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

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.

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)

big fan of number one...this one a bit tortured and I can do without all the cop killing thanks. A bit turned off, but I went home and watched one again on my XPS and enjoyed it all over again. Watch one again for fun and skip two.

Sorry, but the personalized viscera goes too far too often and the portrayal of addiction to violence is none other than the promises made to youth by terrorist training camps worldwide. Just change the language and the costume. NOT ENTERTAINMENT. Scary. We have a choice about our future and in a Nation that is choosing to be polarized on life-and-death issues like cutting a government check for elders with no other option, a film like this is like pouring gasoline on all those gun sales. Since this film does NOTHING to reflect on that, and will, inevitably, over time (DVD, etc) be seen by a whole generation of teens and tween makes these thoughts that much more relevant to the question of future.
I said So-So because it might be good for others who do think to check it out...FYI
