Funny and unforgettable.

It is by no means the most memorable action film ever made but it is fun and hilarious enough to take the time to enjoy the film and it's performances from its stellar cast.

Nice. Great movie, awesome cast, superb story/plot, nice actions scenes, etc.

Killer cast, and great action sequences, but the plot is lacking, and it's not as funny as you'd expect it to be. A bit of a disappointment but a good movie nonetheless.

Riddled with clichés and plot holes, RED is an insult to its source material, and an underwhelming film. While it may have competent cinematography, a semi-decent score, and a mostly good cast, RED's flaws outweigh its positives in a catastrophic way. In one word, RED is corny. The majority of jokes only result in dead-end silence, with just a few hitting the mark properly. There is no originality to be found, other than the under-utilised gimmick. Mary-Louise Parker gives a thoroughly unconvincing performance, but none are more disappointing than John Malkovich's, though it might not be his fault as every line of dialogue written for him is so incredibly unfunny. RED is also incredibly dated, even in its use of sound effects and colour correction. The action is uninspired, badly filmed, and at the limits of what is required for choreography. A few explosions and a spinning car cannot hide what a disappointment RED is; I do not look forward to watching the sequel.

better than most. Good cast with that tinge of humor we all need and less computer enhancement imaging and special effects, and less far-fetched action like a Cruise movie has. That is good.

It may not be the non-stop thrill ride you might expect, but Red makes the most of its all-star cast, all of whom are at the top of their game. I feel like Bruce Willis had been phoning it in in the early 21st century, particularly in the more recent Die Hard sequels, but his strong performance in Red is a pleasant surprise. Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren, Karl Urban, Brian Cox, and Mary-Louise Parker are all great as well, and John Malkovich steals the show as Marvin Boggs. The film's well-shot action and consistently great humor add to the fun. The script is expertly written and filled with memorable lines and one-liners, and the comic book-style and postcard transitions are the icing on the cake.

With an extremely talented cast, RED delivers on the action and laughs that these talented actors and actresses are known for.

Frank is Cool, but Malkovich steals the movie.

John Malkovich is the one who makes this movie enjoyable :D

I blame the directory and screenwriter for this horribly directed and written mess. It appears the director was simple enamored with the cast and let them play it however they wanted, and the result was painful to watch. Bruce Willis played it all wrong and his 'love interest' (wow, was that laughable) had ZERO chemistry and that ham-handed grandfather mauling kiss at the end almost made me lose my lunch.

"you're in love with her... I can tell" was the most laughable line in the move. My wife and I can't stop laughing over that one.

The rest of the cast was passable for a 'light comedy' but Willis and the 'love interest' were either terribly under directed or horribly miss-cast.

The Storyline from the beginning doesn't even make sense. Useless movie.

I will freely admit to liking this film more than I should, but what can I say, I watched it in the right frame of mind to be charmed by the cast of older stars who completely OWN their younger counterparts in any given situation.

Now I just need to go and read the Warren Ellis comics as well, just because he's never let me down.

Worth a rental.
