9/10: An excellent action packed fun movie
Tuesday, December 1, 2015

Disclaimer: If you are a viewer that mainly prefers art-house-type movies, then you might as well ignore this review. In addition, if you're not able to take an action packed comedy sequels filled with humor than ignore this review, as well. We'll both be better off.Red 2 (2013) in my opinion is a good movie as the first one, but I still prefer the first movie better than this. The first time I saw it, I thought it was okay. But than again watching both movies separately on Blu-ray I realized I love the first one much better than this one. I like this movie not love just like. But the things that bothered me was this movie was time by time boring unlike the first one. I just got really tired and bored watching it for 2.hrs. You have now a new additions on the cast Anthony Hopkins, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Byung...

6/10: Entertaining
Friday, April 4, 2014

Red 2, like the original Red, is not meant to be taken seriously. In many of my other reviews I come down hard for ridiculous plot lines and lack of believability, but this flick was never intended to be taken seriously on any level. It is a comical take on action/spy movies and so it matters not what liberties are taken.If you enjoy Bruce Willis being Bruce Willis, you like non-stop action and you are in the mood for some mindless entertainment, it is worth a watch. No thinking required.Personally, I enjoyed the original Red and I like watching the "old codgers" play it up on the action scene. Yes, Helen Mirren is certainly getting old, but she still exudes sex appeal (which has little to do with age or looks) and she is amazingly credible as an action hero. I'd love to see her star in some serious action/spy films.Malkovich is his...

5/10: Failed to Live Up to the Hype and Level of the First Movie
Monday, October 14, 2013

Frank" (Bruce Willis) and "Sarah" (Mary-Louise Parker) are just trying to lead ordinary lives when "Marvin" (John Malkovich) appears out of nowhere and is subsequently killed right in front of them. After the funeral Frank is arrested and taken to a facility to be interrogated about a top-secret project he supposedly had knowledge of in his former capacity as a CIA agent. Unfortunately, while being interrogated, a group of trained assassins break in with the intent to kill him. He manages to escape and this results in a race by certain governments to either kill him to contain the information or to capture him in order to acquire the information. Now, although this film wasn't necessarily bad, I personally believe that it failed to live up to the hype and the level of the first movie. For starters, there were too many characters thrown in with not enough film to go around for all of them. That...
