I didn't mind it, but didn't really like it either

When I was in high school, I couldn't wait to see this movie because I loved the first one a lot. Once it came out on demand/DVD, I finally got to watch it and it was just average at beast. I mean it still had funny moments but it also got pretty dumb at times. I guess it's worth one watch if you like the first like I did

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing

Kick Ass 2 is not what I expected

The thing that bugged me about this film? Dave hooks up with Night Bitch?! C'mon! He and Kate belong together. He should have fought for her in this movie. I hope they wind up together in the 3rd installment.

    Not a superhero movie; a dark, gory, complex morality tale.

    Excellent sequel much darker, more violent than the first.

    Hellboy II: The Golden Army

    Imaginative, campy comic book fun; lots of scares.

    Mystery Men

    Witty comic-book story is edgy, with lots of potty humor.
