Kick-Ass 2

I was really excited to see this movie. The first movie was awesome. The violence, the language and the amazing performance from Chloe Grace-Moretz. So needless to say I was more excited to see the sequel.

Kick-Ass 2 picks up almost right where the first movie left off. "Kick Ass" (Aaron Johnson) is getting trained by "Hit Girl" (Chloe Grace-Moretz) and are protecting the city from scum. All while the new super villain, "The MotherF*****", is out to extract revenge for "Kick Ass" killing his father. The plot is simple so it makes for easy watching. The extra fun thing about this movie is the fact that "Kick Ass" has to join other super heroes due to the fact that "Hit Girl" made a promise to her guardian. She promised that she wouldn't be "Hit Girl" anymore. She struggles with herself and has a constant battle between being a super hero, trying not to be a super hero and discovering new things about being a 15 year old girl. She still kills it in this movie. The stuff that comes out of her mouth is filthy but awesome. She is so good in this movie. So like I said, that leaves "Kick Ass" joining up with other super heroes and they all protect the city. Enter Jim Carrey. Carrey plays "Colonel Stars & Stripes". He is a bad ass who hates crime and those who break the law. His on screen time is short but awesome.

The whole movie is fun and entertaining. Right up to the end when you have approx. 50 super heroes in a rumble with approx. 50 super villains. Awesome, awesome, awesome. Make sure you watch the first movie before you watch this movie. You don't necessarily have to, but it makes for a better movie. actually, now that I think about it, sometimes when you watch a sequel first, it makes the first movie really neat cause you get to how everything came together. You can do either with this movie. So I would definitely recommend this movie. The first Kick-Ass is better than this one but the sequel is still awesome. So check it out. It kicks ass! (see what I did there?) Yes indeed.
