Release Date: August 16, 2013
Going into watching this sequel, I already made up my mind that this movie would not even come close to how epic the first “Kick-Ass” was. As it turned out, I did the right thing in having low expectations as “Kick-Ass 2” just fails to really connect with the audience as in the first installment. The casting of Jim Carrey was beyond questionable and the film more than likely took a hit when Carrey himself came out and went on an anti-gun rant during his rounds to promote this movie, which for some reason he signed up for a role that deals with guns…alrighty then.
The flow of the movie seemed rushed, too many “superheroes” just crammed onto the screen together and for most of the movie, the best part about the first film, Hit-Girl, gets a major character change, which pretty much doomed this movie right there from getting anything better than 3.5 stars.
Rating: 3 out of 5 stars.
