Kick Ass 2 (Red Band Trailer #1) Review

Yes the sequel has a trailer! And it’s a red band! I am happy. I loved the first one and have now read the comics so I am really looking forward to this film. We will be getting a load of great new characters and I am sure it will have the same dark humour and violence that made the first one so unique. Chloë Grace Moretz looks fantastic as hit girl, Aaron Taylor Johnson is ripped as Kick Ass, Chris Mintz Plasse as haha The Mother Fucker is just too funny, but for me the show is stolen by Jim Carrey playing Colonel Stars and Stripes he looks great in the role and he doesn’t act anything like Jim Carrey which in this role is fantastic. The sequel looks action packed with the super-heroes up against the Super-villains it can only be more explosive. I hope you all have views on the trailer and voice them plus if you are wondering what the music is from when ‘This Summer’ comes on screen, it’s from Dredd.

Kick Ass 2 - Banner

My Score: A


When we last saw junior assassin Hit Girl and young vigilante Kick-Ass, they were trying to live as normal teenagers Mindy and Dave. With graduation looming and uncertain what to do, Dave decides to start the world’s first superhero team with Mindy. Unfortunately, when Mindy is busted for sneaking out as Hit Girl, she’s forced to retire—leaving her to navigate the terrifying world of high-school mean girls on her own. With no one left to turn to, Dave joins forces with Justice Forever, run by a born-again ex-mobster named Colonel Stars and Stripes.

Just as they start to make a real difference on the streets,  the world’s first super villain, The Mother F%&*^r, assembles his own evil league and puts a plan in motion to make Kick-Ass and Hit Girl pay for what they did to his dad. But there’s only one problem with his scheme: If you mess with one member of Justice Forever, you mess with them all.

Top 5 Scenes

5. Hit Girl Riding a Van

Kick Ass 2 - Hit Girl Riding a Van

It’s pretty kick ass riding a van and spouting the line “game on cock suckers”. To be honest I just like watching Chloë Grace Moretz do any ultra-violent action scenes because she looks like such an innocent girl but she kicks ass and takes names and I love it.

4. Jim Carrey as Colonel Stars and Stripes

Kick Ass 2 - Jim Carrey as Colonel Stars and Stripes

I had my doubts at Jim Carrey playing the Colonel. I thought he might just look and act the way he normally does and whilst funny it just wouldn’t fit this role. Thankfully though he looks great in the role with some fantastic face prophetics and even sounds different which just feels more real. His take is already fooling me into believing he is the character which I really like.

3. Heroes vs. Villains

Kick Ass 2 - Heroes vs. Villains

There must be 50+ people in that warehouse ready to fight each other. Both good and bad facing off in one room I can’t imagine it not being a fantastic scene even without a fight the dialogue and atmosphere would be interesting to see. Side note we get to see a full view of Mother Russia even if it is a bit blurry in the distance.

2. Kick Ass with Armour

Kick Ass 2 - Kick Ass with Armour

That costume looks like a blend between the Big Daddy costume and Kick Asses costume, I may be wrong but that’s what it looks like. Either way it looks cool, and with him being bloody and having that concerned look on his face would also suggest a good battle in the film. I wait eagerly.

1. Yeah There’s a Dog on Your Balls

Kick Ass 2 - Yeah There’s a Dog on Your Balls

Hands down the best way this trailer could have ended. That laugh is fantastic! We also get to see Sofia (The Dog), eat a criminal’s genitals, keeping with the story of the comics. It’s a great role and I hope Carrey does it justice as I am sure he will.

  1. Reel Ex-Stream says :

    I can’t wait for this one! I really liked the first film a lot. There was just enough over the top violence and grittiness about that first film that made it fun. The sequel looks like it could be just as fun. Jim Carrey should be great, the trailer made it look as though he had a good time playing his character. Looking forward to when this hits theaters.


    • Tim The Film Guy says :

      Glad to hear, obviously I feel the same. I do have a fear without Vaughn that the film won’t have the same feel but after seeing the trailer and Carrey’s brilliant performance my fears are dwindling 😀

      Thanks for commenting 😀

    I’m going to read the comics soon, then watch the trailer later. I didn’t recognize Carrey in the photos at first.


  8. The Vern says :

    I think Chole Grace Moretz is just a tad too old to be Hit Girl , but yeah I will check this one out. It looks just as awesome as the first one


  9. atothewr says :

    Can’t wait for this. The first one, well, kicked ass, and this one looks like it will as well. Great review.

    Tim that trailer looks amazing and I did not even realize that was Carey until someone else pointed it out to me. Say do you follow the comic series?

    Looks just as awful as the first. 😉


  12. filmhipster says :

    Can’t wait. I hope it’s as brutally gory as the first and that Carrey doesn’t cheapen it.
