Red (Special Edition) [Blu-ray]
Nothing beats the feeling of watching the suspense, spellbound and riveting film that just purely blazing with the unstoppable action, no mentioning the inclusion of A-list actors, you too know that. Surely you are thinking what makes me to think about notion, and one thing that made me to have that thought was when I was watching the action packed film known as Red that was incredibly thrilling and captivating the whole time. This film which was directed by the Robert Schwentke
features familiar credible actors such as Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, and John Malkovich together with many more that significantly added the film to have the sure-fire and jaw-dropping effect when watching it. This is how the story unfolds, it initially starts when we see Frank (Willis) who is a former black-ops CIA agent living a quiet life alone, that is until the day a hit squad shows up to kill him. With his identity compromised, Frank reassembles his old team Joe (Freeman), Marvin (Malkovich) and Victoria (Mirren) and sets out to prove that they still have a few tricks up their sleeves. This is where we see trigger happy guys spray the metals doing the rounds in the air, so brace yourself to watch the bullets fly in this explosive action-comedy that critics call a rip-roaring good time. Like they say you cannot teach an old barking dog new trick, same here with the agent Frank out of the CIA, but you can't take the CIA out of the agent--or so discovers Frank Moses, to his chagrin.
Frank, played by Bruce Willis
, simply wants to live his simple life with his government pension. But when a troop of black-ops guys descends on his house one night and blows it to smithereens, Frank realizes he needs to get a few of his old colleagues together and find out what's what. That's the premise of Red, a jolly action flick based on a rather more serious graphic novel. Because Frank's old posse includes kicky roles for Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich, and a tea-pouring, hot-lead-spraying Helen Mirren, the movie boasts a certain appeal just at the "Holy cow, can you believe who's in this thing?" level. Also, Mary-Louise Parker steals much of the film as Frank's unsuspecting civilian date (swept into the action because she might innocently become a CIA target, too), Brian Cox hams it up as Frank's former Soviet adversary (wistfully recalling how he always wanted to assassinate a US president), and Karl Urban (Star Trek) supplies brawn and brains as the current CIA agent in charge of bringing the hammer down on Frank. The breezy tone barely pauses to notice the semi-serious story point at the heart of the plot (a hazily recalled disaster in Guatemala many years earlier), nor the dead bodies that pile up around the edges of the action.
Generally, this blockbuster film is wholeheartedly captivating and engaging at its means and is interestingly worth watching for. And the good thing about this film is that you can have it as the deluxe edition that is now available in Blu-ray format to meet your technological demands at its means.
