Red 2 (2013)

Just watch it for Helen Mirren and Byung-hun Lee.  Don’t go in expecting substance, just pop your popcorn and junk food and turn off your brain.  Oh, and try and forget it’s a sequel.

The first one was sooooo good that I expected them to build substantially and instead it feels like a guy-who-rounds-up-his-buddies-to-save-the-world B movie.  The killers giving relationship advice was okay but the relationship doesn’t get much work and Willis is mostly just annoyingly written through the whole movie, hopefully not his fault…

My favorite part after the car chase would be Carmen Sandiego.

This isn’t really a spy movie as it is more a Hollywood action movie thinly painted with the blandest of spy movie tropes.

Let’s put it on the list but it was disappointing all the same.
