Entertaining

Red 2, like the original Red, is not meant to be taken seriously. In many of my other reviews I come down hard for ridiculous plot lines and lack of believability, but this flick was never intended to be taken seriously on any level. It is a comical take on action/spy movies and so it matters not what liberties are taken.

If you enjoy Bruce Willis being Bruce Willis, you like non-stop action and you are in the mood for some mindless entertainment, it is worth a watch. No thinking required.

Personally, I enjoyed the original Red and I like watching the "old codgers" play it up on the action scene. Yes, Helen Mirren is certainly getting old, but she still exudes sex appeal (which has little to do with age or looks) and she is amazingly credible as an action hero. I'd love to see her star in some serious action/spy films.

Malkovich is his usual self and plays a small uninspired role. The surprise for me was Anthony Hopkins. He didn't have too much to do here, but more than I thought. He could have fluffed his way through a film like this, but he took the role as seriously as any other and his performance enhanced the film.

The humor in this one is not side splitting but it works. They could have hit us over the head with tired, old-timer gags but they were smart and didn't really go that route in this sequel. Overall, I have seen far, far worse in this genre.

Just remember this is an over-the-top kind of movie. It's not even close to a typical action comedy. This one has more unbelievable fights, gunfire, chases and general absurdities than five garden variety action flicks combined. I usually don't like super-action movies with nothing but explosions and bullets every two seconds, but in this film the action works and the light comedy keeps pace with it.

Watch Red 2 when you want to shut down your brain for a little while and relax with some good old American, explosive, violent, unapologetic, save-the-world, comedic entertainment.

More of the same.

RED 2 sees old-timer ex-black-ops CIA agent Frank (Bruce Willis) reuniting with his ex-colleagues to try and find a missing nuclear device that was smuggled into Moscow in the '70s. Also along for the ride is Frank's girlfriend Sarah (Mary-Louise Parker), who can't get enough of the exciting espionage lifestyle. Meanwhile, numerous people try to kill Frank and his pals.

Let's be honest, people don't generally watch this kind of film for the plot (which is a good thing because the story for RED 2 is a forgettable, scattershot affair, leaping all over the place): they watch it for the all-star cast - which this time around features Anthony Hopkins, David Thewlis, Catherine Zeta Jones, and Byung-hun Lee - and for the ridiculous action scenes, of which there are plenty.

Fans of the first film will no doubt have a blast as this film delivers the same mix of comedy and violence as the first film, with highlights being Han destroying numerous vehicles with a mini gun, a car chase through Paris, and an exciting high speed pursuit down a British motorway. Like the original, this sequel is perhaps a touch too long at almost two hours, but the rapid pace and constant change of scenery ensures a consistently fun time for the duration.

6.5 out of 10 for Byung-hun Lee: he might have been included to appeal to the Asian market, but he's easily the best thing about the film, the Korean actor shining brighter than the Hollywood stars.

Cute, Funny, and Full of Action

You don't have to see RED first, but it is awfully cute. The title stands for Retired and Extremely Dangerous, so as you might expect from watching the preview and seeing the cast list, this is one of those "old guys still got it" movies. In general, I love these movies, and with RED and RED 2 I was just as entertained as I'd expected to be. Ironically, the youngest man in the bunch, Bruce Willis, is the lead. I never think of him as being of retirement age, but here he stands among older old-timers: John Malkovich, Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren, and Anthony Hopkins.

As you know from the first movie, the gang is a bunch of retired CIA agents who are fighting to stay alive, because they know some pretty dangerous state secrets. Bruce Willis and Mary-Louise Parker are still completely adorable together in the film, and when his ex-flame Catherine Zeta-Jones shows up, Mary-Louise gets pretty jealous! Joining the cast for the sequel are Neal McDonough and Byung-hun Lee, so ladies, you'll get plenty of eye candy in this one!

RED 2 is just as funny, delightful, romantic, and exciting as the first movie. It's chalk-full of hilarious one-liners and thrilling action scenes, so buckle up and get ready for a very fun movie night!
