Another massive red flag was when the movie began with Red Mist killing his mother. Screen writing 101, enter late and leave early. In the original scripts for Empire Strikes Back Darth Vader began the movie in a castle where he is given his quest to find Luke Skywalker and bring him to the darkside. However this was thrown out because the audience isn't going to have a hard time accepting Vaders been looking for Luke after the events of the previous film.
Overall the whole things was just a mess. I was pissed when Matthew Vaughn left the project for X-Men but now that he's not even doing that anymore I'm furious.
You do realize she was messing with the guy right? She even told Dave she had been coming up with lines for such situations.

Not surprised the movie bombed this weekend. This was basically like the DTV sequel to Kick-Ass. Not surprised Vaughn didn't feel inspired enough to come back to do this story.
Vaughn doesn't seem to like the idea of sequels. Left DoFP as well to do Secret Service. Cast already looks strong and hopefully he does get Emma Watson for that.
On another note, This movie can't really "bomb".
