Director: Robert Schwentke
Cast: Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich, Helen Mirren, Karl Urban, Mary-Louise Parker
Based on the D.C. Comics graphic novels by Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner, RED is a completely entertaining action-comedy starring Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich and Helen Mirren.
Frank (Bruce Willis), Joe (Morgan Freeman), Marvin (John Malkovich) and Victoria (Helen Mirren) are former black-ops CIA agents all living a quiet lives in retirement. As Frank finally decides to take his phone-relationship with Sarah (Mary-Louise Parker) further, a mysterious hi-tech squad shows up to kill him. He quickly takes care of them and heads to Kansas to rescue Sarah.
It turns out, the secrets the former agents know have made them targets from the CIA who send their top hit-man, Karl Urban to kill them all.
At first look, this is just a routine action-comedy where the older, experienced characters come out of retirement to school everyone… and you’d be right. But with this fantastic cast, you get high-caliber acting you don’t normally see in a film like this. And that’s what makes RED so fun to watch.
How many times do you get to see Morgan Freeman in an action-comedy… and kicking serious butt? That alone is worth watching. Add in John Malkovich, Helen Mirren and Willis? This is a can’t miss movie!
