Kick-***2 is great sequel to an amazing movie! If you really like the first one definitely check this sequel out, it's packed with awesome action, hilarious humor, over-the-top violence with a satisfying story. (If you plan to see the movie, heads up, wait till the end of the credits for an extra scene) :D

I'm not really sure why this movie got so many bad reviews, I felt like it fairly lived up to the original and was extremely entertaining. The only thing to really complain about is the shaky cam in some of the fight scenes, but other than that the movie was very good!

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.

While Kick-***2 doesn't improve on the first one, it manages to replicate the bloodbath. The body count is high and the soul searching for Kick-***and Hit Girl is rather formulaic. The villains are the weakest links in this movie, they are not as dark, just way more crazy. The buildup to the final confrontation is better than the actual fight. So the movie falters in the end, and leave the audience with a muddled message about being a superhero.

Unlike the first Kick-***movie, I would have to say this is not in any way kid friendly. With that being said it was a great follow-up! Nothing at all what I was expecting. Great action and keeps the action moving throughout.
