RED(2010) reviewSynopsis: When his idyllic life is threatened by a high-tech assassin, former black-ops agent Frank Moses reassembles his old team in a last ditch effort to survive.
RED seemed like a cheap version of The Losers
at first glance, but then get a little over 30 minutes into the film and it is actually quite the opposite. The Winners. (Oooh...That was BAD)
Anyway, the film wasn't exactly the most exciting film I've seen, considering it was a graphic novel adaptation, although nothing could be as bad as X-Men Origins: Wolverine, or The Fantastic Four, the ashcanned version. But hold on a second - I'm not saying this was BAD, I'm just saying it wasn't THAT good. Don't let that detract from seeing it though, because there were several segments within the film which made me chuckle, the reason for this was the awesomeness who was Mary Louis Parker. She made me laugh. She was funny. She was HIGHLARIOUS.
Aside from that, there was little in this film which was impressive, other than the stylistic (or is it now becoming generic?) Comic-Book visuals, and that one awesomehellyeahbadass scene when John McClane walks out of the car while it's moving, THAT, was impressive.
Not much to mention about RED, the performances were admirable, but felt somewhat forced, like they didn't even want to be there. I mean, fine, whatever, find another film to act in, I don't care. Screw you Morgan Freeman, you weren't even in this film that much anyway.
Okay film, fun plot, good performances, MLP was funny. She was.
