So I’ve been waiting for Kick-Ass 2 to come out for a long while now, ever since I saw Kick-Ass twice in theaters. I liked everything from the storyline to the action scenes and even to the soundtrack. Kick-Ass 2 stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloë Grace Moretz and Christopher Mintz-Plasse reprising their roles from the first film. In addition, Jim Carrey plays the role of Colonel Stars and Stripes, the leader of a group of superheroes called “Justice Forever”.
Synopsis: “Kick-Ass, Hit Girl and Red Mist return for the follow-up to 2010’s irreverent global hit: Kick-Ass 2. After Kick-Ass’ (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), our hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse)—reborn as The Mother F%&*^r—only the blade-wielding Hit Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) can prevent their annihilation.
When we last saw junior assassin Hit Girl and young vigilante Kick-Ass, they were trying to live as normal teenagers Mindy and Dave. With graduation looming and uncertain what to do, Dave decides to start the world’s first superhero team with Mindy. Unfortunately, when Mindy is busted for sneaking out as Hit Girl, she’s forced to retire—leaving her to navigate the terrifying world of high-school mean girls on her own. With no one left to turn to, Dave joins forces with Justice Forever, run by a born-again ex-mobster named Colonel Stars and Stripes.
Just as they start to make a real difference on the streets, the world’s first super villain, The Mother F%&*^r, assembles his own evil league and puts a plan in motion to make Kick-Ass and Hit Girl pay for what they did to his dad. But there’s only one problem with his scheme: If you mess with one member of Justice Forever, you mess with them all.”
If you haven’t heard of or seen the first one, I suggest you go to your local library and check it out because you’re a cheap monkey and libraries could use some visitors. Anyway, because I’m lazy, here’s the wiki-summary of Kick-Ass OR you could just scroll down to watch the Kick-Ass 2 Red-Band trailer. *The red band trailer was released exclusively on MTV website, but I’ve made it easier for you to just view it from YouTube so you didn’t have to enter your d.o.b. cause you know…we all hate that.*
“Kick-Ass is a 2010 British superhero action comedy film based on the comic book of the same name by Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr. The film tells the story of an ordinary teenager, Dave Lizewski, who sets out to become a real-life superhero, calling himself “Kick-Ass”. Dave gets caught up in a bigger fight when he meets Big Daddy, a former cop who, in his quest to bring down the drug lord Frank D’Amico, has trained his eleven-year-old daughter to be the ruthless vigilante Hit-Girl.”
In theaters August 16, 2013.
