‘Red 2’ milder, but improved villain

DVD Review

(Continued) —

However, some of the best moments involved the development of Dr. Bailey from what appears to be a drugged up mental patient, to something so much more. I’m not saying it’s 100 times better than Richard Dreyfuss’ job (though maybe at least 10 percent better) as the antagonist in the first “Red,” but no one seems to do maniacal better than Hopkins.

Wowing as usual is Mirren, who again steals pretty much every scene she’s ever in and makes the rest look like they barely memorized their script. Much like the first, I’m satisfied with the one viewing for popcorn flick’s sake, though won’t rule out seeing what happens next if a sequel is thrown out there. In the end, it’s worth two and a half out of five showdowns for “RED 2”.
