So this is the second part of the overly funny and entertaining superhero movie. I have already suspected that it wouldn’tbe as good as the first one, but I definitely wanted to watch it. First, I wanted to see Jim Carrey in a superhero role, and second, I like Chloë Grace Moretz’s role as Hit Girl and didn’t want to mis that. The movie in its whole was not really bad, it was also quite entertaining with much not-to-be-taken-serious violence and cursing. What bothered me was that a lot of time was spent on that High-School facade, with the mean girls trying to humiliate Hit Girl. I thought this was a bit off-topic and unrealistic (I wasn’t at an american high school, so I don’t know if the stereotypes are so extreme).
The rest was quite forseeable and there were no real surprises in the movie. I liked the Motherfucker though :’D he was probably the most entertaining figure in this movie. Christopher Mintz-Plasse did a great job. He was even more hilarious than Jim Carrey :’D A shame that he died. He was a funny villain. The battle scene was also predictable. I knew that Hit Girl would fight with Mother Russia and that it would have a surprisingly unsurprising end. However, what bothered me most was the kissing between Hit Girl and Kick-Ass! This really wasn’t necessary. Now I don’t know what to think of Hit Girl anymore. It ruined everything, although I had feared the whole movie over, that this might happen in the end…
Final review – 6/10: It was a bit disappointing, and not nearly as good as the first one, but it is watchable, if you are not bothered by the things I was, and if you can’t predict every scene beforehand.
