Starring: Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren

Director: Robert Schwentke

Running Time: 111 mins

RED is an American film about a group of ex-CIA agents who attempt to bring down a deadly international assassin, despite the fact that their best time has passed.

This was an interesting film in my opinion, as it was obvious that it was taking the mick out of typical Bruce Willis films, which I found very funny, but some of the actors cast: Helen Mirren, John Malkovich etc. was a bit weird for such an action-packed movie.

I enjoyed all of the action and heavy amounts of fighting in nearly every scene, and the story was good too, albeit completely predictable, but that’s why the movie was made. The only problem with it is that it was not funny enough at some points to be taken so light-heartedly.

Overall, I’ll give this a 7.5, because the action was great, as well as the story, but it wasn’t the most hilarious comedy-action film you’ll ever see…
