Product Description

Product Description

Previously Enjoyed & Fully Guaranteed

You can take the agent out of the CIA, but you can't take the CIA out of the agent--or so discovers Frank Moses, to his chagrin. Frank, played by Bruce Willis, simply wants to live his simple life with his government pension. But when a troop of black-ops guys descends on his house one night and blows it to smithereens, Frank realizes he needs to get a few of his old colleagues together and find out what's what. That's the premise of Red, a jolly action flick based on a rather more serious graphic novel. Because Frank's old posse includes kicky roles for Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich, and a tea-pouring, hot-lead-spraying Helen Mirren, the movie boasts a certain appeal just at the "Holy cow, can you believe who's in this thing?" level. Actually, the rest of the cast is pretty sweet as well: Mary-Louise Parker steals much of the film as Frank's unsuspecting civilian date (swept into the action because she might innocently become a CIA target, too), Brian Cox hams it up as Frank's former Soviet adversary (wistfully recalling how he always wanted to assassinate a US president), and Karl Urban (Star Trek) supplies brawn and brains as the current CIA agent in charge of bringing the hammer down on Frank. The breezy tone barely pauses to notice the semi-serious story point at the heart of the plot (a hazily recalled disaster in Guatemala many years earlier), nor the dead bodies that pile up around the edges of the action. Flightplan director Robert Schwentke lets his actors act up, which is not a capital crime given the skills of the cast list, and he shoves the plot along with fitting speed. It's not art, but as a multiplex diversion, Red scatters a decent share of legitimate jolts and rim-shot one-liners. --Robert Horton

Bruce Willis, what more can I say? How about John Malkovitch? I think he steals the show! His understated humor is great! The other actors are great as well, I can't think of a single scene I didn't like. There are enough plot twists and unexpected moments to keep you guessing, I never predicted anything, I was surprised at every turn. The best thing? Nobody dies! (at least no good guys) Get this movie, then get RED2, you'll love them!

By The Movie Guy HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Nov. 30 2015
Format: Blu-ray
Bruce Willis is back doing what he does best: action-comedy. The movie opens with Willis getting up as the clock turns to 6:00 AM with no alarm. This quick opening scene shows us his orderly life. He rips up his retirement checks just so he can talk to a woman in Kansas City on the phone, whom he has not met, but has a fascination. Played by Marie-Louise Parker she also writes bad spy romances which Willis reads. As Willis gets up too early, his sixth sense is working, a group of men attempt to kill him. He heads to KC and kidnaps his would-be gf. As it turns out the CIA is trying to kill him for something that happened in Guatemala in 1981. The bulk of the movie is to figure out why and to stop it before they get killed.

The dialouge has a dry wit to it. For example when Willis takes a bullet:

Parker: "This is bad."
Willis: "People get shot all the time."
Parker: "No they don't. They normally get paper cuts."
Malkovich: "I normally get shot."

The film moves at a good pace and really gets fun when Malkovich shows up. John was a former CIA operative who was given LSD everyday for 11 years. He is quirky and paranoid.

Ernest Borgnine: Plays a CIA records keeper.
Karl Urban: CIA agent hunting Willis.
Morgan Freeman: Former CIA agent, part of Willis' group.
Helen Mirren: Also a former "wet" agent. Retired and complex. She enjoys baking, arranging flowers, and killing.
Richard Dreyfuss shows up near the end as a bad guy arms dealer.

As in most modern action films, impossible things happen. But then that is what makes them fun to watch and we all expect it from a Willis film

5 reasons to love RED:
1. Excellent cast that obviously got along well, from younger studmuffin Karl Heinz Urban (Lord of the Rings), to Bruce Willis and Helen Mirren. No one disappoints.
2. Excellent action scenes, from gunfire battles (including some lovely big guns, grenades, and a missle launcher) to hand-to-hand combat featuring actors doing many of their own stunts.. and they have the real-life scars to prove it.
3. Solid script and great directing and editing.
4. Some Hilarious situations and antics, including John Malkovitch's character (ticked at being called an old man) going up against a blonde with a missle launcher, a "first date" from hell, a novel way to get a CIA squad on their knees (the elevator scene), and many, many others.
5. Believability. Some, if not a lot, of the script is based on facts from now-declassified CIA files, and this version offers a special feature describing some of these facts in greater detail as well as an optional audio commentary by a retired CIA agent. Much of the dialogue seems "real", from
"I can't believe you broke into my home! Wait... did you... VACUUM in here?!"
"A little bit. Ya. It was kinda messy in here, and I was waiting for you for a while." to
"Wow, he's paranoid."
"He thought he was being dosed with drugs. Turns out the CIA was giving him daily doses of LSD for eleven years."
"Oh, in that case he's doing great!"
"Ya, I know."
◇Frank (Bruce Willis), a retired "CIA analyst", has been marked for death, but he doesn't know why. Or, more appropriately, why NOW. He races to find out why, and reunites with some old frenemies to get to the heart of the matter.

By B. Chandler TOP 100 REVIEWER on Aug. 8 2011
Format: Blu-ray
Frank Moses (Bruce Willis) retired form the CIA is just trying to make time over the phone with Sarah Ross (Mary-Louise Parker) when to his chagrin he finds he is the target of unfinished business and anyone he likes may be dispatched along with himself. Now he must find the culprits or cabal that is out to depose of him and a hand full of other CIA retirees known as RED's (Retired and Extremely Dangerous) this will require getting the band back together.

Watch and have fun as the impossible becomes possible and you cannot help saying "Stay in the car". Of course Bruce Willis played in a lot of action shoot-um-up movies but Helen Mirren may soon surpass him. I know the movie is not unique but who cares? It is just fun to want them act it out.

Here is another live action thriller , which is farfetched. It's good fun , but these people are not marksmen/women. Never has so
much lead been in the air without hitting anyone. No one actually gets shot until it is required for part of the plot. At one point
our heros are stopping the protagonists with a tripod mounted 50 caliber machine gun ; the customery black SUVs are
chewed to bits , but no one inside suffers a scratch!! Still it's all in the spirit of good fun and delivers on all counts. I will
acquire RED II in due course. Here's some silly fun for you ; during the aforementioned 50 cal scene the female lead
is seen in profile ; I think they used a bustier double for the scene ; see what you think!
