      A film about retired spies starring aging actors who should know better

      It's a strange world where so many great films don't appear to warrant a sequel and yet someone actually green-lit Weekend at Bernie's II. Most people would probably be hard pushed to remember Red, a rather average thriller about retired spies released in 2010, that got mediocre reviews and did middling box office. And yet here we are three years later with a sequel rather unimaginatively titled Red 2, it appears that no one told the filmmakers using a numeral in a sequel is considered bad form these days. Red stands for Retired Extremely Dangerous and the film centres around a gang of aging spies and contract killers whose peaceful retirement is disturbed by a Cold War relic.

      Actually it's Bruce Willis and his cohorts who are meant to be the real relics in this film, although to be fair most of them aren't actually that old...

      It's all subjective, I thought it was the worst film I have seen this year, maybe the worst film for a couple of years.

      Saw this yesterday. Very poor, in fact just plain dull. The more people who go to see it will just encourage them to make another. Whoops, to late!
