Movie Review: Kick-Ass 2

Eh. As a fan of the original film, Kick-Ass, and having held a ridiculously high expectations going into this, Kick-Ass 2 was consistently decent but remarkably disappointing. The story was a bit of a mess as I felt like it couldn't decide if it was going for a tongue-in-cheek action comedy or a generic full blown superhero film. The wit and charm that made its predecessor glorious was missing, the jokes were a tad sloppy and there's a depressing lack of carefree violence. Sure, there was still a good amount of blood and gore, but the execution was frustratingly bland. The lead actors were still great especially Chloƫ Grace Moretz and there were still a couple of strong action scenes, but Kick-Ass 2 just didn't live up to its potential. This could've been such a great movie. 6.5
