Consensus: Kick-Ass 2 falls short in its attempt to emulate the original's unique blend of ultra-violence and ironic humor.

All the wonder and surprise of the first movie is gone. It's just aping the violence in other movies and other comic books.

If it works at all, fitfully, it's because of the precociously talented and in-control Moretz, who basically carries the entire film on her own small shoulders.

Sequel offers exactly the blend of R-rated nastiness and candy-colored action fans expect.

This one really kicked it hard to be a PITA to get through the first hour. The first hour is extremely pathetic. After that, it becomes tolerable. I liked Chloe… More
