Storyline:
In “Red 2”, the high-octane action-comedy sequel to the worldwide sleeper hit, retired black-ops CIA agent Frank Moses reunites his unlikely team of elite operatives for a global quest to track down a missing portable nuclear device. To succeed, they’ll need to survive an army of relentless assassins, ruthless terrorists and power-crazed government officials, all eager to get their hands on the next-generation weapon. The mission takes Frank and his motley crew to Paris, London and Moscow. Outgunned and outmanned, they have only their cunning wits, their old-school skills, and each other to rely on as they try to save the world-and stay alive in the process.

One review

  • I liked the first “Red” (2010), it was not high art, but a fun entertaining film, an awesome mix of action, comedy, and suspense, and had a bunch of good actors that had good chemistry. Now the sequel really takes the action, comedy, and suspense up a notch. Bruce Willis and Mary-Louise Parker are like a sitcom couple, and they play that very well. John Malkovich is great with his funny deadpan like expression and the lines that go with it. Helen Mirren is good, has the tough middle edge hit woman. There was a very good cameo from David Thewlis as ‘The Frog’ he’s a very good French man. The cast work well together in this action comedy flick. Anthony Hopkins brings a good feel to the film, has the wacky scientist who helps them, and Brian Cox returns for the sequel, and when Cox and Hopkins are in a scene together, the thought that went through my mind is, these two guys played Hannibal Lecter. Catherine Zeta Jones is alright, but I wish they would have giving more to do. An entertaining action, comedy, thriller, never tries to be nothing more.
