A refreshing action comedy
19 December 2013 | by See all my reviews

This film is about the missions of a bunch of retired ex-spies who are still extremely dangerous.

It's refreshing to have an action comedy! It's not easy to have all the killings and explosions happening, and yet maintaining a light hearted and fun tone. "Red 2" succeeds again in reaching the balance, making it enjoyable and fun. There are many cool scenes such as Helen Mirren firing guns with both hands towards opposite directions from a car. Mary Louise Parker's character is also fun, she seems not to know how to do anything but she is still so cool and funny. It's nice to see an action film having a big female presence, it's such a pleasant change. All the characters I enjoyed watching "Red 2", and maybe there will be another sequel?
