Kick-Ass 2 The Movie
The movie opens pretty much like the comic, Dave just monologuing to himself, describing some of his adventures as Kick-Ass, informing the audience about how new heroes have been popping up, blah, blah, blah. Something a little interesting they did though was certain details from the Hit-Girl side-story, where she trained Kick-Ass for a bit. Unfortunately though they didn't manage to get the full story in with her solo adventure, but that definitely would've been a bit much.
The story's actually pretty faithful to the comics, and actually does a better job at it than the first one. Of course certain things had to be cut out, because there was no way it was gonna make it into theaters, (Not even sure how they allowed some of it in the comics.) but there were also some things that had to be added, not only due to the changes in the first movie, but also add to the comedy. Speaking of which, the comedy's pretty excessive, but it's welcome due to some of the tragedies that occur. Overall, I didn't nerd rage too much and annoy my friends. I also really loved all the ads for Mark Millar's other works. (Go read Superior!!!)
If you like the comics, or at least the first movie, you're definitely gonna enjoy this one. If you haven't seen any of, but like super heroes, why not give it a try? That is, unless you're sensitive to gore, profanity, violence, and nudity, theeen you might wanna turn away. I hear Planes is pretty good! Tch, forget that. Just go watch Pacific Rim again!
