Movie Review: "Red 2"

Every year there's always a parade of seemingly unnecessary sequels, the thing with Red 2 is that I thought that the first Red had a good enough concept with fun enough characters that it would be a blast to revisit them.  Boy, was I wrong.  Red 2 is just a boring movie that tries too hard.  None of the action is real exciting, none of the jokes ever really work, and all of the actors just seem bored here.  While Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, and Helen Mirren are all back as retired secret agents on the run, the film lacks the wit and charm of its predecessor.  Not to mention the fact that the plot makes little to no sense, is bloated with too many underdeveloped characters, and therefore I just don't care.  Honestly, this is the first movie in a long time that I seriously thought about leaving the theater after about midway through.  The only shining light is Anthony Hopkins as a deranged mad scientist, other than that, Red 2 is a complete misfire.

I give Red 2 an F!
