Now the top agents in the world are under contract to seek them out to discover where Nightshade is.

They learn that the brilliant inventor Dr. Edward Bailey (Sir Anthony Hopkins) might know where the weapon is.

An excellent action packed fun movie!
1 December 2015 | by ivo-cobra8See all my reviews

Disclaimer: If you are a viewer that mainly prefers art-house-type movies, then you might as well ignore this review. In addition, if you're not able to take an action packed comedy sequels filled with humor than ignore this review, as well. We'll both be better off.

Red 2 (2013) in my opinion is a good movie as the first one, but I still prefer the first movie better than this. The first time I saw it, I thought it was okay. But than again watching both movies separately on Blu-ray I realized I love the first one much better than this one. I like this movie not love just like. But the things that bothered me was this movie was time by time boring unlike the first one. I just got really tired and bored watching it for 2.hrs. You have now a new additions on the cast Anthony Hopkins, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Byung Hun Lee & Neal McDonough and director Robert Schwentke was replaced by new director Dean Parisot. Karl Urban was replaced by Byung Hun Lee who played Storm Shadow in both G.I. Joe flicks. I was little upset that Karl Urban was replaced and he wasn't in this movie. Still I think Byung Hun Lee did an excellent job in this movie. Everyone in this movie does a great job.

John Malkovich did an outstanding job playing repressing his role back again as Marvin Boggs and the were full of laughs in it. The story was great and the action was good. I still love the new characters in this, Anthony Hopkins as two face person did a convincing job and believable acting, I seriously love the twist on the end of the movie. Anthony Hopkins Is amazing in this film, the role is perfect and the accent just makes it so awesome, the most bad ass villain ever. The humor in this movie is good, the face off between good and evil is good. The story works and you keep guessing what will be next. Mary-Louise Parker as Sarah Ross is even more hotter than she was in the first movie and a little more sexy than ever. She is gorgeous and does a lot of spy stuff in here, she is like Lucy she wants to do everything in this movie. The movie is really funny and entertaining. I know a lot of people prefer this one over the first one, even my friend told me this one is better. I will still stay by my own opinion and I will always enjoy Red more than Red 2 sorry fans. It is an entertaining movie, Catherine Zeta Jones character was flat, but it served the B story. Mirren-Cox couple was down right cute, John Malkovich was hilarious again, Mary-Louise Parker great, learning the spy trade was slap stick funny, Byung-hun Lee did a good job at being the serious funny and Anthony Hopkins is always good. the action was believable good, the spy stuff was believable good and the chemistry worked.

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' will 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. It is still good movie not the best or that great but still good full action packed enjoyable flick to watch!

Overall: It is a good action packed fun excellent movie with the twists around, great action scenes, great cast and just great acting. The Acting in this movie is very realistic and outstanding performed from all the actors in here. I like how different these action movies are , they are cheesy but also have some brains to the plot and the characters , Bruce Willis being one of my favorites , I always liked the concept of old veteran people still teaching the young bunch how its done. Red 2 is as good as the first one with it's original cast returning again and kicking ass all over the place, just without Morgan Freeman and my favorite all time actor Karl Urban! Red 2 is the same level as Red 1 but still good one it is a good time, it does kind a little drag one, this one does feel a bit longer than the first one but still good. I am giving it a 9 which is A- for me because there wasn't Karl Urban in it.

Red 2 is 2013 American action comedy film and sequel to Red (2010). It was inspired by the limited comic book series of the same name, created by Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner, and published by the DC Comics imprint Homage.
