I absolutely loved the first Kick-Ass movie. It had just the right mix of comedy and action. Now comes the first trailer to the sequel, Kick-Ass 2. While the director of the first film, Matthew Vaughn, has been replaced by Jeff Wadlow, the cast is all back. There are also a few new comers to the party. Check out the trailer below and my thoughts after.
What do you think of Jim Carrey joining the party? Pretty cool huh? A little bit different from what I've ever seen him in and I'm OK with that! I like the action and premise, but I have to admit, the tone feels different. And tone is very important in these genre films. Remember, Kick-Ass is just a normal kid who decided to dress up like a superhero. There's nothing really all that 'super' about him. So it can't be TOO crazy. It has to stay grounded. I hope the movie doesn't veer too far off the path that Vaughn started. For now, I like it. But I need another trailer to decide if I love it. Check back for updates.
