The flashback to his daughter was beyond moving
17 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

The little girl dancing looked just like she was his daughter. Perfect casting. It was insightful, moving and very innocent. The little dancer should have gotten credit and hopefully she will return in future flashbacks so we can see what makes Red tick. He was humanized in that scene and I didn't expect to be moved by her dance, but was drawn in magically. She was poised as his daughter would have been and he looked so affectionately proud that I felt bad when his moment in time ended. I also wanted more. It was beautifully shot and choreographed perfectly. That scene stole the show. i think that it balanced out the evil and violence in such a gentle way. The music overlay along with Red's narration of how to go on living with the loss actually made me want to hug my own children more. Bravo!!!
