Red (2010) ★★★★☆

The plot

Frank Moses (Bruce Willis) retired from the CIA. His retirement, too calm to his liking, takes a new turn when a CIA squad breaks in his house to assassinate him. Reuniting with other ex-agents being tracked to death, Frank will try and uncover the reasons that got them on a kill list.

My verdict

First remark: Bruce Willis jumps into the heart of action just as well as he used to more than 20 years earlier. The rhythm of the movie is perfect. As in most action movies, the scenario is rather simple and not of prime importance. As one would hope, the action is at its best, and sometimes a bit over the top, but that's what you want in a comedic action film. The acting is good and it's a must-see for all Bruce Willis fans. Whatever you might expect of it, RED delivers. 4 stars.
