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.
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.
Very action packed and very funny. John Malkovich's Piggy is the star without a doubt XD
R.E.D. stands for "Retired and Extremely Dangerous," and that's exactly what they are. The cast of RED is questionable for an action movie on paper (except for John McClane), but after seeing them all in action, it's better than I ever imagined. I had neutral expectations for this film, and I'm happy to say it's a pleasant surprise. Bruce Willis is as great as he's been in a while. That isn't saying much because he has not had much energy lately, but the rest of the cast picks up his slack tenfold. John Malkovich is amazing. He is genuinely hilarious. I thought it took some kind of special skill to make people laugh every time you spoke. He isn't a…
Beautifully campy. Amazing cast, and Bruce Willis making fun of himself is the greatest.
Good fun with class actors. Could do with a bit more plot but enjoyed it and lots of laughs.
I saw this in the theater. Felt like a run of the mill Hollywood action movie. Entertaining but unmemorable.
Debating on whether to watch the 2nd movie. It was OK, even if I am to believe a bunch of retired CIA agents could taken on younger FBI, SWAT and Secret Service teams... the action just felt slow. The humor was OK i guess but I can't say it really struck a chord- I'll probably still watch the 2nd one, but I want better choreographed action scenes instead of Helen Mirren just standing there with a machine gun or sniper rifle. Needs more John Malkovich.
This is what The Expendables should have been like but fails to be.
Good actors, but really retired
