my thoughts...

It's an insanely violent sequel that lacks humor and originality.

"Try to have fun. Otherwise, what's the point?"

Kick-Ass 2 is a superhero action comedy sequel film directed by Jeff Wadlow and starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloe Grace Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Jim Carrey and Claudia Lee. Language(5/5): Though the film does have less overall cursing then the first film, it still has frequent swearing and a profane title, including 48 uses of “a**”, 47 uses of “f**k”, 25 uses of “s**t”, 23 uses of “b**ch”, 13 uses of “hell”, 8 uses of “G**”, 7 uses of “c**k”(6 of which are “c**ksucker”) and “d**k”, 6 uses of “a**hole”, 4 uses of “g****mn”, “J*s*s” and “damn”, 2 uses of “f***ot” and “balls”, and 1 use of “pu**y”, “t*ts”, “for Chr**t’s sake”, “pr**k”, “wh*re”, “d**che” and “gay”. A villain says the name of his team is “The Toxic Mega C**ts”, which is said twice. The film has 209 total curses. Sex, Romance and Nudity(4/5): In one brief scene, two topless women are shown in one scene and are said to be prostitutes. The hero makes out with a girl in a bathroom stall and has sex with her; we hear brief moaning but nothing is shown. A brief masturbation joke occurs when the hero has trouble with his zipper, pulling it up and down. The hero’s father walks in on him, and the father believes that he is masturbating and leaves the room in discomfort. Hit Girl becomes interested in sex in this film, with jokes about arousal. Shirtless men are shown. Women wear outfits that show cleavage. A teen girl wears short-shorts with her butt showing and does a pole dance for a cheerleader audition. Sexual cursing includes uses of “f**k”, “c**k”, “d**k”, “t*ts”, “balls”, “pu**y” and “wh*re”. Drinking, Drugs and Smoking(4/5): Hit Girl takes adrenaline during the finale, which isn’t graphically shown. Vodka, martinis and liquor are consumed. A man briefly smokes cigarettes. A character's mother is seen pouring some vodka into a pitcher, and that's about it. No other drinking, smoking, or drugs -- though Hit Girl does take an injection of adrenaline during the final fight. Violence(5/5): The film is much more violent than the first, with the same type of violence simply having much more gore. A man is kicked in the head, and blood spurts out in slow motion. A fight involves pool cues, and people are impaled with them, which is quite gory. People are run over by cars, with blood splattering. A man is eaten by a shark, with blood in the water. A man is strangled, and we see a photograph of his corpse. A dog bites down on someone’s genitals during a fight(not graphically shown). Bloody fistfighting, violent punching, gun violence, bomb detonations, knife fights and use of other weapons all occur in the film. Characters are stabbed to death with broken shards of glass. A man is briefly decapitated. A man is burned to death offscreen. During the fights, women are involved. Positive Messages(1/5): The film’s message is that anyone can be a hero, though not everyone should be given that responsibility. Positive Role Models and Representations(1/5): Teamwork is demonstrated by the heroes. Watching Experience: Nothing of note with my experience regarding mature content. Quality(opinionated): (My rating) Rated R For strong language including brief uses of slurs and some sexual references, intense bloody violence, brief nudity and brief drug use.

Cool Superhero for Teens and Older Teens

I love this movie for a number of reasons and so will other kids if they enjoy action, adventure or superhero movies! I love the cast everyone from Chloë Grace Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Jim Carrey! The film has a lot of violence like the first one. Tons of fighting and that's expected from a superhero/action film. There are in one scene, two women topless in a pool but it's from a distance so you can't see anything too terribly graphic. There's also a scene in which the antagonist is about to rape a character but let's just say he couldn't get it up. It doesn't show any nudity and nothing happens but it is a bit much. There is also a scene where the main character and another character go into a public bathroom stall a couple times to have sex. There is lots of innuendo and swear words like in the first one. I think that as long as the kid watching knows what's happening, it shouldn't be too big of a deal to let them watch it. I showed the first movie and this one to my mom and she enjoyed them both. It's a good film for teens and older.

inappropriate!!!

sooooo much swearing-more bad words were said in this movie than I've heard in my entire lifetime!- characters are literally named night bitch and motherf---er. rape is also implied and the motherf---er is about to rape a female superhero. so much violence-especially( but not limited to) the bad guys- both them killing police AND being killed. a graphic photo of a dead body is shown. and two topless women are shown and are said to be prostitutes. OVERALL not for kids or teens-ADULTS ONLY

It was okay, but definately ended a good trilogy too early!

I recently watched kick ass 2 when it came to netflix, and let me just say, unlike the first film this is not funny, it could have been, but it isn't. This film was trying to be funny and less serious, and it ended up being trash. But the first film tried to be funny and serious and is now a really good film. I am 11 and watched this film and found it fine, I mean, my friends at school talk about things way more inapprpiate than this, if an 18 year old watched this film, they would probably think it was childish. And thats because underneath you can tell this film is mainly aimed at middle school kids. the violence is way more tame than the first film. And the sex isn't explicit, But there is still sex

Meh

Not very bloody, but incredibly raunchy. Parents need to know that this action comedy is a sequel not a new movie, and that it is very violent and crude. There's tons of sex jokes that are very rude plus some graphic bloody shootouts. Swearing is the main issue, with constant F bombs and S words. Pretty bad movie but if you like action then give this one a watch Violence: 4/5 Language: 5/5 Sex: 2/5 Drinking drugs and smoking: 0/5
