Did You Know?


In the wake of the Newtown Elementary School shooting in 2012, Jim Carrey refused to take part in any promotion campaigns for this film, because he felt he could no longer support its violent content. Carrey is known for his personal distaste for guns and gun violence, not unlike his character in the movie (the only gun the Colonel handles in the film is unloaded). See more »

Great film except not as great as its predecessor
16 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Kick-Ass 2 was definitely a film for the fans, if you aren't familiar with the Kick-Ass series then this movie wouldn't be for you. Having said that I am a fan of the comics and this movie was awesome. The fight scenes were crazy and Hit-Girl always runs the show. I hate that the critic scores are low but I honestly kind of figured they would be and I see why they made it so low, to a film's core this film wouldn't be looked at as a masterpiece, and they couldn't exactly retain the same shock factor the first one had because Hit-Girl was only 11 or 12 years old in it. But all things aside this was a pretty entertaining film and I think most people would really enjoy it.
