More antiquated, globetrotting nonsense fuels this OAP espionage caper, though it is slightly better than the original. This time, Frank (Bruce Willis) calls on his ageing secret agent buddies (including John Malkovich) to track down a nuclear device invented by a Cold War era weapons genius (Anthony Hopkins) whose mental instability poses a threat to world peace. Frank is also struggling to inject the fire back into his relationship with onetime hostage, Sarah (Mary-Louise Parker reprising her role). As before, the winning rapport between the stars is the film's best asset. Apart from that,
director Dean Parisot takes one joke - the elderly in action mode - and mines it to death. Admittedly, the sight of Helen Mirren in a slow-motion shoot-out still hits the spot, as does her dotty impersonation of the Queen to gain access to an asylum. Catherine Zeta-Jones's
adds little to the loosely plotted scheme of things, but new addition Byung-hun Lee (
GI Joe: Retaliation
) makes a big impression as a contract killer on Willis's trail with a choreographed whirlwind of fight moves and flying bullets.
Former CIA agent Frank Moses reunites his squad of retired operatives for a vital mission. A devastatingly powerful new weapon has been stolen, and it falls to Frank's team to retrieve it - which means facing lethal assassins, terrorists and corrupt government officials out to steal the device. Action thriller sequel, starring Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren and John Malkovich.
