Re: Kick Ass 2 announcement coming soon - Part 1
I saw it last night, and loved it!
Like the first film, I felt it was much better than the comic it was based on.
I must agree with an earlier comment that they gave Jim Carrey just the right amount of screentime, and he did really good with it.
The changes they made from the source material worked quite well (i.e. changing Insect- Man's character, giving Night- ***** more of a role, and expanding Chris's role and how he became a true villain).
The scenes with Mindy were great, and the fight scenes were all wonderfully choreographed. Mother Russia was absolutely perfect and many of the film's highlights were the scenes involving her.
I surprisingly liked the music a lot too, especially the cover of 'When the Saints go Marching In' played when Justice Forever is busting up the trafficker's poker game and the guitar riff of the 'Tetris' theme played during Mother Russia's rampage.
