Retired agent Frank Moses leads a quiet—some might say boring—life, gardening and finding excuses to chat on the phone with Sarah, a 30-something federal pension worker. But his peaceful existence is shattered when three hit men show up in his house, and Frank must call on every ounce of his past training to escape with his life. Knowing that whoever’s trying to kill him will likely target those he cares for, Frank snatches Sarah from her home and flees, struggling to stay one step ahead of his deadly pursuers. But when Frank and Sarah begin digging into the identity of his attackers, they discover Frank is on a hit list along with several of his former CIA cohorts—and that the organization ordering the killings is none other than the Agency itself. Someone at the CIA wants him dead. But who? And why? Going on the offensive, Frank rounds up an unlikely crew of his past agency sidekicks, including the paranoid Marvin, the loyal Joe and the lovely Victoria. With the Agency hot on their trails, Frank and his team must do everything they can to solve the mystery before it’s too late—and hopefully instil in their assailants some of the old-school code of honor by which they still choose to live.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Red is a goofball lament. It's saying that in the good old days, or at least in the good old movie days, our killers were good-time guys.
Fresh: They're not too old for this shit.
Fresh: RED is an efficient and expertly made flick, although it lacks a personal touch from director Robert Schwentke.
Rotten: Red may look tantalising on paper, but the end product is nothing to smile about.
This is one of the best movies you will ever see. The cast is great, along with the plot. Very funny in parts and very serious in others. It's on both ends of the genre spectrum. If you buy this movie, I am 98% sure you will be extremely impressed.
Some movies are works of art, but some movies are just fun to watch. RED is a fun movie. It taps into the baby boomer generation and may not be as much fun to
the younger set, but I recommend this movie to anyone .
I don't know that I would have enjoyed this movie in my mid-20's, but in my mid-40's it was quite entertaining. So many gifted actors willing to make light of their growing older. How could you not enjoy the interaction between Mirren, Freeman, Malkovich and Willis? Karl Urban (Star Trek, Bourne Supremacy) continues to show such versatility as an actor. No, there's not deep-seated truths about life here, simply a fun escape from reality. Definitely worth the viewing.
