RED was not on my radar

RED-FILM

I had no expectations when I saw this film in 2010. It was not on my radar. I had never heard of the comic and I had already seen Morgan Freeman work with Bruce Willis in Lucky Number Slevin. I wasn’t that impressed with that film, but I was willing to give RED a chance because it adds Helen Mirren and John Malkovich to the ensemble of Retired, Extremely Dangerous operatives. I must admit the film was funny and the action sequences were entertaining. Action-comedies are Willis’s bread and butter, but watching the other three film icons participate was difficult to accept at first, but once I was able to let go of my prejudices I must admit the film was very funny and the action sequences were entertaining. However, I would not watch choose to watch it again, unless it was on cable late at night. With that said, I will wait for RED2 to hit REDbox.
