Red Movie Reviews
User reviews on Red
This movie was funny and entertaining. The actors had really good chemistry. I bought it and have watched it probably 20 times.
Just saw this movie. I thought it was hilarious, and action filled with a tiny bit of romance (not enough to gag a guy so acceptable for men to watch). It is a busy action filled movie and that is the kind I like. I did not find it boring or lagging. The special effects are done well.
Normally, when I review a film and really, really like it, I generally do the write up the very next day. To me, a great film is one you want to talk about. “Remember that scene where____ and _____ did that ______? Didn’t that remind you of that time we were at that little café in Vienna?”
Elaine and I saw REDS last week. I’ve been meaning to write a review but I just hadn’t gotten around to it. Now with Terry’s below, maybe I don’t have to.
I’ll just toss in my two bits worth. REDS was a fun flick, it was a silly flick and I love fun and silly flicks. (THE EXPENDABLES and MACHETE come to mind) but when REDS was over and Elaine and I were walking out of the theater we were both saying, “Well, now what do you want to do?” For us, there just wasn’t all that much to talk about the movie.
Seeing Helen Mirren blast away with a tripod mounted MaDeuce was a lot of fun and I loved John Malkovich hiding a H&K 40mm grenade launcher in that stupid stuffed bunny (Oh, darn. That’s a spoiler! Sorry) but I could never figure out WHY they were all being hunted down. I knew the WHO and the WHEN and the BECAUSE but it still never made sense to either of us.
Seeing REDS in a theater for $3.25 a head for a matinee was a fun way to kill a few hours but I don’t care to see it again.
There is a reason that why BASKIN ROBBINS sells 31 flavors?
it was a good movie at lil slow at times was funny ass hell to me good movie
'Red' was good. I haven't ever been disappointed in a Bruce Willis flick. Maybe because we're both bald & people always tell me we look alike, so I always end up pretending to be whatever character he played. Maybe because I've been a fan since his 'Moonlighting' days, sleuthing around with sexy Cybill Shepherd back in the 80's...I was so jealous of him for that...anyway, back to 'Red':
Fun movie. The killing was real, not all schticked-up, and combining that with the comedic aspect made for an unusual mix--kind of like 'The Whole Nine Yards' only with a bit more of an edge. As per usual, all the really funny bits were given in the trailer, leaving nothing left for a good guffaw in the theatre. You know what they say about movie trailers today: anything longer is the Director's Cut. This was no 'Hudson Hawk', but was enjoyable nonetheless.
This site only allows whole stars, and 'Red' is no 4-star film, but it deserves more than three. I give it 3.5 of 5 ?'s
(P.S - If you've never seen 'Hudson Hawk', it is a must-see. Period. End of story).
Red was the movie I was hoping to see when I saw The Expendables this summer, though in a completely different way. Where The Expendables got guys together that they thought I wanted to see in one film, Red gets people together who I never expected to see in this kind of movie, with much more enjoyable results.
Bruce Willis plays Frank, a retired CIA agent suddenly brought out of retirement by a gang of assassins trying to kill him. This attempt sends Frank out to collect his old gang, played by Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich and Helen Mirren as they try and figure out who is after them.
The story is really incidental to just getting to see these actors (and in this case, that's a true term) do this kind of movie. These are Oscar nominees and winners, and they're having a great time. Helen Mirren firing a gun, for crying out loud! It's one of those movies that you go to and don't worry about plot. Just go in looking for a good time, and you'll probably find it.
