Kick-Ass 2

Sound & Vision Magazine
25 June 2014
  • Excerpt: Absent here is the original movie’s endearing blend of fun and intensity born of giddily ample profanity and graphic violence. The story is darker now, sure, but also surprisingly derivative of teen flicks ranging from Ferris Bueller to Mean Girls—a strange and unsuccessful fit.

Kick-Ass 2

DVD Talk

  • Excerpt: I really didn't expect much out of the first Kick-Ass . Then again, I had no idea this film was based on a graphic novel, so all I had to go on was a trailer and the inherent promise that plenty of ass would indeed be kicked. I was mildly interested at the prospect of watching 'real' kids moonlight as superheroes in the 'real' world, but was that enough of a selling point? I wasn't so sure.

Kick-Ass 2

High-Def Digest
15 December 2013
  • Conclusion: Picking up where the last film left off, Jeff Wadlow writes and directs 'Kick-Ass 2' with the same enthusiasm, visual gusto, and penchant for wild ultra-violence as its predecessor, but the film lacks a truly engaging story. With the same cast returning, plus the addition of Jim Carrey, the follow-up is entertaining enough, with several humorous and action-packed moments, but there's a weird disconnect between the characters and the violent repercussions of their masked...

Kick-Ass 2

Slant Magazine
6 November 2013
  • Excerpt: Kick-Ass 2 doubles down on the love-hate relationship with ultra-violence that typified its predecessor, but David Cronenberg's A History of Violence this is not. Neither was Kick-Ass , for that matter, but the earlier film's director, Matthew Vaughn, at least found a small spot of fertile narrative ground to explore the superhero fantasy as an expressive, blood-bathed escape from the uniformity and humiliations of pubescence and high school.

  • Summary: In Kick-Ass 2 heeft de “superheld” (lees: gewone jongen met masker) Kick-Ass zich aangesloten bij een groepje gelijksoortige figuren. Het is echter maar de vraag of dit groepje het op kan nemen tegen de op wraak beluste The Motherfucker. Ze zouden de hulp van Hit-Girl goed kunnen gebruiken, maar die heeft het te druk met tienerproblemen. Kick-Ass 2 is het vervolg op de originele en succesvolle comicverfilming uit 2010.

  • Conclusion: Kick-Ass kertoi supersankaritarinaa uudessa valossa ja keräsi pisteitä omaperäisellä reippaalla otteellaan. Kokonaisuus oli kuitenkin pienoisessa epätasapainossa ja loppua kohden elokuva sortui tyypillisiin toimintaratkaisuihin unohtaen oman erikoisuutensa. Jatko-osalta ei siis kauheita uskaltanut odottaa, mutta ohjaajan vaihdos teki elokuvasarjalle hyvää ja lopputulos on positiivisesti yllättävä.

  • Summary: Kick Ass 2 er en superfed fortsættelse af den sindssyge 1'er. Der er noget helt unikt over disse superhelte og deres amatøragtive måde at være professionelle på.

  • Excerpt: Som det kan bli. Här sitter man, skolad i Buñuel, Bergman, De Sica, Dreyer, Kubrick och Kurosawa, och ser fram emot ”Kick-Ass 2”. Hur gick det till? Jo, ”Kick-Ass” (2010) var serietidningsaction av rejält hip art. Titelfigur är den försynte tonåringen Dave som bekämpar brott i hemgjord superhjältedräkt. Välbehövlig hjälp får han av en tuff ex-snut med stenhård liten tös, som under sina alias Big Daddy och Hit-Girl har kultiverat idén till perfektion.
