Kick-***2 was made for a mere $28 million, which seems crazy in today's CGI filled blockbuster era. For what they had, they did a fine job. The movie is entertaining, even if there are some plot errors and major departures from the source material.

Overall, good followup to the first film. The downside, without ruining the movie, is that HitGirl could have had a better purpose in this installment of the franchise.

Loved the first movie, this one was awful. From the rape scene to the pictures of his dad's murder and the never ending graphic violence.....
Stay away from this one if you're not into the whole sado/masochist biz.

I liked the route this went and the dark humor was pretty fun to keep along with. It's was cool to see certain actors in a different light as well.

Unnecessary sequel is disappointing even if you go in with very low expectations, like I did. Chloë Grace Moretz provides nearly all of the film's entertainment value as Mindy and her super-hero alter ego Hit Girl. She's an island of quality in the vast sea of crap that Is Kick ***2--unfortunately she's stuck in a third rate Mean Girls rip-off for much of the film's running time. Still, she manages to make the best of the bad material. The same can't be said for anyone else. The violence is bizarrely toothless--during the film's most violent sequence a villain named Mother Russia dispatches a half dozen cops single-handedly, including, in one case, by sending a running lawnmower through the windshield into the front seat of their squad car--but it feels like you're already watching the version that's been edited for basic cable viewing on USA. If I had more characters I could go on and on about the things that don't work about this one-it's depressingly mediocre.
