Summary: Will give you your fill of action - but whereas the original film struck a good balance between the action and more light-hearted scenes - this one is all business. Even the scenes with Chloë Grace Moretz trying to pass as a "normal" high school freshman have an edge to them. That being said, it was still good to see these characters again, and the newcomers (Including Jim Carrey, Donald Faison and Lindy Booth) were welcome as well.
Summary: Oh dear, i think i must face up to the inevitable i am getting old, i feel this film is a bit like Marks and Spencer's clothes, not sure who their target market is. The film on one hand is very childish but then along comes more adult content, i admit i did fall asleep for a short period woke in time to see Jim Carey meet his maker,result.
Summary: Having not read the original comics (don't rate Millar's writing with his immature, attention grabbing use of swearing, at all) I must admit to enjoying the first film qiute a lot, for many reasons. However, all the positives from the first are ignored in this sequel with dull set pieces, awful acting (apart from the under-used Jim Carrey) and a plot held together with spit and sawdust.
Summary: Kickass is an amazing work of cult cinema. The latex heroes and heroins of Kickass are near normal folk -no bat, cat or spider powers, just well woven characters that can get seriously hurt as well as dish out gory violence. We all stayed up way past our bed time to watch off Kickass 2. Always a sign of a great film.
Summary: There is nothing really that wrong with this sequel if you just go into it knowing its not as good as the original. This film is a little bit to graphic in its use of violence at times which is well documented by non other than jim carrey himself as after seeing how violent the film is and some real life events that coincided with the release of the film felt he could not help promote it because he could not condone the violence.
Summary: Okay, I’ll start by confessing that I’m possibly the ONLY person in the world who HATED Kick A$$ (1). I really don’t know why I bothered to watch the sequel, but, for some reason, I’m really glad I did. It just seemed to be everything that the first one wasn’t. I found it cleverer, funnier, more action-packed and more (and I think this is the word I’m looking for) ‘real’ than the original.
Summary: Sticks close to the graphic novel but doesn't quite have the charm of the first film. Jim Carrey is almost unrecognisable but opens a new option for future badass roles. Chloe has a difficult task of handling tweenie problems but Aaron doesn't quite fill the role. Took a while to really get going but watchable.
