What a breath of fresh air; a bunch of brilliant actors having a great time cramming every action movie cliché in to a smidge under two hours of rip-roaring brain-out entertainment.

The all-star cast of Retired Extremely Dangerous old-school black ops types are back, saving the world again, this time from a magnificently bonkers Anthony Hopkins. John Malkovich shines again as Marvin and Bruce is, well, still Bruce and everybody is just brilliant; it is not possible to single out a single cast member for particular praise.

Penned by the same writing team as the first film, but under a different director (the same chap who brought us the splendidly daft Galaxy Quest), Red 2 dovetails perfectly with its predecessor. The carefully not quite over-the-top humour is unexpectedly subtle at times and manages to avoid being juvenile & shallow; the cast operates as a skilled and craftsman-like whole (you’d expect nothing less from such experienced actors); the pace is relentless and there are some cracking stunts in fancy cars.

RED 2 is massively entertaining, surprisingly witty and superb fun. A perfect case-study in pure entertainment and even better, if that’s possible, than the first movie. Simply brilliant – if your head’s aching from trying to figure out Cloud Atlas then give it a rest and watch this!!

Red 2 is logically, the sequel to Red - it follows ex-CIA agents Frank Moses (Bruce Willis) and Marvin (John Malkovich - Jonah Hex) as they try to address one of their mistakes from their chequered pasts during the cold war - Project Nightshade. Whilst most people thought Nightshade was nothing but a rumour, intelligence that Frank & Marvin were involved leaks and soon the entire world is looking for the guys to extract information and kill them, including the world's best contract-killer Han (Byung-hun Lee - G.I. Joe: Retaliation) and the equally retired Victoria (Helen Mirren - Hitchcock). When all clues point to the 'Leonardo Da Vinci of Doomsday weapons' - missing scientist Dr Bailey (Antony Hopkins - also Hitchcock) as the only way to solve this conundrum, the guys have to battle it out against contract killers and government agencies the world over to clear their names.

Red 2 is a difficult one to call, if you liked the first, you'll like this one too is probably the best synopsis - I thought I was in that boat initially.

Not anywhere as good as the first film. Bruce Willis is going through the motions as in a lot of his movies at the moment and for people wanted by all international police agencies they are able to flit all over the world with ease. Some good moments and Helen Mirren is very good. A few missed chances with Anthony Hopkins. Watchable but typical of sequels.

Not nearly as good as the first one which was excellent. The acting on the whole was very good especially Anthony Hopkins, but it was a bit all over the place and not nearly as well planned as the original. Still fun to watch if you've nothing else to do but on the whole disappointing.

Really enjoyed the first film, but this is a bit of a sequel for a sequels case. Not the best storyline / plot / scripting - seen it, and it was OK - enjoyable to watch once, but not bothered if I see it again. So from that point of view not such a good buy.

Format: DVD
The film incorporates Wikileaks as the new problem child for Moses Frank (Bruce Willis) and company. An article claims he and Marvin (John Malkovich) were involved in a 1979 operation called "Night Shade." They have become wanted men.

In an expanded role Sarah (Mary-Louise Parker) our meek lady from Kansas has become a thrill seeker and joins the group as they travel the world to find "Night Shade." In addition to Interpol and the Feds looking for our heroes, there is also a hitman (Byung-hun Lee) after them and Victoria (Helen Mirren) is also contracted to kill them...Malkovich proclaims "Friends don't take out a contract on friends." They are allied by KGB agent Katja (Catherine Zeta-Jones) to the displeasure of sweet innocent Sarah who says..."Can't we just kill her?"

The film is filled with Malkovich one liners which we enjoyed in the first movie. The expanded role of Sarah added to the feature. This is perhaps a notch below the first installment, but a worthy action-comedy sequel that will be in my collection when it comes out.

Parental Guide: No sex or nudity. One half spoken f-bomb.
