Excerpt: A retired CIA operative is targeted for elimination and so he reunites with his former colleagues to strike back at the assassins. RED is a comic strip action film based on a DC Comics series about ex-spies who come out of retirement and teach the new young whipper-snappers how it's done. The tone is very light-hearted despite the amount of fire power on show and it embraces the concept of "geriaction" wholeheartedly.
Summary: Great movie with calvacade of stars. Humor, lots of action, intrigue and even a little romance thrown in. The characters were believable, and seem to portray real-life people. Love the movie. Highly recommended. Very enjoyable, and fast paced.
Excerpt: Revisited this action packed fun ride last night and was reminded how good it was. Humor, over the top action sequences, good story and a terrific cast. It doesn't get much better than that. Don't let anyone tell you different, the Special Edition is the one to get. There's a slipcover for the collector. There's special features for those wanting to know more. But most importantly, there's a lossless 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio sound track.
Excerpt: RED is not bad, for a movie about bunch of old retired agents who become targets by the same government they once killed for. R.E.D. stands for "Retired and Extremely Dangerous," and that's exactly what they are. The cast of RED is questionable for an action movie on paper (except for John McClane), but after seeing them all in action, it's better than I ever imagined. I had neutral expectations for this film, and I'm happy to say it's a pleasant surprise.
Bruce Willis-not retired but extremely dangerous( and awesome)

Excerpt: This is one of those that didn’t really interest me at all when it came out in theaters. Despite the star-studded cast and premise of “old” actors kicking some ass wasn’t worth the price of a ticket. But my parents dragged me with them to see it. As I watch the movie, the first 10 mins, I wasn’t impressed. The pacing felt draggy and the off-beat sense of humor felt too quirky for me. I was kind of bored and totally expected this. All of a sudden, BANG!
Excerpt: The former John McClane plays Frank Moses, a former CIA operative, who is so bored in retirement that he spends his days sitting around the house, reading trashy romance novels and intentionally rips up his checks just so he can have a reason to telephone pension clerk Sarah Ross (Mary-Louise Parker).
