The critical consensus

The result plays like the sixth installment in a flogged-to-death franchise rather than an eager and energetic second.

**(*)(*)(*)Henry Fitzherbert, Daily Express, 31/07/2013

By dint of its expensive globetrotting production and familiar stars, Red 2 is a passable entertainment, but its lack of energy or direction seems to spell the death-knell for its oldies franchise.

**(*)(*)(*)Eddie Harrison, The List, 01/08/2013

Like the first one, it's played for laughs in-between bouts of mayhem; most of the gags are off-target, though Mirren's Nancy Mitfordesque assassin gets a pretty good kill ratio.

**(*)(*)(*)Andrew Pulver, The Guardian, 01/08/2013

Despite a script peppered with bullet holes, the cast seem to be having pulpy fun, and if you can get past Red’s exuberant attitude to violent death, so might you.

I'm all for actors still cutting it in middle age, but the material serving them is just arthritic.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Anthony Quinn, The Independent, 01/08/2013

A fun, frothy return for Frank and his creaky commandos.
