Did the filmmakers believe that simply seeing John Malkovich in boots, a stupid hat and shorts could swipe your short-term memory clean of things you'd just seen minutes ago?

A good action adventure with some comedy thrown in, and Mary Louise Parker steals the show
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

RED 2 is a gleeful, trashy romp of a thing - an '80s TV show for a 2013 audience.

By not really improving upon the original, it seems more interested in trying to recapture old magic than in creating something new.

This film is loaded with top acting talent. There is also plenty of action and the pace of the film is fast. There are strong characters and a breezy humor to lighten the mood. This is an enjoyable, entertaining summer film.

This is a likable, almost gentle comedy and also a violent action film about the possibility of a nuclear bomb going off in a major city.

It's witty and satisfying, but I wish it was not so gleefully gun happy and that it did not treat the loss of life entirely as a joke.

"RED 2" is uninspired, and undercut by weak scriptwriting, ragged editing, mundane action sequences and run-of-the-mill stunts.

Absurd sequel to the absurd and inconsequential Red.

Despite being a failed comic book movie, "Red 2" is stronger with each quirky character it has successfully defined than the overall movie it has created with them.

For a film with an A-list cast who would have dreamed that it would be stolen by Mary Louise Parker?...what it lacks in credibility it more than makes up for in entertainment value.

Bruce Willis expends so little energy shaping his umpteenth action persona that he can't even be bothered to crack a smile. Luckily, Helen Mirren, Mary Louis Parker, Brian Cox and John Malkovich are all-too happy to step in and steal the limelight.

The movie clearly doesn't have much going on, so director Dean Parisot moves things quickly in a vain effort to keep viewers from noticing.

The original Red was the most fun I had in a theater in 2010. Red 2 is likely to be the most fun I'll have in a theater in 2013.

Willis is self-evidently capable of kicking the asses of men considerably younger than himself. But at some point shouldn't he consider an alternative pastime?
Leonard Maltin

Willis is solid, as usual, but it's Parker (and, later in the proceedings, Hopkins) who seem to actually be having fun, which is mildly contagious.

No movie with this much ass-kicking should feel so lifeless.

On a hot summer afternoon, RED 2 fits the bill the same way a small glass of cool pink lemonade does.

There's a charming chemistry between the various cast members.
