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

Wesley Morris

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

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

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.

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.

What was once shocking now just elicits a shrug.

Jason Bailey

Chloe Grace Moretz and the character of Hit Girl are so infinitely more entertaining than the film around them, you can't help but wonder why it's not just a movie about her.

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

By failing to put together an idiotic slapstick humor and the graphic violence that characterized the first film, the result is an irregular sequel that, even… More

Everything good about the original is missing from this mess.
