Unlike #1, the second movie deserved the rated R

I watched kick ass one with my kids. While number one had some adult content it was no worse than what they are exposed to daily in middle school. #2 had adult content that led to a bit of embarrassment. I was very uncomfortable explains anal beads to an inquisitive 12 year old girl

Mmm..

I read a nice handful of reviews before watching the movie, and some of them aren't wrong. Less gore, less action, more fish-out-of-water cliches, and some unneeded high school drama aspects. It's not as good as the first movie.

Everything from the first movie is toned down in this one with plenty of cliches added to it. Me? I enjoyed it. It isn't a shining star of a movie, but I can still say it's not a complete waste of time.

Enormously violent and occasionally funny sequel to the first film!
Verified purchase
Sequels are rarely as good as the original, but this one comes pretty close. Aaron Taylor-Johnson is back as a high school nerd named Dave Lizewski, who created his own superhero identity named "Kick Ass." More importantly, Chloë Grace Moretz returns as high school freshman Mindy Macready, whose secret superhero-identity is the incredibly dangerous "Hit Girl," who works with "Kick Ass" to take down criminals. That is, until her guardian (Morris Chestnut) demands that she become a full-time high school student, at which point Lizewski puts together a new crime-fighting team that includes Jim Carrey as "Colonel Stars and Stripes." Christopher Mintz-Plasse is also back as spoiled super-rich kid Chris D'Amico, who wants to be a supervillain with his own deadly crew of bad guys. When "Hit Girl" is on screen, this one is great, but the ever-increasing amounts of extreme violence eventually gets kind of boring. Still an overall enjoyable film.

When I saw the poop scene, I nearly threw the DVD in the trash.

I liked the original Kick Ass movie a lot. Sure, the protagonist and his friends are juvenile, but Hit Girl and Big Daddy are awesome, and the movie stuck pretty close to realism and most of the over-the-top moments were believable in the context of the movie.

In this sequel, well, we have high school drama, reality-breaking school bullies, a lower level of puerile, and, well, they kicked the wrong part of the original movie "up to eleven." Not only do we have wannabe villains acting like crazed and unrestrained two-dimensional gloating psychopaths (which makes sense), we have typical high schoolers doing the same? My suspension of disbelief is strained at that point, and then completely gets broken when, well, the response to bullying defies character, consideration of consequences, and scientific-biologic law. (Seriously, unless everyone involved in that scene were ALREADY in a bad way, that scene could not have happened.)

The only thing that prevented me rating this movie even lower was, well, even though it was a poor sequel it was still a sequel that reminded me of the original. And Hit Girl is still fun to watch as she kicks ass.

Crazy action
Verified purchase
Ridiculous. Exciting. Engrossing. Conflicted characters. Situational stressors: high school, life, damaged families, bad guys.
Action scenes are great fun -- everything you want in a comic book except the sound effect balloons like BAM and POW.
There are plenty of scenes with fun out-takes that pepper YouTube, such as the cheerleader tryout where Hit Girl destroys four attackers. It's a perfect example of how Kick-Ass 2 leavens the action with some zany combat in a lighthearted setting.
Few people read the closing credits but do skim to the end for a 15-second bonus.

Violent? Try Just Plain Viscous
Verified purchase
The first movie was a lot of fun with some gore. This POC... if Carrey were serious about not promoting violence he would have had his name removed from the cast rather than just refuse to promote it. After this, it's clear to see why there was never a KA3. Talk about ugly.

Definitely a Kick-Ass Sequel!
Verified purchase
Great follow up to the fantastic original. Left me dying to see a third Kick-Ass movie. The casting was great, Kick-Ass and Hit Girl were even more bad ass in the sequel. Most negative reviews from fans was that it wasn't the same as the comic. I'm a huge comic book fan (have a collection of 5,000 plus) and I understand when comic book movies aren't the same as the comics.

The only three movies that come to mind that were really adhere to the source material were Sin City, 300 and Watchmen (loved all three). Unfortunately some things don't translate well to the screen or just can't get past a PG-13 rating (just make it R!!!!) or even an R rating.

One particular scene from the the Kick-Ass 2 comics would've never secured an R rating (MPAA even preemptively warned so). Not giving any spoilers but if you've read the Kick-Ass 2 comics, you know what scene I'm talking about.

Sticking to Kick-Ass 2, actors and actresses simply age. Mindy can't stay a little girl like in the comics. That drew criticism, especially at the end, which deviated from the comics as well. I loved Watchmen, however it unjustly was subjugated to a lot of fanboy backlash because it was almost panel-to-panel the same, minus what the attack was at the end that still spurred the exact same end result.

Movie was excellent, 'nuff said.
