Based on Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner’s famous comic strip, RED (Retired Extremely Dangerous) is an explosive comedy, action-packed and suspenseful. The film features the story of Frank (Bruce Willis), a former top spy, with some problems adapting to the usual retired life. As he seems to know too much, the new CIA leadership sends a super assassin in his footsteps, so Frank appeals to his old team members to save his life.
Joe (Morgan Freeman), his former head of the CIA, is now a resident of an elderly asylum. Victoria (Hellen Mirren), a CIA elite character, fails to have a normal life and is still keen to act. And Marvin (John Malkovich), a former government assassin who has been given a daily drug for 11 years, is at least eccentric.
Pensioners in the shock team do not seem to have too many chances, but because they are now the CIA’s main targets, they have to unleash all their talents to survive. And as the best defense is the attack, they set off on an incredibly bold mission.
