By ,

This review written by Ali Arikan titled “Kick-Ass 2” is not for the faint of heart due to the sheer magnitude of both its opinion and length. Attention to every reader with a short attention span, quickly back away from this review and find the information you need from a faster resource.

This review is laced full of tangents, so disguised within the text that it takes several minutes to realize that what you are reading has nothing to do with the film at hand. Take it from someone who already waded through this thickly worded forest of a review, you don’t want to even attempt to step foot into it.

You can make it through, but you will emerge an old and weathered individual and as you look back will realize how utterly wasted your time was trying to finish the elaborate entanglement of digressions this review consists of.  

The way the review is worded cannot be argued against. Ali Arikan can write, and write well, which can be seen in the volumes he left for the readers on this specific film. The arguments he attempts to make are valid, they just happen to be buried beneath layers and layers of overkill. Arikan has talent, but too much of a good thing, in this case, kills the review.
