Strangely, while Kick-Ass 2 is the most poor in terms of craftsmanship, direction, arguably writing (IM3 and The Wolverine's scripts were fairly weak too)...I did have the best time watching it. I laughed throughout. But I do think IM3 and MOS are just better made films without scenes that are just cringe-inducing as for Superman leveling Metropolis and all the 9/11 imagery there. I think Snyder really is oblivious in some ways to what audiences want.

Anyway, it is a curious and perplexing thing, in my opinion.
