Review: Kick-Ass 2

Kick-Ass_2_Poster1

“Kick-Ass 2” rocks more than enough polished and highly engaging sequences to entice you to overlook its minor identity crisis.

Dave, Mindy, and Chris (Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloë Grace Moretz, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse) are back, but now they’re older and have different agendas. Dave is determined to make due on the Kick-Ass hype by teaming up with a league of superheroes to really make a difference. Mindy, on the other hand, is hanging up her wig and weapons to appease Marcus (Morris Chestnut). Since Big Daddy’s passing, Marcus has been her legal guardian and is determined to keep her safe all costs, and Mindy feels obligated to respect that.

Meanwhile, Red Mist is long gone and Chris is busy channeling his rage over his father’s death into his new persona, the villainous Motherf%&*^r. With the help of Javier (John Leguizamo) and his family’s bank account, The Motherf%&*^r assembles the ultimate team of vicious thugs so he can take Kick-Ass out once and for all.

The Must-Have Movie Toys of Summer 2013

toystoysHalf the fun of summer blockbusters is going to see them. The other half is getting to own pieces of them. With many fan favorites in circulation and still more to come, you better start divvying up your resources and figuring out which summer movie toys are the must-haves.

Iron Man 3

As the biggest opener of summer 2013, Iron Man 3 toys are an absolute must. As someone with a soft spot for hurling harmless foam discs at friends and family, the Iron Man 3 Gauntlet Disc Blaster is a winner. Then, to ramp up your innocent assault, slip on the Iron Man 3 Mission Mask, which not only packs the power to fire four missiles, but let’s you aim them using a targeting light beam, too.

kickass2video1Growing up means three very different things to Dave Lizewski (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), Mindy Macready (Chloë Grace Moretz) and Chris D’Amico (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) in Kick-Ass 2.

The Best – and Worst – Movie Trailers of the Week

Kick-Ass-2Star Trek Into Darkness makes another strong play, delivering a brand-new teaser trailer that’s equally as thrilling as the rest. But even though the piece achieves an equivalent level of proficiency and excitement, it’s still the same in a sense, leaving room for three fresher feeling trailers to slip their way into this week’s Best Stuff.

The Best Stuff

1. Kick-Ass 2Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl are back, and this time around they’ve got an entire brigade of superheroes (sans superpowers) behind them. The plot follows the expected progression towards Red Mist-turned-Motherf***er’s revenge, but brings the series to a whole new level, loading up on striking costumes, highlighting far more intense battle sequences and expanding the cast with a variety of new characters, most notably a pleasantly less recognizable Jim Carrey as Colonel Stars and Stripes.
