Retired, Extremely Dangerous
David and I watched Red over the weekend. I’m not sure how I totally missed it when it was in the theaters, but it just never hit my radar. I have to say I loved it.
Bruce Willis plays Frank Moses, a retried CIA agent living a quiet life in Cleveland until a hit squad shows up at his house to kill him. From then on, he’s on the run. He reassembles his old team, played by the talented Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich, and Helen Mirren, to figure out what’s going on and keep themselves from getting killed. He also has to bring along his love-interest, because her life is obviously in danger too.
Great movie. Lots of action, explosions, shootings, kidnappings, but really, really hilarious, just truly enjoyable to watch. And a happy ending for all the characters you like. What more could you ask for?
One of the funniest parts:
(Helen Mirren’s character is Victoria)
Victoria (about Frank): …If you break his heart, I will kill you. And bury your body in the woods.
Sarah Ross: Wow… Okay.
