Review
In a most enjoyable moment I had while taking a trip to the Blue Mountains, I went to a special movie place in Katoomba called The Edge Cinema and I was able to enjoy the biggest screen that was the same size as the screen from Sydney's IMAX. It was a huge attraction and an amazing experience of going to the Edge for the first time. I saw an action comedy movie called RED 2 and above all, it succeeds my expectations with all blends of action for first-rate action film shooters. The plot concept is perhaps underdeveloped and elementary, it was packed with humorous remarks that make the flick go all into a laughing matter. The old-timers from the predecessor have all once again returned to wreck havoc in this instalment, this includes actors like Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Helen Mirren and Mary Louise Parker. These stars are shed with wittiness and old charm; two of the newcomers for the sequel include Anthony Hopkins and Catherine Zeta-Jones who are purely the stand-outs.

Not really ground-breaking or very structured, RED 2 is a tolerable film and partly provides a sensible humour for the average movie-goer. The best way for me to describe RED 2 is that it is a decent mid day movie that is not to be taken too seriously from action-fanatics. I would say that it has a low re-watch value.

Star rating: (3/5) Average
