Quick Fire Review: Kick Ass 2

Kick-Ass-2-PosterHere’s the Not Suitable For Work trailer

Why did I want to watch it? 

I really liked Kick Ass.

Did I like it?

I really liked Kick Ass’s direction, script, Nic Cage, Mark Strong and the Hit Girl character.  Most of which is missing from this film. This film is more about Mindy and Kick Ass and has a different feel to it.  There are some very good moments and Jim Carrey, distance himself as he might, is wonderful, but it felt less coherent than the first film.  Disappointing.  The best thing about the film is Mother Russia by a very long way, but she’s not worth the price of admission alone.

Should you watch it?

It does look pretty good on the screen, but if you are sitting on the fence you can wait for the dvd.

Other films it reminds me of:

Kick Ass but not in a good way.

Watch this instead/as well/before/after:

Mystery Men – a quirky comedy with an amazing cast about a group of inept amateur superheroes who try to save the day when a supervillian threatens to destroy a major superhero and the city.
