Year 3 Day 35

movie: Red 2
starring: Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren
genre: Comedy, Action
year: 2013
format: Shaw Video On Demand

plot: A former assassin is forced to come out of semi-retirement in order to find a nuclear weapon thought lost in the cold war, while staying one step ahead of other assassins out to kill him and his girlfriend.

This is a sequel, and based on the comic book.

I did like this film, though I thought it went in circles as far as the way it was told. I liked the addition of Anthony Hopkins to the already established group, would have liked to have had more of him and Helen Mirren's characters personally.  I think they have amazing chemistry together. (if you haven't seen them in Hitchcock, you should)

The first film seemed to have the comedy as an underlining tongue in cheek sort of way, but part 2 didn't quite get the comedy right. It was as if they were trying too hard.
