Red, the newest action comedy movie starring Bruce Willis and Morgan Freeman, opens in theaters nationwide Friday, October 15, 2010.
Frank, Joe, Marvin, and Victoria used to be the CIA’s top agents — but the secrets they know just made them the Agency’s top targets. Now framed for assassination, they must use all of their collective cunning, experience and teamwork to stay one step ahead of their deadly pursuers and stay alive. To stop the operation, the team embarks on an impossible, cross-country mission to break into the top-secret CIA headquarters, where they will uncover one of the biggest conspiracies and cover-ups in government history.
Red stars Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Parker, Helen Mirren, Karl Urban, Brian Cox and Richard Dreyfuss and is directed by Robert Schwentke.
Red received mixed reviews from the critics.
“RED stands for “Retired, Extremely Dangerous,” though “Reasonably Entertaining Diversion” works too.” -Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
“RED is neither a good movie nor a bad one. It features actors we like doing things we wish were more interesting.” -Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
“Although tailor-made for genre fans, it benefits from flavors of humor and romance that keep its appeal from being fanboy-only.” -John DeFore,
“RED has enough acting flourishes and incidental action pleasures to make it an adrenalin-jacked giggle, if not exactly the romp one so fervently expects.” – Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
