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.
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.
