Red 2: A Quick Capsule Review
Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Inherently there is nothing wrong with Red 2. Problem is there’s nothing particularly right with it either. Much like the original it plays it’s tropes, stages the action and delivers it’s one liners but it does it with such a lack of passion you can’t help but think that the film was made by a committee. The biggest problem is lead Bruce Willis who has taken to sleep walking through these later stages of his career, taking the pay cheques but do little more than turning up. Shame as Mirren at least looks like she’s having fun.
Best Bit: Helen Mirren is superb. Again.
