A comedy about a veteran NYPD cop whose rare baseball card is stolen. Since it's his only hope to pay for his daughter's upcoming wedding, he recruits his partner to track down the thief, a memorabilia-obsessed gangster.

When Han opens fire with the mini-gun and it cuts to the empty cases falling on the floor, they are blank round cases, not from live rounds. See more »
Baby, check this out. Ha, a power washer? We need one of these.
On the patio in the back yard.
Should we go look at those window treatments?
Do you want one of those hotdogs? They're very good.
Baby, you are a heck of a homemaker. You know that? But we could just go to dinner. Er...
Well, you know. If you don't make it...

Red 2, a sequel to the popular Red, has Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, Mary Louise Parker, and John Malkovich back in the saddle, with Willis, Mirren, and Malkovich again dragged into their old jobs. Parker, who became Willis' girlfriend in Red, insists on going along.
This time the group is called upon because one of their old missions, Nightshade. The purpose of Nightshade was to smuggle a nuclear weapon into Russia piece by piece. Marvin Boggs (Malkovich) informs Frank Moses (Willis) that there are people following them, but Frank, interested in a normal life now, doesn't buy it. However, the second time Boggs returns to try to convince him, Boggs' car blows up and Boggs seems to be dead.
After Boggs' funeral, Frank is taken to a facility and questioned. A man named Jack Horton (Neal McDonough) enters the facility and starts obliterating everyone. He wants info from Frank, but the not dead Marvin breaks in and gets Frank out. Now they're on the run, with Sarah.
Victoria (Mirren) tells them she has accepted a contract from MI6 to kill Frank. She's not the only assassin. A major hit man, Han Jo-bae (Lee Byung-hun) gets a contract on Frank too from another source.
Victoria, who helps burn their car) It comes down to finding the inventor of the bomb, trying to find out where he hid it, and get it before opposing factions can use it.
Action-filled, funny, and wacky, with a tremendous cast that also includes Anthony Hopkins, this is a wonderful film, done in several European locations, so the scenery is great. I just wish Helen Mirren had had more to do. She's a scream as the chic, glamorous Victoria, wandering out into the road wearing fatigues and carrying a rifle, talking on the phone while pouring acid into a tub, and shooting two guns, one out of each window.
Everyone is terrific. Highly recommended.
