A Sequel that Keeps the Level of the First Movie
22 December 2013 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The retired CIA agent Frank Moses (Bruce Willis) is in love with Sarah Ross (Mary-Louise Parker) and enjoying their normal life in two. Out of the blue, Marvin Boggs (John Malkovich) meets Frank in the supermarket and tells that the Wikileaks has released the information that they had participated and know the whereabouts of the Nightshade, a portable nuclear weapon that was smuggled in pieces and hidden in Russia. Now the top agents on the world are under contract to seek them out to know where Nightshade is.

The trio travels to Paris and teams-up with the Russian Katja (Catherine Zeta-Jones) to track down the former Russian Agent The Frog (David Thewlis) to get more information about the operation. They learn that the brilliant inventor Dr. Edward Bailey (Anthony Hopkins) might know where the weapon is. They discover that Bailey has been interned in an asylum in London by the MI-16 for thirty-two years and the British Victoria (Helen Mirren) joins the team. They rescue Bailey and find that the nuclear device is hidden in the Kremlin. Soon the dangerous South Korean Han (Byung-hun Lee) joins the group expecting to retrieve the weapon. But the dangerous killer Jack Horton (Neal McDonough) is hunting Frank down and will not stop until he recovers the nuclear bomb.

"Red 2" is the sequel of "Red" that keeps the same level of entertainment of the first movie. The plot is full of action and humor and works perfectly, supported by a stellar cast and magnificent locations. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Red 2: Aposentados e Ainda Mais Perigosos" ("Red 2: Retired and Still More Dangerous")
