RED is an audacious, ludicrous American action film come comedy. Throw together some top actors to deliver a limited, constrained idea and this is what RED is, lots of shooting, a daft plot and minimal dialogue. Yes, I suppose it is entertaining and amusing, comic-like (based on the RED comic series) and it will either draw you in or blow you away (and not in a good way).
A mildly foolish and titillating outing for a team of retired CIA veterans being hunted. They have a RED status, hence Retired Extremely Dangerous.
Overall a fun, light-hearted blockbuster action outing that ticks many boxes, with a top cast lifting up a weak script and predictable plot. Glossy Hollywood Benumbing.
Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich and Morgan Freeman are the big head-liners.
