My opinion

Sarah: Where did you get the bodies?
Victoria: From my freezer.

Despite the fact that there’s a cast of well known stars acting in this film, I didn’t like this film so much. Apparently, this successor is of the same level as the original film “Red”. So I’m not going to bother to watch the latter either.

Red 2

Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Helen Mirren, Anthony Hopkins … You would actually expect this to be a gem of a movie. It’s pretty funny at times (it’s scarce though) and the action scenes are usually excellent. But the story itself was implausible, chaotic and in short ridiculous. The only one whose presence I appreciated the most, was Byung-hun Lee who plays an ice-cold Oriental assassin with a high Bruce Lee content.

Red 2

The biggest minus was the interpretation of Sarah by Marie-Louise Parker. She got on my nerves very quickly with her teeny innocence and the ever-recurring effort she made to be one of the guys. The only thing missing was her jumping around like a little schoolgirl while clapping her hands and being cheerful. The only good scene was when she got stuck in the narrow alley in the chase. For the rest, it was a disturbing irritant element throughout the whole movie.

Red 2

Apparently the film is derived from a DC Comic. That explains the transitions between different parts and also the fact that they travel half the world to solve the case. Not very credible and actually a pretty laughable fact. Anthony Hopkins did his thing the way he always does. To be honest, I think the man actually has the same look and feel in every film. Not very original, but he’s and always will be a top actor. Red 2” is an action movie with a big comic-book feeling and not so succesful humor. That’s probably the reason why I fell asleep half way and had to re-watch the missed part afterwards.

My rating 4/10
