The costumed high-school hero Kick-Ass joins with a group of normal citizens who have been inspired to fight crime in costume. Meanwhile, the Red Mist plots an act of revenge that will affect everyone Kick-Ass knows.

When we last saw junior assassin Hit Girl and young vigilante Kick-Ass, they were trying to live as normal teenagers Mindy and Dave. With graduation looming and uncertain what to do, Dave decides to start the world's first superhero team with Mindy. Unfortunately, when Mindy is busted for sneaking out as Hit Girl, she's forced to retire-leaving her to navigate the terrifying world of high-school mean girls on her own. With no one left to turn to, Dave joins forces with Justice Forever, run by a born-again ex-mobster named Colonel Stars and Stripes.

I'm a huge fan of the first Kick Ass film and the comics, so I'm a
tough fan to please but this film exceeded my expectations! In a year
full of over-hyped superhero films Kick Ass 2 came along with a low
budget, no contracted actors roped in and R rating and gave me the most
entertaining hour and 40 minutes I've paid for all year!
Excellent acting all round especially from Jim Carrey and Chloe Moretz,
this film doesn't copy and paste the first but stays close enough to it
cinematically that the new director takeover isn't largely noticeable.
I don't understand why the film hasn't been rated better, 10 out of 10
from me. Super on all levels!
