Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Ultimately, it's popcorn nihilism without the big laughs that helped distract from the casual approach to life and death in 'Red'."
‑ Anna Smith, Time Out
"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."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"A highly-watchable but stilted sequel that serves as a complacent sequel to the fun original."
‑ John Hanlon, Big Hollywood
"The cookie-cutter action sequences - car chases, fireballs, shoot-outs - are so-so and whereas the first film had a giddy cheekiness to it, the vibe here just feels forced, a common trait of sequels we really weren't hankering for."
‑ Jim Schembri, 3AW
"RED 2's support cast (including the new additions) are punching hard for this sequel to be as fun as the original; however the diluted globetrotting and Willis' clear 'pay-check' performance make you wish they'd retired this series after the original."
‑ Blake Howard, 2UE That Movie Show
"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."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"It's nice to see oldsters cavorting in kaboom movies, but a little of this stuff goes a long way."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"Much of the originality has faded and Morgan Freeman's absence is keenly felt, but the end result is still a fun, exciting adventure."
‑ Wesley Lovell, Cinema Sight
"Who knows if teenagers will appreciate this type of actioner? No matter. They get plenty of films designed for them. You go, gramps!"
‑ Bruce Bennett, Spectrum (St. George, Utah)
"RED 2 plays it pretty safe, carefully emulating the style and tone of its predecessor, so if you enjoyed the first one, RED 2 should tick the same boxes for you."
‑ Tim Martain, The Mercury
"Willis is self-evidently capable of kicking the asses of men considerably younger than himself. But at some point shouldn't he consider an alternative pastime?"
‑ Christopher Orr, The Atlantic
"What's interesting about 'RED 2' is that, not only is it better than its predecessor, it is miles better ..."
‑ James Rocchi, MSN Movies
"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."
‑ Jeff Beck, We Got This Covered
"The basic formula of the freefall of action, laughs and casting class of the 2010 first film is the same, but everything is less spontaneous, a little more forced and a tad overcooked this second time around... Mirren comes out best"
‑ Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile
"Silly but unapologetic entertainment."
‑ Rebecca Barry, Flicks.co.nz
