BECAUSE MOTHER FUCKER WAS TAKEN

August 18, 2013

Hey my “Kick-Ass 2” reviews have gone viral. Also, I fiddled around with the site’s hero/avatar maker. With good results!

Anyway, on with the reviews!

8-REASONS-TO-LOVE-“KICK-ASS2”-TITLE

Big Daddy, mentor to both Hit Girl and Kick-Ass, is dead. Kick-Ass 2 is the sequel to the 2010 film where everything else is the aftermath and other heroes, emboldened by reports of the exploits of the trio and Big Daddy’s torture and eventual demise on the interwebs, have helped shape the popular consciousness of the world. Kick-Ass is no more and David Lizewski (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) is living a very bored, retired life as a high school upperclassman.

Meantime, Mindy Macready (Chloe Grace Moretz) has been remitted to the custody of her guardian and her father’s ex-partner, Sergeant Marcus Williams. She’s going to the same school as a freshman.

Thing is, she hasn’t really been going to school but has hacked into the school’s system and given herself perfect attendance, allowing her to proceed with her superheroics behind the scenes unabated.

Watch the trailer to catch up on everything else.

Movie review: ‘Kick-Ass 2’ scores A+ for bloody adult entertainment

 By  August 15, 2013 4:53pm

Two things to know about this sequel to Kick-Ass (2010): one, it’s Rated R-16 by the MTCB and, two, because of its rating, adult themes abound through out the movie.

The first is meant to warn parents who think this is another Walt Disney/Marvel/DC superhero adaptation and caution them against bringing their little tykes; you’ll just get stopped and turned away at the cinema. The second may be a tricky concept for those adults who think that just because there are people getting mauled and getting off on making rape jokes, that this is the same kind of heavy handed dramatic Chris Nolan kind of endeavor that made Batman gritty and noir-ish.

We open in the aftermath of the first movie, a few years later, where Kick-Ass is no more and his real-life face David Lizewski (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) is living a very bored, retired life as a high school upperclassman.

Meantime, Mindy Macready (Chloe Grace Moretz) has been remitted to the custody of her guardian and her father’s ex-partner, Sergeant Marcus Williams. She’s going to the same school but as a freshman.

In the wake of both their exploits and the exposure they got online and through mainstream media, their insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders. One of the most prominent cells is called Justice Forever, led by Colonel Stars and Stripes.

Where Kick-Ass is having a crisis of conscience (how can I let all the good I did pass me by when everybody else is dressing up and being superheroes?), Hit Girl is having a crisis of identity (how can I be forced to live the life of a normal teen girl when I know 99 and one ways to kill people?).
