Kick-Ass 2

Toni and I had booked tickets to go and see Kick-Ass 2 at the Cineworld at the O2. We turned up to find that the first pay as you go car park was now closed and as a result the second one was full. Our only option then would have been to pay £11 to park. We decided that this was extortionate and reluctantly headed home, disappointed that we couldn't see the film.

Where there's a will there's a way though and I managed to find a top quality copy online to watch. This was a result and my disappointment was turned to joy!

After Kick-Ass' insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes, our hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist -- reborn as The Mother F%&*^r -- only the blade-wielding Hit Girl can prevent their annihilation. When we last saw junior assassin Hit Girl and young vigilante Kick-Ass, they were trying to live as normal teenagers Mindy and Dave. With graduation looming and uncertain what to do, Dave decides to start the world's first superhero team with Mindy. Unfortunately, when Mindy is busted for sneaking out as Hit Girl, she's forced to retire-leaving her to navigate the terrifying world of high-school mean girls on her own. With no one left to turn to, Dave joins forces with Justice Forever, run by a born-again ex-mobster named Colonel Stars and Stripes. Just as they start to make a real difference on the streets, the world's first super villain, The Mother F%&*^r, assembles his own evil league and puts a plan in motion to make Kick-Ass and Hit Girl pay for what they did to his dad. But there's only one problem with his scheme: If you mess with one member of Justice Forever, you mess with them all.

If you enjoyed the first movie then you'll love the second one. It's not big, it's not clever bit it's a whole load of fun with some real quality moments in there. Catch it quick before the cinema run ends otherwise per-order the DVD/Blu-Ray.
