Kick Ass 2 Movie and Review

Kick Ass 2 movie extended trailor

Kick-Ass, Hit Girl and Red Mist return for the follow-up to 2010’s irreverent global hit: Kick-Ass 2. After Kick-Ass’ (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), our hero joins them on patrol.  When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), only the blade-wielding Hit Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) can prevent their annihilation. KICK-ASS 2 is in Cinemas August 22.

I just got home from the premiere of the Kick Ass 2 movie in Brisbane City. I would like to send a big thank you to NBC Universal Pictures for the premiere tickets for myself and the majority of our staff members.

I really enjoyed Kick Ass 2. It has great action sequences, involving and often funny drama and comedy scenes and It had a well scripted story line too. I found myself laughing out loud or going Ahhhh!!! at least four times, which is not something I do often when visiting the cinema.
The action sequences were all very well directed. The gore factor was not over the top, but they didn't hold back either which I found was very refreshing compared to many movies which seem to dumb down their violence to the point it looks fake. This movie felt very real and believable in most of the scenes which just added to the WOW factor.
The superheroes were all interesting and even quite funny. The super villains were actually very interesting and creative, especially when it came to their names. I personally found the 'Mother Russia' character to be EXTRA KICK ASS!! and without spoiling too much. The scene with her and the police was very entertaining with awesome special effects.
Overall a thoroughly enjoyable movie for adults who like their action movies. As a sequel I believe it excelled in many ways. In fact I think I enjoyed it as much if not more than the original Kick Ass movie. Highly recommended.

I give it 4 1/2 out of 5 stars.
