Picture from Kick-Ass 2

Despite having no super powers, Dave Lizewski (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) continues to dress in a costume and tries to take down criminals (like in the prequel Kick-Ass). Amazingly he meets others with similar fantasies (Chloë Grace Moretz, Jim Carrey)! And just in time because some old enemies are making new plans against him.

MPAA Rating: R for strong violence, pervasive language, crude and sexual content, and brief nudity.
