Release Date: July 19, 2013
They are back! The ‘retired” team that consists of Frank Moses, Marvin Boggs, Victoria Winters and the sort-of newcomer Sarah Ross must join forces to save the world from complete chaos yet again. This time around, the team must stop a nuclear device known as Nightshade, which consists of red mercury. While this sequel is not quite as good as the original, this is still a really entertaining and fun movie to watch. If you enjoyed the first “Red,” then you will absolutely like this one as well.
In about every single scene, there will be an instant that will have you laughing out loud and occasionally smacking your own knee due to the laughter, especially with the scenes that John Malkovich are in. Malkovich absolutely steals the show in this one. There is never a single dull moment on screen with him. Catherine Zeta-Jones and Anthony Hopkins are two new actors involved with the “Red” franchise and they both are able to master their roles, even if their screen time is not all that much.
This, along with the first “Red,” movie is a movie that I just would not be able to turn the channel if I ever came across it on television. If you are looking for a movie to just kick back and relax and actually enjoy, then “Red 2” is for you.
