After the death of Big Daddy (Nicholas Cage), Mindy Mcready (Chloe G Moretz) is entrusted in the care her dad’s best friend and former partner Marcus (Morris Chestnut), She was supposed to live the life of a normal teenage girl but because of her promise to her father to protect the city, she decides to continue her training as Hit Girl, which inspires Dave (Aaron Johnson) to do so as well.

But when Mindy decides to stop being a superhero, Dave is left in the lurch and he decides to join a band of costumed vigilantes that patrol the streets against evildoers under the leadership of Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), a reformed criminal. Meanwhile, Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), now known as the Motherfucker builds up his own gang of hired assassins to exact revenge on Kick Ass for the death of his father, Frank D’Amico (Mark Strong).

Aaron Taylor is good in character and it was fun seeing him again as Kick Ass. Chloe Grace Moretz makes any film awesome, I just wished there were more scenes of Hit Girl. Jim Carrey is alright as supporting super hero, but it even touch Nicolas Cage’s Big Daddy in the first film.

The best part of Kick Ass (2010) is Hit Girl played by awesomely talented Chloe grace Moretz. It’s Chloe that makes this character so interesting, chilling and awe-inspiring all at the same time. Even though main lead Aaron Taylor – Johnson is great as lead character, Kick Ass. But it’s Chloe who gathered all the argument and had best scenes in Part 1.
Kick Ass 2 starts sometime after the events of first film. Director Wadlow succeeds in maintaining the continuity of the characters that we all grew to love in the first film and there are various fun action episodes that will surely blow your mind. The main problem with the Kick Ass 2 is that there are very few scenes with Hit Girl and Kick Ass. The Violent scenes come off as inanity. We just miss the emotional core that grounded the first film and superb BGM that raised the bars of the first film. The film starts off in an entertaining and energetic way, but it soon falls flat. The first and last 30 minutes of the film delivers great action and jokes. But the scenes in-between are not as Kick Ass as expected. Keeping the problems aside, I still enjoyed the Kick Ass 2 as fun action film.

Survi Review: 2.5/5
