Giving cinematic praise where it's due. Raining down hellfire where it's not.

Kick-Ass 2 (2013)
A huge disappointment after such an entertaining original. The style and tone are all wrong. The dry, dark humor has been replaced with cheesy quips and teen clichés. The violence in the first was shockingly brutal. Here it’s cartoony and ridiculously over-the-top. CGI effects look bottom dollar. That van scene was the worst. I forgive Chloe for being a part of this project. I’m sure it was contractual.
