Red 2

They are back! No , not Ghost Busters, they are on their way, but the aging troup of artisits in another, it has to be said, watchable spy thriller spoof. Crammed with nonchalant one-liners featuring a distinquished cast you would expect to see on Broadway. Based on the DC comic-book series, the likeable bunch of oldies have reformed and have to track a rogue nuclear bomb that is set to go off in the middle of Moscow. In the process they need to clear their names in a Cold War scandal but what else would you expect. Pure nonsense escapism but rather well acted and with never a dull moment.
