Re: Kick-Ass 2 -Movie Discussion, News, Interviews, Pics. ect.

I saw it last night. Went in with low expectations, in light of the reviews. However, I did enjoy the movie. It wasn't as good as the first one but wasn't the mess I'd feared. The script was wittier than I'd been led to believe and the action scenes were excellent.

I was surprised by the escalation of the violence but from reading this thread, I see that this came from the comic (the first one was pretty violent too, come to think of it).

I'd give it 7/10.

I think the problem with Kick Ass 2 compared to the first movie is that we spend too much time watching the characters fail and fail again and be powerless and restricted. "I promised I wouldn't be a superhero anymore!" is silly in a movie about superheroes. I still enjoyed the movie but it is a little hard to love a movie in which the heroes repeatedly fall on their faces and the bad guy does way cooler stuff.

As much as I like both movies, I have never for one moment regarded Red Mist/McLovin/Chris D'Amico/the M.F. to be remotely cool for even one moment. Just when I thought we were....

SPOILER ALERT BELOW







.........finally rid of him, they bring him back for cinema's worst all-time end-credits cookie with a tenth-rate joke stolen from Jerry O'Connell in the PIRANHA threemake.

Re: Kick-Ass 2 -Movie Discussion, News, Interviews, Pics. ect.

I saw this last week and throughly enjoyed it myself. Sure its not as good as the first but you can say that for a heck of a lot of sequels. And sure its not as violent as the comic but I suppose I was hardly surprised they didn't show the Motherfucker gunning down a bunch of little kids.
Like the first one Hit-Girl stole the show, I just wish it'd been made a year or two earlier as it does work better when she's actually a little girl rather than a teenager. But hey, she still had one of the greatest lines in any film ever IMO

I think I must have laughed till the end of the movie at that bit.

That's pretty accurate of the comic too though, it's like the Empire Strikes Back of the Kick-Ass universe. There are no real victories for the good guys, even when they triumph at the end it's still at a huge cost (and they changed the ending of the comic too, so it would have been more of a downer an ending).

I was expecting the movie to be terrible after reading the reviews, but I really enjoyed it aside from the high school drama stuff with Hit Girl. The score is somehow even better than the first film.
