Kick-Ass 2

Comic Action Comedy Crime


 

The costumed high-school hero Kick-Ass joins with a group of normal citizens who have been inspired to fight crime in costume.

"Kick-Ass 2" returns with the same manic mix of comedy and action that made its predecessor so uniquely original and successful. Unfortunately you can't help but compare the two, and although a gang of new heroes and villains offer some freshness, the shock-drama that was once edgy and brash now feels regurgitated and routine. Despite the film's clumsiness, it is still sporadically funny and gruesome enough to entertain those open to the experience. Kicks ass in name only.
