Oh dear. What went wrong?,
This review is from: Red 2 [DVD] (DVD)
I really enjoyed the first Red. Yes, it was silly and far fetched and utterly preposterous. But it was great fun, didn't take itself too seriously and, crucially, didn't appear to take itself too seriously. This sequel has a few moments, but is a waste of of time essentially. Mary Louise Parker's character's sole purpose appeared to be to be annoying and irritating - repeatedly doing stupid things to force the plot along. I know this isn't Ken Loach, but Catherine Zeta Jones' Russian superspy would not have had a low cut uniform. And it's a shame to see John Malkovich reduced to gurning.
Save your time and your money. Don't bother.
