Kick ***2 reminds us of the sophomore slump musicians experience. They put out that first great album that you can't stop playing then that second album comes along and you feel like it was rushed and of less quality than the first. Kick ***2 had that feeling in some regards. There was more action than the first and more comedy but it left me feeling like I wanted more. I'd still say go see it, but I just don't want you to get your hopes up too high.

I loved the movie. I've seen it twice already. However, if you don't like language or a few gory parts in movies, then this probably isn't for you. Like I said in my title, if the first one caught your eye, then this one will surpass it.

As much as I enjoyed Kick A$$ 2, I couldn't help but think that Matt Vaughn's absence from the director's chair had a definite impact. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed Kick A$$ 2 from beginning to end, but it felt like some of the magic from the original just wasn't there. Also, I did not appreciate the way that the filmmakers dialed back the violence from the comic book; although they went with most of the major points in the book, there were some things that they definitely backed away from. If anyone has read the book, he or she will know what I'm talking about, and it can be debated whether or not this omission was for the better or the worse (Sheesh, if they had followed everything in the comic book, it would have been one of the most violent movies ever made! I don't think that they would have been able to get an "R" rating!). I thought that Jim Carrey did a terrific job in his role, and why he would back away from it after fininshing filming it is a mystery. Overall, "B".

Some of the heroes were very stupid, but the movie overall was good. The acting from some of the characters like mother russia sucked. The movie struggled between funny and serious and went back and forth a little too much, but there were some great fight scenes, some really funny parts and it keeps you entertained. I think if it weren't for mother russia and a few other stupid characters, the movie would be much better.

I found it was good and entertaining. Don't go to it thinking it'll be like the first the first one and you'll enjoy it.
Just go and to be entertained and you'll enjoy the wise cracks, humor and violence.
