- Standard Good guys vs Bad guys / "you killed my Father, prepare to die" movie
- Seems to shift between Kick Ass and Hit Girl hanging up their boots... then coming back... then leaving... why not just have a movie about them both teaming up from the start? Felt a lot like plot padding more than anything else...
- Weird "who am I / why can't I be normal" arc for Hit Girl which just felt awkward / like more padding
- Weird love arc for Kick Ass which is supposed to make us care more for the new characters but didn't really do anything for me
- Some cliche Watchmen-esque "people in masks did bad things therefore all mask wearers are bad" moments
- Action scenes were quite entertaining, except the first one in the alley which was rather weak. Not quite sure about the level of violence being as bad as Jim Carrey seemed to make out...
- Some funny bits (but many of the jokes fell flat)
- When it finally took shape the development of the relationship between Hit Girl and Kick Ass was good to see
- If you've watched the trailer you've seen 99% of the one-liners
- Other characters are pretty disposable... especially Jim Carrey... wasn't invested in them nearly as heavily as the dynamic between Big Daddy and Hit Girl in the first movie
- Effects were bad... almost to the point where I couldn't really take them seriously... especially the blood... looked like a high school animator did it
- Fucking social networking overuse / technobabble still... my God it was nauseating how many times they mentioned posting to Twitter/ Youtube / tracing IPs etc
Was in the mood for a silly movie and this one fit the bill. Not quite as good as the first overall imo, but found it entertaining. 2.5-3 KFC buckets out of 5.
There's a stinger after the credits too. Bit lame...
