Being a sequel Kick-Ass 2 had no chance of capturing the 'controversial' shock value of the first film and an early decimation of a group of bad guys by Hit-Girl {always a gleeful treat} might in fact lead you to think that this film was just going to be a retread of the first film's highlights. Thankfully while it is still foul-mouthed and full of over the top, choreographed violence, it's a leaner and faster paced follow up that moves the story of the main protagonists forwards in a thrilling, energised, fun ride that had me leaving the cinema full of cheer.

Continuing the theme of normal folks as superheroes, it is three years later and Kick-Ass Dave Lizewski no longer wants to fight crime alone and sets out to become part of a team. Moving at a brisk pace the action is formed around this idea while finding time to ponder on what it means to be a hero. Parallel to this is the rise of Chris d'Amico, the previous film's Red Mist, now re-christened and re-invented as super-villain The Melon Farmer and his mission to destroy Kick Ass with his own recruitment of a team of bad guys. Meanwhile Hit-Girl has the hardest job of all ....trying to fit in at school.

Various new characters are introduced; a grizzled Jim Carrey as Colonel Stars n' Stripes for the good guys and more impressively, Mother Russia for the bad guys. A brick out-house of a woman in a red bikini who would'nt look out of place in a 'proper' superhero film and could hold her own as a credible 'Bond' villain. See her wipe out squad cars full of cops single-handedly and smile.

But of course the most enjoyment in the Kick-Ass films comes from Hit-Girl.

Super non-hero 'Dave Lisewski'(Kick-Ass) has, since his earlier exploits
decided it's too dangerous out there, however close-friend 'Mindy Macready'
(Hit-Girl) despite the loss of her father 'Damon' continues her exploits.
Several new super-heroes have emerged on the streets of 'New York' inspired
by their hero 'Kick-Ass'
'Dave' decides to give it another go, 'Mindy' helps toughen-up her friend.
However when 'Mindy's' guardian discovers his 15 year old charge is skipping
schooling, he insist's that she promises to quit the 'Hit-Girl' role and
attend school.
A promise she'll find difficult to keep as 'Chris D'Aminco'/Red Mist, a
adversary from before threatens to wipe out 'Kick-Ass' and his new friends.
The rich kid, has assembled a team of thugs to do his bidding.
Follow our heroes and friends in this high-kicking and action-packed thrill
ride, the film does have much in the way of graphic violence with an adult
theme on occasions, as with the terrific first film there is also a good
measure of humour throughout.
Not perhaps the equal of the first, but worth viewing nevertheless.
GREAT-STUFF 'DON'T MISS IT' (content is advisory)
There is also over an hour of extras on board including --'Alternative opening'
'The making of Kick-Ass 2' 'Extended scenes' 'Hit-Girl attacks: creating the
van sequence' 'Big Daddy returns' 'The unshot scene' 'Feature commentary with

Movie sequel to Kick-Ass [DVD] which is all about a nerd who tries to become a costumed crimefighter. That movie was an adaptation of a comic, and this movie is an adaptation of Kick Ass 2 and Kick-Ass: Hit-Girl. Which are both sequels to the original comic.

This possibly might work as a jumping on point if you haven't seen the first film, but you are probably still better off starting with that.

It's three years since the end of said first movie. Hit Girl is having to adapt to normal life. Dave becomes part of a superhero team called Justice Forever. And Chris returns, to fulfill what he promised at the end of the first film. Become a supervillain.

Suddenly for Dave and friends, things get serious. Can they save themselves and the city from the evildoers?

As an adaptation, this is pretty faithful to the comic. Although just like the first film, it is a somewhat toned down version of the source material. And far more from Kick Ass 2 the comic does get in than the Hit Girl comic.

It does brings in lots of great supporting characters, in particular several of the justice forever team. It's all about growing up and facing up to responsibility and who you are. Something that the heroes manage more than the villains.

Whereas the first film had a light tone to it which meant you couldn't really be bothered by certain things because you knew it wasn't real, this one goes for a different approach. The violence is more graphic and real.
