Movie Review: Red - PG13

RED = Retired, Extremely Dangerous

The 4 central characters are played by Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich and Helen Mirren.  Besides being friends and retired CIA operatives, They all have 2 things in common:  They have had trouble leaving their CIA past in the past, and someone is trying to kill them.

Frank Moses (Willis) calls the CIA HR Deptartment regularly about his pension just to talk to someone and finds himself liking her.

Frank is the first target, and gathers the others to find out who is trying to kill them.  The 'why' is apparent pretty early on.  

There is a lot of action, and more humor than I expected.   In addition to the 4 main characters, Ernest Borgnine and Richard Dreyfuss also appear.

I found Red very entertaining from beginning to end.
