Toomey’s “Review: Kick-Ass 2” Is Too Preoccupied With Tangents

In response to Matthew Toomey’s 673‑word review of Kick-Ass 2 on ABC Radio Brisbane

By ,

Matthew Toomey’s “Review: Kick-Ass 2” checks in with a review that is the opposite of a show-stopper. This review has nothing that sets it above the rest; instead, it finds itself bogged down by tangents and lack of creativity.

Toomey’s attempt at a fresh angle in this review falls short of clever. Readers are subjected to reading tangents Toomey wrongly feels are necessary. This review’s initial assumption that the audience is in the know with regard to the first film is a fatal misstep.

Toomey’s numerous subplots prove to be too burdensome for this review. Readers must wade through his random points regarding the language involved in this movie and how it will affect his respective company’s position in discussing it. Toomey loses sight that his readers either A) will not know what he is going on about and B) will not care the slightest bit.

Just when audiences think another tangent couldn’t possibly be thrown into the mix—BAM!—another tangent regarding an actor’s personal reaction to the movie.

Toomey’s attempts to make his tangents tie in with his review fail miserably. The only aspect on point during his tangents are his occasional spoilers, sans alerts. Readers should steer clear of this review full of words yet devoid of meaning.
