Nothing beats the first one, but the cast does try to match the energy and spunk of the first. Anthony Hopkins is a delightful addition, as a mad scientist in need of protection. Helen Mirren shines yet again.

Despite some uncertainty about this one, I can say I liked Red 2 just as much; if not more than its predecessor. The cast is great, and seems to be having fun, the action is spectacular at times, and the plot is good enough to keep me entertained. I really enjoyed Red and Red 2, and would really like to see another film to make a trilogy

A Fun, Worthy Sequel!

Originally Written December 7, 2013--
Everything you loved about the original film is also right here in the sequel! Bruce Willis, Mary-Louise Parker, John Malkovich, Helen Mirren, and Brian Cox are all back again and they are terrific. The only thing I didn't like about the film is the way things were a little too predictable. But it was fun -- and in a movie like this, that's all that matters!

Just as good as the first all the cast were great and all added to the humour, The story wasn't as good and it's been done before hundreds of times and will be done again a hundred more, The action scenes were better than the first and were quite entertaining, Nothing new but entertaining and that's what movies like this are really about.

A wildly comedic and thoroughly amusing film could be helped put by a stronger plot. The acting is good and the general film is good but it doesn't quite fill the shoes of it marvellous prequel.

This isn't as funny or capery as the first and it's all the worse for it. You end up just feeling slightly uncomfortable at the body count, the casual attitude towards death, and apart from anything else, without the deliberately light-hearted context, when you start trying to take seriously a group of 60-somethings breaking into the Kremlin and generally butt kicking every security service on earth, it just doesn't work so well. Having said that, it retains the fast pace with quick location changes, the soundtrack is better than the first and there's a fair amount of action. It's actually alright, I just think they missed a vital ingredient.

The original was a little better but Malkovich is still a hoot

It's a pretty low-brow action production, with lots of geriatric actors, but at the same time they still have presence.

Red 2 pode ser um bom filme de ação,Com cenas incríveis de explosões e tiroteios,mas ele falha como continuação da historia e,nas atuações.

Die alte Rentnertruppe, von alten CIA Agenten, sind wieder auf Trab!
Dieses Mal müssen sie eine Nuklearwaffe finden und ihren durchgeknallten Erfinder. Dabei kommen noch andere Hürden auf sie zu. Und der Erfinder der Waffe, ist auch alles anderes, als sie erwarten hätten.
Schon wenn man diese Grundgeschichte hört, weiss man, dass es nicht grosse Überraschungen gibt. Denn solche Geschichten von Agenten und Wissenschaftlern gab es schon genug. Wichtig ist hier eigentlich nur die Besetzung: Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Helen Mirren, Brian Cox und Mary-Louise Parker sind vom ersten Teil zurück. Unterstützt werden sie von Catherine Zeta-Jones, Anthony Hopkins und Byung-hun Lee. Bei dieser knallbunten Besetzung macht es schon Spass, den Film anzusehen.
Sicherlich ist die Action an erster Stelle und es wurde auch gut inszeniert. Aber die Dialoge und der Humor sind nicht mehr gerade das, was man vor ersten Teil kannte. Gewisse Szenen sind zu trocken und kommen manchmal auch Lustlos rüber. Am besten hat mir Anthony Hopkins gefallen. Der hatte wirklich Bock, seine Rolle zu spielen und ich musste paarmal Schmunzeln, bei seinem Spiel.
Sonst ist die Story wirklich nichts Besonderes. Und gewisse Schauspieler sind wirklich hölzern. Denn wenn die schon keine Lust dazu hatten, dann sollen sie sich wirklich überlegen, einen dritten Teil zu machen.
Fazit: Eine nicht so gelungene Fortsetzung. Die Schauspieler spielen hölzern oder sind sogar deplatziert. Die Action ist gut. Man könnte aber noch an den Dialogen ein bisschen feilen!

Tout ce qui était bon dans le 1er est réchauffé dans le 2e.

4/30/16 Is a lot of the movie completely implausible? Yes. Do I care that much? no. It is funny to watch the crazy things happen. The plot moves along so fast that it doesn't give you the chance to even think about if any of it makes sense at all. Lots of action. Entertaining. I liked the quirky high pace of Red 1, and the feel of this film is the same.

Blah sequel to the decent but ultimately forgettable original. Too many characters and little action.
February 10, 2016
Great movie with a really good story and each character was fun to watch in their own way. The directer did a great job in giving each character enough action to make them all lovable. Some really great scenes. 5/5

Red 2. Follow on from the first which was amazing. Retired cia/black ops agent Frank Moses (willis) has the task of reuniting his old team of operatives after the threat of a missing nuclear device.
The on-slaught continues from the first movie and the group are plagued assassins, terrorists and government officials.
Wits, skills and each other to rely upon to stop the terrorists. Malkovich, Parker and Mirren along with Hopkins and Zeta-Jones make this movie old school but fun to watch. Comedy with action in built.

A solid follow up to Red with equal amounts action, comedy, and fun. A great cast and a movie both my wife and I enjoy. Malkovich is hysterical as always.
