I really don't care what the critics are saying, Kick-Ass 2 is just as much fun as the first one. It follows the story of the comic pretty close and delivers as a solid sequel. Hopefully they'll still make the third installment despite the poor reviews.
I would not recommend this movie. It's pretentious, and it's overly ambitious in the sense that the filmmaker thinks (for some reason) that the audience will enjoy this film. Do yourself a favor and ignore this one.
This is a really fun summer action movie with tons of plot-holes but enough cool shit going on so that you don't really care. It's probably not worth seeing if you don't see it in theaters. Movie snobs will HATE this.
