Following Kick-Ass' heroics, other citizens are inspired to become masked crusaders. But Red Mist leads his own group of evil supervillains to get revenge, kill Kick-Ass and destroy everything he stands for.
A shy student trying to reach his family in Ohio, a gun-toting tough guy trying to find the last Twinkie, and a pair of sisters trying to get to an amusement park join forces to travel across a zombie-filled America.
After Kick-Ass' insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes, our hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist -- reborn as The Mother F%&*^r -- only the blade-wielding Hit Girl can prevent their annihilation. When we last saw junior assassin Hit Girl and young vigilante Kick-Ass, they were trying to live as normal teenagers Mindy and Dave. With graduation looming and uncertain what to do, Dave decides to start the world's first superhero team with Mindy. Unfortunately, when Mindy is busted for sneaking out as Hit Girl, she's forced to retire-leaving her to navigate the terrifying world of high-school mean girls on her own. With no one left to turn to, Dave joins forces with Justice Forever, run by a born-again ex-mobster named Colonel Stars and Stripes. Just as they start to make a real difference on the streets, the world's first super villain, The Mother F%&*^r, assembles his ...Written by
In one scene, where Dave and Mindy are talking, Dave is wearing a shirt that says "I Hate Reboots". That same year, Chloë Grace Moretz starred in a remake of Carrie (1976). See more »
Outside the high school at the beginning of the movie, Dave runs up to Mindy and says, "Hey," clearly without breathing heavily. Dave was clearly catching his breath after he stopped running. See more »
A good sequel but not up to the level of the original
Going into this film I found out that there was a new director helming this but I loved the original and this film is still strong but missing some of the things I loved about the original Kick Ass. This film starts off with Kick Ass and Hitgirl teaming up to fight crime but Hitgirl has to deal with school and this causes Kick Ass to join a superhero team lead by Colonel Stars and stripes against a new super villain called The MotherFer. Now the character of Kick Ass is always good and Chloe Moritz as Hitgirl is good when she is Hitgirl but one thing I didn't like in this film was the fact she was not Hitgirl enough and was in school which I don't really like. The MotherFer is a funny villain and really is a cartoon of villain but works for this film, however, this film is stolen by Jim Carrey as Colonel Stars and stripes he is awesome and is great in every scene he is in, but that is another negative the fact that he is not in the film enough for my liking. This film has a good narrative and story but lacked a bit of the comedy and style of the original plus some of the side heroes and villains aren't really that interesting. However, I don't believe you can dislike this film if you liked the original and I would be interested in a Kick Ass 3 as this film is a very good time.
