I had mixed feelings about the first Kick-Ass film. I liked that it was showing what would really happen if someone actually decided to put on a costume and fight crime... but then the movie seemed to break its own rules when Hit Girl showed up. The sight of a little kid beating up grown men, doing back flips and reloading her guns in mid-air was anything but realistic and did not jibe with the vibe that had been set up. I have since watched the movie again and since I was ready for this, I wound up enjoying it a lot more the second time around. I'm not sure what to expect from the sequel, as I did not read the comics adaptation (a bit on the violent side for my tastes), but the brief footage I have seen so far looks interesting - even if they have left reality completely behind at this point.
