RED 2

Red 2 is the action-comedy sequel to the worldwide 2010 hit bringing former black-ops CIA agent Frank Moses (Bruce Willis) out of retirement. He travels the world with his elite team in search of a missing portable nuclear device which threatens the balance of world power. Survival is the objective as terrorists, assassins and corrupt government officials are on their trail.

Bruce Willis looking unmotivated and weary, is joined by a star-studded cast including Anthony Hopkins, John Malkovich, Helen Mirren and Catherine Zeta-Jones, who collectively fail to fuel much interest.

Light on laughter and an over-complicated plot makes Red 2 hard to follow, dull and unengaging. Shoot-outs, car chases and senseless violence will intermittently enthral but the blandness is prevalent. (MM)
