“..the movie does not pull back on the action front - in fact, the run and gun scenes are endless..”
by Betsy Sharkey [Los Angeles Times]
2.5 of 4

“..Red 2 is one of those sequels that's easier to follow if you've seen the original but more entertaining if you haven't..”
by Scott Bowles [USA Today]
“..Red 2 gives the impression of being oodles more fun, while really just being more self-conscious..”
by Stephanie Zacharek [Village Voice]

“..it isn't good, it doesn't pretend to be good, it isn't trying to be good..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
2 of 5

“..cars careen, lazily written infiltration plans are executed, and the violence is plentiful and toothless..”
by Nicolas Rapold [New York Times]
“..but the film's premise is certainly well past its "use by" date, resulting in another passably palatable sequel..”

2 STATES :

“..2 States' romantic angle is a little difficult to connect given the way it is moved along in such a hurry in order to incorporate everything, but the family side of the bargain is truly touching..”
by Paloma Sharma [rediff.com]

INTRAMURAL :

“..the film has got a stacked cast of comedic talent, it unknowingly and amusingly nods to and borrows from more traditional sports films, isn't afraid to get damn weird in service to a good joke..”
by Kate Erbland [Film School Rejects]

A DAY LATE AND A DOLLAR SHORT :

“..happily, fine acting by Anika Noni Rose, Kimberly Elise, Tichina Arnold and Mekhi Phifer, along with Goldberg and Rhames, makes it a cautionary tale worth watching..”
by David Hinckley [NY Daily News]

BEARS :

“..another typically engaging, vividly shot entry in the successful Disney wildlife series..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [Hollywood Reporter]

IN MY DREAMS :

“..one of the more satisfying movies the storied franchise has delivered in some time..”
by Brian Lowry [Variety]

A HAUNTED HOUSE 2 :

“..the script is lazy, recycling countless genre cliches rather than inventing novel twists..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]

MAKE YOUR MOVE :

“.."Make Your Move" is an underwritten mess..”
by Inkoo Kang [LA Times]

KID CANNABIS :

“..this wild story sells itself, no narration needed..”

A PROMISE :

“..awkward, passionless drama conveys neither the sensuality nor the drawn-out sense of longing required..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

“..this second film is the keeper: the kind of keenly observed cultural clash that still finds room for dancing, a sultry fish-deboning (you just have to see it) and awakening..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]
