Everything about this movie is brilliant. You've got an all-star ensemble cast, a clever and intriguing story and a healthy mix of action and comedy. Bruce Willis and John Malkovich are perfectly cast in their respective roles, and Karl Urban is understated but fantastic as the CIA agent trying to do his job even though he's being manipulated. Whilst Helen Mirren steals every single scene she's in with her beauty combined with badassness.
Awesome cast, lots of action, witty dialogue. All in all a thoroughly entertaining movie.
Red is a really good movie with lots of action, lots of stunts, lots of shooting and lots of fun. The acting is superb, with Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich, Helen Mirren and Richard Dreyfuss lighting up the screen with some very funny lines. Ok, like most movies of this genre, it had a storline that was barely believable, but then it never led you to believe that it was totally serious. Recommended.
A great action movie with some funny moments thrown in.
Awesome action comedy. Kept me interested the whole way through.
great bruce willis movie - lots of action still has the touch worth a look
Great movie, great actors , get it out its worth the watch.
Who wouldn't want to watch this movie with great actors such as Bruce, Morgan and Helen. Just a great silly fun action movie and definitely would watch again even with all the gun fire scenes!!. Enjoyable.
Just a fun, fun movie. Much like There's Something About Mary, or The Princess Bride. Over the top, but allows one to escape. The action was great, too.
Enjoyed it has good effects and storyline
This is a fun movie with a lot of "what the" moments. John Malkovich has the most of these moments and made me laugh out loud, a lot. The whole cast were great to watch working together. You have to suspend belief a few times with how smoothly these people operate. Bruce Willis stepping out of a moving, spinning car and firing at the same time is one nicely filmed action sequence. It is totally unbelievable, yet well done.
Loved this movie, the oldies proved they still got it, love em all.
I thought this movie was great. I always enjpy a good comedy action movie. It was great to see a woman behind the trigger, Helen did a wonderful job. A regular flow of laughter plus exciting action scenes. Bruce Willis always delivers a gret performance.
probably people out there who will like this but i'm not one of them
turned it off after suffering through 20 mins not even john [the great] malkovich
could save this stinker
Not what I thought it was from the shorts
The old CIA team are brought together through someone trying to kill off each member because they still had knowledge about what happening years before. What a mistake to take this lot on the Bloke must have been brain dead, should have left them alone and stayed alive.
Very enjoyable, one of those movies you can watch over and over.
This film is almost too much fun.
Great entertaining movie, for some funny light action packed film rent it!
Fun movie, and not to be taken seriously! (Love that Bruce Willis is playing a retired "tough guy", and also Julian McMahon, son of one of our previous PM's, playing a US Presidential candidate.) 4 stars for the sheer escapism of it all.
Fabulous movie. The acting was splendid and it was a totally enjoyable experience.
Yep, Bruce Willis plays another FBI role. You know what - it was great! different, from the wise-cracking cop he normally plays, this brought a new storyline to the table and I would definately recommend it! The fantastic cast makes for a good movie filled with something for everyone.
A great family movie - no violence, minimal swearing and a good plot. The mining scenes are so good, makes you wonder what today's miners have to whinge about!! We laughed and cried - just a good movie, few and far between these days,
I love movies with high profile stars clearly having a lot of fun. It's an entertaining story that's not meant to be taken as a realistic representation of a secret agent's life. It's an enjoyable romp with good scripting and some wonderful moments.
This is an oldie but a goodie. It is a bit slow at the start but once the action starts you are sitting on the edge of your seat. Very good movie.
we found this movie entertaining
A movie that you want to buy for your library. Great cast and action packed.
Far fetched but very entertaining. Enjoyed the antics of the over 50's club that I even watched it a second time!!! Good entertainment!!
Wow acation, fun, shoot em up stuff, well cast. Fun film
Terrifc. How this genre should be done. Great cast.
Great cast and great action. And best of all, it has Helen Mirren !
It was a great movie that both my partner and I enjoyed. Bruce Willis was his usual action packed self and the support of a stella cast made this a wonderful watch, funny in just the right places and very memorable. A must see for any action fan!
Awesome film great stars and very funny
Great movie, what you'd expect from a cast like this, funny, action, good!
Loved this movie, action and humor and some big names
Fantastic, in every way. How can you put 4 great old school actors together and not get a great film. Great story line, great acting, great action and full of laughs.
Would recommend to all.
as a retiree, I have to say I loved this movie. The casting of WIllis and Parker, his love interest was superb. Even better was Malkavich as a crazed retiree living in the deep south of the US. Helen Mirren as a retired assasin was also good.
This movie is played for laughs but is full of action too. I would highly recommend it.
RED was fun. A little ridiculous but good to just settle down and enjoy good actors being a little over the top.
Loved it from start to finish. Great actors, good story
one of the best drama/great comedy films we have seen in years..not for straight drama/comedy fans...or maybe so !!!!!!!
Given the line-up I had great expectations. Sadly, one of the worst movies I've seen this year.
Lots of fun with a great cast!
Action with lots of laughs.This movie did not take itself too seriously and had a great cast of actors. Helen Mirran in an evening gown with boots and a sniper rifle made me like it all the more!
Great escapist romp. Take nothing about this film seriously and you will love it. Fantastic ensemble cast that you can see are having lots of fun. Some slick directing, classy action sequences and lots of laughs make up for a fairly thin plot. Really surprised by how much I enjoyed this film!
Great movie! Comedy, action, suspense...a good flick for guys and girls to enjoy together.
Hilarious, good entertainment if you don't take it too seriously, with a twisted off beat love yarn.
Thoroughly enjoyed this movie. So unbelievable it was fun. Loved Mary-Louise Parker.
Action - Bruce Willis - Action - Humour (very funny) - over the top action... yeah what more? Watch it!
A woman working at social security dreams of becoming the girl in a 'mills & Boons style' book, where the male hero is a CIA agent.... and it happens !
(Spoilers) Silly but fun. I do want to know exactly how old the leading man has to be to stop getting the girl. 80? If she were 75 I'd be quite happy, but 25? Same comment for wild target which is very much the same.
Tried hard with this but just plain silly gave up without watching more than first half hour. Perhaps just gettting too old!
We saw this at the movies and loved it the second time too. Great to see all the older actors, Bruce, Helen, Morgan, John etc. We really recommend this to everyone.
Really enjoyed this movie, was really funny!
Tommy-rot... from beginning to end... and where was the continuity? The 'star' is for the presence and complete waste of talent of Helen Mirren and Brian Cox
Hilarious!!! It was so over the top, it was great!
An original idea on the usual spy/action movies. I have always been a fan of Bruce Willis ever since I was a kid, so it is good to see him still being able to provide some action entertainment. A bit of humour mixed into the film too which is great.
I was quite surprised at how much I enjoyed this movie! A very watchable flick, and a lot of fun.
Bruce Willis was ultra smooth in this one. I love John Malkovich. Helen Mirren was superb and Morgan Freeman too. Not bad for a bit of escapism. The 4 stars are for Bruce Willis.
I thought this movie was brilliant, the cast were excellent and the image of Helen Mirren with a sniper rifle and John Malchovic being slightly nuts was a case of genius casting. The story line was easy to follow but exciting. As I am not a fan of Bruce Willis I was originally put off this movie, but even he was good in this film. I found this film highly entertaining and at times funny
Could not even get to the end of this movie - tried three times. Sorry...lame!
Love bruce Willis and I would have to say this is one of his best movies. I found that I didnt even want to blink in case I missed something. Is a must see !
We thought this movie was great. Fantastic comedy and fiction at the same time. Excelent
loved it! great humour and action - john malkovich is awesome
What a blast, from the opening scenes to the last. A roller-coaster ride of twists and turns with the great acting expected of Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren and Bruce Willis. Total Entertainment without any heavy handiness in the action which was virtually non-stop.
Really enjoyable. Great humour!. Bruce Willis at his best. I liked it enough that I've seen it twice now.
Good movie....plenty of action. Real comic book stuff.
An enjoyable film. Not quite waht I expected but a good watch
Awesome! Fun and silly, the great cast bounces off each other rather than fights for screen time! Very chuckalicious!
Such a great cast, and so much fun... a thinking person's action movie! Bruce Willis is such a charmer, and Helen Mirran with a gun- fabulous!!
Watched this one with my partner. We both really enjoyed it. I had not even heard of it till I saw it as a choice on quickflix but glad I chose it. Really great for a laugh!! Morgan Freeman is fantastic in anything.
A bit hard to follow so did not enjoy too much
Great movie, kept me on the edge of my seat. Great humour throughout !!!.........
Who wouldn't love this film with the line up of experienced actors and actresses
it has,its funny it gets you right in
Good fun film that is totally unbelievable. Nice escapism.
Take Expendables (Action movie full of Celebrities)
Add Comedy and a better script and you have RED.
I really enjoyed this movie.
Enjoyed it. Love Helen Mirren and could even tolerate Bruce Willis in this. A good mix of drama and comedy.
Corny and badly written. Great cast but very disappointing from al of them.
Enjoyable film. A couple of laugh out loud moments, Willis was great. Good fun movie, light hearted very entertaining - no deep thinking required.
Just OK, enjoyed it, but just so so
I loved this film, I know of quite a few that did not rate this film highly, but I found it to be what it was supposed to be, humour and a spoof on action, very well done in my estimation - perhaps I maybe one of the few - very enjoyable indeed - thank you!!
What a great movie - It really has it all - Action, Comedy, Romance - Loved it
A really entertaining, well acted, often funny, shoot em up film. Great to see some older generation actors kicking butt!!!! Great fun!
Entertaining and gave us a laugh, worth a watch
We found this movie a real treat. Back to the old Bruce Willis comedy/drama.
We hope that they make more of this genre.
Predictable but good action scenes. The plot is a bit tired with ex-CIA turned loose against there own but entertaining nonetheless. Bruce Willis is always cool.
great film with classic actors and actress's.
One of the best movies I've seen this year, funny, exciting and interesting plot. Not just another silly action movie, the actors compliment each other well, none of the veterans try to steal the scenes. John Malkovich is hilarious and Helen Mirren elegant while holding a machine gun! Wonderful job, high recommended.
i enjoyed this movie a lot more than i thought i would
was well worth watching, slight off the cuff gags , jocks and digs 2 keep you listening as well as a good action movie.
As for the actors what more can you want. will be buying my own copy
One of our favourite comedies as it's such a great spoof, acted brilliantly by a wonderful cast. John Malkovich plays a tremendous role as does Bruce Willis.
A great night in....over and over again!!
this was a good movie well worth watching good comady action keep you in your seats and good for a laugh
So boring and corny...don't bother watching.
Fantastic movie. Great combination of actors, and good balance of action, suspense and comedy. Will be buying this one for the collection.
had a serious laugh, love the collection of actors most favs' will hire it again - hence the 5 stars.
Fairly enjoyable, not as funny as I expected. Lots of improbable action and a few surprises. Glad I saw it for free, though.
A little slow to start but was an enjoyable movie and there was some great action and comedic moments. Worth a watch!
not a strong plot
Great good fun movie - I'm not usually a Bruce Willis fan.....but fantastic cast and if you like action with a clever bit of slightly twisted humour - you will love this!
Really enjoyed this movie, very tongue in cheek. Worth a watch
fun, typical Brucey movie
very funny satirical look at old school CIA-cold war espionage style agents who come out of retirement to save the day. Loved John Malkovich's charactor and thought Bruce and Mary Louise Parker worked well together and Julion McMahon took me by surprise, great role. all in all a great piece for all the actors who all shone well in their roles together.
Brilliant cast ,tight effective plot.who to go total enjoyment. bruce is great, dame helen brilliant as always.Supporting cast A
When his peaceful life is threatened by a high-tech assassin, former black-ops agent Frank Moses reassembles his old team in a last ditch effort to survive and uncover his assailants. Fizzer!
Thoroughly enjoyable. Typical Bruce Willis movie.
Brilliant. I'm going to buy this one.
Great, rollicking tale with actors I love like Malkovitch and Mirren... really good, sit back your in for a great ride, video night. Fast, intelligent, twisted, bit of romance... all good.
I was expecting more from it. It had too many boring bits that nearly put me to sleep and that is not a good thing for an action movie. Saved slightly by a comic element. Overall a disappointment.
Helen Mirren and John Malkovich were quite impressive in this movie. Was ok overall, but nothing that I would watch again.
This is how action films should be done! Tongue firmly in cheek, quality cast, reasonable story and plenty of action! All of the actors in this seem to be having a blast. Really enjoyable.
Maybe I'm missing something here, but I thought this movie was dreadful. With such a good cast, I was expecting a lot more. Mary-Louise Parker's acting was stilted and probably ruined it for the rest of them. I was bored to tears after half an hour and simply couldn't watch any more. For fans of Oceans 11 et al. (which I am not), it might appeal. Very disappointing.
Action movies are not generally my thing , I gave this a go because of the cast. Great fun !!
I agree a must see , loved it .
Sadly, despite a really classy ensemble cast; RED fails dismally because the story is just plain ridiculous with so many holes in it that the threads that hold it together are stretched beyond incredulity. If you want a great espionage movie; stick with the Bourne trilogy. If you want a slick ensemble piece; stick with the Oceans trilogy: You have been warned......
Excellent. Funny and Violent!
A comic book style shoot'em-up spy movie. Was good fun, even if a little overdone. We loved Helen Mirren's character - very tongue in cheek characterisation of a former spy-master.
Great fun. Looks like the whole crew had fun making this and it permeates the movie.
A great mix of 3 things humour,action and renown actors, i give it a 7 outta 10
Excellent movie. A must see movie.
Very fun movie. The stunts that they do are over the top, but fit in with the style of the movie so well. Pity Helen Mirren wasn't in it more, her character could have been more interesting to see for longer, and John Malkovich was fantastic as always. Doesn't take itself too seriously, which some of these types of films can (and so they miss the mark, unlike this one).
Funny, action packed 'tongue-in cheek' movie with a great cast.
Although predictable, this film didn't disappoint. Mary-Louise Parker was fabulous and Bruce Willis was also great. Morgan Freeman plays the same style character he plays in all movies (yawn - though I suppose Bruce Willis could be accused of that too) but Malkovich was a nice surprise. An absolutely all-star cast makes this movie worth watching - even if the plot is a little predictable.
