Red 2 - Movie Review: Stale And Predictable

Red 2 is an action-comedy based on the DC Comics graphic mini series created by Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner. It is about retired agents deemed RED or 'Retired Extremely Dangerous', by their respective agencies, who are called back into action by circumstances beyond their control.

In the film, retired CIA agent Frank Moses (Bruce Willis) is leading a sedentary life with his girlfriend Sarah (Mary-Louise Parker). Out of the blue, he finds himself becoming a fugitive, when he runs away from a "reliably nasty" FBI official (Neal McDonough) who is interrogating him about an old document that's leaked on the Internet, linking him and fellow retiree Marvin Boggs (John Malkovich) to a top secret Cold War weapon.

Now on the run, Frank along with Sarah and Marvin, not only have to clear their names, but discover that they also have to contend with two other assassins; their old friend - the sharpshooter Victoria (Helen Mirren), who's been contracted by MI6 to kill them, and Han (Lee Byung-hun), Frank's dangerously murderous old protege-turned-contract killer.

As the three of them zip from Texas to London to Paris to Hong Kong to Moscow, they reconnect with loads of new characters including Frank's ex-girlfriend a Russian Spy, Katja (Catherine Zeta-Jones) and British scientist Edward Bailey (Anthony Hopkins), who's been locked up for decades and may know the whereabouts of the missing weapons.
