Kick-Ass, Hit Girl and Red Mist return for the follow-up to 2010’s irreverent global hit: Kick-Ass 2. After Kick-Ass’ (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), our hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse)—reborn as The Mother F%&*^r—only the blade-wielding Hit Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) can prevent their annihilation. 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. 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.

There isn't anything good to say about "Kick-Ass 2," the even more witless, mirthless follow-up to "Kick-Ass."Manohla Dargis, New York Times, 08.15.2013
What was once shocking now just elicits a shrug.Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly, 08.15.2013
It revels in carnage while lacking the visual style and gleeful humor of the original.Claudia Puig, USA Today, 08.15.2013
Writer-director Jeff Wadlow establishes a premise and follows it without compromise, but the trail leads to a very ugly place. In the end, the journey wasn't really worth it.Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, 08.15.2013
