely primitive and predictable, full of American crap values. Bad acting and stupid costumes underlined by a confusing script of ups and downs from happy happy pancake pancake to senseless violence in seconds. How anybody can even remotely compare this ridicules garbage with the first one is beyond me. Avoid at all costs.

Loved it, a great sequel

I enjoyed Kick-Ass 2 as much as I enjoyed the first one. The characters, especially Hit Girl, felt much better developed. Even though it was nearly two hours long, it didn't feel like it dragged on, which was good.

Kick-Ass 2

Matthew Vaughn's stylized, ultra-violent Kick-Ass is the coolest superhero movie I've ever seen, so of course I was excited for the sequel. I absolutely loved Kick-Ass 2. Even though it's nowhere near as good as the first, there's a lot of things in Kick-Ass 2 that really kicked ass. Chloe Moretz is amazing as Mindy Macready AKA Hit-Girl, trying to live her...

As diverting as this action-packed caper often is, it feels not just weightless but emotionally and morally stunted whenever it veers into grown-up dramatic territory.

A fun if sporadically schizoid return to one of the brighter, brasher comic-bookers of recent years.

The best thing about ‘Kick-Ass’ was Moretz, and Hit-Girl still gets the best lines. Like the first film, Kick-Ass 2 pulls the reality of teen life into its fantasy.

There isn't anything good to say about Kick-Ass 2.

A messy, confused, over-the-top mixture of brutality and sick comedy, puckishness and ugliness, self-awareness and tone-deafness.

The film delivers almost exactly what fans of the first installment are hoping for.

A more modest success than the first "Kick-Ass," but still of-a-piece with its scurrilous predecessor. Nobody flies a jet-pack up a skyscraper this time, but Kick-Ass 2 still has its share of over-the-top action, and the sweary laughs are just about intact.
