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

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.
April 9, 2019
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.
November 2, 2018
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.

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.

This is a very uneven film.

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.
July 14, 2016
In trading a modestly subversive critique for a modestly successful romp, Kick-Ass 2 falls short of the expectations set by its predecessor.

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.
July 7, 2015
Mindless drivel.
July 7, 2015
Although the film has the cheap veneer of female empowerment that comes from having a girl assassin, it is rotten with misogyny.
July 7, 2015
The tone's too rough to be funny. Kick-Ass 2 suffers from being a little too real.
July 7, 2015
A rather dispiriting affair.
July 7, 2015
This sequel is really a pale shadow of the original.
July 7, 2015
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.
July 7, 2015
If you're a big fan of the first movie, prepare to be disappointed here.
July 7, 2015
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.
