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

Kick-Ass 2 is a giddy kind of ride, offering up well-designed action scenes and a few perfectly aimed visual gags but it never does much with its own satirical stylings.

Chloe Grace Moretz and the character of Hit Girl are so infinitely more entertaining than the film around them, you can't help but wonder why it's not just a movie about her.

A more tonally consistent piece than its predecessor.

The problem with being shocking is that you can only shock once.

Kick-Ass 2 has a twisted energy, and from the first scene, in which a caustic Mindy teaches Dave about the importance of a bulletproof vest, it tries everything it can think of.

Mindless drivel.

Although the film has the cheap veneer of female empowerment that comes from having a girl assassin, it is rotten with misogyny.

The tone's too rough to be funny. Kick-Ass 2 suffers from being a little too real.
Joel Harley
Starburst
July 7, 2015
It's well-acted, amusing and occasionally a lot of fun, but that's tempered with a mean, ugly streak that makes it quite sad to watch.

Should Kick-Ass 2 represent the end of the line for this polarising, guilty pleasure-defining franchise, it sure was fun while it lasted.

A rather dispiriting affair.

This sequel is really a pale shadow of the original.

A violent, often lewd, R-rated action film aimed at children and childlike adults, the film is part of a new trend: making sequels because some think that having a number in your film's title is a marketing advantage.

If you're a big fan of the first movie, prepare to be disappointed here.

Taylor-Johnson and Moretz were outstanding as relative newcomers, but that magic has also thinned. They coast on talent, but both were better in the first film.

When the movie isn't delivering thrill of the moment pleasures, we find ourselves with less than nothing: zero to hold onto and plenty to despise.

Kick-Ass 2 fails on every level imaginable, as well as a few levels heretofore unimaginable.

Like all the other shocking things that happen in Kick-Ass 2 -- including a couple significant deaths -- it happens, it's forgotten about and it's on to the next shocking twist.

Your enjoyment will depend a lot on whether you regard murder, mutilation and dismemberment as good, harmless fun. If you do, you will certainly find this movie a great deal more entertaining and wholesome than I did.
