Kick-Ass 2: Chan’s Movie Review

Let me preface this by saying the last time I saw Kick-Ass was when it was in theaters… which was in April 2010.  I wasn’t 100% on all the details (read: maybe ~5%) but I did remember I enjoyed it greatly, so I wanted to see Kick-Ass 2. The way this movie starts off makes […]
