RED2 Does Not Disappoint
Went to see RED2 tonight with my husband and my daughter, and the theatre was so full on an early Tuesday evening that we had to break up into single seats.
Some movie sequels are disappointing, but not this one. The plot leap-frogs from one country to another, the characters are bizarre but still grappling with relationship issues that we all face - be it with old friends or new lovers - there's lots of comedy, and some jaw-dropping action moments. I gasped out loud during one action sequence when a car being pursued at top speed by some bad guys drops back alongside a truck and then drives underneath it to come up behind them. Whoo hoo! Adrenaline-pumping fun. Never saw so many credits at the end of a movie for stunt people before.
I highly recommend that you go see this one for some hot summer movie thrills.
Starring Bruce Willis, Mary Louise Parker, John Malkovich, Helen Mirren, Anthony Hopkins, Catherine Zetta-Jones, Byun-hun Lee, and David Thewlis.
And one other fascinating fact. Cineplex is showing a commercial for "Urban Planet" this summer that features two young models. The young man in the ad is none other than my nephew, Wynston Shannon! It's not every day that you can go to the movies and see a relative up on the big screen. Here's the link to the commercial on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i3Lyx2EITtU.
