I mostly agree with the opinion of the official View review here - http://www.viewwellington.co.nz/films/kick-ass-2-balls-to-the-wall-film-review-31025.html

I remember liking the first film and was expecting a bit of a loss of novelty on the follow up but this is just a pure 'let's cash this one in' type of sequel. I would be very surprised if there's a third one as I can't imagine exhausting this any further.

There are two things that I found most annoying about this film:

1) Total lack of any quality of dialogue. Just because it's a comic book film it doesn't mean that's ok. There are quite a few out there and the have all managed to be way more coherent than this.

2) Misjudgement on target audience - too much swearing and violence to make it for teenagers and a bit too much slapstick (unsuccessful too, I might add) to make it good entertainment for adults. And generally too low class for anyone.
