Despite actor Jim Carrey, who gives an amusing cameo performance in the R-rated action-comedy, "Kick-Ass 2", trashing the film before its North American release, director Jeff Wadlow's slick and satirical superhero comic book adaptation sequel, continues to gain momentum among fans, boosted by another winning performance by teenage actress Chloë Grace Moretz as the masked vigilante 'Hit-Girl'.
The sight of Moretz as 15-year old Hit-Girl, blossoming from a foul-mouthed punk kid in director Matthew Vaughn's first film, to a teenage femme fatale that lays down the law in equal measure to vicious criminals and high school bullies in "Kick-Ass 2", brings the hope of a third "Kick-Ass" film, starring Moretz as a seasoned woman crime-fighter in her twenties:
"When we last saw 'Hit-Girl' and vigilante 'Kick-Ass', they were trying to live as normal teenagers 'Mindy' and 'Dave'.
"With graduation looming and uncertain what to do, Dave decides to start the world’s first superhero team with Mindy.
"Unfortunately, when Mindy is busted for sneaking out as Hit-Girl, she’s forced to retire...
"...leaving her to navigate the terrifying world of high-school mean girls on her own.
"With no one left to turn to, Dave joins forces with 'Justice Forever', run by 'Colonel Stars and Stripes' (Carrey).
"Just as they start to make a real difference on the streets, the world’s first super villain, the stupidly inept 'Mother F*****', assembles his own evil league...
"...putting a plan in motion to make Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl pay for what they did to his mobster dad.
"But there’s only one problem with his scheme: If you mess with one member of Justice Forever, you mess with them all..."
