Consensus: While it's still hard to argue with its impeccable cast or the fun they often seem to be having, Red 2 replaces much of the goofy fun of its predecessor with empty, over-the-top bombast.

Ultimately, it's popcorn nihilism without the big laughs that helped distract from the casual approach to life and death in 'Red'.

No movie with this much ass-kicking should feel so lifeless.

A highly-watchable but stilted sequel that serves as a complacent sequel to the fun original.

This is a likable, almost gentle comedy and also a violent action film about the possibility of a nuclear bomb going off in a major city.

Ridiculously action-packed and just as endearing, Red 2 is why we go to sequels despite our well-earned cynicism about studios churning them out.

Much of the originality has faded and Morgan Freeman's absence is keenly felt, but the end result is still a fun, exciting adventure.

It's nice to see oldsters cavorting in kaboom movies, but a little of this stuff goes a long way.

We Got This Covered

Red 2 fails to capture the fun of the first film, but manages to hold on to its weaker traits, such as a bloated runtime and an inundation of mindless action sequences, turning this into a rather forgettable affair.
