Film Review - Kick-Ass 2

KICK-ASS 2 Jim Carrey

This review contains strong language.

I was no fan of 2010’s “Kick-Ass,” though I was mildly beguiled by the feature’s comic book vigor, playing directly to the core demographic with a violent, sarcastic atmosphere that divided the audience into geeks fully invested in the work and outsiders who couldn’t compute the mixed messages director Matthew Vaughn was transmitting. Despite the original film’s inability to attract much attention at the box office, a small profit has triggered a sequel, once again adapting a comic book series by Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr. Vaughn’s stepped down, taking a producing role, and the insider shine has been scraped off, reducing “Kick-Ass 2” to a glorified DTV sequel that’s determined to outgun, out-slice, and out-diarrhea its precursor. It’s a vicious, ugly, unfunny picture, and one that’s lacking the millimeter of polish Vaughn rubbed into the first movie. Read the rest at
