Kick Ass 2 Review: This is how you do a sequel – Kick Ass 2 is more uncompromising, more cut-throat and more serious in terms of the consequences that Dave has to face with every action he takes in his fight against The Mother F*cker and his evil forces. The whole plot of the movie shows how the three main characters have broken away from their original lifestyles all because of the events of the first film. Dave is taking his superhero lifestyle further, Mindy is trying to give it up, and Chris (MP) gives an explosive performance as Frank Damico’s son who is now going slowly insane following the death of his father.
Hit Girl’s conflicting identity was a fantastic nod to the superhero genre – as the first sequel of any superhero movie always involves this storyline one way or another. We really see Mindy’s maturity in this film, as she comes to terms with who she really is and tries to fit in to a normal environment in high school. The scenes involving Mindy and the popular girls at her school didn’t take away from the experience whatsoever – I was initially worried that there was going to be gratuitous amours of “Mean Girls” chick flick type scenes – but the writers and the directors of Kick-Ass 2 kept this to a minimal, and it played out very well as Chlöe Grace- Moretz displays a wonderful performance as a girl out of her natural element.
The actor who replaced Marcus did an incredible job of transferring the persona from the original actor – the same cant be said for Todd’s new actor. The old Todd we knew didn’t exist and this new persona the actor portrayed kind of sucked to be honest. All in all, the separate storyline’s of each character broke off cleanly from one another before neatly coming back together for a brutal final half of the film. Kick Ass 2 is shocking, hilarious and heart-wrenchingly gripping. So much takes place in just an hour and 45 minutes that it felt much longer, yet never once dragged.
