Red was exactly as silly as I was hoping it would be. I'm not a fan of action movies, with the impossibly exaggerated stunts and effects that have become such a cliche, but the delightful difference about Red is that its cast of legendary actors know exactly how silly the action and cliches are, and they embrace it and have fun with it, and bring the viewer along with them for the fun. Helen Mirren blazing away with a submachinegun is worth the price of admission all by itself, especially since there is no price of admission if you get the DVD from the library. And if you enjoy the movie, this is a rare instance of its sequel (Red 2) being as much fun as the first.

I only borrowed this to see John Malkovich and Helen Mirren. It's worth it just for that, but the rest of the movie is just your standard awful Bruce Willis shoot 'em up cartoony nonsense. And, of course, 65 year old Bruce Willis has a 22 year old girlfriend who absolutely adores him.

Not great, but pretty entertaining espionage action movie that doesn't take itself too seriously. The top notch cast, which has a lot of actors not normally associated with action (except for Bruce Willis), makes it work: Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman, Brian Cox, Karl Urban, Mary-Louise Parker, and a slightly crazed John Malkovich. Followed by a sequel. You may also like "Kingsman" and "The Man from UNCLE."

Great movie!
Finally a movie where "cool people" are over 20 and not surgically enhanced; as well as they can actually act, plus great plot. It was a pleasure to watch.

Powerful star cast... they come together very well to give you a mashed up entertainer of a movie. Dont watch it when you are in the mood for a serious, dramatic storyline though...
