Dave Lizewski (Taylor-Johnson) dons the green wetsuit again, joining forces with super-team Justice Forever, lead by nutbag Colonel Stars and Stripes (Carrey). Meanwhile, Hit-Girl (Moretz) tries to leave her old life behind, and former loser Chris D’Amico (Mintz-Plasse) reinvents himself as a supervillain.
A more modest success than the first Kick-Ass, but still of-a-piece with its scurrilous predecessor. Nobody flies a jet-pack up a skyscraper this time, but Kick-Ass 2 still has its share of over-the-top action, and the sweary laughs are just about intact.
