Rein in expectations a touch before purchasing your tickets and stay until the end of the credits for a treat.

Kick-Ass 2 actually develops its main characters, Hit Girl and Kick Ass, allowing them to grow up in ways that are surprisingly fun and interesting.

It is one big rollicking hot mess of a film, and I like it.
September 6, 2017
While the character development and underlying premise of this installment are far more eloquently stated than they were in the first film, Kick-Ass 2, like its characters, suffers at times from a dual identity.

Kick-Ass 2 is a giddy kind of ride, offering up well-designed action scenes and a few perfectly aimed visual gags but it never does much with its own satirical stylings.
April 14, 2016
A more tonally consistent piece than its predecessor.

The problem with being shocking is that you can only shock once.
July 7, 2015
Kick-Ass 2 has a twisted energy, and from the first scene, in which a caustic Mindy teaches Dave about the importance of a bulletproof vest, it tries everything it can think of.
July 7, 2015
It's well-acted, amusing and occasionally a lot of fun, but that's tempered with a mean, ugly streak that makes it quite sad to watch.
July 7, 2015
Should Kick-Ass 2 represent the end of the line for this polarising, guilty pleasure-defining franchise, it sure was fun while it lasted.
July 7, 2015
Quite a fun ride.

If 2010's Kick-Ass was a one-two sucker punch of glorious goofiness, the follow-up is a more thoughtful superhero send-up.

I don't think Wadlow's telling us to emulate anyone in the films. He's just showing you what sort of moral free-for-all lies just beneath the surface.
July 7, 2015
Kick-Ass 2 delivers a lot of laughs, the performances are still good, and it's certainly ambitious. But it's also decidedly hit and miss.
July 7, 2015
Arguably, too much time is also spent reiterating the cheesy mantra of there being "a hero in all of us", but the violent set pieces and edgy humour remain the same. Plus Jim Carrey as another would-be vigilante gives the pot a pleasing stir.
July 7, 2015
That's the advantage of being the scrappy, scurrilous underdog of the superhero world: you can dare to have your cake and eat it.
July 7, 2015
Subversive, naughty and often outright clever, Kick-Ass 2 is a satirical, and often on-target, look at comic book mentality.
July 7, 2015
[Kick-Ass 2] wisely banks on the charisma of Moretz and Taylor-Johnson. But the filmmakers run out of script long before the climax.
January 2, 2014
The new ensemble is underused, but the central duo of Kick-Ass and Hit Girl are still likable, even if Hit Girl runs away with the film.
September 29, 2013
Yet the film's biggest treat - and this will come as no surprise to Kick-Ass fans - is how strong and magnetic a character Hit Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) has become. She's great. Trouble is, there's not enough of her.
