Consensus: It may not be the killer thrill ride you'd expect from an action movie with a cast of this caliber, but Red still thoroughly outshines most of its big-budget counterparts with its wit and style.

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.

Together they make up for decent movie, with occasionally good action scenes.

Time Out

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.

What really works for Red is our shared history with the actors involved.

The cast all turn in excellent performances and as a light, enjoyable caper RED succeeds, but ultimately it's lazy, derivative and immature.

Chicago Reader

Much of the enjoyment comes from seeing these respected thespians so thoroughly embody cartoon characters; it's like Sidney Lumet directing Space Jam.

Denver Post

Red has ka-booms, rat-a-tat-tats and a wildly extended first date. It's edgy and fantastically gooey -- and flaunts it.

Sean Burns
Philadelphia Weekly

The low-key character comedy gets buried under all the pyrotechnics.

I'm even surprised myself to say that the sequel is better.

Overall, it's okay.. The great thing about it just how Helen Mirren can fire a gun while wearing a dress in that age, it just amazed me..
