Storyline

Frank (Bruce Willis) is retired, bored and lonely living off his government pension in a nondescript suburb in an equally nondescript house. The only joy in Frank's life are his calls to the government pension processing center when he gets to talk to his case worker Sarah (Mary-Louis Parker). Sarah is as bored and lonely as Frank and marks her conversations with the unknown Frank and her spy novels as the only things fun in her life. When something in Frank's past forces Frank back into his old line of work and puts an unwitting Sarah in the middle of the intrigue, Frank and Sarah begin a journey into Frank's past and the people he used to work with. Like Frank they are all RED ... Retired Extremely Dangerous. Written by Malcolm is Crazy

Trivia

Victoria gets into Stanton's event with an invitation apparently bearing a pseudonym. An early draft of the script indicates that the line originally had the name as "Ms. Smith", but in the scene as shot, the woman at the entrance addresses her as "Ms. Brown". After the death of her husband, Britain's Queen Victoria was said to have become romantically involved with one of her servants, and slanderous rumors circulated that she had even secretly married him. His name was John Brown; thus, those spreading the rumor derided Victoria as "Mrs. Brown". See more »

Sooo much fun!!! See it in theatres with an audience!!!
13 October 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

You will leave this film laughing. The action scenes are really good but it's the characters and actors that makes this film worth seeing. The casting in this film was perfect! Great all around supporting cast. Morgan Freeman is always a nice touch to any film. Helen Miran firing a Rambo sized gun is worth the admission alone. If you miss the classic Bruce Willis Action Comedies this one makes up for all the bad ones in recent years. But what really makes this film worth seeing in theatres with an audience is John Malkovich! John Malkovich steals the show with maybe the performance of his career. If Johnny Depp can get nominated for "Pirates" and Robert Downey Jr. can get nominated for "Tropic Thunder", then Malkovich should get nominated for this, seriously. Every time he came on screen the whole theatre would be dying with laughter.

Movies are expensive now and not all of them are worth seeing in theatre but this one is. It's not the best film ever made, the story could have been a little tighter, but I can promise you'll have a lot of fun and you will be laughing your ass off through most of it.
