Felix Vasquez’ “Kick-Ass 2 (2013) may be unimaginatively titled but don’t let the succinct header fool you, this review has plenty of bite in it.

Not to be outdone by the smorgasbord of fellow reviews echoing the same sentiment, Vasquez assures his audience of the hatred he has for this film from the get go. If you are looking for verbal foreplay you might be a little disappointed, as this review gets right to the action without even warming us up.

The biggest gripe that Vasquez has with the film seems to be the flagrant inconsistencies throughout the film.  He can’t decide whether or not the writers are for or against violence and the frustration is there and it makes itself known very early on.

If Vasquez could have criticized the parents of the filmmaker it would not have come as a shock as most of the performances outside of Chloe Grace-Moretz’ are largely panned.

Surprisingly enough, as previously mentioned, not all is terrible in film land.  Vasquez briefly mentions that the Hitgirl subplot is warranting of a film itself.  But that is at the tail end of this barbed-wired minefield. So the little ray of sunshine does little to inspire anything other than a raised eyebrow.

The review starts off great but by the end of the review you‘ll feel emotionally drained. The negativity seems warranted at least, but that never takes away from the fact that you still have to trudge through a review that is devoid of anything positive. Vasquez’ write-up is definitely worth peeking at just don’t stay too long.
