Synopsis: Frank Moses and his motley crew of retired assassins return for a second outing.
Release Date: July 19, 2013
Thoughts: In 2010, RED was an unexpected fall hit, propelling a sequel forward with much of the original cast in tow. The nicely constructed first film was an oddball mix of action, comedy, and violence that played into the strengths of people like Bruce Willis while letting a star of Helen Mirren’s ilk go guns ‘a blazin’. The sequel looks to be more of the same and in true Oceans 11 fashion more big names have been added to the list like Oscar winners Catherine Zeta-Jones and Anthony Hopkins. With new director Dean Parisot (taking over for Robert Schwentke who had his hands full with R.I.P.D) I’m hoping the same light touch is maintained, making this second film the first of several sequels.
