Frank (Willis) is a former black ops CIA agent living a quiet life alone... until the day a hit squad shows up to kill him. When his identity compromised, Frank reassembles his old team - Joe (Freeman), Marvin(Malkovich) and Victoria (Mirren) and sets out to prove that they still have a few tricks up their sleeves. Stand back and watch the bullets fly in this explosive action comedy.
What a great movie I can not believe Willis , Malkovich, Freeman, Mirren as the so called old spies got retired. Mayhem from start to finish , willis still has his trademark one liners and Malkovich is as nutty as a fruit cake ---''daily injections of lsd '' is how willis explains the crazy malkovich . hellen mirren is HOT even as an old girl and when she says '' i shot him in the chest three times" when describeing her one true love i nearly chocked.Freeman who plays an eighty year old ''retired extremely dangerous ''spy in a retirement home with cancer was the only casualty with the good guys . I found the appearance of richard dreyfus and our own julian mcmarn a pleasant surprise as bad guys. quirky , funny and a keeper for your movie collection.
Red manages to balance the line between action thriller, and light comedy, and does it quite well.
Frank Moses(Bruce Willis) a former C.I.A. agent is now retired, and living a simply, and at times boring life. His only joy of the day when he calls Sarah(Mary Louise Parker) a customer service agent, who he likes, Frank pretends not to get a monthly check, just an excuse to talk to her. But Franks simply life is interrupted, when he learns that somebody has put hit on his life, he goes on the run, after escaping an attempt on his life. He takes Sarah along too, much to her dismay. And gets his old team back together(Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich) in hopes to uncover who is behind the hits, but will they before it's too late?
I really don't agree with the critics on this one. Red was entertaining. It's funny without trying to get overly silly. Action scenes where good. Bruce Willis, Mary Louise Parker, Helen Mirren, Karl Urban, Richard Dreyfuss, Brian Cox, and Morgan Freeman. But it's John Malkovich who steals the show, with his funny one liners. And also a great co starring role by veteran actor Ernest Borgnine.
