Great Sequel , Bring on no.3,
This review is from: Kick-Ass 2 - Limited Edition Steelbook [Blu-ray]  [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
I loved the first Kick-Ass, it was funny, bloody and cutting edge. Some of the one liners were hilarious and it had a great balance between story, characters, action, humour and a bit of drama too. It would be tough, almost impossible to beat.
The sequel I can honestly say is almost as good, it's not exactly the same mixture as the first but has to be judged on it's own merit and had to be different. To summarize everyone in the cinema who saw this came out laughing and talking about it, a very rare event really. So, not to ruin the story, but this continues where Kick-Ass left off and the first thing you notice is there less adult humour, it becomes more slapstick overall, but in as good way. The story is not as fluid and well paced but it bring alot more laughs and take itself alot less seriously. The young villain is a million times better in this than the first, and really makes the role especially when they are going through his mums things (You'll know). Overall a great film, if you like a laugh and can put up with gore and stupid comic material you will be laughing like hell at some of the scenes, it's just out there ! Jim Carrey is also in it, but really should have had a bigger part as he was great, and the two core characters are on top form.
I am looking forward to the third, unsure if/when it will be out ..and remember, you should always stay until the end of the credits :-)
