“R.E.D.2” ... exciting reversals of fortune

Reviewed by Nancy Snipper

Like a James Bond film without the Hollywood flash, this action film, directed by Dean Parisot, pits Frank Moses (Bruce Willis) and his best buddy against power-crazed English and Russian government officials – all in search of the man who made a missing portable nuclear bomb dice because they want it. They all believe he’s a loose canon who knows where this bomb is and wants to use it. But as facts come to life, his former co-agents now against him end up on his side. They want to find the scientist, who everyone thought was killed – Dr Bailey (Anthony Hopkins) – who made the device so this Doctor can lead them to it. It turns out that the good Doctor is really not dead and he’s a bad guy. It’s a great team of sure-shooting women and men who are over 45. They all make this film a lot of fun while delivering clever lines and lots of action.
