Action-comedy about a gang of ex-CIA agents who ditch their quiet retired lives and get back in the game of international espionage. Stellar cast includes Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich, Morgan Freeman and Kiwi Karl Urban.

Willis is Frank, who despite being out the game for some time, finds himself the target of a high-tech assassin. With his life, identity and lady friend (Mary-Louise Parker) in danger, Frank reassembles his old team in a last ditch effort to survive. Based on a three part comic book mini-series by Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner.

Only a curmudgeon could entirely resist the laid-back charms of Red, an amusing, light-footed caper about a team of aging CIA veterans rudely forced out of retirement.

It is possible to have a good time at RED, but it is not a very good movie.

This breezy action comedy is a noisy affirmation that life goes on after 50, that retirement doesn't mean redundancy, and that nobody - young or old - can wear a long cream evening gown like Mirren.

Red is neither a good movie nor a bad one. It features actors we like doing things we wish were more interesting.

To underestimate actors of this caliber -- even in a popcorn action flick -- would be dangerous indeed.

Red can't stop itself from trying too hard to be hip. It's not that it doesn't have effective moments, it's that it doesn't have as many as it thinks it does. The film's inescapable air of glib self-satisfaction is not only largely unearned, it's downright irritating.

Even the more cartoonish performances, like John Malkovich's acid-damaged paranoiac, fit the movie's vision of the vanished, wild-and-woolly heyday of spycraft.

Good fun, and though it breathes hard in the second half, the ensemble has charisma to spare.

Sometimes the delight you take in a movie isn't from the fact that it's particularly moving, or clever, or even a great film.
