I never got to watch it.

I purchased Red 1 & 2. I mistakenly clicked on Red 2 first and immediately shut it off... then watched Red 1. It took a couple of days to find the time to watch '2' but Amazon would not allow me to view it. I'm assuming because of the 6 seconds it played on my computer. I checked and found out I have no way to complain, or request a refund, or request a viewing date, I'm just out the $2.99. I did see this in the theater and liked it better than '1'. The one star is my way of complaining about Amazon policy. It's actually a pretty god flick,

Not as good as the first RED, but more importantly it was cut just like Amazon's offering of RED 1. This is far from being the first of movies that I have bought or rented from Amazon. Getting pretty tired of this policy, not to mention feeling ripped off. I am thinking about not renewing my Prime subscription which is getting more expensive without any prior notification. Amazon's getting to big for it's britches, and the last place you should be cutting corners is in Prime subscription services................I am far from being the only person who feels this way. This practice feels real close to misrepresentation and extortion. People are tired of getting ripped off at every corner. Wake up! Stop this practice, we are the cash paying customers!

A fitting sequel with a great mix of action comedy and characters
Verified purchase
Red 2 was a worthy sequel. It brought together all the major players from the first film including Bruce Willis as Frank Moses, John Malkovich as Marvin, Mary-Louise Parker as Sarah, and Helen Mirren as Victoria. Frank and Marvin are wanted again for something called Operation Nightshade, a secret plan to smuggle a nuclear weapon into Moscow during the Cold War. A secret U.S. organization wants this information and hires Jack Horton played by Neal McDonough and Han Cho Bai played by Lee Byung-Hun to find it. They chase Moses and friends across America, France, England and finally Russia. It turns out a crazed scientist named Bailey, played by Anthony Hopkins, was the brains behind the bomb and know where it is.

Like the first Red movie there is a good mix of action, comedy and characters. It doesn’t take itself too seriously either and is always happy with throwing in some comedic moments. The characters are all a little quirky as well which makes them fun to watch especially when Frank and Marvin get talking.

There’s a twist at the end as well to keep the viewer on their toes.

Like sooooo good!!! Cast is INCREDIBLE!!! This movie is so fun and exciting! Bruce W. sexy and suave as always, John M. oh my what's not to like about him? He is an incredible actor and always nails his roles. I could watch him all day! Helen M. WOW! I wanna be like her when I grow up for sure. Also Mary Louise P...such a beautiful girl next door and plays her role fabulously. Catherine Zeta J. always gorgeous and sultry. Anthony H...he is simply brilliant in everything he does...and I really loved the Koren guy in this too...sooo HOT! Overall, such an enjoyable flic. Non-stop action and paced just great! Comedy balanced so well with the drama/story plot. It's a must see!

Destroyed by Commercials
Verified purchase
As much as I enjoyed the first Reds, I was looking forward to this one. And It might actually be a good movie -- in the farcical way the first one was -- but alas, I will never know. Because Amazon is offering it via Prime -- which I pay for, every month -- but with commercial interruptions. Movie, movie, movie -- then blam, three or so commercials outta nowhere, flow interrupted. Then, sudden resumption of movie, and just when you're getting back into the rhythm of it, blam again, just like someone came into the room while you were watching pay TV, and clicked you over onto the home and garden network. This hybrid is neither fish nor fowl, but sort of like a feathered flatworm.
So, Amazon, not only am I going to find something else to watch, without commercial interruption, but it won't be on Amazon at ALL. After an experience like this, I'm going over to Netflix. Is that what you had in mind, Amazon?
You have wasted my time. And, as little as I use Amazon Prime's home-delivery of products, yet pay about $7 a month for the "privilege" of subscribing, I'm rethinking the whole Amazon Prime cocktail.
I pay, to watch movies filled with commercials? Do you think we're nuts?
Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich: Do you want to have your efforts sliced and diced like this? Because late in your careers, your box-office take is dependent on your reputations, and this hybrid disserves them.

Great Movie
Verified purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed this film, especially Helen Mirren, whom I have been a very infatuated fan for a number of years. The entire cast is fantastic. One of the best things is that Chuck Norris is NOT in this feature! A perfect mixture of "Kick Butt & Comedy"! The entire cast is great and despite my personal favorites, it is quite difficult to select on or two over the rest, they all did an excellent job. A perfect sequel for "RED". - - truly waiting for a RED 3!

Great followup to RED
Verified purchase
Okay if you haven't seen this film yet you must. It's a great continuation of the story threads started in RED 1. Willis is great in this as well as John Malkovich and Helen Mirren.

My only complaint is that Brian Cox's character isn't in this one as much, pretty much a passing cameo.

Who would love this movie? Those that love action/ spy movies, as well as those who love comedies, because there are plenty of laugh out loud moments to be had.

Is it as good as the first? Like with most sequels the answer is "not quite" but it is worth the purchase if you loved RED.

We love RED and RED 2
Verified purchase
The RED movies are fun action movies with great characters. The script, acting, locations, choreography, street chases, quips, and interactions are so entertaining.

The only bad word used is s___, and that is rare. Other than small facial wounds that heal quickly, there's no blood. The rating is PG-13.

I have no idea why there are people who are disappointed with their digital purchase at a terrific low price, and don't understand that there is NO REIMBURSEMENT of digital property.

I highly recommend RED and RED 2.
