Kick-Ass was a movie about a kid who decides to become a superhero and the epic ass beating he takes in the process. It played like it was written by a drunk, Scottish sailor on shore leave, retelling the Spiderman origin story to some Somali pirates that had never read comics. That’s to say, it was hyper-violent and featured a lil girl that said “Cunt”, in the cute, but intimidating way, only a lil girl with a switch blade can. It’s easily in the top 10 of superhero movies, of all time.
Now we get Kick-Ass 2, which follows the continuing adventures of Hit-Girl and Kick Ass, as superheroics and supervillainy escalate in their city. They battle McLovin, who is now a bad guy called Motherfucker. This sounds ridiculous, but it all makes sense if you just imagine a drunk sailor came up with this shit.
McLovin looks like the one dude that fucks up the whole fetish orgy for everyone in this trailer, Chloe Moertz will most likely steal the show, and Aaron Johnson does his best to make a wetsuit look cool. New to the cast, is ya boy, Jim Carrey, who has now officially entered into the Nicholas Cage portion of his career, where he’ll show up in movies and give performances that would only be appropriate if he was on a ton of coke and had never actually seen a movie before. Planning on seeing this one opening day.
Kick-Ass 2 drops on August 16th.- raythedestroyer
