Villains Beware -- Kick-Ass is Back!

It was no big budget blockbuster-- but the first Kick-Ass movie really, well, kicked ass. The sleeper, which came out in 2010, got rave reviews for its true grit and is now firmly ensconced in hip pop culture. It was irreverent, it was tongue-in-cheek, and it was definitely violent. The no-holds barred movie featured bloody noses and gory deaths, and the audiences worldwide loved it!

Well lanky Dave Lizewski is back, via Kick-Ass 2, and this time he and the awesomely cool masked crusader Mindy Macready or Hit-Girl are joined by other crime-fighting wannabes. These band of costumed misfits form Justice Forever and is led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes -- played by no less than Jim Carrey! He is supposedly a former mobster who changed his ways when he became born-again.

Crimefighters Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl

So what's a superhero movie without villains, right? Well first up, Mist is still very much around and has sworn vengeance on the two who are responsible for his dad's demise. He has evolved into an even meaner version, calling himself The Mother F5&^r (boy, what a difference a name makes, huh? Mist just sounds so girly). This baddie forms a league of his own and they start to terrorize the streets.

More troubles come  when Hit-Girl is "outed" and cannot fight crime incognito anymore. instead of fighting baddies, she is reduced to living a normal life of a teenager among school bullies.

Will hot Hit-Girl be forced to hang up her purple wig? Will Kick-Ass keep the streets safe once more? find out at the regular theater screenings of Kick-Ass 2 this August. Kick-Ass 2 is released and distributed by United International Pictures through Solar Entertainment Corporation.
