Kick-Ass Star Responds to Jim Carrey’s Criticism of the Upcoming Sequel
Two month’s ago Jim Carrey, one of the newest editions to the Kick-Ass silver screen legacy, expressed his distaste with how the film reflected some explicit violence. One of the biggest draws to the first installment was the extreme and sometimes ridiculous violence peppered throughout the film. And if you happen to be a fan of the source material you know that the comic is just as outlandish as the movie, if not more.
Through Twitter, Carey admitted:
I did Kickass a month b4 Sandy Hook and now in all good conscience I cannot support that level of violence. My apologies to e

For the most part members of the movie and the creator behind it all, Mark Millar, felt that Carrey was more than entilted to speak his opinion. But co-star Chloe Mortez had a little more to say on the films substance. While speaking to U.K.’s Sun, Mortez said,
“If you are that easily swayed, you might see ‘The Silence of the Lambs’ and think you are a serial killer. It’s a movie and it’s fake, and I’ve known that since I was a kid … I don’t want to run around trying to kill people and cuss. If anything, these movies teach you what not to do.”
Carrey’s younger co-star does have a decent point. We all draw our own line when it comes to things like this but fiction does belong in an entirely different box. Nevertheless, these types of discussions will always lie within the eye of the beholder.
