When we last checked in, mild mannered Dave Lizewski (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) seemed to have found his calling as a masked crime fighting vigilante known as Kick-Ass. Now that time has passed a small group of civilians have taken Dave’s call to arms to heart and created a small army of everyday super heroes. Lead by Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), Dr. Gravity (Donald Faison), Night Bitch (Lindy Booth), Battle Guy (Clark Duke), and Tommy’s Parents (Steven Mackintosh, Monica Dolan) are well on their way to making a positive difference in the community. So, when Dave joins the group his hopes and dreams seem actualized; but in his heart, nothing can take the place of his close friend and once partner, Hit Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz). Of course, super villain Chris D’Amico/Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) still has unresolved revenge plans for Kick-Ass after their last battle– resulting in a hired group of super villains, most notably Mother Russia (Olga Kurkulina). The table is set for ultimate battle, survival won’t be easy and it will most definitely mean actions defying parents orders. Who will live to fight another day, and is there anything that will possibly convince Hit Girl to don the cape and fight the good fight?kickass2 Partially penned by comic book heavy weight Mark Millar, this irreverent and politically incorrect comedy/action/pulp/exploitation will offer fans plenty to sink their teeth into. Heavy duty action with dialogue sharpened like a rusty can, if you’re looking for a deep and thoughtful plot, look elsewhere. But serious inertia propels the choreography making for seat squirming thrills, chills, and spills. And, while the shock of the original concept may have dulled a bit, as a continuation of Kick-Ass, a sufficient diet of empty fun carbs is clearly on the ingredient list. Perhaps a matinee, maybe more. Kick-Ass 2 is rated R.
