Angela Bettis (a frequent McKee collaborator) was also attached to the project, playing the role of 'Carrie', but was fired and replaced by Kim Dickens for, again, unknown reasons. See more »
After reading lots of positive reviews on RED, I kind of knew it was going to be good..And it was.
It's kind of like the defender who plays well all season but does'nt get the player of the year award!
A brilliant film, but because it has'nt got special effects or a mega star cast it will not get the push it needs to hit the cinemas, but let me tell you. RED hits the spot.
It' about an oldish guy (played splendidly by Brian Cox) whose only buddy is his 14 year old dog called RED. One day out fishing with Red, three young guys turn up and harass him and eventually shoot Red dead.
So now Brian Cox' character wants justice, but two of the guys whose killed Reds' dad is the towns main man, Cox wants revenge!
Basically thats the plot, so simple, but so effective!
No blood and guts, No special effects...Just a brilliant film, no matter what genre you like. You just can't not like this film.
