Funny Humor! Cool Action! Sizzling Chemistry! Great Movie!
Reviewed by: Dare Devil Kid (DDK) Rating: 3.7/5 stars

Wow, along with "The Heat', we've had two great action comedies in a single year, after being starved of this rare feast for ages. Now that's really something. "Red 2" is as funny as the original & surpasses it in terms of spectacle and scale. What it lacks in its screenplay and narrative, it more than makes up for in its thrilling action scenes, humor, and crackling chemistry between its actors - just like its classic predecessor.

Bruce Willis once again proves why he's revered as one of the greatest macho movie-icons of all time - the man puts most younger leading men to shame at his age. Malkovich, Mirren, Parker, Zeta-Jones, Hopkins, and Byung-Hun are all spot-on. Fans of action movies - especially light- hearted action comedies - don't make the mistake of missing this one.

Not Quite As Red As the First.
Red 2 (2013): Dir: Dean Parisot / Cast: Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Parker, Anthony Hopkins, Catherine Zeta-Jones: Entertaining yet routine sequel reprising most of the original film's veteran cast. Bruce Willis returns as Frank Moses who is trying to live a quiet life as a result of his relationship from the first film's events. When Marvin appears warning that they are being followed Frank brushes him off. When Marvin's truck explodes in a parking lot Frank doesn't believe he is dead. His assumption is true especially when Marvin turns up again when attempts are made on their lives. Central plot regards a secret operation codenamed Nightshade that regards a nuclear bomb that is hidden somewhere in Moscow. Simple setup becomes progressively detailed with several plot turns and much humour. The climax is clever as intelligence is defeated by wit. Dean Parisot previously directed the underrated Home Fries, also about characters leading double lives. Willis brings forth his sly confidence as Frank who solves the plot but not without many attempts on his life. John Malkovich as Marvin provides much of the humour as he attempts to derail Frank's pull into the clutches of seductive vixens. Mary-Louise Parker as Frank's girlfriend is hilarious seeking excitement despite Frank's protests. Anthony Hopkins appears in a scene stealing key role as someone in an asylum who knows the whereabouts of Nightshade. Catherine Zeta-Jones also steals scenes and must collaborate when the crime becomes too complicated. Often silly action farce most appreciated by those who enjoyed the first film. Score: 6 / 10

Don't bother!!
If you watched the first part of Red you will be rather disappointed. Even such amazing actors as Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich and Anthony Hopkins didn't help. It's just very boring. For a whole movie the viewer is waiting for something to happen but it's just not happening. Don't get me wrong there is a lot of action but... Let's just say everything is very easy to predict.Cartoon edits, which look like being taken from marvel comics and pop in every once in a while, are very annoying. It looks as if this movie is good only in the prism of ads of Pringles, lotus, Papa Johns. Those brands are very well highlighted. It makes you want to think if those companies paid to produce this movie or if it is just a happy coincidence. Second part is almost never as good as a first one but in this case it's just very bad.

Will definitely see again!
If you liked the first RED, and understood what it was and what is wasn't, you should be completely entertained by RED 2. We were lucky enough to see an advanced showing before the naysayers started spreading their naying and we walked out of the theater last night laughing, quoting, and discussing the movie - always a good sign! This is not a movie that needs to be over-analyzed... as my husband said, "It was exactly what I was hoping it would be." which is, more interesting characters played by top notch well-known actors getting into all kinds of far-out situations. Great lite summer fare and we will definitely be re-watching this one again when it hits the premium cable channels (just like we have with RED).

Failed to Live Up to the Hype and Level of the First Movie
"Frank" (Bruce Willis) and "Sarah" (Mary-Louise Parker) are just trying to lead ordinary lives when "Marvin" (John Malkovich) appears out of nowhere and is subsequently killed right in front of them. After the funeral Frank is arrested and taken to a facility to be interrogated about a top-secret project he supposedly had knowledge of in his former capacity as a CIA agent. Unfortunately, while being interrogated, a group of trained assassins break in with the intent to kill him. He manages to escape and this results in a race by certain governments to either kill him to contain the information or to capture him in order to acquire the information. Now, although this film wasn't necessarily bad, I personally believe that it failed to live up to the hype and the level of the first movie. For starters, there were too many characters thrown in with not enough film to go around for all of them. That said, I liked the addition of both Catherine Zeta-Jones (as "Katja") and Anthony Hopkins ("Dr. Bailey Evans"). But Byung-hun Lee (as "Han Cho Bai") wasn't needed and his performance was too clichéd and unpolished. Likewise, the reintroduction of "Victoria" (Helen Mirren) and "Ivan" (Brian Cox) was too obvious and clumsy. Further, the main characters who made the last film a success weren't given the material that played up to their strengths. For example, Frank wasn't the baddest character on the block—Han Cho Bai was--and it diminished Frank's status somewhat. Likewise, Marvin wasn't nearly as crazy or funny and Sarah seemed to lose the two things that made her special in the first film-- her innocence and vulnerability. So essentially what we had was a collection of characters thrown against the wall to see which ones would stick. And some things just didn't seem to work. In short, it wasn't as good as the first movie. I rate this movie as average.

Red Alert
This was one of the choppiest movies I can remember seeing in a long time. The editing was horrid. Scenes would change nonsensically and cuts seemed random. Terrible acting, terrible story, poorly directed, not funny (the "jokes" seemed forced). I would almost say they created this second movie from cuts swept up from the floor from the first movie.

The characters were hollow representations of the original ones. The subplots were plain ridiculous and seemingly hacked together.

I was greatly disappointed with this movie. I found nothing redeeming about it at all.

The action scenes are awesome!
'RED 2': Four Stars (Out of Five)

Sequel to the 2010 hit action/comedy film based on the DC Comics limited comic book series of the same name. This installment once again focuses on 'retired and extremely dangerous (RED)' black-ops agent Frank Moses (once again played by Bruce Willis), who must come out of retirement and join forces with his old team (once again). This time in order to find a missing nuclear weapon and clear his name (Moses and his buddy Marvin have been linked to the stealing of the device). Willis's all star cast of co-stars, from the original film, once again join him; including John Malkovich (as Marvin), Helen Mirren, Mary-Louise Parker and Brian Cox. Morgan Freeman (who's character died in the original movie) of course does not return for this installment but newcomers Byung-hun Lee, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Neal McDonough, David Thewlis and Anthony Hopkins do join the cast. Jon and Erich Hoeber once again wrote the screenplay but Robert Schwentke does not return this time as the film's director, he's been replaced by Dean Parisot (who's known for directing such hit comedy films as 'GALAXY QUEST', 'FUN WITH DICK AND JANE' and 'HOME FRIES'). I didn't enjoy the first movie much at all so I was really surprised at how much I enjoyed this one (I think Parisot's directing was probably a big reason).

The film begins with Frank (Willis) once again trying to live a happily retired life, now with his girlfriend Sarah (Parker), but trouble once again finds him. He's first tracked down by his old partner Marvin (Malkovich), who tries to convince Frank that there's people still after them. Frank thinks he's crazy but when Marvin is apparently killed Frank also finds himself kidnapped by government agents. He learns that his involvement in an operation, of smuggling a nuclear weapon into Moscow during the Cold War, has now come back to haunt him. People think he knows where the missing nuke is and is involved in it's disappearance. He must join forces with old team members, including an old flame named Katja (Zeta-Jones) who's also a Russian secret agent, while avoiding others who are now hired to kill him. Victoria (Mirren) has accepted a contract to kill Frank and so has an expert killer named Han Cho Bai (Byung-hun), who's bent on revenge against Frank. Hopkins plays a mentally ill physicist who may hold the key to the nuclear weapon's whereabouts.

For me the original film was a lot like an action comic-book version of 'GRUMPY OLD MEN'! I found the jokes tired and old (but most of all forced) and I didn't think the action scenes were all that thrilling. I only saw the movie once though so maybe I just need to watch it again (from possibly a different viewpoint and mood). In my opinion this sequel improves on everything the first film got wrong though. The jokes are clever and witty, the characters are likable and fun to watch and most of all the action scenes are awesome. The addition of Byung-hun Lee was a great improvement but also I think Parisot is just a better director for this type of movie. It's still the same two screenwriters though, even though the dialogue and storyline seem a lot better as well. I had a blast with this film, I know the critics didn't like it as much as the original but the critics are often wrong. If you're looking for a fun and funny action film extravaganza (regardless of whether you liked the original movie or not) you might really enjoy this film.

An awesome sequel to the original.
Let me start by saying that I love this film so much.

I was lucky enough to catch this one in theaters with a buddy, unlike the first, which I only got to see on DVD, which I now own both.

Frank and his team must stop a shadowy conspiracy from finding and using Night-Shade,

with the help of a wacky ex agent,

who is the inventor of the mysterious weapon.

Overall, a great action-comedy with a good cast and a well written story, and I think a Superior follow up to the original.

I give it a 7.4/10. More action, more laughs, more thrills. It's a real good time, I highly recommend it.

Red 2
The OAP secret agent club is back and the makeup levels have increased tenfold. The over the hill Expendables strike again and this time there are new members to the team...sort of.

Mission status: your bog standard, obligatory, run of the mill, over the top James Bond type secret agent tomfoolery with 'Mission: Impossible' styled stunts and vehicle chase sequences. Throw in light-hearted comedy to soften the violence and utilise lots of age jokes.

I think the problem here is firstly this genre is so so so so so so utterly and completely flooded with so many films that are all the same with the same action sequences, its just dull. There is absolutely nothing exciting about watching these aged actors pretending to be action heroes, under layers and layers of makeup attempting to make them look young and fit whilst the whole time its simply watching stunt doubles. I mean really, what's the point? half the film isn't the actual cast!.

Willis clearly doesn't care anymore, the guy is done, past it and doesn't care about acting, he should retire. Louise-Parker is the most annoying female I've come across since Sandra Bullock, she merely smirks, grins and acts coy the entire time, that's all she and Willis do! perform awkwardly as a couple together, its dreadful. Watching Mirren is literately like watching my gran (God rest her soul) in an action flick! its embarrassing. The only person to have more makeup on than Mirren was Zeta-Jones who looked like a frankfurter, how much makeup Jones?? it doesn't make you any sexier or a better actress, give it up.

Only good old Malkovich still manages to shine with his bumbling trigger happy persona and Hopkins isn't too bad as the under assuming scientist type with a secret. But wait! the powers that be have really gone to town this time and have tried to hire every aged/aging British thesp they can get their hands on. Enter Thewlis as some other secret agent bloke who is a dab hand with a gun...unsurprisingly. Cox is also back again as Mirren's Russian love interest but does nothing accept sniff her boots.

After all that we have Lee Byung-Hun who really sticks out like a sore thumb. A primed firm fit buff martial artist who can take down hordes of men single handed yet can't defeat old man Willis. Surely this dude could and should kill the whole team without breaking sweat, its like he should be in a totally different movie.

Nothing of much interest happens for the whole film in all honesty, a few fights, a few shootouts, a dash of lame comedy, Willis and Parker displaying some of the worst acting you've ever seen etc...Its only at the end do we see some fast n furious action...errr in the form of a 'Fast n Furious' styled car chase sequence...in a Lotus that came outta nowhere. The action is hyper yet dumb, so very dumb. I love the standard modern action movie clichés of bad guys spraying these fancy cars with machine gun fire yet no damage is visible, plus no one ever thinks to shoot out the tyres. The less said about the hideous helicopter crash that Willis and co walk away from the better, oh so they are invincible super agents after all.

A complete and utter rehash of the first film which somehow manages to be less exciting, not as funny and with tired performance from Willis. First film was quite quirky and fun seeing these old boys kick ass, now its just deflated and repetitive. There just doesn't seem to be any point to this films existence other than simply to try and make more money, just crank out another, no thought, no worries, roll out more of the same, no one will notice or care...its got Bruce Willis in it.

3/10

Red 2 - Action And Humor, Doesn't Get Any Better Than This!
Well, except for Morgan Freeman who was so great in the original Red, and was missed in this one, the main crew was here. Red was vastly enjoyable and Red 2, I am happy to report, matches that enjoyment. Everyone in this cast is spectacular. Bruce Willis is one of the best there is in action movies. As Frank Moses assembling his band of quirky and deadly operatives, throw in a portable nuclear device, some twists, turns and unexpected moments, and you've got an action picture guaranteed to please. Helen Mirren is simply splendid – how can one manage to look elegant and be so dangerous? Anthony Hopkins never fails to provide a performance that is stellar and in this one, he goes above and beyond. Byung-hun Lee was amazing. For some odd reason, he reminded me of a Korean version of Brad Pitt. At any rate, he was perfection. Mary-Louise Parker is a funny delight and John Malkovich is a stitch. Well, there wasn't one single actor or actress who wasn't spot on and if you liked Red – which I certainly did – you will like this one. It's exactly what you'd want the sequel to be. I'm just hoping for a third!
