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.

i have seen the film!(yesterday night)

 

i'm ganna pre-face this with spoiler tags, as it has a few that i can't really get around with giving my opinion of the film:

 

[spoiler]

it was pretty decent, although i have a bit mixed-feelings with it.  while i liked the concept of superhero's vs supervillians in a more real world setting....i had a few quips, a couple of the major plot points(mostly mindy's) was dragged out waayy too long imo.  I also thought it went over the top in being perverted, and it could have been toned back a bit without losing the overall impact.  at other times, it seemed like the movie was going one direction(such as training dave), and then does an 180 on itself.  their was also a bit left up in the air(such as chris's mob family telling him to stay low, then he goes and murders a ton of cops), maybe that'll be touched in the third film, but idk.

 

since we are in spoiler territory, i'll say this. near the end, i thought that perhaps both of them would die, considering that both have lost their entire family's, it seemed like it would be such a great ending for the type of film this was, questioning how/if superheros/villians could work in the real world, but in the end, everyone dies, good or bad, it would have been a pretty powerful way to end the film imo.

[/spoiler]

 

overall, i'd give it a 7/10, it was enjoyable, a decent sequel, but i think it had a great opportunity to be more.

Your review is pretty funny when you say its over the top perverted. You would not like the comic at all. Also they could hardly do that ending as it would kill the sequel which I assume theyll still push even if Minday wasnt arrested. 

 

Anyway The Way Way Back is the best film of the year so far. So funny, such good acting, writing and just so good. Everyone should see it.

Obilvion - Good Sci Fi. Tom Cruise did a pretty good job in his role. It starts off a bit slow but the pace picks up and it's a steady sweet ride.

 

Oblivion takes ideas from Moon, but other than that it's pretty good....
