Description

Three teenagers soon regret having disturbed the reclusive Avery Ludlow (Brian Cox) in this revenge thriller from directors Trygve Allister Diesen and Lucky McKee. Korean war veteran Ludlow runs the local hardware store in a small Northwest town. Since the death of his wife, his only companion has been his old dog named Red, who he takes with him on his fishing trips. One afternoon while at his favourite spot, three teenagers emerge from the nearby woods demanding money. When Ludlow tries to reason with them, their ringleader, Danny (Noel Fisher), shoots Red. Tracking down the boy's father Michael (Tom Sizemore), and receiving no justice from the family, or later the courts, Ludlow realises he has no option but to claim it himself, by whatever means he sees fit.

Synopsis
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. Frank Moses (Bruce Willis) used to be a hired gun for the CIA. Along with Joe (Morgan Freeman), Marvin (John Malkovich), and Victoria (Helen Mirren), Frank's specialty was carrying out contracts that the government didn't want the public to know about. These days, Frank and his old gang are all retired, but the powers that be are still concerned that they know too much, and dispatch a team of top assassins to ensure their silence. Now, Frank and his former team members realize that their only hope for survival is to break into CIA headquarters and expose the truth. But once they're in, the group uncovers evidence of a massive cover-up that promises to rock the very foundation of our government. Karl Urban, Brian Cox, Richard Dreyfuss, and Ernest Borgnine co-star.

Movie Critics
A.V. Club
"[T]his is a capable, experienced cast with extensive acting chops..." -- Grade: B-
Tasha Robinson (14 Oct 2010, )
Empire
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."
Angie Errigo (22 Oct 2010, )
Hollywood Reporter
"[W]hat keeps the movie going is the gameness of the cast, some of whom strike a perfect balance between self-consciousness and credulity."
(19 Oct 2010, )
Los Angeles Times
"Mirren is most at ease in her role, handling her lines with aplomb and firing automatic weapons like she means it."
Kenneth Turan (15 Oct 2010, )
Movieline
"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..."
Michelle Orange (13 Oct 2010, )
Sight and Sound
"[I]t is Helen Mirren, as the demure Victoria Winslow, who is the real casting coup."
Sight and Sound Critic (1 Dec 2010, )
Total Film
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."
Aubrey Day (1 Oct 2010, )
Uncut
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."
Michael Bonner (1 Mar 2011, )
Variety
"[A]n amusing, lightfooted caper about a team of aging CIA veterans rudely forced out of retirement."
Justin Chang (29 Sep 2010, )
Wall Street Journal
"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."
(15 Oct 2010, )
Washington Post
"[T]his adaptation of a graphic novel series gets into a cool, sophisticated swing."
(25 Jan 2014, )
