In RED 2, the high-octane action-comedy sequel to the worldwide sleeper hit, retired black-ops CIA agent Frank Moses reunites his unlikely team of elite operatives for a global quest to track down a missing portable nuclear device. To succeed, they’ll need to survive an army of relentless assassins, ruthless terrorists and power-crazed government officials, all eager to get their hands on the next-generation weapon. The mission takes Frank and his motley crew to Paris, London and Moscow. Outgunned and outmanned, they have only their cunning wits, their old-school skills, and each other to rely on as they try to save the world—and stay alive in the process.
Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Parker, Byung Hun Lee,
Catherine Zeta-Jones, Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren
Needless to say, Red 2 is a gleeful and sly sequel to its predecessor, Red. Prior to watching this movie, I couldn’t much recall the snippets of Red the movie. With that in mind, I went ahead to watch Red 2 because I know no matter what, I know the movie is gonna be exciting and amusing.With well-known action movie stars like Bruce Willis, and comical actor like John Malkovich, Red 2 is indeed one of the best action movie this year, with traces of humor and intelligent plotting.
If you are seeking full-fledged action movie like the one Bruce Willis starred in “A good day to die hard”, you may be disappointed. Red 2 isn’t exactly all about how the old retirees make their comeback with all the blasting and gun fights. But in addition to that, it includes certain level of humor, romance and erm.. old men’s crankiness. Haha!
Some may despise the fact that the movie has treated deaths and the lost of people’s lives as a joke. I wouldn’t take this point to heart because it’s after a lighthearted action movie.
All in all, I truly enjoyed the movie so much that I believe it’s a movie worth to catch. Now please excuse me while I search for the first Red movie because I believe it’s too good to be missed.
