Finally, finally, FINALLY! I have been waiting for the bloody trailer for Kick-Ass 2 for ages, I just wanted to see some form of footage to see what kind of film we were gonna get with this sequel. The first film was a largely successful prequel film adaptation of the Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr. comic book, even if it was a little overhyped in my opinion, so know we have the sequel’s first trailer and to be honest while it’s interesting it doesn’t make me jump for the skies in excitement.
Anyways if you haven’t taken a look at the trailer have a look below:
So what can we see here? Well I know what I saw. It was an interesting trailer with moments of awesomeness however this trailer wasn’t all that fancy to me. From what I can see here we’re picking up right where we left off in the last film, Kick-Ass saved the day and he’s still running around and kicking ass, his crazy actions have even inspired other crazy people to start parading around in costumes too.The trailer also reintroduces us to Hit Girl who has a school life to deal with, but also has to train Kick-Ass too and she can still dish out the pain as well. Yay. And then there’s appearance of Colonel Stars and Stripes who adds some new flavour to this masked superhero scene and of course Red Mist know as The Mother F%&*^r (Mother Fucker for those who hadn’t guessed) and you have a recipe for chaos and good times with violence.
The humour still seems to be intact straight from the beginning, Hit-Girl and Kick-Ass still seem to have their funny moments together and the addition of Jim Carrey is definitely looking interesting. This is a very different character from anything I’ve seen him in before especially when it comes to his voice, it sounds to different. And The Mother F%&*^r just look great, Christopher Mintz-Plasse is normally great in all the roles he’s in so I can’t wait to see what kind of evil and humour he’ll bring to this sequel. In terms of the fighting and violence it looks like there will be plenty of that with flipping and kicking and some crazy set pieces including Hit-Girl attacking people from on top of a van! Damn she’s hardcore. It also looks like the people in masks are in trouble because the police are after them and it also looks like Kick-Ass’ dad found out who he is already (which must happen in this film because there was no indication of that before).
Now I’ve watched the trailer twice now and it seems cool but I’m probably either gonna wait for another one or just wait until the summer to see Kick-Ass 2 in full to pass judgment, I liked the first one here’s hoping that this one is better.
