The cast all turn in excellent performances and as a light, enjoyable caper RED succeeds, but ultimately it's lazy, derivative and immature.

The low-key character comedy gets buried under all the pyrotechnics.

It delivers a few thrills here and there but ultimately a bland story and forgettable characters turn Red into a mediocre action film at best.

A playful action blockbuster with a top-shelf cast and a refreshingly unconventional concept.

Oh, that "RED" was the giddy romp it might have been, it promises to be or it thinks it is.

Put your brain on hold for a few hours and you'll enjoy this light-hearted action comedy.

The best reason to get out there and see it is to see these actors take on this kind of over-the-top material. The fun they appear to be having on screen ends up being quite contagious.

The cast's efforts go about halfway to compensating for Red's lack of inspiration elsewhere.

All the stars seem to be having great fun playing goodies and baddies and running around shooting things. But they could do the same thing paintballing, sparing us from having to watch them and avoiding having to spend 60 million dollars in the process.

A fun little spy thriller that twists the old adage that you can't teach an old dog new tricks and suggests that perhaps they can teach you something new instead.

Si el entretenimiento funciona, además, se debe en gran parte a un atractivo elenco que se divierte como loco jugando a los espías y a los héroes de acción.

It could use more blammo. And more witty. And more everything else. But it requires nothing from you and, in turn, gives back a reasonable amount of action-tainment, so you still come out ahead in the bargain.

This is a flawed but highly enjoyable actioner, bouyed massively by its big-hitting stars and a cheekily dark sense of humour.

If the prospect of seeing Dame Helen letting rip with a ginormous machine gun while dressed to the nines tickles your fancy, give the film a go.

A visually explosive film that leaves little time to catch your breath.

Red is a goofball lament. It's saying that in the good old days, or at least in the good old movie days, our killers were good-time guys.

Call it the film equivalent of the Traveling Wilbury's...a sly caper film that boasts an Oscar laden, all-star veteran cast yet is anything but old and tired.

The novel AARP-action vibe is loose and pleasant, even if the sensitive viewer can't help wishing gunplay and murder weren't so easy to accept as escapist entertainment.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

...filled with the kind of sprightly paced, lighthearted violence that's supposed to evoke chuckles but mostly seems under-heated and over-loud.
