The real-life teenage superheroes are back for another hundred minutes of excessive and bloody violence in one of the most anticipated sequels of the year. Just ignore the bad reviews; I personally think all that fuss is because Jim Carrey condemned the movie for its violence. It’s a movie about real-life crime fighting and real-life super villains, what else would you expect anyway?
While Hit-Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) lays low and abandons crime-fighting, Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) teams up with new super heroes wondering the streets, in a group led by Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), to serve the city every way they can. Then comes Motherfucker, last known as Red Mist, (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) and screws things up.
Although the movie didn’t have the originality of its predecessor, it still had the good sense of humor and Hit-Girl, while Jim Carrey was just a pleasant addition. Hit-Girl, portrayed by the beautiful Chloë, was the best thing about the sequel too, and watching her tear those villains apart was extremely fun. As for Jim Carrey, then the dude was terrific, stealing every scene he was in from forming the group to kicking criminal ass. The only bad thing about this movie is the drama we didn’t see in Kick-Ass; but it gave us more blood and more violence thus it’s good to go.
Basically, Kick-Ass 2 wasn’t great, but it did justice to the first movie, and with the excessive violence, more Hit-Girl and Jim Carrey, it’s a superhero movie I liked enough to watch twice.
Rating: 7.0/10; Bloody violence with the occasional laughter.
