2010’s Kick-ass was a movie not without problems, but what problems it had were easy to forget because it was actually fun. It melded over the top violence and profanity with an upbeat and optimistic “holy shit we’re superheroes” tone which gave the movie a unique energy, and a couple of brilliant casting moves made the whole endeavor…. well fun really is the operative word here.
It’s 3 years later both in our world and theirs and Kick-Ass 2 is here and you know what? It holds up pretty well!
