Retired Extremely Dangerous and a fun, action packed movie

16 Oct

Frank Moses make Jack Bauer look like a school marm.

Seeing movies in the theater is a rare treat for the wife and me.  But with our youngest off spring off on a weekend camping trip we took the opportunity last night to see RED. 

RED is a story about a former black-ops agent who is being targeted by a high-tech assassin.  Frank Moses is ably played by action man Bruce Willis.  But completing the story are his team of Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren and John Malkovich.  Malkovich, in the way only he can, has several scene stealing moments.

Completing the cast are Mary-Louise Parker, Karl Urban, Richard Dreyfus and my favorite Ernest Borgnine.

I won’t spoil the plot other than to say lots of people get themselves all blowed up.  And more than once you’ll find yourself asking “how the heck will they get out of that?”

I don’t know if people like this really exist.  But, for our sake, I hope they do.

Pardon the pun, but the movie’s a blast.
