Has anyone seen kick-ass 2?, i was thinking of catching it at some point next week, it looks pretty decent, and i loved the first one. Just wanna hear if the second one is as good.


You can find a 20 second post-credit scene of KickAss 2 on Youtube.
Which may hint at another sequel.


But, if you like surprises, you probably shouldn't watch it.

That's what I thought too initially, but I think they tried to explain it away by saying the station was somehow prohibited from attacking oncoming ships, so it wouldn't have any defense capabilities.  The movie had little plot points like this that affected how the rest of the movie would turn out.  Kind of weak.

It wasn't believable to me because they didn't add any special effects to it.  Maybe if they made it into a mini two-stage rocket, that would have been better.

An open atmosphere station is a bit of interesting tech that will never be built to its massive size and costs, I suppose.


Another thing from the Elysium movie that bugged me was the shoulder mounted rocket launcher (RPG?) that was able to shoot down a spaceship in lower Earth orbit.  That sounds very implausible to me, even in the realm of Sci-Fi.

I was wondering if the Elysium space station was based off of this:


Open Air Space Habitats



High atmospheric walls are built to prevent the atmosphere gases from leaking.
