Kick-Ass 2 Reviews
December 3, 2020
Retains a nearly identical tone to its predecessor - an accomplishment few sequels can boast.

I'd say it's not going to please a good majority of the folks who were pleased by the original.

It's not enough to simply show violence on screen and call it 'entertainment.' What a film has to say about the violence is critical. This film does not accomplish that.

Mildly entertaining on a very superficial level, "Kick-Ass 2" is, at best, a bumpy, uneven ride.

Occasionally confusing but immensely enjoyable, Kick-Ass 2 is an ideal anecdote for those needing a fun comic-book adaptation.

Bad taste is precisely the idea here. However, bad taste really isn't enough to condone some of the material.

Kick-Ass was a clever sneer at "grim and gritty" superhero movies; Kick-Ass 2 really isn't much of anything.

The only character that works is Stars and Stripes, but sadly, writer-director Jeff Wadlow only scratches the surface on his backstory that could have made a much more interesting movie.

Unfortunately, whatever smarts the franchise once had appear to have been knocked out of it in the first round.

There are some kick-ass performances and action scenes here that are certainly worth seeing, but there's also a lot of wandering around with less successful results.

Has none of the original's spark or sly humor, and it's become the empty, reptile-brain spectacle that the original's detractors accused it of being.

Rein in expectations a touch before purchasing your tickets and stay until the end of the credits for a treat.

The action, violence and ludicrous bloodshed are all in ample display here, even if director Jeff Wadlow is not nearly as adept at shooting action as Kick-Ass 1's Matthew Vaughn.

Kick-Ass 2 actually develops its main characters, Hit Girl and Kick Ass, allowing them to grow up in ways that are surprisingly fun and interesting.

It is one big rollicking hot mess of a film, and I like it.
October 20, 2017
The only nice thing I can say about Kick-Ass 2 is that the score by Henry Jackman (Wreck-It Ralph) and Matthew Margeson (Skyline) was pretty cool. Other than that-gross.

While the character development and underlying premise of this installment are far more eloquently stated than they were in the first film, Kick-Ass 2, like its characters, suffers at times from a dual identity.

In trading a modestly subversive critique for a modestly successful romp, Kick-Ass 2 falls short of the expectations set by its predecessor.
