Yet More Fun . . .,
This review is from: Red 2 [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I watched RED 2 (Retired, Extremely Dangerous) at my local theater. Frankly, I like this movie a lot! And everyone else in the theater seemed to like it too.
The film has a great cast with good acting. Great script, screenplay, direction all combine to make this an enjoyable (and yes, fun!) film.
Catherine Zeta Jones is great as a Russian General - incredibly hot, she prompts a jealous reaction from Frank Moses' wife (Ms. Parker). Reprising their roles from RED is Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, Mary Louis Parker, and John Malkovich. Brian Cox rounds out a superb cast.
On Rotten Tomatoes, this film garnered just a 42% rating from the critics - this says a lot more about the collective incompetence of the critics, since the film is objectively a fabulous action/adventure/comedy.
The bottom line is this: ignore the critics and go see it - especially if you enjoy action/comedy and you enjoyed the first (RED).
