Kick Butt 2

Posted by The Dandy Automaton , Aug 21 2013 · 101 views

So earlier today I went to see Kick Rump 2. I was glad to have been invited out because it broke the long monotony that comes from putting off writing in favour of watching people kick and shout at each other over menial things on Tumblr. I wasn't so sure about Kick Backside 2 because I'd seen the first one and hadn't particularly enjoyed it. It wasn't a bad film by any means but it certainly wasn't anything to write home to about. It just felt like a schizophrenic movie that couldn't decide whether it wanted to be a commentary on superhero movies, a parody of superhero movies or join in with the big boys and be a superhero movie. Maybe I just wasn't in the right mindset when I watched it? I can't tell for sure because I've yet to rewatch it. If I ever will. I don't really see a reason to.
 
Now, why do I mention my early watching of Kick Flank? Because I just wanted to stress that for all the faults of the first film that may or may not have carried over from its predecessor (sins of the father and all that), Kick Hindquarters 2 is an absolute must-see. For certain people.
 
It was fun, funny and...funtastic? I don't know. I wanted a triad there but it doesn't really work. Either way, it was good. Hilarious at times, and satisfying just because it's over the top and enjoyably so. But it's not for everyone and even at times parts not for me. If you're not a fan of huge amounts of violence and the glorification of it, it's best to stay away. As I said, Kick Bottom 2 rarely holds back. It's good to see a fight in a superhero movie showing that if you're battling against two large people, chances are you're going to get beaten up, but it can get visceral and brutal. And there's one scene in particular that springs to mind that would entice me to warn the sensitive to steer clear.
 
So that's my summary. Kick Posterior 2 is brilliant, fun, hilarious film with an affection for violence teetering on the crazed. Also I am a sucker for scenes where crowds gather behind the protagonist to offer their support, so that might have won me over.
 
P.S. Also are White House Down and Olympus Has Fallen the same movie or do filmmakers just really have it in for the White House right now?

if its the scene im thinking of, its actually worse in the comics from what ive heard. like they actually do it in the comics instead of subverting it like in the movie :x

 

but yeah it was pretty enjoyable. normally i wouldnt be all for the graphicness of it but it all seemed so silly and over the top that it somehow looped back around and i mostly liked it (aside from uh. those certain really nasty parts :x)

 

also, i love how youre avoiding the actual title by using as many synonyms as you can lmao
