Red (2010)

This movie was released at the same time as a bunch of other shlocky action/comedy movies and I threw my hands up at the whole bunch and decided I would wait until they all became AMC "movie classics" in ten years. But then someone in my household refused to watch Tron: Legacy or 127 Hours, so we watched "Red." And I loved it! It is solid entertainment. They cast some very lovable geezers (Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich), which makes you cheer every time they blow somebody up. Morgan Freeman does deliver a wistful speech on aging which made me wish that the movie "The Bucket List" was about two terminally-ill old men who decide to kill a bunch of assassins and go out in a blaze of glory, but this movie is sort of the next best thing.

Put "Red" on your Bucket List today.
