Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Red is a goofball lament. It's saying that in the good old days, or at least in the good old movie days, our killers were good-time guys."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"You're never too old for mayhem."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"It delivers a few thrills here and there but ultimately a bland story and forgettable characters turn Red into a mediocre action film at best."
‑ Matt Joseph, We Got This Covered
"Put your brain on hold for a few hours and you'll enjoy this light-hearted action comedy."
‑ John Hanlon, Big Hollywood
"All the stars seem to be having great fun playing goodies and baddies and running around shooting things. But they could do the same thing paintballing, sparing us from having to watch them and avoiding having to spend 60 million dollars in the process."
‑ Laurence Boyce, The Baltic Times
"Beneath its light exterior is not only a neat, if unsubtle, political undercurrent but a rebellious streak about how the allure of firing an RPG outweighs the prospect of retirement."
‑ David Jenkins, Time Out
"What really works for Red is our shared history with the actors involved."
‑ Laremy Legel,
"A playful action blockbuster with a top-shelf cast and a refreshingly unconventional concept."
‑ Jason Buchanan, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"The best reason to get out there and see it is to see these actors take on this kind of over-the-top material. The fun they appear to be having on screen ends up being quite contagious."
‑ Jeff Beck,
"A fun little spy thriller that twists the old adage that you can't teach an old dog new tricks and suggests that perhaps they can teach you something new instead."
‑ Wesley Lovell, Cinema Sight
"Much of the enjoyment comes from seeing these respected thespians so thoroughly embody cartoon characters; it's like Sidney Lumet directing Space Jam."
‑ Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader
"Red has ka-booms, rat-a-tat-tats and a wildly extended first date. It's edgy and fantastically gooey -- and flaunts it."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"Oh, that "RED" was the giddy romp it might have been, it promises to be or it thinks it is."
‑ Roger Moore, Movie Nation
"The cast's efforts go about halfway to compensating for Red's lack of inspiration elsewhere."
‑ Jay Antani, Cinema Writer
"Si el entretenimiento funciona, además, se debe en gran parte a un atractivo elenco que se divierte como loco jugando a los espías y a los héroes de acción."
‑ Enrique Buchichio, Uruguay Total
