Kick-Ass, the 2010 film adaptation of the Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. comic book directed by Matthew Vaughn, was fantastic.

I’m really excited about it Jim Carrey as Colonel Stars and Stripes. One of the best things about the original film was Nick Cage’s portrayal of Big Daddy. It was the kind of interesting and smart and deceptively subtle performance that we hadn’t seen from Cage in years. It looks like we might get the same kind of thing from Carrey’s demented vigilante.
Kick-Ass 2 hits theaters on August 16, 2013.
