Kick-Ass 2 Review
Kick-Ass 2 is certainly a change of pace from the polished and dramatic Marvel movies, unfortunately though it comes over as more of a soulless version of Mystery Men (if that’s even possible) this time around.
After the first film was about the origin of the first superhero, this is about the genesis of the first supervillains. Sounds fine, right? It takes over two thirds of the film for these people to appear as the villains.
The film is filled up with “Remember what we did in the first film?” sequences and some bizarre Hit-Girl in Bring It On subplot. What charm was in the first film is lost and what flaws were there are turned up to eleven. It’s not funny, drags endlessly, is poorly cast and has the kind of irony deficiency you’d expect from a redneck. Marvel can’t come out with a new movie fast enough.
