Sequels are generally worse.

Usually critics dislike sequels because, surprise! Their not very good, I'm looking forward to Kick Ass 2 as well, but I doubt any critic gave this a bad review simply on the basis that it's a sequel, same with any other sequel that got bad reviews.

Because Jeff Wadlow is a retarded fucking director, that's why.
Star Trek 2 got good reviews, Iron Man 2 got good reviews, Spider-Man 2 got good reviews, 28 Weeks later, Clerks 2, X-Men 2, Before Sunset, Bourne Supremacy, The Dark Knight, etc.

Yeah, and Grown Ups 2 got the same love the first one did!

Entertain Me Or TIE
But those movies came out years ago.
The only reason Star Trek Into Darkness got good reviews is because JJ Abrams is incapable of fucking up his track record of good movies; that's why he's a wise choice for Star Wars. Iron Man 2 got good reviews but for some reason many people seem to hate the fuck out of it.

Jeff Widalow, the director of Kick Ass 2, only made 2 films before this, both which were financial and critical failures. With him directing, I knew that the reception was going to be mixed at best.

Well, they all came out after 2000. That's fairly recent, some more than others. I could probably name more. I don't think critics hate movies just because they're sequels. Now REMAKES I could see critics hating no matter what, because remakes are usually pointless tributes to how little creativity exists in Hollywood's studios.
