Yeah!, the website from AMC Networks that has movie rentals on demand, is offering the 2010 movie "Kick-Ass" with new and additional commentary from "Kick-Ass" co-star Christopher Mintz-Plasse and "Kick-Ass" creator Mark Millar.
"Kick-Ass 2" was released in the U.S. and Canada on Aug. 15, 2013. According to Box Office Mojo, "Kick-Ass 2" had $13.57 million in ticket sales and opened at No. 3. That number is far below the $19.8 million debut for the first "Kick-Ass" movie.
"Kick-Ass" tells the story of nerdy, bullied teen Dave Lizewski (played by Aaron Johnson) who decides to create a crime-fighting superhero alter ego named Kick-Ass. He is joined in his superhero endeavors by foul-mouthed girl Mindy Macready, also known as Hit-Girl (played by Chloe Grace Moretz), and geeky rich kid Chris D'Amico, also known as Red Mist (played by Mintz-Plasse).
In "Kick-Ass 2," Chris has turned to the dark side and is out for revenge against Kick-Ass because of the death of Chris' criminal father. Hit-Girl, now an orphan whose guardian is a cop (played by Morris Chestnut), keeps changing her mind about whether or not she wants to continue to be Hit-Girl. So Kick-Ass joins a group of other vigilantes dressed as superheroes.
"Kick-Ass" and "Kick-Ass 2" have gotten very different reactions not just from audiences but also from critics. Whereas "Kick-Ass" was critically acclaimed (with a 77 percent approval rating from critics on Rotten Tomatoes), "Kick-Ass 2" was critically panned (with 28 percent approval rating from Rotten Tomatoes). A few months before "Kick-Ass 2" was released, co-star Jim Carrey announced on Twitter that he no longer condones the violence in the movie and that he decided he would not promote "Kick-Ass 2."
