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.
Fairly entertaining action movie with older actors
Great cast as for the action presented in it.
I enjoy RED. It's a solid Action/Comedy, though I have amnesia with this film. I've seen it at least 3 times now, and watching it was ALMOST like seeing it for the first time. I didn't remember any plot points, or twists, or anything. Just the premise and that I "remember that I liked it." Honestly, I hope I forget it again and in 2 or 3 years I can watch it for the first time again, again.
When his peaceful life is threatened by a high-tech assassin, a former black-ops agent reassembles his old team in a last ditch effort to survive and uncover his assailants.
Tongue-in-cheek spy thriller with lots of mayhem, but - as the plot implies - feels like a last opportunity for retired action stars.
Despite the stellar cast, I found this movie quite tedious. it was too much Grumpy Old Men. Not enough Expendables. Seemed like they were trying to hard to be funny. And it just didn't work.
On Episode 59, for the Big 2 Boot, the Super Action Bros are reminded that old people can still kick butt in 2010's RED.
Um filme de comédia e acção em simultâneo, um filme ao estilo de Kingsman ou vice-verso!
Excelente cenas de acção e comédia.
Was cool and fun. A typical action comedy. Although the story lacked some new innovative ideas , the cast and scenes made up for it. All in all, it was an enjoyable watch.
Entertaining and fun.
