The fact that 'Red' is meant to be a bit silly makes it a lot of fun. Take it's origin - graphic novel. And its topic, about a bunch of retired agents getting thrown back into action when they're tagged for termination, is the kind of daft 'high concept' they used to do in the '90s.
Luckily it's well made. When it's played for laughs, the tone is bang on perfect. Helen Mirren's scenes as the charming ex assassin are fantastic, and come with great comedy timing, especially the scene where she racks back the bolt on an assault rifle while informing the girly 'Sarah' that she thought it would be nice for them to spend "a little girl time together".
Bruce Willis is perfect as retired CIA agent Frank - still very slick at the action stuff to the point of looking convincing as he trades slugs with Karl Urban, and yet somehow able to playfully flirt with Mary Louise Parker's much younger 'Sarah' without it feeling particularly creepy.
Parker is great fun, throwing herself into the role of the semi-kidnapped call centre employee with vim and enthusiasm, while Freeman and Malkovitch are great throughout. Karl Urban manages to make his nominal bad guy a far more rounded character than expected as well.
The direction is fast and very good, and the dialogue is often funny, while some of the scenes manage to successfully mix comedy and action in equal measures, which is often much harder than it sounds.
As a story this is very enjoyable with some interesting locations and excellent ideas. The effects are good as well, and pack some great explosions.
It even has a comedy pig (you'll see what I mean). A lot of fun.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still dangerous, still got it 28 Feb 2011
By Mr. R. W. Graham TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Red is a very silly but very enjoyable action comedy. A great cast, Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich, Mary Louise Parker, Brian Cox, Richard Dreyfuss, Karl Urban and Ernest Borgnine all giving excellent performances, with Bruce Willis and John Malkovich being the standouts. Hard to picture Bruce Willis retired but he plays it well, and yes i suppose he is getting near retirement age now. Don't take any of this film seriously and you should enjoy it as it is a lot of fun to watch and there are good action scenes too.

Excellent entertainment: Excellent action, Excellent filming & supporting impressive soundtrack engaging flowing story, lovable characters, great humour; both obvious and subtle. I enjoyed this film so much that I've watched it 3 times over the last 5 days-it's a quality Film.

I was initially dubious about this film so thanks to "Benminx" Amazon review I bought into this move and "Benminx" comment is spot on.

RED stands for retired and extremely dangerous. Bruce Willis is a retired CIA "analyst" who is bored and trying to chat-up the woman who deals with his pension cheques when suddenly someone is trying to kill him. Then the relentless action begins and never stops. It is a lot like Knight and Day, only with a cast that can pull it off.

Willis is great as the hunted "granddad" with attitude and enough weaponry to restart the cold war. Morgan Freeman plays a great little cameo as one of his old CIA friends, Helen Mirren is also good along with Brian Cox, but the stand out performance is John Malkovitch's character. He is just brilliant, in some of the silliest but best fun moments of the film. He plays the madman perfectly. The scene at the airport when they are cornered by the CIA hit team is brilliant - especially his shoot out with a rocket propelled grenade.

I can't understand why this didn't make a bigger impact at the cinema. It is well worth watching and my children loved it too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old People Have More Fun 5 Jun 2012
By Dolphin TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This is a brilliantly funny action movie with very wide appeal. I couldn't resist adding my superlatives to the long list of positive reviews, especially since I have watched this DVD recently for the third time. Even the extra features are interesting!

All the main players are in top form and their obvious chemistry adds so much to the generally upbeat mood. They are having a ball and not taking themselves too seriously, while poking fun at a series of events which are both topical and credible. We learn from the extras that an ex-CIA agent oversaw the production and it shows!

The story begins with a look at the life of early retiree Frank Moses (Bruce Willis at his sardonic best), and it is immediately clear that this freakishly neat, mild-mannered man has secret depths. He calls to complain about his pension payment being late, but this is a blatant excuse to chat up his caseworker (competently portrayed by Mary-Louise Parker). It becomes clear that, despite their age difference, they have both been enjoying these conversations for some time and soon, with some misgivings, she agrees to meet Frank in real life.

From here on, the action takes off as Frank's past catches up with him and, facing mortal danger, he is forced to re-assemble a team of his former associates.

John Malkovich gives an unforgettable performance as a mentally-damaged but still sharp former CIA operative ("I'm getting the PIG"); Helen Mirren is equally fantastic as the gun-toting ex-spy who is unable to make a complete transition to her new life as the suave hostess of a luxury guest house ("I take the odd contract on the side. I just can't stop.").
