Angry's Honest Movie Reviews 4: RED


Saw this movie recently mainly because it had Bruce Willis in it and the promo seemed to cover most demands I have(guns, action and humor),the movie is based on a 3 issue comic book by Warren Ellis in 2003/4.
Willis(still got it and a movie made for him) is a retired CIA operative who is been pursued by assassins led by Karl Urban(bad guy/very good actor) after contact with a girl at his pension provider,they go on the run and get the retired gang back together, Freeman(dependable as always), Malovich(playing the lunatic who believes they are out to get him and he is right), Mirren(great 50.cal scene) and some outside assistance from Brian Cox(the russian) the action is plentiful, plenty of laughs and one liners,great performances from everybody and a good ending make this a 3 STAR bordering on a 4 STAR, recommended.

  2. Great movie. I agree it was perfect for Bruce Willis. Malkovitch was also terrific. Actually everyone in it was great. Loved the review.
