Jim Carrey Tweets a Change of Heart with Kick-Ass 2

Jim Carrey Kick Ass 2

Earlier today Jim Carrey publicly denounced the violence in his upcoming movie Kick-Ass 2, via Twitter. In the film, Carrey takes on the role of Colonel Stars and Stripes, a new addition to the rag-tag team of vigilantes cleaning up the streets. Kick-Ass was pretty intense as far as violence goes, and I’m sure the sequel will have upped the ante. Still, does it warrant this reaction?

We are all entitled to our own feelings and I can appreciate his change of heart due to the events that transpired at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Still, I don’t quite understand why Carrey would speak out against the film. He stated he wasn’t ashamed of it, so why say anything? An enormous amount of time, money, and effort went into its production; it seems silly and selfish to publicly distance yourself from it. Perhaps it would have been a better PR move to say he was proud of Kick-Ass 2 and all those involved, but would no longer star in films with that level of violence. Maybe I’m just crazy. What do you guys think?

The film also stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloe Grace Moretz, Clark Duke, Donald Faison, John Leguizamo, and Olga Kurkulina. Kick-Ass 2 opens August 16th.

      I think it was an unnecessary slap in the face to everyone involved in the film. You’re right, he should just choose to do less violent films in the future.
