My Thoughts on RED

The selling point of this film, based on a graphic novel, is the age of the lead actors, who all play retired spies forced back into action. Everything in the film is appropriately tongue-in-cheek, however the film does turn out to be a fairly decent action film in its own right. 

While you would expect a film like this (with a cast that includes Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, and John Malkovich) to be released during the summer months, I suppose there are no longer any real limits about when you can release an action film.  Fun film.
