Complimented that she’s such a “bad a**” in “Red 2,” Helen broke into an impish smile and quipped, “I am, aren’t I?” Reprising her role as Victoria, a fur coat-clad British assassin, Helen, arms stretched, coolly shoots at targets on either side of a road with a gun on each hand, while aboard a speeding, spinning blue convertible driven by another hit man (Byung-hun Lee).
