RED

… stands for Retired and Extremely Dangerous. Now you know. Four crusty former CIA agents (Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren; respectively bored, deranged, dying, and only semi-retired) find themselves targeted for assassination by their former employer. But you can’t out-black-ops four ex-black-opsers – especially when they join forces. Fairly routine 24-style conspiracy-uncovering ensues.

The marketing for this makes it look quite serious, but it’s done more for laughs and gets a bit silly at times – ripping apart Bruce’s suburban home with 10,000 rounds of machine-gun fire isn’t a very subtle, plausibly-deniable way to kill him. Still, it has its moments. 7/10
