Movie Review: RED 2

I don't know where to start the review for this movie.

This movie was just brilliant. This is easily one of my top picks for this year.

When RED was released in 2010 I was not even aware of this movie. I was browsing on imdb on the list of Bruce Willis movies and this came up. After reading up on this movie and the stunning cast, I was surprised that I never heard about this movie nor seen it.

When I saw it, I was laughing non stop and absolutely loved the action. I wanted to be as bad-ass as Helen Mirren's character. John Malkovich was quirky and really funny by trying so hard not to be funny. 

When I came to know they are making a sequel for this movie, I was skeptical. Will they be able to live up to the first movie? Sometimes the movie is so good just by making the sequel might leave a bitter taste just like the Ocean 10 , 11.. series. 

Oh Boy was I wrong?? This movie was just as good as the first one with the added bonus of Catherine Zeta Jones & Anthony Hopkins. 

Mary-Louise Parker was a surprise package. I mean she was there in the first movie as the confused girlfriend of Bruce Willis. In the second part she was given a meatier role. 

Ladies you have Byung-hun Lee to drool on. His introduction in the movie is just worth the money. I was drooling all over and that man can work a suit. Barney Stinson would be so proud of him!!

The movie goes all over Europe with everyone hired to kill each other. The story is not that great but the action and comedy just makes up for the lack of it. 

So people go out and catch this movie in the nearest movie theater.

My rating: 4.75/5 :)
