'Kick-Ass 2' looks at consequences of vigilante violence
Los Angeles: After a summer dominated by superheroes fighting evil and winning over audiences at the box office, 'Kick-Ass 2' aims to show the violent underside of being a costumed vigilante.
"The sequel is set up to deal with the consequences," director Jeff Wadlow told Reuters.
'Kick-Ass 2', out in theaters on Friday, is based on Mark Millar's comic-book of the same name and follows the nerdy teenage boy Dave, played by British actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson, as he becomes real-life superhero Kick-Ass, along with his 15-year-old sidekick Hit Girl, played by Chloe Moretz.
"The superhero movement has spread and people were inspired by Kick-Ass and I wanted to show all the different kinds of consequences these characters doing these things and how it ripples through their life," Wadlow said.
Kick-Ass and Hit Girl, also known as Mindy, dispensed with villainous drug lord Frank D'Amico in the first film and in 'Kick-Ass 2', D'Amico's ruthless son Chris, played by Christopher Mintz-Plasse, wages revenge on the masked crusaders with his own team of super-villains.
The sequel, which is rated R like the original movie, has come under fire for its graphic violence and explicit language.
