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.

Trivia

In the movie the character Insect Man says he became a super hero because he was teased and bullied in school because he is gay. He says that today he is very proud of who he is which is why he does not wear a mask or make any attempt to conceal his identity. In the comic the character is dramatically different. At a meeting of the members of Justice Forever Insect Man claims to be a police officer who is tired of playing by the rules and wants to brutalize criminals which is why he chose to become a super hero. Also he does wear a mask and makes an effort to conceal his identity. See more »

Not Bad
15 February 2020 | by MR_HeracliusSee all my reviews

Kick Ass 2 isn't as refreshing or as original as the the first, but it still succeeds in delivering lights, entertaining action and a surprising amount of emotion.
