red_2Reviews for this film from our members:

  • [New – 1/2/14] | Dragan Antulov @ Draxblog VI [Croatian]
  • Samuel Castro @ Ochoymedio.info [Spanish]
    • Excerpt: Sin la chispa de la primera película, se vuelven a unir grandes actores para pasar un buen rato y hacer el ridículo para nosotros.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: Romances and rivalries are the themes upon which “Red 2” revolves and they spin quite merrily.
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: RED 2 is neither an improvement nor a significant step down; the movie is, like its predecessor, completely ordinary and mediocre in a middle-of-the-road sort of way.
  • Dustin Freeley @ Movies About Gladiators.com
  • Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
    • Excerpt: Sly and Savvy, it’s a classy, globe-trotting action comedy for baby-boomers.
  • Vadym Grygoriev @ kinoblog.com [Ukrainian]
  • Blake Howard @ Graffiti With Punctuation
  • MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: Smart, breezy spy action, with an of-the-moment vibe that takes it post-post-9/11 and into the Wikileaks era of global politics.
  • Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
    • 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.
  • Oktay Ege Kozak @ Oregon Herald
    • 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”.
  • Wesley Lovell @ Cinema Sight
    • Excerpt: With most of the group back together for this second go-around, we fall into an entertaining, if all-too-familiar formula of action comedy.
  • Brent McKnight @ Beyond Hollywood
  • Darren Mooney @ the m0vie blog
    • Excerpt: The franchise isn’t in too far into the RED…
  • Jason Pirodsky @ Expats.cz
    • Excerpt: For what it’s worth, Red 2 is better written and staged than its predecessor, lighter and funnier, with more coherent action scenes and an expanded cast. And I still don’t give a damn.
  • Jamie S. Rich @ Oregon Live
    • 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.
  • Marcio Sallem @ Em Cartaz [Portuguese]
  • Amir Siregar @ Flick Magazine [Indonesian]
  • Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
    • Excerpt: While the comedy…occasionally works, the action elements are mostly a drag.
