"KICK-ASS 2." Oh yeah.

The first "Kick-Ass" is a movie that grows in quality every time I see it (which, by the way, is the EXACT opposite effect the original comic had) a rare and near-perfect mix of hard-R satire and genuinely sincere coming-of-age comedy. This now-trailered sequel? I'm onboard. Here's hoping the "great movie based on intermittently mediocre and mean-spirited book" streak continues...

Main thoughts: Holy CRAP! Jim Carrey showed up to work as "Col. Stars N' Stripes!" Whole thing seems to be striking the original's flawless balance between "these people are idiots!" and "this is awesome!" Gotta love a movie whose main antagonist's name can't be said in the ad-copy (outside of this reb-band trailer.)
