Action/Adventure, Comedy

"This isn't a comic book—this is real life" is a sentiment that's echoed more than once in this sequel to Matthew Vaughn's gnarly/nutty, 2010 adaptation of Mark Millar's satirical, superhero comic. Unfortunately, the movie is streaming with too much cartoony bullshit for that line to carry any real gravitas. This installment has the same problem the first one had: it takes nearly an hour for things to get remotely interesting. Thankfully, Christopher Mintz-Plasse's bratty bad-guy wannabe is still around, often giving the movie an obnoxiously funny jolt whenever he appears. Yeah, all the comic-book carnage on display will certainly get fanboys moist—and that's about it.
