Kick-Ass 2

7

I completely forgot to review this when I posted the comic, so let’s see what I remember.

It felt like it was retreading a lot of what they did in the original. There’s even a “Banana Splits”-esque fight scene. That might have been good – I did love that scene in the original – but it took me out of the film because I was thinking about how much more I liked Hit Girl’s bit. Really, my favorite part of the movie was the new lady villain Mother Russia.

The message is a bit confused, but these are characters who want to wear costumes and beat people up. You can’t really expect them to come to the most peaceful conclusion about heroism. It tries, though, and that’s worth something. It has most of the heart and humor of the first movie.
