RED: Worth seeing.

Posted by Jason O on Oct 25, 2010 in Movies/TV/DVDs |

Saw the new Bruce Willis actioner, RED, last night. Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich, Karl Urban and Mary Louise Parker star. About a group of former CIA agents being hunted down because they all know a secret. Great fun, ridiculously silly action scenes, and Malkovich hams it up as the resident nut with his heart in the right place. Was also suprised at how good Mary Louise Parker was, given that I could not stand her character in The West Wing, and was never sure whther it was her or the character I just did not like. Turns out it was the character. Brian Cox and Richard Dreyfus also onboard to lob extra chunks of ham at the camera when needed.

I do enjoy your reviews.

Take a look at Broadwalk Empire. I’ll be interested to hear what you think of it.

Kind regards

Haven’t seen it yet, but I understand that it wanders into Good Fellas territory, which sounds like fun. Check out the American AMC network’s new conspiracy thriller show “Rubicon”. It’s very slow burning, but curiously attractive.
