There wasn't much to expect from Kick-***2. The first movie was funny, light hearted, and entertaining in a comic book kind of way. Pretty much what I'd expect from a comic book type movie.
This sequel strayed so far off that mark into the dark and gory category, that I checked my phone part way through the movie to see if it had been directed by Qentin Tarantino (no offense to Mr. Tarantino, of course).
The pinnacle of the gore and darkness of this movie was reached about 2/3 of the way through when the super villian comes to terrorize Kick Ass' girlfriend. The scene took its first very dark turn when The ************ (an awful name for a super villian) decided that raping the girl was how he would send a message. Ultimately he was thwarted by erectile dysfunction, however demonstrating the serious intent to inflict that on someone was definitely not ok, regardless of his inability to follow through.

Typical teenage comic book characters who are oddly cast as gangbanger-mentality vigilantes in disguise, who engage in one gratuitously bloody fight after another. Senseless, gory violence is the sole plot of this inane trash, which in the end delivers nothing more than a heavy handed dose of violence-based role modeling for the intended teen audience to act-out on.

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.

Kick-***2 was definitely not a let down. Meeting Mother Russia for the first time made me very scared for Hit Girl. Go see it and you'll know what I'm talking about. :)

I always thought of sequels as something that would never be good as the first one ever did, Kick-***2 proved me wrong. So glad I went to see it. Kick-***2 is just as amazing as Kick-***1, if not better!
