‘Red 2′ Review

6 November 2013 6:32 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Parker, Anthony Hopkins, Helen Mirren, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Byung Hun Lee | Written by Jon Hoeber, Erich Hoeber | Directed by Dean Parisot

Retired CIA agent Frank Moses (Willis) reunites his team of elite operatives for an abundance of action-packed adventures and cracking comedic moments as their new mission takes them across the globe – to Paris, London and Moscow. Outgunned and outmanned, they have only their cunning wits and old-school skills to rely on as they try to save the world from nuclear disaster.

I absolutely loved Red. Taking the idea of a group of retired spooks and putting them back into the field, dealing with all the fish-out-of-water hilarity that ensues, was a brilliant idea. And the casting on the original film was sublime. Bruce Willis playing someone not that agile, not that willing to put his life on the line, a la John McClane in Die Hard, »

The Raid: Redemption Remake To Be Penned By Battleship Scribes

28 August 2013 7:56 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Do you hear that? That’s the sound of hundreds of action cinephiles softly weeping around the world.

In one of the more dismaying news items of the month (and that’s including the widely contested casting of Ben Affleck as Batman), the American remake of Indonesian martial arts flick The Raid: Redemption, which just clocked in at #21 on We Got This Covered’s list of the Top 100 Action Movies, has just landed in the hands of Battleship writers Erich and Jon Hoeber.

I’ll wait while you scan that again to make sure you read it right. Unfortunately, this is not some kind of a prank. American film studio Screen Gems, trusted with the rights to remake a terrific genre flick, has inexplicably sanctioned the same writers who brought us the godawful Whiteout and so-bad-it-hurt Battleship to rewrite the script for the American version.

Film Review: Despite Flopping as a Comic Book Movie, ‘Red 2’ Coasts By with Well-Written Characters

20 July 2013 11:01 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – If you didn’t see the DC Entertainment splash screen when this “Red 2” sequel kicks off with the fake death of one of its usual suspects, you wouldn’t mind that the rest of the film feels nothing like a comic book movie except for its animated transitions between scenes.

Rating: 2.5/5.0

No “comic book fan” would say this movie does the intensely cult-favorite genre any justice or holds up in even close to the same league as other DC films like “The Dark Knight,” “Watchmen” and various “Superman” attempts.

So despite this massive missed opportunity, abandoning that failure does allow you to find a silver lining in other redeeming qualities. In a film that packs in so many “A”-listers, this time it pays off. Each one brings a uniquely defined and mostly memorable addition to an overall story that’s somewhere in between great and too thin. »

'Red 2' Review: 10 Things to Know About the Bruce Willis Spy Sequel

19 July 2013 3:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The gang's (mostly) all back for "Red 2," the sequel to the 2010 hit about aging spies who are "Retired, Extremely Dangerous," and it's even -- dare we say -- more fun than the first one.

Bruce Willis stars again as former CIA black ops agent Frank Moses, only this time his girlfriend (Mary-Louise Parker) wants a piece of the action. He's joined by his psychotic partner in mayhem, Marvin (John Malkovich), the gun-toting Victoria (Helen Mirren), and several newcomers to the franchise, including Catherine Zeta-Jones and Anthony Hopkins as Katja and Bailey (more on them below).

In this second go-round, Frank is trying to stay retired, but a leaked document linking him and Marvin to a still-hot Cold War operation lands them on everyone's hit list. As they try to save their own necks, the fate of the world falls on their shoulders as well.

18 July 2013 5:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

After re-watching Robert Schwentke’s original movie over the weekend, I’m even more excited for the arrival of Red 2, which is heading into Us cinemas tomorrow.

The sequel sees Dean Parisot take over the helm in Schwentke’s place, with the latter focusing instead on directing R.I.P.D. (which sees him reunite with the ever-brilliant Mary-Louise Parker). And with just one more day to go before Red 2 hits in the States, we’ve got two new TV spots to share, in which we get to see Bruce Willis and co. in action.

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 »

2 New TV Spots for Red 2 – ‘Russia’s Deadliest’

2 July 2013 7:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

There’s no denying that this July is one of the busiest, blockbuster-heavy months we’ve seen for a long time at the cinema, and it’s going to be interesting to see how high each of them soar. Without a doubt, Red 2 is one of the handful I’m looking forward to most.

Robert Schwentke’s original 2010 blockbuster was one of the funniest action-comedies we’ve seen in a long time, and the sequel is understandably something I’ve been excited about for a while now.

All that we’ve seen from the film in recent weeks and months has promised another brilliant action ride. And with just a few weeks left on the clock, Summit have released two new TV spots that set the mood wonderfully.

2 New TV Spots for Red 2 – ‘Back in the Game’

18 June 2013 1:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Robert Schwentke’s Red was very much a highlight for action-comedy fare in recent years, and I’m really looking forward to seeing Bruce Willis and co. return this summer for the sequel, Red 2.

The chemistry between these characters was brilliant the first time around, and that has me excited for what’s still to come. We saw an awesome first full-length trailer a few weeks back. And with its mid-July Us release date fast approaching, Summit have released two great new TV spots to help get us back in the right frame of mind.

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.

7 New Red 2 Character Posters

4 June 2013 9:45 PM, PDT | Upcoming-Movies.com | See recent Upcoming-Movies.com news »

The first Red was a winner all the way for Summit. The film directed by Robert Schwentke holding a $58 million production budget accumulated just under $200 million worldwide. But that's not the winning part of the deal; the film provided fun action galore, with a very-well-known cast who clearly enjoyed their time in the adaptation of the limited comic book series of the same name created by Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner. Now, the sequel is up, and Red 2 should easily pass the first film's cume come its July 19th release date. Dean Parisot takes over the director's reigns, helming from the script by Erich Hoeber and Jon Hoeber. Thanks to our friends at IMPawards, we have several Korean character posters below which feature Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Helen Mirren, Mary-Louise Parker, Anthony Hopkins, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Lee Byung-hun. »
