Kick Ass 2

kickass2Saw Kick Ass 2 this afternoon.  Overall impression: not quite as good as the first movie, but still worth seeing, especially if you liked the first one.

Kick Ass 2 picks up about where the first movie ended.  It hits up the comedy side of things a little more than the first movie (especially Hit Girl trying to integrate into ‘normal’ high school society), but don’t worry, there’s still plenty of gritty violence and turns a little dark towards the end (like the first movie).

I was a bit disappointed that there were not as many cool gunfights as the first movie, but there were a lot more brawls to make up for it.  Once again, Dave Lizewski spends a lot of time getting his ass kicked while Hit Girls saves his butt, though by the end of the movie he’s starting to hold his own.  In many ways it’s a coming-of-age story for Kick Ass and Hit Girl, where they try to figure out if they’re real super heroes or just regular people taking a break from reality.

If you’re a fan of the first movie, or just like action comedies, go see Kick Ass 2.
