A group of former government assassins fights back against the CIA after they're targeted for knowing too much in this adaptation of Warren Ellis' acclaimed DC Comics graphic novels.

More Details

Reviews:
"[A]n amusing, lightfooted caper about a team of aging CIA veterans rudely forced out of retirement." - 09/29/2010 Variety


"Mirren is most at ease in her role, handling her lines with aplomb and firing automatic weapons like she means it." - 10/15/2010 Los Angeles Times


"RED mixes high and low with a mad chemist's abandon....RED is given a hyper- and yet imaginatively stylized treatment by director Robert Schwentke..." - 10/13/2010 Movieline


"[T]his is a capable, experienced cast with extensive acting chops..." -- Grade: B- - 10/14/2010 A.V. Club


"[W]hat keeps the movie going is the gameness of the cast, some of whom strike a perfect balance between self-consciousness and credulity." - 10/19/2010 Hollywood Reporter


"Ms. Parker is a graceful comedienne, and it's no news that Mr. Willis is a past master of delicate -- yes, delicate -- self-irony, so their characters generate welcome fizz in the course of a fraught relationship." - 10/15/2010 Wall Street Journal


3 stars out of 5 -- "Over 20 years since DIE HARD, Bruce Willis is still playing that guy -- sardonic, wisecracking, good at killing -- and it works a treat." - 10/22/2010 Empire


3 stars out of 5 -- "Willis and Parker make an appealing couple, the latter's neurotic energy fueling possibly the best onscreen partnership Willis has had since Moonlighting." - 10/01/2010 Total Film


"[I]t is Helen Mirren, as the demure Victoria Winslow, who is the real casting coup." - 12/01/2010 Sight and Sound


3 stars out of 5 -- "THE EXPENDABLES proved it was profitable to assemble veteran stars....RED offers similar fare, though with a distinctly higher acting caliber." - 03/01/2011 Uncut


"[T]his adaptation of a graphic novel series gets into a cool, sophisticated swing." - 01/25/2014 Washington Post
