Red 2 brings back a team of top operatives for a quest to track down a missing nuclear weapon. In order to save the world, they have to rely on their wits and skills. They also need to face several assassins, terrorists and other bad people who wanted to get their hands on the dangerous device. The team had to do all they can to survive and save the world. The movie was inspired by a limited series comic book of the same name, written by Warren Ellis.
Watching Red 2 was part of my weekend plans last week. I was planning to watch it with a friend. As things go sometimes, a plan can get cancelled. Luckily another friend suggested we watch it. I came in the theater not having any idea what the movie is about. All I knew was that it was a Bruce Willis & Catherine Zeta-Jones movie.
What I like most about the movie is that the lead stars are all A-level celebrities who already proved themselves in the industry. Most movies these days highlight young rising stars in Hollywood. Red 2 is very refreshing in a way that we get to see Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich, Anthony Hopkins, Mary-Louise Parker & Catherine Zeta-Jones strut their stuff again. Adding one my favorite Korean hollywood star (Byung-hun Lee) in the mix is a nice bonus!
In all honesty, the movie didn’t have a solid plot but I didn’t care as I enjoyed the movie thoroughly! Red 2 was sooooooooooooooo funny! I was really laughing all throughout. While Red 2 was marketed as an action-comedy movie. I would say that it’s 80% comedy and 20% action. No complaints there because for me, we watch movies to entertain. Red 2 did just that and more. I left the movie house with a huge smile on my face and a good mood to boot!
My Rating for Red 2: 4 out of 5 stars
