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.
75
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.

The result is like a sugar rush after a visit to the vintage candy store.

Red has more snappy joy in store than practically all of last summer's busted blockbusters.
75
It's a lot of fun and, because of the high quality of the cast, there's no need to feel guilty about praising such an inherently silly motion picture.
75
One of those rare action comedies that actually delivers action and comedy.

The best part of Red is the spectacle of terrific actors being terrific in novel ways.
70
To underestimate actors of this caliber -- even in a popcorn action flick -- would be dangerous indeed.
63
Too long, too busy, too loud, and too reliant on slam-bang stunt work, Red's glib dialogue and sinister government scenarios begin to wear.
58
Unfortunately, while RED's stars may have gotten better with age, its many clichés have not.
50
The uneven humor, half-baked plot and generic action scenes keep RED from being much fun.
