Kick-Ass 2 (2013)

Director: Jeff Wadlow
Writers:  Jeff Wadlow, Mark Millar
Cast:       Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloe Grace Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Jim Carrey

Kick-Ass teams up with a group of normal citizens who have been inspired to fight crime as Hit-Girl goes into retirement. Meanwhile, Red Mist plots an act of revenge by assembling a team of super villains. He adopts the name of Motherfucker and Mother Russia is the best among his super villain set.

The film is just a crap sequel to the original one. Jeff Wadlow missed the point in a big way by interpreting that the first one was all about violence and swearing. What made it endearing was the Kick-Ass storyline with the Big Daddy-Hit Girl providing the unexpected excitement in small doses. The whole Hit-Girl having teenage trouble plot was cringe inducing.

The film is watchable because of the stunts in it and some few and far between laughs but on the whole it was a film that needn't be made.

Rating: 2/5
