Red 2 not only delivers the action, laughs and thrills of the original — in many ways it surpasses it.

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...

I did my homework and watched the original "RED." It was just as stupid as this movie, yet I liked it a little more.

Philadelphia Inquirer

By David Hiltbrand
In its long, punishing final act, Red 2 goes beyond its mandate as a lark to pose as a true action caper.

USA Today

Red 2 is one of those sequels that's easier to follow if you've seen the original but more entertaining if you haven't.

Pure Entertainment (something the critics don't understand)

By elkhunter
This is a fun movie!! As someone said: No robots, no aliens, no superheroes who can leap tall buildings in a single bound. Like The Expendables franchise, this is just plain fun entertainment....

By MedRed
The first Red wasn't the best movie, but it was charming and entertaining. For Red 2, the budget got bigger, but the quality of the movie got worse. Red 2 focuses too much on love life of Bruce...

Sequel makes for a good movie

By TLC_28
I saw Red 2 with my 19 year old daughter and 2 15 year old girls. We all thought it was a good movie worth seeing. I normally don't like sequels. For a sequel this was a really good movie. You didn't...

Bruce Willis will be 60 in 2 years, John Malkovich turned 60 this year, and Helen Mirren will be 70 in 2 years and they all kick butt in this movie! Yes, the scenes are highly computerized and...
