    Jul 19, 2013 MPR Arts Reporter Euan Kerr reviews this action-comedy sequel starring Bruce Willis, Mary-Louise Parker, John Malkovich, Helen Mirren, Byung-hun Lee and Anthony Hopkins.

MPR Arts Reporter Euan Kerr joins Jill Riley and Steve Seel to review RED 2, the sequel to 2010's comic-book-inspired hit. The film stars Bruce Willis, Mary-Louise Parker, John Malkovich, Helen Mirren, Byung-hun Lee, Anthony Hopkins, Catherine Zeta-Jones, David Thewlis and Brian Cox. RED 2 is directed by Dean Parisot.

Euan describes RED 2 as a romantic comedy disguised as an explosion film. "It's patently ridiculous," he says, "but really, really worth seeing." Listen to Euan's full review; you'll also hear a cappella theme music provided by Steve and Jill.

RED 2 is rated PG-13 and is in wide release throughout the region.
