After Kick-Ass’ insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, he joins a patrol led by the Colonel Stars and Stripes. When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist — reborn as The Mother F%&*^r — only the blade-wielding Hit-Girl can prevent their annihilation.
Although Kick-Ass 2 is just as over-the-top as it’s predecessor, writer-director Jeff Wadlow’s sequel never rarely forgets to keep his characters grounded. The plot follows Hit-Girl/ Mindy Macready (Chloe Moretz) trying to put her previous identity behind her, while Kick-Ass/ Dave Lizewski (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) joins a group of fellow super-hero wannabes, but is unaware that Chris D’Amico/ formerly Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) is plotting revenge with his own gang, under a new name, for the death of his father.
