Kick-Ass 2 Reviews

Laramie Movie Scope

Like many sequels, 'Kick-Ass 2' falls short of the original. It fails to achieve that delicate balance, achieved so well in the original film, of comedy and violence.

Easily one of the year's worst films.

In the end, Kick-Ass 2 just kicks the audience's arse too much, and with too much unnecessary force...

So long as ChloŽ Grace Moretz's murderous Mindy Macready - aka Hit Girl - remains in the limelight, I'll take little umbrage with the bastardisation of the comics upon which these movies are based.

Cinema Crazed

Loses all of its edge while anxiously trying to convince the audience it's still a subversive bit of meta-superhero cinema.

Isn't it time Hit-Girl got a movie of her own? She's still the best thing about this franchise.

A movie that resembles Bugsy Malone with real weapons.

If Kick-Ass 2 manages to distinguish itself at all, it's by establishing a new standard for the level of disinterest a film can show in its title character.

Silly, ridiculous, violent and worthy.

A relentlessly-gruesome bloodfest of no redeeming value that at least Jim Carrey had the decency to 'fess up about.

An otherwise standard action film with B-movie feel, Kick-Ass 2 is a 'good' but not 'great' followup to the surprisingly smart, stylish and witty original.

This film will find its audience, no doubt, but here's hoping the stunts on display find no copycats.

Flimsy and floundering, one of the stupidest sequels ever.

Kick-Ass 2 by name - and Kick-Ass too by nature.

Solve a crossword puzzle. Call grandma. Do whatever you like. But don't see this reprehensible movie.

If it works at all, fitfully, it's because of the precociously talented and in-control Moretz, who basically carries the entire film on her own small shoulders.

Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)

Like its predecessor, "Kick-Ass 2" subjects its audience to some over-the-top, bloody and gross violence. ... But it is performed in such a pleasing, comic-book manner that you can't be repulsed nor offended.

It's as if the filmmakers wanted to deliver a bitingly sardonic satire of violence in society, but the studio was forcing them to make a mainstream superhero movie.

You're left with a legacy libel against Vaughn and Goldman that Johnnie Cochran couldn't defend.

Three years ago, Matthew Vaughn's crazy, wild "Kick-Ass" was shocking. It's a quality that is not duplicated in the new "Kick-Ass 2," which feels arbitrary and unnecessary.
