Kick Ass 2


Director: Jeff Wadlow
Writers: Jeff Wadlow (screenplay)
Stars: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloë Grace Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse




The costumed high-school hero Kick-Ass joins with a group of normal citizens who have been inspired to fight crime in costume. Meanwhile, the Red Mist plots an act of revenge that will affect everyone Kick-Ass knows.


Creating a solid superhero sequel is hard to do, especially when the first movie had an unrelentingly unique point of view. “Kick-Ass” surprised audiences in 2010 with its harsh language and even harsher violence, earning every bit of its hard-R rating. But the film also surprised hardcore comic book fans by accurately bringing creators Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.’s darkly comedic tale of a powerless teenage hero to life. Every bit of the blood and bruises onscreen came from the comic.
"Not only has he managed to bring his creations to the big screen, the Scottish writer has won over Hollywood in the process."

"The movie takes place four years after the end of the last one. Big Daddy is dead, Kick Ass is no longer wearing the mask, and Hit Girl is hiding from the mean girls in high school by ditching to go to the gym every day."
"The co-creator of the indie superhero franchise says that movies are escapism from real life tragedies, but even so, his movie shows the effect of violence on its characters."

Kick-Ass creator Mark Millar has been using the buzz-phrase “violence with consequence,” and he’s right – the massive increase in violence is here, but it also has real consequence, with everything from death to dismemberment to police action that leads to horrible consequences for the heroes.

So yes, this movie is violent – very violent – but it also happens to be very good, very fun, and ramps up the personal drama alongside the action. Oh, and Chloë Grace Moretz is just such a damn superstar, you can’t help but love every second she’s on the screen
