Red (2010)


Based off of the comic book of the same name, the story follows Frank Moses… a retired yet extremely dangerous black-ops agent who unwillingly becomes the target of a government assassin. With his life and life of his other black-op agents on the line, Frank assembles his former team back from retirement to uncover the conspiracy. Making matters worse, he accidentally involves a female telephone operator who he’s had a crush on. This is what a good action movie is all about: great witty dialogue, a cast that seems to work great with each other, explosions and some type of secret government operation. This was a fun ride from beginning to end but I think Malkovich shines through the entire film and upstages, in some scenes, veteran action hero Bruce Willis.
