Its witty humor and repartee [has] mostly [been] taken away, leaving only crass, unfunny lines that at the most inspire a chuckle.

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.

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

Kick-Ass 2 has nothing to say, and it says it in the most vulgar way possible.

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

Tossing aside just about everything that made the first movie a cult favorite, Wadlow makes clear he doesn't understand the meaning of the word parody.

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.

Kick-Ass 2 is not without its occasional pleasures, but viewed as either its own movie or a follow up to its predecessor, the sequel is a pretty severe disappointment, and a rough cinematic experience to boot.

These filmmakers have ended up with a sequel that lacks the freshness of the original film. It brings nothing new to the table, satisfied with simply throwing these characters together again and hoping that everything will turn out for the best.

Bravo Jim Carrey, bravo. Refusing to promote your work in Kick-Ass 2 is the wisest career move you've ever made.

Just as confused, conflicted and poorly conceived as the hero himself.

Imagine if Jonathan Swift had penned a sequel to A Modest Proposal where you couldn't tell if he was serious about cannibalism. That's Kick-Ass 2, a weird, fake satire. LET THEM EAT BABIES. I THINK.

Sticking to the original's box-office-busting formula of blood, guts, boobs, and bad words, Wadlow sleepwalks through the material, failing to inject any personality into what's actually an incredibly disturbing story of pathological teens.

Maybe we should have left this franchise where it started.

KICK-ASS 2 defames the original. It's a style-less and humourless retread; sans heart.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

A total failure of a movie? Hardly. But in its will to reinvent and experiment anew with everything we discovered in the original, we'd have to call Kick-Ass 2 effectively powerless.

Kick-Ass 2 is the very model of a sequel with no place to go.

A cancerous pretender promising something different but only offering up crass costumed zeroes

'Kick-Ass 2′ is founded on "why not?"
