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.

one of the most exploitative films ever ... and a rising star
First, let's do the real backstory, that is, the real world backstory. KA1 was a pretty interesting movie, with some nice ideas, some nice execution, and a decent plot arc. Arguably, the best thing in KA1 was Chloë Grace Moretz, who stole entire scenes from more seasoned actors with an impish grin and comic timing that Jack Benny would have envied. Ironically, since both KA1 and KA2 are about evil, you need to understand that the real evil happened after KA1 was made, when a new production team got hold of the rights to the sequel. Now, there are bad sequels and there are worse sequels, but the baddest of them all is a sequel that, from the getgo, seeks to exploit the vulnerabilities of its audience. And that's what we have here. Essentially a moronic story with episodes of violence bordering on the pornographic, interspaced with interesting (albeit undeveloped) secondary arcs that riff off, for example, MEAN GIRLS. To call this movie an abomination is unfair to real abominations. Through it all, however, Chloë Grace Moretz shines in her reprise of an older more mature Hit Girl, pretty much stealing every scene she is in - again. She is photogenic, athletic, charismatic, and knows how to deliver dialogue. We'll be seeing more of her.
