Revenge is a dish best served in mother fucking style!
Kick-Ass returns to the streets not to turn two dollar tricks but to save the innocent from the evil that lurks on the city streets. Having been the catalyst of a movement causing people to take up arms and stop the crime on streets Kick-Ass is about to face his biggest threat yet. The worlds first super villain... MOTHER FUCKER! With an army of villains at his disposal Mother Fucker along with the likes of Mother Russia poses the biggest threat to vigilantism yet.
Yes, Kick-Ass 2 is littered with violence, foul language and a spattering of excellence. This is the film of the summer and if you miss it... you miss out!
So fuck you with a twirling hand grenade because all the faults with the first film have been ironed out in this second installment. While some comic book geeks out there may cry because Kick-Ass 2 changes the odd bit here and there, it still remains true to the core story and places Hit Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) and Kick-Ass ( Aaron Taylor-Johnson) centre stage.
Jeff Wadlow doesn't just write and direct this superhero masterpiece, he takes it by the hips and thrusts it home to make an entertaining all-star hit blending comedy, violence, drama and kick-ass action with ease.
Chloe Grace Moretz plays a larger role this time around a thank fuck for that! Was I the only one who thought the first film should have been less Kick-Ass and more Hit Girl? No... good because in Kick-Ass 2 this young bundle of teenage energy, takes ass kicking to a whole new level alongside Aaron Taylor-Johnson who now wants to learn from the young woman he considers to be a real life superhero.
Whilst Kick-Ass finds himself in his own super group led by Colonel Stars and Stripes aka Jim Carrey, it's Hit Girl who tries to lead a normal life and when faced with her very own 'Carrie' moment she tackles school life with style doing what she does best... Chloe Grace-Moretz is remarkably talented and as Hit Girl she rises to the surface as a star alongside Taylor-Johnson and the world's first super villain Christopher Mintz-Plasse aka Mother Fucker!
It's also great to see cameo's from the likes of Yancy Butler who despite her own issues with the bottle, takes to playing the mob wife with a drinking habit no problem. I miss Witchblade and I've missed Yancy, so Kick-Ass as a franchise gets a gold star for putting her back on our screens!
Kick-Ass 2 might be the anti-superhero film but it still manages to drum home the values of a superhero flick. Both Kick-Ass and Hit Girl must face their demons in this one, Mother Russia (Olga Kurkulina) proves to be a formidable opponent for Hit Girl but as with all good superhero flicks, when the going gets tough... we use performance enhancing drugs to get by!! YEAH!!!
In all seriousness though, Kick-Ass is a reminder to geeks that heroes are everyday people that stand up for what they believe in. You can be the nerdiest kid on the block and still be a hero if only you were to speak out about things that empower you. Yes, it's soppy, yes it's sad but when it's sugar coated with exploding cop cars, people getting stabbed in the groin and a seemingly dead shark, then there's no stopping the power of this film and what it can teach the people of the world.
An amazing blockbuster set to create a stir this summer. Kick-Ass 2 is an unmissable flick which you'll want to see again and again!
As for the Jim Carrey and the I Can't support this film due to all the violence... F to the U Carrey.... Kick-Ass 2 is so incredibly out there that you're more likely to find more in common with a monkey than the violence in this film. The line between good and evil is so clearly visible that it would be hard for anyone to think that the violence in this film is real and should be imitated. Yes it's great to pretend to be an uber fighting machine like Kick-Ass or Hit Girl but when reality strikes home, the moobs get in the way and after 12 seconds of exertion the average male has to sit down again.
Take a chill pill Carrey, this film is fantastic and you should be proud of every blood stain on the tarmac!
