We Got This Covered

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.

Unfortunately, while Red's stars may have gotten better with age, its many clichés have not.

RED offers cheap thrills and a few nice gags. It could have been more than that, but the appetite for this stuff is insatiable.

The film's two romances are implausible, the dialogue is drawn out with geriatric pauses and the constant funk soundtrack does little to make sense of a plot more disjointed than Brian Cox's knees.

San Diego Union-Tribune

Instead of remaining true to the much darker graphic novel, "Red" goes for the funny bone, using what amounts to wink-and-a-nudge stunt casting that never gets past its own cleverness.

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

Director Robert Schwentke sensibly gives his cast free rein but abandons any pretence of credibility as the retirees dodge numerous bullets and rockets. The venerable cast deserved a more intelligent vehicle for their talents.

Schwentke keeps things light: light on big laughs, light on unique action set pieces and light on any sense that these game but retired spies are too old for this crap.

RED is neither a good movie nor a bad one. It features actors we like doing things we wish were more interesting.

No one gets hurt, okay? See? He's just faking his death. Now let's get you some cocoa and a DVD of Miss Congeniality 2.

Red may look tantalising on paper, but the end product is nothing to smile about.

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.

The winking, self-reflexive tone mutes any possible emotional investment.

I dunno how a film that climaxes with Helen Mirren wielding a machine gun could be this disappointing. But somehow, R.E.D. pulls it off.

Red starts to devolve into nonsense well before it takes advantage of the many things it has going for it.

A lengthy procession of geriatric-assassin jokes [that] offers a chilling portent of what lies in store should soon-to-be-ex-Governor Schwarzenegger ever return to the big screen.

Red instead exhibits all the get-up-and-go of a grandpa on the verge of an afternoon nap.

While the action is good, the movie isn't as cool as it thinks. If you replace Bruce Willis with Gene Hackman, then you have a hit on your hands about these 'old' agents.

RED really had the chops to go the distance. Somewhere along the line, it wandered off the path.
