Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"All the wonder and surprise of the first movie is gone. It's just aping the violence in other movies and other comic books."
‑ Wesley Morris, Grantland
"Even the novelty of a deadly, blasphemous Hit-Girl wears off, and all that's left is over-the-top violence and under-the-belt humor."
‑ Michael Sragow, Orange County Register
"Tonally disastrous, the movie attempts to depict gruesome violence as serious one moment and hysterically entertaining the next."
‑ Tom Clift, Movie Mezzanine
"Uma ode ao vigilantismo, deixando de estabelecer, no processo, a diferença que fazia o original tão eficiente: o fato de que, na fantasia, os atos de violência não trazem consequências reais."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Funny, raunchy and action-packed. 'Kick-Ass 2' doesn't quite live up the creativity of its superlative predecessor. This is R-rated material that is not suitable for children or for those accustomed to PG-13-rated superhero fare."
‑ Linda Cook, Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)
"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."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"What was once shocking now just elicits a shrug."
‑ Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly
"The new ensemble is underused, but the central duo of Kick-Ass and Hit Girl are still likable, even if Hit Girl runs away with the film."
‑ Martin Roberts, Fan The Fire
"Maybe we should have left this franchise where it started."
‑ Eric Eisenberg,
"Sometimes funny and extremely violent, "Kick Ass 2" is a by the book sequel that continues the concept of regular citizens becoming heroes."
‑ Michael A. Smith, MediaMikes
"Sequel offers exactly the blend of R-rated nastiness and candy-colored action fans expect."
‑ John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter
"The year's most unpleasant movie."
‑ Adam Nayman, Globe and Mail
"A disappointingly half-baked sequel..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Yet the film's biggest treat - and this will come as no surprise to Kick-Ass fans - is how strong and magnetic a character Hit Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) has become. She's great. Trouble is, there's not enough of her."
‑ Jim Schembri, 3AW
"KICK-ASS 2 defames the original. It's a style-less and humourless retread; sans heart."
‑ Blake Howard, 2UE That Movie Show
