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 VINE VOICE
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent entertainment: 21 Jun 2011
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Did you vacuum in here?... 14 Mar 2014
Frank is retired, bored and lonely living off his government pension in a nondescript suburb in an equally nondescript house.

The only joy in Frank's life are his calls to the government pension processing centre when he gets to talk to his case worker Sarah.

Sarah is as bored and lonely as Frank and marks her conversations with the unknown Frank and her spy novels as the only things fun in her life.

When something in Frank's past forces Frank back into his old line of work and puts an unwitting Sarah in the middle of the intrigue, Frank and Sarah begin a journey into Franks past and the people he used to work with....

Even though it has some great self-deprecating performances from the eclectic cast, and it has it's tongue firmly in cheek, 'RED' does become boring at certain times, and the action and fighting seem a little too fluid and slick.

After all, his is supposed to be old school stuff.

Willis as always is on top form here, really winking at the camera and riffing on all the tough guy roles he has ever played. No one could have done a better job. But Malkovich steals the show as the disjointed part of the team, and the film has it's best parts when he is in it.

The rest of the cast are good, but it would have been nice to have seen a little more of them.

Even though they are a little too slick, the set pieces are still great and keep the pace of the film running smoothly.

It's a good film, but it does get a little lethargic in places, much like the cast.
