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: 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.
Excerpt: Kick-Ass was one of my favorite films of 2010. It had good characters, an interesting storyline, and some excellent action sequences punctuated by perfect musical accompaniment. The plot of the sequel is a straightforward bad guy's son tries to take revenge on hero storyline. Where this sequel could have excelled was in introducing the son's growing group of super-villains.
