Kick-Ass 2 (2013)

The first Kick-Ass succeeded because it presented a mix of nerd humor with hardcore fighting and serious topics. The movie's outcome surprised everyone because of how grim it got. Even if it was a pure commercial hit, it was original and surprisingly good. This sequel, Kick-Ass 2 follows the exact same formula, except that in this case it turned out badly. The plot is generally the same, and it is not original anymore, failing to surprise the audience this time. The thing is that the movie wants to be realistic, it even criticizes high-school at a point (honestly, who cares?!), but, losing the surprise effect, the gore and emotional scenes do not make sense in a movie that has its bases on nerd humor. So, Kick-Ass 2 has an identity problem. It is confusing, it stalls too much, and it changes its mood way too many times, as if the director Jeff Wadlow had a cauldron and threw in there all the ingredients that made the first movie such a good flick. It's a shame, even if it is fun and entertaining to watch.
