More Info:
  • John DeFore

    The film delivers almost exactly what fans of the first installment are hoping for.

  • Alan Scherstuhl

    The most welcome change is the tone. Wadlow has decided he's making a straight-up comedy, and he demonstrates a knack for it.

  • Steve Persall

    It's rambunctiously amusing but the laughs clot in your throat. There's a meaner streak this time to Kick-Ass and Hit Girl's exploits, or maybe Carrey's sensitivity is justified. Either way, the third act of Kick-Ass 2 is a visceral beatdown.

    I do get a chuckle out of movies with wildly inappropriate behavior, rude language and ultramayhem, especially when they involve children, but Kick-Ass 2 sometimes felt like being trapped in a room with the funniest guy in seventh grade.

  • James Berardinelli

    Tone isn't the movie's sole problem. There's something off-putting about Christopher Mitz-Plasse as the chief bad guy.

  • Bilge Ebiri

    Kick-Ass 2, a movie that, for all its predictable sequel-ness, manages to conjure up pretty much the same dark magic that the earlier film did, albeit with more troubling results. Believe it or not, Kick-Ass 2 is even more of a provocation than the first Kick-Ass.

  • Justin Chang

    As diverting as this action-packed caper often is, it feels not just weightless but emotionally and morally stunted whenever it veers into grown-up dramatic territory.

    Variety Full Review
  • Owen Williams

    A more modest success than the first "Kick-Ass," but still of-a-piece with its scurrilous predecessor. Nobody flies a jet-pack up a skyscraper this time, but Kick-Ass 2 still has its share of over-the-top action, and the sweary laughs are just about intact.

    Empire Full Review
  • Matt Risley

    A fun if sporadically schizoid return to one of the brighter, brasher comic-bookers of recent years.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Cath Clarke

    The best thing about ‘Kick-Ass’ was Moretz, and Hit-Girl still gets the best lines. Like the first film, Kick-Ass 2 pulls the reality of teen life into its fantasy.

    Faithful to the superficial thrills and flaws of the original. Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    Moretz, who is 16 now, can't manufacture the same that's-so-wrong jolt she managed the first time around. Back then, it was hilariously taboo to see a little girl spout arias of profanity. Now, she's just another teenager swearing. Like the rest of the film, what was once shocking now just elicits a shrug.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    Like its own protagonists, Kick-Ass 2 can’t decide what it wants to be when it grows up: a vessel for unhinged vengeance and destruction or a meta-critique of those same impulses. In going for both, it winds up being neither.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Kick-Ass 2 has a mean-spirited vigilante streak the first film lacked (it seemed more concerned with justice, in its way), as well as a fatigue. It’s still funny, particularly when Hit Girl spews profanity and wields weapons. It’s just not as good.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    A weird mix of the refreshing and the dispiriting, Kick-Ass 2 is appealing in its brutal honesty and repellent in its honest brutality.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    To stand out in a crowded marketplace, a sequel can’t just kick ass — it has to blow minds.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    What seemed edgy and brash in Kick-Ass is now routine and old-hat. The first movie was a brash satire on formulaic comic-book movies — exactly the sort of picture the sequel turns out to be.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    Even with its edges sanded down, Kick-Ass 2 is unmistakably Millaresque — a juvenile comedy of excess, in which skewering adolescent power fantasies looks an awful lot like indulging in them.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    Kick-Ass 2 returns with the original’s rollicking sense of vulgarity and bodily trauma fully intact, but the story has more plot lines to string together than absolutely necessary.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Mark Olsen

    Kick-Ass 2 is a lesser version of what it appears to be, an uncertain jumble rather than a true exploration of outrage, violence and identity.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Gabe Toro

    The crime isn’t that Kick-Ass 2 is vulgar (which it is), but that it’s for so little gain.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    That makes Kick Ass 2 more sour than sweet, a movie that jokes about comic book fanboys but stops short of mocking them the way the first film did.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    The meta-satire hits you over the head until not just your Spidey sense is tingling.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Tasha Robinson

    A messy, confused, over-the-top mixture of brutality and sick comedy, puckishness and ugliness, self-awareness and tone-deafness.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Robbie Collin

    Your ass is constantly braced in readiness and hope, but it remains un-kicked.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    Kick-Ass 2 is an uninspired retread. All too often it plays like a Comic-Con gone insane, with costumed do-gooders taking on costumed criminals in gratuitously vicious battles.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Kick-Ass is a prime example of a movie that never should have bothered with a sequel. Not only is its successor played-out, but it revels in carnage while lacking the visual style and gleeful humor of the original.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    In the annals of sequeldom, Kick-Ass 2 has to be one of the lamest follow-ups ever.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    It's no better, no worse and essentially no different from the jocular, clodhopping brutality of the first one.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    Kick-Ass 2 is a special kind of crap: the kind smart people make for audiences they think are stupid.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Stephen Whitty

    If it works at all, fitfully, it's because of the precociously talented and in-control Moretz, who carries the film on her own small shoulders.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Chris Cabin

    The film doubles down on the love-hate relationship with ultra-violence that typified its predecessor, but A History of Violence this is not.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Adam Nayman

    Arriving at the tail end of blockbuster season, this cheaply produced sequel to the surprise 2011 hit arrives in plenty of time to claim the title of the year’s most unpleasant movie.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    The writer and director, Jeff Wadlow, can’t obscure the movie’s misogyny, and he also has a tough time staging a scene and selling a joke. His worst offense is that he has no understanding of the power, gravity and terrible beauty of violent imagery, which means he has no grasp of cinema.
