Kick-Ass 2 | Ratings & Reviews

"It’s somewhat surprising that many of the fight scenes in Kick-Ass 2 aren’t all that memorable, given they were the only thing worth remembering in Jeff Wadlow’s Never Back Down. The highway sequence in particular is a victim of bad post-production. Still, the sequel’s new director admirably keeps the manic mix of R-rated comedy and action seen in Matthew Vaughn’s original while omitting the terrible attempts at shock-drama that polluted Mark Millar’s comic – the ultra-violence is already full-on without the need of animal decapitation, child slaughter and gang rape."

"As diverting as this action-packed caper often is, it feels not just weightless but emotionally and morally stunted whenever it veers into grown-up dramatic territory."


"A fun if sporadically schizoid return to one of the brighter, brasher comic-bookers of recent years."

Total FilmTotal Film

"The best thing about ‘Kick-Ass’ was Moretz, and Hit-Girl still gets the best lines. Like the first film, Kick-Ass 2 pulls the reality of teen life into its fantasy."

Time OutTime Out

"There isn't anything good to say about Kick-Ass 2."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"A messy, confused, over-the-top mixture of brutality and sick comedy, puckishness and ugliness, self-awareness and tone-deafness."

The DissolveThe Dissolve

"The film delivers almost exactly what fans of the first installment are hoping for."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"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."
