Pete and Brigette Review Red 2

Red 2


Describe it in 25 words or less.

Pete: A spy wants to retire but discovers that instead he, his wife, and some old friends must focus on saving a city from mass destruction.

Brigette: Frank Moses’ attempts at retirement are thwarted yet again when a nuclear device needs to be recovered and disarmed.


Pete: Thriller/Comedy

Brigette: Comic Book Adaptation

Who was your favorite character and why?

Pete: Marvin Boggs because everything that came out of his mouth was brilliant, funny, or both.

Brigette: Marvin because I’m a sucker for a loveable loon.

Who was your least favorite character and why?

Pete: Jack Horton because of his over-the-top arrogance.

Brigette: Jack Horton because he took orders without question.

How was the casting?

Pete: Brilliant, I don’t think it could have been any better.

Brigette: Impeccable.

Did it grab you immediately or did it take a while?

Pete: Grabbed me immediately and kept me entertained the entire time.

Brigette: It was like seeing an old friend; you’re keen to catch up and it feels like you never spent any time apart.

Favorite quote:

Marvin: “If there’s one thing I know, it’s women and covert operations.”
Frank: “Marvin, that’s two things.”
Han Cho Bai: “No, grasshopper. It is not.”

Brigette: “Why don’t they just dip our balls in honey and stake us to an ant farm!” – Marvin

How was the soundtrack?

Brigette: The score by Alan Silvestri is excellent and you can listen to it on YouTube here. We’ve put the other songs from the film on Spotify and Rdio.

Is it part of a series and have you seen the rest of the series?

Pete: Watched “Red” and really enjoyed it… so it was just a matter of time before I saw this one and I’m looking forward to future ones.

Brigette: I have seen the first one (Red) and enjoyed it very much but this one I LOVED!

How was the ending?

Pete: Really well planned out and not entirely predictable. Hopefully there will be a Red 3.

Brigette: It keeps you guessing until the last moment and I’m hoping it indicates a Red 3.

What was the moral of the story?

Pete: Sometimes an enemy can become a friend if you both want the same thing.

Brigette: Sometimes you need to decide for yourself what is right and what is wrong and not just blindly follow orders.

Who would you recommend it to?

Pete: Espionage enthusiasts and James Bond film fans.

Brigette: Anyone who enjoyed the first film, Bruce Willis fans and people who love to see their comic books on the big screen.
