Kick-ass 2

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - MOVIES -

Lo-fi su­per­hero Kick-Ass – first the sub­ject of a block­buster comic se­ries then a cult 2010 film – re­turns to bumble through a sec­ond round of vi­o­lent mis­ad­ven­tures. Jim Car­rey joins the cast as an ea­ger-beaver crime­fighter in­spired by Kick-Ass. Di­rected by Jeff Wad­low ( Never Back Down). They say: Most US re­view­ers sorely missed the orig­i­nal film’s cheeky wit and in­ven­tive style, writ­ing off the se­quel as a nasty re­hash miss­ing ex­actly the ele­ments that made its pre­de­ces­sor sing. (Re­port, Page 9.) Wesay: Devotees of the first film may as well go along for the ride, but it’s hard not to be dis­ap­pointed see­ing such a promis­ing premise sold short. Run­ning time 103 min­utes. Screens at Pa­cific Fair, Aus­tralia Fair, Robina, Coolan­gatta, Har­bour Town, Tweed City, Nerang, Yatala Drive-in.
