Red 2 not only delivers the action, laughs and thrills of the original — in many ways it surpasses it. Read full review
About halfway through Red 2, in the midst of all the laughs and action, suddenly Anthony Hopkins shows up, and he doesn't care one bit that nobody is going to notice his acting in a movie like this. He's going for the Oscar anyway. Read full review
I did my homework and watched the original "RED." It was just as stupid as this movie, yet I liked it a little more. Read full review
In its long, punishing final act, Red 2 goes beyond its mandate as a lark to pose as a true action caper.
