Chris D’Amico/The Motherf%&*^r: “A world full of superheroes… wait till they get a load of me. I’m gonna make Kick-Ass pay for what they did to my dad!”

 

A sequel to the highly successful Kick-Ass movie in 2010, Kick-Ass 2 features several returning actors from the original film reprising their roles. The film was released in August 16, 2013 in the US, while it was released 2 days earlier, August 14, in the UK. The movie received mixed reactions from critics.

Plot: The movie picks up after Dave Lizewski (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) retires from being Kick-Ass but because he was bored began training again with Mindy Macready (Chloe Grace Moretz) aka Hit-Girl. Chris D’Amico (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), after his father’s death and after accidentally killing his mother, takes over his father’s criminal empire and dons an S&M outfit to become supervillain The Motherfucker.

While Dave resumed his superhero role as Kick-Ass and joined the Justice Forever team headed by Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), Mindy gets busted by her guardian and was forced to give up her cape and live life as an ordinary high school student, but eventually makes a comeback. Meanwhile, The Motherfucker started his own team of villains bent on taking revenge on Kick-Ass.

The Motherfucker and Kick-Ass battle with the former losing it out to the superhero. As he was about to drop from the building, Kick-Ass extends a hand, but The Motherfucker opted to fall into his demise.

The first installment to this movie was hugely successful that it had a huge cult following.  Kick-Ass 2 takes on the same formula of violence, extremely foul language, and sexual innuendos that go beyond your usual superhero movie, but where the first movie was fun and witty, Kick-Ass 2 takes on a more conventional approach to the storyline.

Of course, the movie thrives on comedic lines but it also has its share of dramas. For its modest budget for a superhero movie, the action scenes were decent although there may be some shot using green screen backdrops.

The main characters are holding up well in their roles with some standout moments and some interesting character arcs. Now grown up, Chloe Moretz fits into the kick ass, cursing Hit-Girl and the more ordinary high school student Mindy. Christopher Mintz-Plasse is a great villain for this comedy film. Kick-Ass 2 also has a nice set of supporting casts to boot.

All in all, Kick-Ass 2 was not as awesome as the first movie, but it delivers. It’s good in that it has all the signature elements of the Kick-Ass movie series, but it isn’t as cutting edge as the first one. But this movie is sure to satisfy hardcore fans of the first film!
