Kick-Ass 2, Dir. by Jeff Wadlow

As played by Chloe Grace Moretz, Mindy McReady/Hit-Girl is a terrific character. She threw everyone for a loop in 2010’s Kick Ass, where she played a foul-mouthed little brat who kicked some serious ass. She delivers some great lines in the film’s sequel; it’s just too bad so much of the ultraviolent film focuses on her coming-of-age. Though fun, Kick Ass 2 isn’t as fun as its predecessor, perhaps in part because Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage), who died in Kick-Ass is no longer around, and Hit-Girl’s surrogate father Marcus (Morris Chestunt) is essentially a non-entity. Still, the showdown between Chris D’Amico/Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), who has rechristened himself “The Mother Fucker,” and Dave Lizewski/Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) is a classic scene worth slogging through the rest of the film.
