I actually thought this movie was decent but a unneed sequel.


After this movie bombed at theaters, there hasnt been any word on the planned X-force movie since.

Loved the first one. Hated the second one. Wadlow is no Vaughn.

Not as good as the first, but it certainly had it's moments, still enjoyed it so might pick this up, but in no rush to do so.

What are the chances of a third now? Would still like to see one, but don't see them rushing to put it out

The movie was a big surprise for me. I enjoyed the hell out of it and I currently find it more rewatchable than the first. Though I will miss Nic Cage's presence, I need that portrait of him in Kick-Ass 2 on my wall.
