The much anticipated sequel to Kick-Ass has arrived in theaters, and we want to know what you think!

Kick-Ass, Hit Girl and Red Mist return for the follow-up to 2010’s irreverent global hit: ‘Kick-Ass 2.’ After Kick-Ass’ (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), our hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse)—reborn as The Mother F%&*^r—only the blade-wielding Hit Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) can prevent their annihilation. 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. Just as they start to make a real difference on the streets, the world’s first super villain, The Mother F%&*^r, assembles his own evil league and puts a plan in motion to make Kick-Ass and Hit Girl pay for what they did to his dad. But there’s only one problem with his scheme: If you mess with one member of Justice Forever, you mess with them all.

    Loved it, wasn’t quite as good as the first, but the first was very hard to top.

    I thought it was a great follow up to the first movie. Cast changes and easily dumping off a few characters (mainly the GF) seemed a little strange, but no complaints overall.

    So much better than the comic that inspired it. Took many of the things that I did enjoy from the Kick-ass series and ran with them, without getting dragged down into the general muck that seems to be Millar seems to be a bit too heavy on lately, much like the first movie.

    Anyone who didn’t like the first like the second one? I saw the first expecting a rendition of the great comic book (a nice parody/deconstruction of the genre) and got “generic super-hero movie number 215” instead.

    They took what was original in the comics: like Big Daddy been just a comic book geek and not the Punisher, the hero not getting the girl and so on… And lined a series of cliches loosely based on the source material.

      I don’t agree. I think both movies answer the question “Why aren’t there any real life superheroes?” It’s because they would get killed, there loved ones would get killed, and most would turn into murderers themselves. It was just portrayed in dark comedy.

    I liked it a lot as well. I hope to see a third movie but only if Hit Girl is still in it.
    I thought Red Mist could have been less of an wuss. I also find it interesting that Jim Carrey separated himself from this movie because I felt like his character was the most wholesome character in the movie. I really liked the character development and was sad when the movie was over.
