Writer-director Jeff Wadlow (Cry_Wolf) has fast-tracked his way into the comic book super-lottery. He takes over the helm of Mark Millar’s Kick-Ass graphic novel, capturing the further adventures of high schooler Dave Lizewski (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) as he juggles everyday teen geek life with his nocturnal escapades as a brawling hero with an even younger — and far more deadly — sidekick (Chloë Grace Moretz). The second time around things get more complicated as a host of costumed vigilantes arrive on the scene, drawing out a plethora of masked villains, led by the revenge-driven Chris D’Amico (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), aka The Motherf*****. There will be some major butt kicking. Now in theaters. (R) Not screened in time for review
