Mathew DeKinder’s “Kick-Ass 2” Struggles Early on but Finds Its Way

Mathew DeKinder’s “Kick-Ass 2” is a curious case of two sections that lack excitement and intrigue.

The opening statements of DeKinder are brief, boring and beg the reader to find something else to read. The inexplicable words fail to find a clear early view on the film in general, but resort to loose thoughts on—instead of the main character—the most well-known celebrity in the film.

The inclusion of the actor is relevant, but the description is horrible and almost unreadable. As the reader sails on aboard this sinking ship, it may feel only natural to jump into the sea and hope for the best.

DeKinder clearly knows the content as he picks up the pace and explains his knowledge of the genre film and comic-books. The thoughts become more coherent and organized, despite minor setbacks along the way. At this point, the ship is back on track and the majestic skipper appears to see his target.  

“Kick-Ass 2” is a intriguing piece of work as DeKinder redeems himself in the end with radiant insight. He provides a personal commentary on the social norms of our country, and how the world of cinema shapes our perspectives. I tip my hat to this captain of cinema who found his way on what appeared to be a certain shipwreck.
