Bill Gibron’s Turns in a Lackluster Performance With “KICK-ASS 2”

In response to Bill Gibron’s 647‑word review of Kick-Ass 2 on Film Racket

By ,

Bill Gibron’s “KICK-ASS 2” is, at best, an average review. There are no gimmicks, no fancy sentence constructions—instead just a slow, steady stream of words that do little to ignite the excitement of readers.

The opening act is no different than many other reviews of this film: a rehashing of the first film.  Gibron is hopeful in his tone when he tackles Kick-Ass 2, yet he quickly settles into revealing spoilers. The upside to this, however, is that while he mentions the “what” of what happens, he doesn’t tell the readers the “when they actually happen” part.

There are moments where it seems like the reader will get a healthy dose of newness but it backfires when the reviewer drags on and on through the plot line.

Gibron gives his verdict of the film in the end but it lacks substance. He spends so much time explaining the plot and leaves his final decision feeling lackluster.

There is a slew of various items the readers can peruse at their leisure on the webpage itself. A bold star rating is visible and a hint of humor with one of the movie images will pique the curiosities of the readers but Gibron should have invested much more time on a more thorough analysis rather than a play-by-play of the movie.
