THERE'S NO ROOM FOR PUNKS IN SUITS! Just real heroes who can really kick ass... again, while trying very hard to keep the franchise edgy and fresh. The original Kick Ass director, Matthew Vaughn, handed this installment off to Katie Curic's nephew? but our cast is bolstered by Jim Carrey, John Leguizamo, and can we really ever get enough of Chloë Moretz swearing and beating the hell out of dudes?! New heroes, new villains, new expectations to overcome in this ultra fan boy franchise sequel.
If the appeal of the original Kick Ass was it's irresponsible father leading hyper violent, super obscene, underage heroes to vigilante justice but your sequel lacks the father and your heroes no longer appear underage, then how do you keep the violence and obscenity edgy enough to satisfy? (...inventions like the "sick-stick") What do you call an independent B story that does not crisscross the A story but executes the same theme? (A structural nightmare... and in the end, you call it a second A story in the middle of a film that's not supposed to be multi-plot.) How did the film differ from the Graphic Novel? What's the most obscene word a teenage girl can say? And how do we really feel about McLovin' in S&M attire?
