I know it came out a while
ago but did anyone see the movie? I rewatched it for the first time since first seeing it in cinema and I gotta say, it was slightly disappointing. It wasn't near as good as the first one in my opinion (although this was mainly because I hadn't read the comic beforehand for that one, so it was a real surprise to me that the film was so good). The film got far
too ridiculous and unrealistic in the end and kind of ruined the whole premise of it as in 'what would happen if someone tried to be a superhero in real life'. In the end,
good prevails over evil, all is good and not even a single one of the 'super' heroes die (and the only who did was the most skilled one (the Colonel, maybe excluding HitGirl , which doesn't really make sense.
Christopher Mintz-Plasse was pretty good as The Mother Fucker but he wasn't near as evil as he was in the comic.
Although the Colonel's death was rather shocking in the film, it seemed really early and abrupt and it didn't have nearly the same effect as his death did in the comic. (Sure, they didn't have to kill his freakin' dog and put it on his head like in the comic, but at least maybe kill the dog? It's probably evil thing you can do in a movie which is why it'd have been perfect.
Chloe Moretz was amazing as HitGirl again and Aaron Taylor-Johnson was also good and once again put on a pretty good american accent.
Overall, I'd give the film a 6/10 for it's performances and some of it's drama
(Dave's father's death felt horribly sad to watch).
Could have been better imo, in terms of comedy it wasn't even close to as funny as the first.
