"Red 2" is at least as good as its predecessor, if not noticeably better.

A highly-watchable but stilted sequel that serves as a complacent sequel to the fun original.

Much of the originality has faded and Morgan Freeman's absence is keenly felt, but the end result is still a fun, exciting adventure.

Who knows if teenagers will appreciate this type of actioner? No matter. They get plenty of films designed for them. You go, gramps!

RED 2 plays it pretty safe, carefully emulating the style and tone of its predecessor, so if you enjoyed the first one, RED 2 should tick the same boxes for you.

About the best - and maybe the worst - that can be about RED 2 is that it is an exceedingly safe pick.

Smart, breezy spy action, with an of-the-moment vibe that takes it post-post-9/11 and into the Wikileaks era of global politics.

The trick to RED 2's success is its willingness to allow the actors to roar through all their greatest hits at the loudest possible volume.

The plot might not add up to much, but there's plenty of fire-fights, punch-ups and bristling one-liners to go round a cast so vast they could have called this The Extendables.

That A-list cast of "retired, extremely dangerous" spies is back, coasting through another amiable but uninspired action-comedy.

RED 2 is a decent enough sequel, thanks to likeable performances from a strong comic cast and a mixture of solid action set-pieces and witty dialogue, but it runs out of steam before the end and lacks emotional depth.

Less an ensemble variation of Bourne and more Carry on Killing, there's much to enjoy in a sequel that finds laughs in the blase attitude of its anti-heroes to the grim business of inconsequential death.

The reason this franchise succeeds is that it never takes itself too seriously.

Giddy comic spyboiler.

If you liked Red , you'll like this nicely pitched sequel. It doesn't break new ground but it's good mindless summer fun with a great cast.

Despite a script peppered with bullet holes, the cast seem to be having pulpy fun, and if you can get past Red's exuberant attitude to violent death, so might you.

Sly and savvy, it's a classy, globe-trotting action comedy for baby-boomers.

Audiences who have been burned by too many of this season's high-profile titles might want to take a chance on this comparatively small-scale effort: Like a favorite pair of slippers, it may not exactly be new, but it makes for a comfortable fit.

A good action adventure with some comedy thrown in, and Mary Louise Parker steals the show
