Following Kick-Ass' heroics, other citizens are inspired to become masked crusaders. But Red Mist leads his own group of evil supervillains to get revenge, kill Kick-Ass and destroy everything he stands for.
A shy student trying to reach his family in Ohio, a gun-toting tough guy trying to find the last Twinkie, and a pair of sisters trying to get to an amusement park join forces to travel across a zombie-filled America.
A man decides to turn his moribund life around by winning back his ex-girlfriend, reconciling his relationship with his mother, and dealing with an entire community that has returned from the dead to eat the living.
Three buddies wake up from a bachelor party in Las Vegas, with no memory of the previous night and the bachelor missing. They make their way around the city in order to find their friend before his wedding.
After Kick-Ass' insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes, our hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist -- reborn as The Mother F%&*^r -- only the blade-wielding Hit Girl can prevent their annihilation. When we last saw junior assassin Hit Girl and young vigilante Kick-Ass, they were trying to live as normal teenagers Mindy and Dave. With graduation looming and uncertain what to do, Dave decides to start the world's first superhero team with Mindy. Unfortunately, when Mindy is busted for sneaking out as Hit Girl, she's forced to retire-leaving her to navigate the terrifying world of high-school mean girls on her own. With no one left to turn to, Dave joins forces with Justice Forever, run by a born-again ex-mobster named Colonel Stars and Stripes. Just as they start to make a real difference on the streets, the world's first super villain, The Mother F%&*^r, assembles his ... Written by
Let me start off by saying it doesn't deserve a 1, but i have to do what i can to balance out this undeserved rating. did we all forget how awesome the first one was? kick-ass 2 doesn't even come close. the entire film is one giant, ridiculous, cheese ball.
the terrible one liners, the petty high school drama, the cheesy writing and plot elements which at times were just plain embarrassing to watch. not to mention how they managed to ruin hit girls character/essence with the sudden need to "fit in" with the high school crowd.
im sorry but the "real" hit girl, a highly trained killer since the age of 5, wouldn't give a flying f*** about fitting in with a crowd of fake, self absorbed teenagers. and while we are on that note, i just want to say that i absolutely refuse to believe kids today actually act the way they did in this film.
all of those great elements from the original are gone. when kickass stuck up for the guy getting jumped in front of the diner. when hit girl made her first appearance in razuls apartment and flawlessly butchered everyone in the room. when big daddy cleared out the warehouse full of goons in such amazing style that it gave me the chills. when hit girl showed up during the unveiling of kickass and murdered everyone in an awesome display of flashing lights while big daddy burned alive.
all of those feelings, all of that greatness, is just nonexistent in the sequel.
the one good thing kick-ass 2 had going for it self was "colonel stars and stripes". as usual jim carrey did an awesome job with his character and he was the only one i had an actual connection with.
i hear kickass will be a trilogy, that there will be one more to wrap up the series. i expect the third to be even worse, as is the norm with most trilogys that start off great then take a turn for the worst.
but i will still hope, until the day it is here, that they return to the originality and sheer awesomeness that was the first kick-ass. we will just have to wait and see...
