In RED 2, the high-octane action-comedy sequel to the worldwide sleeper hit, retired black-ops CIA agent Frank Moses reunites his unlikely team of elite operatives for a global quest to track down a missing portable nuclear device. To succeed, they'll need to survive an army of relentless assassins, ruthless terrorists and power-crazed government officials, all eager to get their hands on the next-generation weapon. The mission takes Frank and his motley crew to Paris, London and Moscow. Outgunned and outmanned, they have only their cunning wits, their old-school skills, and each other to rely on as they try to save the world--and stay alive in the process.

My only complaint is that Brian Cox's character isn't in this one as much, pretty much a passing cameo.
Who would love this movie? Those that love action/ spy movies, as well as those who love comedies, because there are plenty of laugh out loud moments to be had.
Is it as good as the first? Like with most sequels the answer is "not quite" but it is worth the purchase if you loved RED.
There is a lot to like in this film, although really it should be a guilty pleasure. It's one of those action-comedy movies
(with a little romance thrown in) that features killings, torture, explosions, lies and double-crosses, but is so funny most
of the time that you can't take all the violence very seriously. It's not just Malkovich's character that has the funny one-liners
(although I'm sure he had more than anyone else). Pretty much everyone gets in at least a few good zingers.
It's been so long since the first film I had forgotten what RED even STOOD FOR (retired, extremely dangerous). I also
learned that ICE can mean something besides Immigration and Customs Enforcement (here, it means Incarcerate,
cannot execute) It also features as central to the story the exposure of a decades-old plot involving a fearsome
nuclear weapon made with RED MERCURY! [This had me scurrying to Wikipedia; it is truly amazing the weird stuff
you can learn from watching movies. Red mercury actually has featured in a number of sting operations of would-be
buyers of nuclear weapons material. Most "experts" agree that it does not exist while a few believe it really DOES
exist but those who know about it aren't allowed to acknowledge its existence. Even the name is subject to dispute,
as to whether the "red" refers to it first being developed by the Soviets, and others believing it refers to the material's
color. In any case there it is: a real-life rumor used as part of the plot.
Great cast + fast pace + lots of wry humor + plenty of money for blowing things up and special effects = large entertainment
value. I'll add that I hadn't watched Byung-Hun Lee before; he is a South Korean actor who has had great reviews in non-Hollywood films, and Red 2 is probably his biggest film role (in terms of commercial success). Although he's over 40, his physique and seemingly boundless energy would have me believing he's far younger, and he was fantastic in his role as a contract killer who (seemingly like everyone in the world of espionage) has a past history with Bruce Willis's character....
Not enough good comedy films these days; if you ever like an action/comedy film, you should enjoy this one.
