In the scathing review “Who’d like a witless, mean-spirited sequel?” by Ty Burr the reader is met with a short and fiery response. When this ranger comes out guns blazing at high noon, get out of the line of fire.

Burr completely annihilates and fully buries his cinematic enemy Kick-Ass 2 with short summary, direct discussion, and deadly metaphors. Likening the film to arrested teens and turnips, this review provides the reader with a quick look into the film on a surface level. The nasty shots taken point blank at the film are highly entertaining, the only problem is not having access to the entirety of the review.

Unless you are a current subscriber to the website in which this review is posted, you will not be able to access the rest of this sharp tongued review. This takes a deep gouge into the overall presentation of the review, seeing as the entire review is hardly even presented.

This leaves the reader frustrated over a possibly relevant and well worded review, unreachable unless jumps through subscription hoops are made. Overall, a duel that would have been worth watching is mostly lost among the complexities of website red tape. The first four weeks are only $. 99.  After that, it’s anybody’s guess.
