RieView: Seeing RED

Ever since we saw the first trailers for RED with Bruce Willis, we’ve anticipated going to see it. And from the first, we agreed it was a Drafthouse movie. Some things just are…

It was everything I expected it to be fast-paced fun with a side of suspense. And — as an added bonus — a couple of love stories thrown in.

With a cast like Willis, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich, and Helen Mirren (and that was just the headliners) it had a great deal going for it. Add Karl Urban, Richard Dreyfuss and Ernest Borgnine, and it was fun. I know I repeated that adjective, but that’s what it was. Nothing super cerebral, but a jolly-good time.

I’m not going to spoil it with a detailed analysis, but I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys spy-games, dark humor, and explosions. Lots of pretty explosions.
