Red * Robert Schwentke (2010)

Posted in action and tagged on by .

“Red” opens drowsyly with Bruce Willis as an old man who keeps calling his retirement agency because he likes the voice on the other side. Just when I said: “I thought this was an action film” it becomes clear that Frank Moses is not just some old man, he is RED, retired and extremely dangerous. He gets into a situation which forces him to kidnap Sarah and look up some old colleagues. A hip action-comedy unfolds with besides Willis, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich, Brian Cox and many more. It all results in a quite typical film with the obligatory chasing-scenes, explosions, shootouts and fighting. The story brings no surprises, but the star-teams makes “Red” an entertaining film and there are some laughs and chuckles.
