RED (Released to Theaters USA 2010)

Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì 

Red—fun treat—combines John Malkovitch with Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren, and Bruce Willis to produce a DC Comic movie that more than entertains. The violence in this movie works at a realistic level with the edge relieved a little with its comedic dialogue. Watch for Mary Louise Parker as Willis’ love interest. It earned its 2013 sequel, Red 2. This movie works in the quality movie watch and earns its time and money investment.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. Fun and unusual DC Comic film may not be the expected DC superhero story, but entertains at an exceptionally high level with excellent flow, timing, and continuity.
