Don't mess with the RED guys,
This review is from: Red 2 (DVD)
I did like this film. It is full of way over the top action, and loads of big explosions. I find this entertaining. The only reason I could not give it 5 stars is simple when you have one action scene after another for a whole hour my brain does start to switch off. This film is I 1 hour 40 minutes. I think they could have cut out about 20 minutes and I think it would have been perfect. The other thing that did let this film down for me was Bruce Willis' character when he is not in an action scene. It is similar (actually identical) to the character he played in at the beginning of the second whole nine yards film. Winy and camp. During action scenes he is as cool as ever.
The story Bruce is being framed for something called project "nightshade". Now he must first try and figure out what is "Nightshade" and who is actually responsible. The rest of the RED are also involved, but now all on the same side. Could this be anything but explosive? Personally as I grow older always find it fun watching the older guys schooling the youngsters. All in all a good but slightly over run action film, with some great one-liners.
