RED 2 is a 2013 sequel to RED. Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Parker, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Lee Byung-hun, Anthony Hopkins, Helen Mirren, and David Thewlis star. A mindless action film with lots of explosions is all this is, but if you liked the first one you'll like this. We liked the first one. If you didn't, move along, nothing to see here.
Slant Magazine gives it 1 out of 4 stars and says, "Red 2 essentially weaponizes middle-aged malaise" and calls it "bland". The Atlantic bemoans the trend of aging action stars and says, "I can't be the only film-goer made nervous by the prospect of Die Hard With a Pension." Empire Online gives it 3 out of 5 stars and closes by describing it as "A fun, frothy return for Frank and his creaky commandos." Vulture warns, "It’s funnier than its predecessor, but also less human". Rotten Tomatoes has a critics score of 42% and an audience score of 64%.
