Movie Reviews 49 – RED

RED (2010)
Frank Moses (Bruce Willis) is having a conversation with his pension adjustor Sarah (Mary-Louise Parker) and it’s evident that he’s more interested in hearing and talking to her than receiving a check claimed to be missing since he’s got it right in his hands. Frank is a retired black-ops guy and all is fine and even boring until he realizes that a whole bunch of operatives that used to work with him in the old days are getting killed. Frank and Sarah finally meet up for a first date and that’s when all hell breaks loose. The targets were all ops that have been bestowed the Retired Extremely Dangerous (RED) moniker, a group that have worked together (and even sometimes against one another) on many a secret mission. Seems that back in Guatemala there was this one mission to rescue a particular guy and now everyone that was on that mission are being taken down one by one. But exactly why remains unclear as well as the identity and significance of that mysterious guy they rescued. A great cast including Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren, Richard Dreyfuss and even Ernest Borgnine all deliver in this movie that can only be described as outrageously funny and packed with action.
