Retired C.I.A. agent Frank Moses reunites his unlikely team of elite operatives for a global quest to track down a missing portable nuclear device. If you liked the first RED, you will like this 2nd one even better, trust me on this. It is funny, witty, snappy, lively, sarcastic, engrossing and entertaining. Anthony Hopkins, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich, Bruce Willis, Catherine Zeta Jones and Brian Cox; what a cast…. yet it’s just a better version of Expendables and with better actors.
This is a very enjoyable film, as the story continues with the retired – and more dangerous than anybody else – agents. Frank and his comrades find themselves treading all over the globe and finding conflict at each stop. If you haven’t seen the first film, you can still enjoy this piece. You won’t understand all of the relationships immediately, but the story stands on its own. And it does a very good job at that.
The movie was so much fun. It has clever and well-thought out jokes throughout the film and they keep coming and are skillfully timed. The action is thrilling – non-stop action to get your blood pumping filled this movie. It has the same feel of cool, unreasonable stunts and explosions from the first movie, but they also added a lot more hand-to-hand combat, which is still very amusing to watch and excellently choreographed. Comparable movies are Expandables, RIPD and Tower Heist.
The acting is great and the story was well-written with actual twists. The soundtrack and sound effects made all the guns and explosions that much more convincing and enjoyable. In total, RED 2 is much better than the first one, and I really enjoyed the first movie. You should check it out if you like funny, entertaining and action packed movies! You won’t regret it! Can’t wait for RED3
