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.

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.

Based on a relatively obscure miniseries by DC Comics, RED tells the story of a group of retired CIA agents considered to be code RED, which means Retired: Extremely Dangerous. Having moved on from their exciting lives, the former spies have settled into more mundane existences until a conspiracy from their past threatens to drag them back into the world of espionage and danger.

Bruce Willis stars as the lead character, Frank Moses, and spends most of the film perfecting that half-smile stare that he seems to use for his more recent action movies. It evokes a sense of 'too cool for school' and almost belies a sense of boredom of having to star in yet another action hero role. He doesn't seem to stretch himself too much in the role and aside from a few witty one-liners, he actually seems very distant from the film - almost as if nothing happening on-screen fazes him.

His co-stars, Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman and John Malkovich seem to be more invested in the film, although with the exception of John Malkovich, none of them seem overly exerting themselves in playing their characters. Malkovich's turn as the paranoid, eccentric former-spy, Marvin, was a highlight of the film and brought an added sense of fun to the surprisingly light-hearted thriller.

I also enjoyed Karl Urban's role as the main antagonist and look forward to seeing him appear in more films in the future. The sequence with him and Bruce Willis having an extended fight scene was effectively brutal and showcased both actors very well, although i'd imagine most of the violent scenes were done by stunt-men rather than the actors themselves.

There is a line between irony and parody and also a line between comedy and patethic comedy.
Here the line is not crossed, since the plot is quite convincing and you enjoy the big cast who make fun of themselves but still do not make you feel like they are just having more fun than you.
Director and actors have been good at finding the right balance between parody and comedy.

This film is a superb frolic and 'take-off' of spy movies. It's clearly not meant to be taken seriously, especially John Malkovitch, who is trigger-happy and just plain mad! My favourite character was Helen Mirren, who was just superb.

This was been on my buy when cheap enough list (otherwise known as Amazon wish list) for some time before I finally got round to buying and watching it and wondering why the hell I waited so long because it's great.

Based on a short graphic novel by Warren Ellis and Cully Hammer, the producers (or whoever) had the sense to keep only the idea and the skeleton of the story, flesh it out and hire some of the best actors of a certain age which also includes Brian Cox and Richard Dreyfuss, use a script peppered with great dialogue and lots of action, and let it loose.

Ex-CIA black ops agent Willis regularly phones an office in Kansas City ostensibly to complain about the non-appearance of his retirement cheque but really to flirt with the thirty-something woman (Mary-Louise Parker) who deals with his case. When, following the latest call, a CIA hit team arrive to take him out but get taken by him. He then drives to Kansas City to rescue/kidnap Parker before they get to her and then get in touch with old black ops buddies to find out what the hell has been going on.

Freeman is in an old people's home dying of cancer, Malkovitch is paranoid and living in a swamp, ex-MI6 hitwoman Mirren is living a gentile life in the American countryside. He also consults old Russian enemy Brian Cox who has a history with Mirren. Meanwhile immaculately dressed, ruthless CIA hitman Karl Urban (a fine actor when given the right role) is given the task of dealing with Willis and his team. Urban has only one flaw which is a tendency to independent thinking. I can't tell you Richard Dreyfuss' role in this or I'd have to kill you.

What you get is an action-packed but witty romp where all the cast are on top form and clearly having fun at the same time.
