RED 2 STORY
THE BEST NEVER REST
In the highly anticipated RED 2, the high-octane action comedy sequel to the worldwide sleeper hit, retired black-ops CIA agent Frank Moses reunites his unlikely team of elite operatives for a global quest to track down a missing portable nuclear device. To succeed, they’ll need to survive an army of relentless assassins, ruthless terrorists and power crazed government officials, all eager to get their hands on the next generation weapon. The mission takes Frank and his motley crew to Paris, London and Moscow. Outgunned and outmanned, they have only their cunning wits, their old-school skills, and each other to rely on as they try to save the world—and stay alive in the process. Bruce Willis' Frank Moses is on Interpol's most-wanted list, making a run for it through Europe, once again with girlfriend Sarah (Mary Louise Parker) in tow and crazy Marvin (John Malkovich) roped in to help. Catherine Zeta Jones is one of Frank's dangerous ex-girlfriends, with Anthony Hopkins also in the enemy camp. It seems even Victoria (Helen Mirren) is against Frank this time, but all may not be as it seems.
