This movie was amazing. It starts right off with excitement and laughs. You get the bloody fights scenes, which are always best when approached with a somewhat comedic air (15 year old Hit girl "kill(s) a man with his own finger): brilliant!! What makes the movie great is that it has a great blend of violence and emotion. My husband admitted to me that he cried a few times - don't tell him I said that!
Bottom line: Hit Girl and Kick ***are awesome. Blood, fun, and emotion... well rounded and well written!

KICK-***was a surprisingly good movie that both my wife and I enjoyed so we both wanted to see Kick-***2. 2 was a good movie with all the hyper-violence of the first but with little of the surprises that made the first one so good. I can suspend belief as long as the scenes are consistent with the story line and premise of the movie. The final battle scene really was a bit of a stretch in that regard. The major issue that I had with the movie was that it was a bit slow between the action with little of the comedy of the first. The movie is worth seeing but just don't expect too much.

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. :)

Those that say Kick-***2 is better than the first one are crazy. The dynamic between the Big Daddy and his daughter - (pre-teen) Hit-Girl cannot be replaced here. BUT kick-***2 is solid. Go see it. (note-The Original Kick-***Was A Masterpiece)

Takes place several years after Kick Ass, Mindy is learning to be a regular teenager the hard way but wants to put Hit Girl behind. Kick-***misses his old life and joins a strange group of superhero wanna-bes. Red Mist hasn't forgotten his father's death and trying to create his own group of anti-superheros. Most of movie is Kick-***and Hit-Girl trying to find out what they want to be, regular kids with regular problems, or resume their own secret identies. Confusing message and their is some murder of good guys as well as teenage cruelty in the regular world. Glad I saw it, but it was far less entertaining and well-written that the original 3 years ago. Script could have used some work.
