Last night Ann and I caught an early screening of this movie at our nearby cinema. My first reaction is: if you liked Red, you will enjoy Red 2. The same cast of characters (sans Morgan Freeman) is back and the plot (though it was a bit contrived) was snappy, fun and kept you engaged. In a sense Red 2 (like Red) is a spoof on action-packed spy movies. Your imagination and sense of credulity is stretched a bit as over-the-hill retired-geezer-spies take on much younger die-hard type of enemies and prevail - sort of.
It was apparent by the laugh-out-loud reactions of the audience that this flick was packed with funny moments. John Malkovich's facial expressions cracked me up and the interactions between him and Bruce Willis had me smiling. All in all, I liked Red 2 and would recommend it to geezers like me who enjoy a bit of over the top action in a funny movie.
On a scale of ten, give it ★★★★★★★.
