Reception[edit]

Heather Phares of Allmusic gave the album a mixed review, comparing it negatively to the original film's soundtrack and noting the soundtrack's lack of flow. She positively noted that it "echoes Kick-Ass' mix of tender and violent music" and called it "a collection with so much energy that its more scattered moments barely matter."[4]
