RED 1, as you may remember, stood for “Retired and Extremely Dangerous” which is over the hill operatives who were licensed to kill. This included Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren, and Mary Louise Parker. So this is a sequel picking up where the other one left off. Bruce Willis is now happily married in somewhat less than domestic bliss with Mary Louise Parker. Helen Mirren is now also retired, John Malkovich feels as if everyone is after him, and the plot is incredibly convoluted. We can’t tell who the good or bad guys are, and who’s after who. But this is a FUN movie. It’s got actors and actresses who are really having a good time. This movie won’t win any awards come Oscar time, but it really is a fun summer movie, that has just enough mayhem to count as a summer movie. 3 and a half stars.
