RED (Retired, Extremely Dangerous)

When we start our film. Frank Moses is living a quiet life of retirement. He calls a women who works at processing his retirement checks. Then one day some people come to kill him. They are unsuccessful. Thus, our adventure begins.

The good thing about the movie is its about retired people and how they transition from a life of action to a life of quiet solitude. They all handle it differently but none of them handle it well. It was originally a DC Comic and the transition to film was pretty seamless.

The best thing the movie does is stack the film with some great actors. Bruce, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich, Helen Mirren, Mary-Louise Parker,  Brian Cox and Karl Urban (oh, and Ernest Borgnine). Did I mention Richard Dreyfuss? Man, I am out of breath. Great cast. All bringing their A-game.

This movie is right in my wheel house. Comedy and action. It has the perfect blend of both. If you're looking for some fun you can't miss.

Did you enjoy it?

Would you see it in theaters again?

Would you buy it?

Would you rent it?

Would you watch it if you saw it was on TV?
