I FUCKING LOVE COLOURING
Still armed. Still dangerous. Still got it.
When his peaceful life is threatened by a high-tech assassin, former black-ops agent Frank Moses reassembles his old team in a last ditch effort to survive and uncover his assailants.
The Best Expendable Marigold Hotel.
Schwentke thought that his full-star cast would replace the necessity of character development and the creation of convincingly exciting events. False. Well, there are a couple of exceptions:
- Helen Mirren firing a machine gun bigger than her while wearing a white dress and still looking fine.
- John Malkovich, simply because he is John Malkovich. Everything he does is fucking awesome. In this case, he plays a delusional old man that was subject for 11 years to heavy LSD doses for governmental purposes. I approve enthusiastically.
The film's biggest flaw is that it never determined whether if it wanted to be a comedic action/thriller or a DC adaptation, so it attempted to be both intermittently, ending up being a seriously uneven and uninteresting film. The ending ranks as one of the most ridiculous and unfunny of the decade.
Stupid nonsense. But at least it was intentionally stupid nonsense. Malkovich's turn as a pensionable Howling Mad Murdoch from The A Team type just about makes it worthwhile. Just about.
British television has a great habit of showing movies just before the sequel hits the cinemas. Over the last few weeks and months we had Iron Man, Star Trek and then last night Red. I also saw that Kick-Ass is on over the weekend just in time for Jeff Wadlow's follow-up.
Red was one of the funniest action comedies of the last few years with John Malkovich proving yet again just how awesome he really is. Bruce Willis kicking ass, Mary -Louise Parker sparkling, and Helen Mirren toting machine guns, what more could you want. Ex C.I.A operatives who get drawn into a deadly game of cat and mouse with Karl Urban and a crooked arms dealer, this has a great comedic touch from all involved and with Oscar winners Morgan Freeman,Richard Dreyfuss and Ernest Borgnine adding to the fun this is entertaining as hell. And on the subject of Helen Mirren, I definitely would.(twice)
Failed to hold my attention. I could always find something else to do whilst this was on.
Just finished watching the last 2/3rds of "Red", the kinetic, over-the-top, over-the-hill gang action movie, featuring Bruce Willis, John Malkovic, Helen Mirren and Mary-Louise Parker. It was pretty fun although quite ridiculous. It sure seems like they were having a blast making the movie. A couple cool movie tricks (like when Malkovic shot the RPG coming at him, causing a back blast that took out the shooter) raised this up a little. Enjoyable waste of time, I guess.
It's like a Die Hard film for old people.
Bruce, Johnny, Morgan, and That Women from Weeds
Much funnier than I thought it was going to be.
An excellent cast, who have had a ball it seems, making this film.

"Old man my ass!"
Everything The Expendables lacks, RED has, well except an acceptable amount of time with Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Its got hilarious comebacks.
Fantastic choreography in fight scenes.
And Morgan Freeman.
A ludicrous actioner that revels in the mad violence. This is what
The Expendables movies think they are.
Also wenn meine Freundin an einem Actionfilm Spaß hat, dann muss er gut sein. Wirklich der perfekte Film für Paare und den entspannten Abend mit Bier und Kumpels.
With a cast like that, I expected nothing less than an extraordinarily cool and extremely entertaining action comedy. But it wasn't neither cool nor entertaining. It was boring, pointless, stupid, and ultimately pathetic. I'm completely disappointed. There were a couple of moments that made me chuckle, but in general RED was pretty lame.
