The stars? Well, while I'm sure they had fun phoning in their performances - I hope they've destroyed the records - I can't help wishing they were all doing something more interesting.

Together they make up for decent movie, with occasionally good action scenes.
March 11, 2016
The cast all turn in excellent performances and as a light, enjoyable caper RED succeeds, but ultimately it's lazy, derivative and immature.
April 28, 2015
The low-key character comedy gets buried under all the pyrotechnics.
November 9, 2013
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.

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.

...filled with the kind of sprightly paced, lighthearted violence that's supposed to evoke chuckles but mostly seems under-heated and over-loud.
October 30, 2010
Yes, it's silly. But 'Red' is above-average because it boasts so much serious star power.
October 28, 2010
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.
October 28, 2010
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.
October 25, 2010
RED offers cheap thrills and a few nice gags. It could have been more than that, but the appetite for this stuff is insatiable.
October 22, 2010
Action films with a sense of humor can be the best medicine sometimes at the movies. It's just that this one has one joke repeated over and over again--and the one-liners aren't that funny.
October 22, 2010
No amount of jazzy cool can hide very large problems in the plot department.
October 22, 2010
Schwentke must think his audience is very easily pleased.
October 21, 2010
It's very silly and runs out of steam well before the end, though there are one or two gags.
October 21, 2010
Red may look tantalising on paper, but the end product is nothing to smile about.
October 21, 2010
There's the occasional twinkle from distinguished performers obviously not taking it too seriously, but this is by and large a waste of their talents.
October 21, 2010
Red has its moments, including a finale that finally provides the action comedy vibe we expected all along, but it still has to count as a mild disappointment
October 21, 2010
This action-comedy has a wacky tone that's entertaining but never involving.
October 20, 2010
Not many actors can get away with switching in and out of character, and yet Willis does it with ease, confident in our love. And we do love Willis.
