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.
Sporadically funny and continuously uninspired, yet fun enough to keep you entertained from start to finish, Robert Schwentke's RED is a sadly disappointing action/comedy film that doesn't leave a great lasting impression. I've always been a sucker for crime comedies, they're usually fun & bloody and when they are well written, they easily win my heart—plus, a little bit of action never really hurt anyone. However, RED didn't really achieve what I'm looking for in a crime comedy, as it features mostly forgettable characters, disappointing dialogue and a story that doesn't deliver what it could nor even what it promises.
Bruce Willis stars as Frank Moses, a veteran, yet retired secret agent who sees his current peaceful life being suddenly interrupted…
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.
When RED appeared on the schedules back in 2010 most people must have thought it was another Bruce Willis vehicle that would flop at the box office amid a definite career decline. It was however a very entertaining action/comedy that reignited Willis's career and also gave John Malkovich the chance to show what a versatile comedic actor he was. Stealing the limelight from Willis, Freeman, Dreyfuss, and a terrific Helen Mirren, Malkovich got all the best lines and most of the laughs here. Mary-Louise Parker also showed her value as a supporting player for an old-fashioned caper film full of action and wisecracks from the old stagers who all seem to be having the time of their lives. Karl Urban…
Not quite as big on action films as I used to be, but there were some cool action scenes, decent dialogue, and fun performances from the likes of Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, Mary-Louise Parker, Morgan Freeman, Karl Urban, and Richard Dreyfuss among others.
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.
Old people beating up people. And Bruce Willis is the main old person.
A comedy/action movie - it's not funny and the action is too predictable and ridiculous
Red is moderate film, with supreme cast like Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich, Richard Dreyfus, Brian Cox and so on. It is a average film with good action movie, even though the plot of film not that satisfying.
Perfectly acceptable. Malkovich and Mirren are great. Willis shows more activity in this movie than he has in the last 3 years. Fun film.
So much fun. The story ain't nothing special, with some odd pacing decisions, and while there's a few clever actions bits, they aren't exactly sustained through. But this film is ALL about the ensemble casting. Bruce plays it refreshingly gentler than usual, balancing nicely with the kookiness of M-L P. Freeman and Dreyfuss are typically solid, but the highlight of the film is definitely Malcovich, he steals every scene he's in. And of course Mirren - is there a sexier or classier woman over 50 in film these days? Actually, scratch that "over 50". Question still stands.
Action hokum with "ageing former experts come out of retirement" slant.
A cast having a lot of fun making a movie that is good, solid actiony fun. One for when you don't need to think all that much.
La había comenzado a ver como 10 veces y NUNCA la había terminado, la típica película de éste género pero lo suficientemente buena con el plus de Bruce Willis
