Much like his movies, Tarantino has a very unique and personal sensibility, which is part of the reason why his movies are so unique.

The two major things missing from Kick-Ass 2 constitute the two major problems with an otherwise decent sequel. Those things are Matthew Vaughn and Jane Goldman. Vaughn, who directed Kick-Ass in 2010, is an incredibly talented director. Goldman, who wrote the first film, is a fantastic screenwriter. They both return as producers this time around, but their respective duties have taken over by Jeff Wadlow, the director of Cry_Wolf and Never Back Down. Wadlow has an obvious passion for this material and does an admirable job at times. Without Vaughn directing Goldman’s words, however, Kick-Ass 2 never comes close to the energy and smarts of the first movie.
That said, fans of the original will enjoy all the new characters, the many tense/violent situations, and the uptempo, fun pacing. Kick-Ass 2 doesn’t reach the dizzying heights of the first movie, but in the realm of flawed sequels, it’s pretty entertaining. Read More »
