What do you do when you need a good action star in the modern age of limited action movie stars? You cast one of the greatest action stars of all time, Bruce Willis (The Expendables). Then you add assemble a talented cast of Hollywood greats such as Morgan Freeman (The Bucket List), Helen Mirren (State of Play), John Malkovich (Jonah Hex). The result is RED. The film is an entertaining, terrific intermingling of action and comedy. This enjoyable merger is an action packed, jocular approach to the spy genre. The film also features Mary Louise-Parker (The Spiderwick Chronicles), Karl Urban (Star Trek) with Brian Cox (Zodiac), Richard Dreyfuess (Poseidon) and Ernest Borgnine (Strange Wilderness).
When a retired, former CIA covert operative is tagged RED (Retired Extremely Dangerous) then targeted termination, he foils the first attempt and then he decides to recruit other RED operatives to discover the source of the attempts and in the process he uncovers and must stop a conspiracy.
