After the success of the earlier film in 2010, Ernest Borgnine always held out hope he'd be around to reprise his role as Henry the records keeper in this movie. When interviewed in April 2012, he mentioned there was talk about it over the years, and made one request to the producers. "I told them if they do it, I want to carry a gun this time." He kept in touch with Screenwriters Jon Hoeber and Erich Hoeber, and in the end would have had a major role in a sequence at the start of the movie. When Borgnine passed away in July 2012, three months prior to the start of production, his scenes were reconfigured and would feature an uncredited Titus Welliver. See more »

Baby, check this out. Huh, a power washer? We need one of these.
On the patio in the back yard.
Should we go look at those window treatments?

This was a very enjoyable film. The story continues with the retired - and more dangerous than anybody else - agents. Frank and his comrades find themselves treading all over the globe and finding conflict at each stop.
If you haven't seen the first film, you can still enjoy this piece. You won't understand all of the relationships immediately, but the story stands on its own. And it does a very good job at that.
The movie was so much fun. It had clever and well-thought out jokes throughout the film. The jokes kept coming and were very skillfully timed.
The action was thrilling. Along with the jokes, non-stop action to get your blood pumping filled this film. They kept the same feel of cool, unreasonable stunts and explosions from the first movie, but they also added a lot more hand-to-hand combat, which was still very amusing to watch and excellently choreographed.
The acting was great and the story was well-written with actual twists. The soundtrack and sound effects made all the guns and explosions that much more convincing and enjoyable.
This film had a much higher body count than the last one, but still managed to keep it pretty light-hearted. If you liked the first one, this film will not disappoint. If you haven't seen the first one it's still very entertaining to watch.
