Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that, like the original Kick-Ass, Kick-Ass 2 is insanely violent, taking comic book carnage to new heights. Viewers see many deaths, spurting blood, stabbings with pool cues and broken glass, shootings, and heavy fighting, punching, pummeling, and slamming of bodies. Language is also extremely strong, riddled with "f--k" and "s--t," as well as tons of sexual innuendo. (Characters are actually named "The Motherf----r" and "Night Bitch.") Hit Girl, who was 11 in the first movie, is now 15, so it's not quite as shocking when she participates in all this. But this time she becomes aware of sex for the first time, which is suggested in various ways. The older Kick-Ass has sex with a girl hero, and two topless women are shown. Bottom line? It's far more intense than your typical superhero movie and definitely not for kids.

Sexual Content

Hit Girl, now 15, becomes interested in sex for the first time. Watching a boy band video with three other girls, the movie hints that she becomes aroused for the first time (though she doesn't seem to know what just happened). She has the same reaction when she sees the shirtless (now ripped) Kick-Ass. Two topless women are shown in one scene and are said to be prostitutes. Some references to/suggested masturbation. Kick-Ass kisses and has sex with a girl superhero in a bathroom stall; feet and the tops of heads are all that's visible. Female characters wear revealing costumes, and "The Motherf----r" wears an S&M-style costume. Auditioning for the cheer squad, a teen girl does a sexy "pole dance"-type routine. Sexual innuendo and sexual humor are very strong throughout.

Violence

The frequent, pervasive violence is of the over-the-top, fantasy, comic-book fighting variety, but it gets pretty brutal (with loud punching, pummeling, and falling) and does include gore -- such as spurting blood from heads, stomachs, and feet. Minor characters are brutally run over and destroyed by speeding cars. Characters are stabbed to death with pool cues and bits of broken glass, as well as shot and killed and decapitated. A character is fried inside a tanning booth. A character is devoured by a shark, with clouds of blood in the water. A man is strangled, and a gory photograph of the body is shown. Women are beaten up. Someone's testicles are chewed by a dog. Teen girls are shown violently vomiting and with diarrhea.

Language

Language is extremely strong, with heavy sexual innuendo. Characters are actually named "The Motherf----r," and "Night Bitch." Words used include (but aren't limited to) "f--k," "s--t," "c--t," "c--k," "c--ksucker," "p---y," "a--hole," "gash," "d--k," "balls," "bitch," "t-ts," "prick," "hell," "damn," "f----t," "penis," "rim job," "knob," "douche," "goddamn," "Jesus Christ," "oh my God," and, of course, "ass." Also plenty of belittling insults, such as "loser" and "nerd."

Social Behavior

Although one of the movie's messages is that you don't need a costume to be a hero -- all you need is to be brave -- any positive take-away is secondary to the extremely violent and vulgar content. A sequence set in a high school is riddled with sex, as if to say that teen girls must be sexy and sex-savvy to succeed in the world. (Although this could also be a parody of the same idea; it's unclear.)

Consumerism

In one scene set in a convenience store, The Motherf----r shoots up several refrigerators full of Pepsi cans, with several close-ups of exploding cans. Mention of Mountain Dew. The movie is part of a popular comic book franchise.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

A character's mother is seen pouring some vodka into a pitcher, and that's about it. No other drinking, smoking, or drugs -- though Hit Girl does take an injection of adrenaline during the final fight.
