So if u need something done right..Get the old guys to do it. Of course, it helps! if the old guys used to be cold-blooded Government killers. Mind u, not that those are bad things to have in a big-budget Hollywood action-comedy, but u should know what u're getting into.
Bruce Willis is Frank Moses, a retired wetworks operative (re: CIA hitman) who is living a solitary existence in his old age, spending his time finding excuses to call the perky and pretty Sarah (dont know her real name), who mans the Government pension hotline that sends Frank his checks. After a small army of killers try to take him out one night, Frank realizes that his past has come back to bite him in the ass. Not being one to sit idly by as high-tech assassins gun him down(mmg xkn dok diam r kan after ur house burned down tragically!!), Frank makes it his mission to uncover the cause of his sudden popularity, which means seeking help from his fellow retirees. The good-natured, happy-to-lucky Joe (Morgan Freeman), the paranoid Marvin (also cant recall his real name), and the classy British dame Victoria (Helen Mirren) are more than happy to lend a hand well hand might b not that exact word it is actually a machinegun or miscile. Also along for the ride is Sarah, who Frank claims has to come with him or else she might be targeted. Then again, maybe that’s just a lame excuse to get her to tag along, being that he really, really likes her and all(dok koyak cek pencen n claim that he doesnt received it yet!!).
The order to take out Frank comes from on high, forcing our hero to work his way through the CIA all the way to the very top. Trying to stop him is company man William Cooper (Karl Urban), essentially a younger version of Frank Moses. And like Frank, Cooper is happy to do his job for his country, until he starts to realize he may be chasing the wrong “bad guys”. Of course, until he gets to that point, Cooper is running around with an endless army of CIA goons trying to kill Frank, Joe, Marvin, and Victoria.to think he might noticed when frank's leveled 4 lung cancer and 80 years old Joe being shot even he does said hold ur trigger and not to shoot anyone!!Joining in on the fun is Brian Cox, who is amusing throughout as the Russian equivalent of our retiree heroes. Ernest Borgnine has a brief but memorable cameo as the CIA’s records keeper, while Richard Dreyfuss, Julian McMahon, and Rebecca Pidgeon round out the cast as the film’s bureaucratic asshole bad guys faction.
Honestly, if u go into “Red” expecting some serious conspiracy thriller, it’s really not the movie’s fault that you’ll leave disappointed. If you’ve seen any of the film’s trailers, or even read anything about it prior to buying your ticket, you must have known that this is a flight of fancy not to be taken seriously on any level. For God’s sake, Helen friggin Mirren is running around with an MP5 taking on a small army of Secret Service agents in a hotel kitchen.
So what are u guys waiting for booked ur ticket or start queuing up so that we can share a thought bout this movie..
