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.
Continuously fun with over the top and badass action sequences, a very chilling soundtrack, several decent performances and laughable lines, RED never ceases to entertain but many times I felt like I was watching long sequences created only for a gag and the plot is almost nonexistent. Still, Malkovich's character is awesome and since I had a pretty good time, I'll probably watch the sequel soon.
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.
Fun, ridiculous & entertaining with a star-studded cast, we find Bruce Willis portraying his usual badass self and Hellen Mirren with a machine gun. Great? No. Good? No. But definitely fun and forgettable. This one you can judge by its cover.
Pesada ata non poder mais. Brilla pola falta de calidade na interpretación. Ausencia dun guion decente. Nada que ver.
While the premise of this movie may be similar to that of 'The Expendables' here the concept was done right. The film was loads of fun and while the action was really exciting the movie didn’t take itself too seriously. Much of the film was over the top but it worked because of the humorous tone throughout. The story was fast paced and the spy plot was interesting but the real focus of the adventure was the characters. The whole cast were great and watching Morgan Freeman and Helen Mirren kick ass was just as entertaining as it sounds. The movie could have been silly but by mixing some top notch action with genuinely funny comedy it made the film a fun and entertaining watch.
Um filme de acção bem feito e com a mania da piada. Mas sem grande piada, mas bem feitinho. E de acção. Mas isso eu já tinha dito. E alguém devia refazer os dentes ao Bruce Willis até ele se rir como as pessoas. Se ele se ri-se já não era mau.
Casa pollio, Blueray
I'd forgotten how much fun this movie is! John Malkovich pulls it up half a star all on his own and the entire cast pull it up at least a whole star. Without such great actors it would be far less enjoyable.
It never gets old
Totally underrated, Red seems to have gone under everyones radar, but it's a good, original action movie with a great cast.
