Red, from director Robert Schwentke (Flightplan, Time Travelers Wife) is a must see, staring Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Helen Mirren, Karl Urban, and Mary-Louise Parker. Highly entertaining and enjoyable movie, for pretty much everyone. Dome content may be a little strong for the younger kids, but anyone over the age of 12 should be fine.

The story is simple, a team of now retired CIA assets are forced to use their skills when powers that be classify them as R.E.D. or Retired Extremely Dangerous. For a film of this type is was very well put together, never going so far fun as to lose it’s edge. A common mistake made in the action-comedy genera this day and age.

My only negative is that the twist was a little easy for me to spot. However, when I commented as such with my viewing party, it was pointed out that it is a usual problem for me. Your mileage with this will no doubt vary, and it did nothing to lessen my enjoyment for this movie.

Good news is that this movie was successful enough that it had a sequel green lit already. If it hold up to anything like the quality we got out of this first one, we have one good movie lined up for the future.
