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.
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
In the comic, it is implied that the character of Colonel Stars (Colonel Stars and Stripes in the movie) had terminal cancer and may not have had long to live which explained why he renounced his former life as a mob enforcer, became a Born Again Christian and became a Superhero. However this is never confirmed. The movie omits this point. See more »
Outside the high school at the beginning of the movie, Dave runs up to Mindy and says, "Hey," clearly without breathing heavily. Dave was clearly catching his breath after he stopped running. See more »
Reading the reviews of this only furthers my belief that mainstream critics don't know what they're talking about half of the time. On rotten tomatoes this gets around 30% whereas the one direction movie gets nearly a 70%?! my point exactly. Kick Ass 2 is action packed and hilarious and it's just as good as the first if not better.
It's a natural progression in terms of story, characters. Hit-Girl and Kick Ass are back and better than before with more outrageous wannabe superheroes, and their up against a new gang of badder super villains.If your like me and enjoy R rated superhero/comic book movies you'll enjoy this as this isn't your average superhero movie for the kids that's all about the CGI and a fluffy PG rating, its a more bloody superhero movie that's grounded in reality not fantasy.
Overall,it was a good movie don't listen to the critics. Just like the first set the stage for a part 2, this one sets it up for a 3rd and I can't wait for Kick Ass 3 !!
