    The movie starts from where the first part ended.Dave is now in senior high school grade.he had the older Hit girl studying in his school.Dave never left his ambition to be a super hero.But ,Mindy the hit girl couldn’t continue with her hit girl identity as she had to listen to her dear ones.The hormone changes that was happening with the Hit Girl made her to behave her like a normal teen.As Hit Girl was not able to join Kick Ass for his heroic actions,he arranged a team with the like minded citizens who were interested in becoming super heroes.Kick Ass being the first life super hero was joined in a group started by Colonel with a motto “Justice Forever”.But at the same time an enemy group too was formed for the super villains with red Mist as their leader.The game started among them.To know the rest of that happened with these groups is the movie.

    Kick Ass 2 was also a good movie.But the scenes showing the girly problems of Mindy was bore at times.That made the movie slow at times.These movies are fun to watch and some sentimental scenes in this movie made it to another dimension.But in all its a watchable movie.I rate the second part with a 6/10! The third part which was rumored as the last part is to be made later.Expecting for that!!

  • Finally this summer we got to see the long awaited sequel to that overrated movie that is Kick-Ass. This movie gained massive popularity thanks to Jim Carrey, who stars in an almost cameo role, as he decided not to promote Kick-Ass 2, claiming “I cannot support that level of violence” after the Sandy Hook massacre. And now everyone hates Jim Carrey and idolizes Kick-Ass 2. I must admit, I did initially like the first movie – until I watched it a second time and found it pretty bad. But I think this explains how it got such good reviews: no critic has seen (nor will ever see) it twice, and probably not many fans have, either. And don’t get me wrong, there’s absolutely no reason to watch it multiple times. Kick-Ass 2, on the other hand, is one of those movies you either hate or love right after the first watching.

    Kick-Ass 2 picks up a few years after the first movie ended. Hit-Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) has been ‘adopted’ by her father’s friend, and detective, Marcus (Morris Chestnut) who expects her to behave like a normal teenager and go to school. Instead, she and Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) skip school in order to train every day. Meanwhile, Chris D’Amico (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) accidentally kills his mother and inherits all of his family’s fortune. So he decides to become a supervillain, names himself The Motherfucker and decides to get revenge on Kick-Ass, because he killed Chris’ father in the first movie.

    There’s an almost-rule regarding superhero movies: the sequel is better than the original movie. That’s not Kick-Ass 2′s case, and I don’t even know how to start bashing it since there’s so much that’s wrong with this movie. First, there’s too many characters and the only ones who are developed are the protagonists from the previous movie, and that’s just because we remember all about them from the previous movie. Here, Kick-Ass is still in a relationship with Katie, after all those years, and yet she gets only a couple of minutes of screen time in order to break up with him – and he’s not even affected by that! Also, bad news for all of you who wanted to see this movie because of Jim Carrey – he gets less than 8 minutes of the movie’s time. Apparently, it’s better to have 15 pointless, quasi-main characters than a few good ones. Quantity, not quality – sounds like we can’t give a damn about anyone acting in this movie! Furthermore, the acting is so unimpressive I can’t find other words to describe it better.

    Kick-Ass 2 is short, but manages to be extremely boring from time to time. On the other hand, its ending feels rushed compared to some unnecessary long, and some simply unnecessary, scenes. The lack of good humour is also worth mentioning, since the first Kick-Ass was mainly based on gore and humour, which was good sometimes. Here, we are expected to laugh at The Motherfucker as he tries to rape a girl but has a momentary erectile dysfunction which makes him give up. This is probably all Jeff Wadlow’s fault, the writer and director of this bad sequel. No wonder he’s a no-name. I hope he never gets a job in movies again. There’s also some bad CGI, but after all the other negative things I’ve mentioned, I think this is the least relevant one. Finally, a question spontaneously comes to mind: why would anybody watch this when there’s Kill Bill – which isn’t perfect but it’s certainly much, much better?

    Rating: 4/10
