Excerpt: A very, very okay way to pass the time on HBO, “RED 2” isn’t exactly bothersome or an out-and-out embarrassment, but it just has no raison d’être.

Excerpt: I’d call the Red franchise “Expendables with geriatrics” if I didn’t know the average age of yester-year action stars in The Expendables is sixty, and that’s when they cleverly hire young blood like Liam Hemsworth to get the number down. Perhaps a better comparison would be “Expendables without as much HGH”, or “Expendables with highly respected thespians goofing off and cashing a fat paycheck, plus Bruce Willis”.
Excerpt: If you liked the first one, you’ll dig a good portion of the follow-up, despite a pervasive air of “been there, done that.” Willis appears to have finally grown bored of his own shtick, and Malkovich spends most of the movie looking humiliated.
