Wasn't the first movie but it is it's own bird.

The first film is a genre definer, this one wasn't, but it is still a good movie, a very good movie at that. It is a bit silly at times but it is a movie that can make fun of itself but in the background there is still HitGirl, the real deal and a stellar performance from Chloe Moretz in a more supporting role this time. Big thumbs up for Jim Carey's role though, very tongue in cheek but hard as nails.

Brilliant Film but JUST Falls Short Of The First One.
Verified purchase
I loved Kick-Ass 1 which I saw at the cinema 4+ times before its Blu-Ray release which I've watched countless times. Its a very unique and stylish story based on the Mark Millar Comic Book series of the same name. The second film (which this review refers to) is very fun, very cool and very much worth your time.

It only JUST falls short of the first one in brilliance because we already know these characters and its very difficult to shock you again with the same thing you've already seen. That scene in the first film where we first see Hit-Girl killing those goons in the apartment can only ever be seen for the first time once. By the second film we already know her and what she can do. The same can be said for every character we already know. Luckily the new characters get some spot light and we get to see Donald Faison as Dr.Gravity who is brilliant in every scene he's in. John Leguizamo is also great as Chris's personal aid/ bodyguard. I was also incredibly surprised by Jim Carreys character, Colonel Stars and Stripes who is a very different persona to those Jim usually plays. He does have some funny lines of course but generally he's a pretty serious guy.

People have totally slated this movie and have said things like "Its terrible compared to the first one" or "I hate what they did with it". To be honest it doesn't have the same feel as the first and I personally think that's a good thing. If it was similar people would complain that "its just a copy and paste job" etc. Long story short, people will ALWAYS find something to complain about and some people will complain due to a lack of anything better to do. Really, if you enjoyed the first one you should easily enjoy the second one. Another thing I would like to touch on is the fact that people have said "Kick-Ass 2 has toned down the violence". To an extent, I can understand what they mean but 2 cops still get murdered by a runaway lawn mower..... so you know. Also people have said that Hit-Girl has been toned down and made to be a lot more human that her character in the comic books. Let me go ahead and tell you all right now that I have read all the comics and the Hit-Girl in there is a psychopath, pure and simple. She is totally nuts and kills without a second thought. She also has the luxury of not having to grow up in the books. Hit-Girl in the movies (Chloe Moretz) has been growing up for real and this does need to be addressed in the film. The Hit-Girl in the movie is not a Psycho who was brainwashed by her father. She is a young girl who helped her daddy do what he needed to do, she has feelings and cares about people (not all people mind you lol). Look at the films and Comics as 2 separate pieces and you will enjoy them a lot more. They where designed and MEANT to be different.

In short, this is a great movie and a great comic book. Watch and read them both and enjoy their differences. The Steel Book that this Blu-Ray comes in is also awesome and well designed. The price of it keeps rising though, so grab it while you can.

'ENTERTAINING WATCH'
Verified purchase
Super non-hero 'Dave Lisewski'(Kick-Ass) has, since his earlier exploits
decided it's too dangerous out there, however close-friend 'Mindy Macready'
(Hit-Girl) despite the loss of her father 'Damon' continues her exploits.
Several new super-heroes have emerged on the streets of 'New York' inspired
by their hero 'Kick-Ass'
'Dave' decides to give it another go, 'Mindy' helps toughen-up her friend.
However when 'Mindy's' guardian discovers his 15 year old charge is skipping
schooling, he insist's that she promises to quit the 'Hit-Girl' role and
attend school.
A promise she'll find difficult to keep as 'Chris D'Aminco'/Red Mist, a
adversary from before threatens to wipe out 'Kick-Ass' and his new friends.
The rich kid, has assembled a team of thugs to do his bidding.
Follow our heroes and friends in this high-kicking and action-packed thrill
ride, the film does have much in the way of graphic violence with an adult
theme on occasions, as with the terrific first film there is also a good
measure of humour throughout.
Not perhaps the equal of the first, but worth viewing nevertheless.
GREAT-STUFF 'DON'T MISS IT' (content is advisory)
There is also over an hour of extras on board including --'Alternative opening'
'The making of Kick-Ass 2' 'Extended scenes' 'Hit-Girl attacks: creating the
van sequence' 'Big Daddy returns' 'The unshot scene' 'Feature commentary with
'Aaron Taylor-Johnson' 'Christopher Mintz-Plasse' 'Chloe' Grace Mortez' and
Writer/Director Jeff Wadlow'

Although toned down a little from the graphic novel it is based upon, I thought this was still a brilliant sequel that stays as true as it can (without making this an 18!) to the original source material. It perhaps misses something by not having Jane Goldman and Matthew Vaughan as writers and director but the new guy does a pretty decent job. It's darker than the first story but still funny in places and still very violent. They've done a great job at bringing these to the big screen, I hope they look to more of Mark Millar's stories to turn into movies.

Somebody needs their ass kicked for making this movie
Verified purchase
Loved Kick Ass but Kick Ass 2 is quite simply awful. Could not believe how bad this movie was. The Director/Writer Jeff Wadlow should take up another profession. Not even Hit Girl can save this movie. What a missed opportunity and probably the end of Kick Ass.

Don't waste your time
Verified purchase
I was excited to see this film, the first had been such a game-changer. I'd read the reviews, which weren't great, but wanted to give it a chance. There is nothing good about this film, but this could in part be down to the fact that the first film was so brilliant. This doesn't add anything worthwhile to the overall Kick Ass story, so don't give up 2 hours to this when you could be watching something else.

Good movie but please note it has no audio description track
Verified purchase
I enjoyed the movie but bought it on the basis that it has 'Audio Description' for visually impaired folk. It doesn't. I wrote to Amazon to ask them to correct this as it's not in the section that a customer can correct, but they just refunded me and it's still listed as being audio described. Hopefully someone looking for audio described movies will see this review and know this is the case.
This is different to audio commentaries just in case anyone thinks I'm losing the plot :)

Not Bad... Just not a Patch on the Original.
Verified purchase
An average sequel to the excellent original, don't get me wrong it's not a bad film but compared to the first you feel let down, if only Mathew Vaughn had stayed on as director instead of doing X-Men: First Class we might have had a decent film franchise here. A shame really as it started off so well. Only hope he does not do the same with Kingsman.
