Bruce Willis reprises his role as ex-CIA agent Frank Moses in this star-studded sequel to the action comedy based on D.C. Comics' cult graphic novel. Frank is brought out of retirement once again when he is asked to track down a nuclear device which has fallen into the wrong hands. In order to find out the device's location he must first speak to Edward Bailey (Anthony Hopkins), the scientist responsible for its creation, but to make matters worse his old partner Victoria (Helen Mirren) has been contracted to kill him with the help of a much renowned deadly assassin (Byung-hun Lee).

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.
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!!
The team is sent all over the world, It got more and more complicated. Virginia (Helen Mirren) is given order to kill them and that adds complications.
RED was basically a very good, solid story with a team that one could relate to. RED 2 just tries to do too much and too many twists and turns.
It might not work as a jumping on point if you've not seen the first film. But if you're reading this you probably have. So that shouldn't be a problem.
Following on from the end of said first film, Frank [Bruce Willis] and Sarah [Mary Louise Parker] are now a couple. But whilst he wants to keep out of the spy life to keep her safe, she wants the danger and excitement of it.
When old friends return and old secrets come to light, she might just get her wish...
Nearly all of the cast from the first film return. Aside from Ernest Borgnine and Morgan Freeman. For obvious reasons. And Karl Urban. For no apparent reason. Although Brian Cox barely features. It tries do the same as before, that being outrageous action sequences and character comedy, and it doing those again there is enough new and different stuff in here to make it work.
When it comes to the central relationship though Bruce Willis does seem to be a bit bored and going through the motions. But Mary Louise Parker has such great comic timing, and like all the others in the cast is clearly having a lot of fun in making the film, that it works fine.
In striving for a light tone and a 12 certificate it does mean that when some of the violence does get slightly serious and people get hurt it does feel slightly out of tone to the rest of the film. But that's only a minor complaint.
Some may wish to be aware that a small handful of moments are subtitled. Subtitles you can't turn off. But that's no more than a few minutes.Read more ›
