Kick Ass 2 sees the costumed high-school hero Kick-Ass join with a group of normal citizens who have been inspired to fight crime in costume. Meanwhile, the Red Mist and the Mother-F*cker plot an act of revenge that will affect everyone Kick-Ass knows and loves.

I was lucky enough to attend a private screening with the cast on Wednesday (August 14) during my small stay in L.A and in all honesty, I was not expecting a whole lot more than what the original provided. I was very pleasantly surprised. Not only does the film deliver twice the action but it also has a more structured story and is much more emotional and thought provoking.
For the action scenes, they are a far step up from its predecessor, slightly more brutal, much more clever and definitely more entertaining. The effects used to capture the action scenes are superb, showing the sheer ferociousness of the violence, similar to the original but again still retaining the comedy that was so appealing in the original also. 

On an emotional and acting level the performances are stunning. Jim Carrey and Chloe Grace Moretz basically own the film and put up stunning performances. Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Aaron Taylor-Johnson also impress with their amazing performances, suiting their roles very effectively. In my opinion Chloe probably gives one of the best performances in the film and one of the best I have seen from her. I may be a good friend and fanof hers which may seem bias but if you see the film for yourself you'll agree with me.
As for the comedy, it is far more funny and entertaining than than the first. Much more cruder and sometimes quite dark but Kick Ass 2 returns with that quick witted and rude humor that was hilarious in the first and evolves in the second.
The film is simply very worth seeing and checking out for anybody who either loves comedy or action as there is plenty of both. And for whowever loves both, your in for a real treat.

Good comedy, great action, stunning performances from the A-list cast! Kick Ass 2 really is a kick ass film and is definitely one not to be missed! 

Kick Ass 2 stars Chloe Moretz, Jim Carrey, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and lots more and is out in cinemas now!
