Angelina Jolie is back in top gun-toting ass-kicking form in this action packed spy movie which is fast-paced edge of seat stuff, but unfortunately it gets a little lost in the chaos leaving many unanswered questions, but hey, maybe I’m just being picky.
As a ardent fan of the series I was excitingly taken away with the novelty of the first film but was disappointingly let down. However, all is forgiven, as this sequel brings back a little of the girls we love so well while, at the same time, allowing them to evolve.
With breathtaking scenery, thrills and blood spills galore this film could have been the next Gladiator but sadly there was just too much carnage during the non-stop fight or flight scenes, not enough development of characters, and a less than impressive ending.
High-school geeks dressing up in ugly wet suits and calling themselves super heroes was not my idea of a great movie but I’m glad to say that, this time, I was oh so wrong, as Kick-Ass well, kicked ass.

Honourable, brave, decisive, and a fierce love for his country, these are all the qualities of the very complicated and heroic Col Claus Von Stauffenberg who dared to attempt to assassinate Adolf Hitler, however, Tom Cruise’s performance takes away from the otherwise good plot line.
