I saw RED last night in a special advanced screening. All I can say is wow! What a treat of a movie. This should definitely help push DC Comics back on the big-screen adaptation radar after a couple of misfires. It seems like Marvel is the definitely the comic book -to-movie critical darlings of the day, but how many mutant movies can someone sit through? Frankly, I’ve always been more of a DC guy when it comes to the comic world so it thrills me to see a great movie based on a DC Comics title.
I can’t really say much until my review on Friday, but I can definitely let you know that this movie is worth every dime you would drop on it at a midnight screening or on Friday. It will definitely keep you awake and laughing. It’s got everything a fan of action films could ever want. There’s even a little romance thrown in for the ladies.
Frank, Joe, Marvin, and Victoria used to be the CIA’s top agents — but the secrets they know just made them the Agency’s top targets. Now framed for assassination, they must use all of their collective cunning, experience and teamwork to stay one step ahead of their deadly pursuers and stay alive. To stop the operation, the team embarks on an impossible, cross-country mission to break into the top-secret CIA headquarters, where they will uncover one of the biggest conspiracies and cover-ups in government history.
RED was directed by Robert Schwentke and stars Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich, Helen Mirren, Karl Urban, and Mary-Louise Parker.
The movie hits theaters this coming Friday, October 15th.
