Red 2

Action-comedy sequel to 2010's Red, the DC Comics graphic novel adaptation about a group of retired secret service men and women forced back into the dangerous game of international espionage. Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Helen Mirren and Mary-Louise Parker return, joined by Catherine Zeta-Jones and Anthony Hopkins.

This time, former black-ops CIA agent Frank (Willis) reunites his unlikely team of elite operatives for a global quest to track down a missing portable nuclear device. 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 the gang to Paris, London and Moscow.

An obligatory sequel that can't quite recapture the sly, laid-back pleasures of its cheerfully ridiculous predecessor.

Returning screenwriters Jon and Erich Hoeber have penned a surplus of minor melees and major set-pieces.

As in the first film, the seasoned-pro cast provides the few fleeting pleasures to be found.

Cars careen, lazily written infiltration plans are executed, and the violence is plentiful and toothless.

Like the first one, it's played for laughs in-between bouts of mayhem; most of the gags are off-target, though Mirren's Nancy Mitfordesque assassin gets a pretty good kill ratio.

Perilously close to a formulaic romantic comedy... Viewers who show up looking for over-the-top mayhem may suspect they’ve wandered into the wrong film.

Not that it isn't entertaining, but the film's premise is certainly well past its "use by" date.

A fun, frothy return for Frank and his creaky commandos.

Lot's of action, Bruce Willis is in it and it's better than its predecessor. Malkovich is hilarious, Mirren & Hopkins superb. Crazy plot. Byung-hun Lee's in it. Oh, and lots of action.

Down but not out, Frank Moses is coerced back into action. And for an older action hero, he both takes and dishes out some ball shattering action and tragically funny one-liners. If your idea of entertainment is dominating a filling room full of bad guy’s with tried, true and fatal hand to hand combat and you have a dark sense of humour then this movie is...

Many film goers attend a movie such as RED 2 and expect to see a plot thicker than grandma's cold porridge and they leave disappointed blaspheming expletives and another bloody action movie! Save your disappointment this is a true to genre action movie with plenty of gags and one liners and physical humour. Its a classic Willis action with comic relief. It...

- RED 2 - Like the first 'RED' this is packed with action, and one linners, imagine the 'Expendables' with a little 'Bond' and 'Princess Bride' thrown in, like a good mix of 'Die Hard' with 'Kindergarden Cop'. Silly action and love story, but completely lovable. This is completely craptastic, escapism and it's not the most realistic film I've ever seen, but...

If you enjoyed the first RED (Retired: Extremely Dumb), then you'll enjoy this sequel which has more of the same plus the addition of Catherine Zeta-Look-at-me!-Look-at-me! and Anthony I-won-an-Oscar-once-you-know Hopkins. It's comic book silliness for the grey-rinse set has broad appeal. It's fun but instantly forgettable froth - and why not? John...

5 of us went to see Red 2 today. Completely OTT. Completely unbelievable. Totally enjoyable! Our retired CIA men (Willis & Malkovich) are back in action along with Helen Mirren and a few more well-worn faces. A sort of "Kick Ass" for seniors! Well worth watch people of our generation saving the planet. Comic story-level script with plenty if action and...

But worth a look. A-grade cast makes it work. Comic book story but just don't take it seriously and be entertained.
