More Info:
  • John DeFore

    Even the more cartoonish performances, like John Malkovich's acid-damaged paranoiac, fit the movie's vision of the vanished, wild-and-woolly heyday of spycraft.

  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Red isn't a great movie, but it's great fun, and if that sounds like damning with faint praise, you take things too seriously.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Michelle Orange

    The result is like a sugar rush after a visit to the vintage candy store.

    Movieline Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    Red has more snappy joy in store than practically all of last summer's busted blockbusters.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Amy Biancolli

    This breezy action comedy is a noisy affirmation that life goes on after 50, that retirement doesn't mean redundancy, and that nobody - young or old - can wear a long cream evening gown like Mirren.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    It's a lot of fun and, because of the high quality of the cast, there's no need to feel guilty about praising such an inherently silly motion picture.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    One of those rare action comedies that actually delivers action and comedy.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    RED is so much fun -- and its Over the Hill Gang so likeable -- that this is one of those rare cases where I wouldn't mind seeing them come out of retirement again for another romp.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Shawn Levy

    Red isn't edifying, ennobling, or artful. It's just an utterly satisfying combination of big kicks, cheap thrills and real laughs.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    All those guys are a blast, and the dark-hearted idiocy of Red is mostly quite enjoyable.

    Salon.com Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    To underestimate actors of this caliber -- even in a popcorn action flick -- would be dangerous indeed.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Robert Wilonsky

    Not the best. Not the worst. Just the classiest.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    Only a curmudgeon could entirely resist the laid-back charms of Red, an amusing, light-footed caper about a team of aging CIA veterans rudely forced out of retirement.

    Variety Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    The best part of Red is the spectacle of terrific actors being terrific in novel ways.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    There's no denying the kick you get from seeing Borgnine (forever lovelorn Marty to me, when he's not tooling around my head as Cabbie, from John Carpenter's Escape From New York) and company kick ass, take names, and go batshit crazy one last time.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    It's an amusing geriatric uprising that might just as well be titled "Gray."

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Tasha Robinson

    Part of it is cheap thrills, of course; this is a capable, experienced cast with extensive acting chops, and it's trashy fun watching them descend to the level of the material.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    RED is a poisoned valentine to the CIA, and that approach, too, is in keeping with its cold-war sentimentality.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Red starts repeating itself and spinning its wheels and looking for an ending, well before the ending arrives. The actors have considerable fun with it, though.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    Excels at bringing on the high-power pyrotechnics.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    Too long, too busy, too loud, and too reliant on slam-bang stunt work, Red's glib dialogue and sinister government scenarios begin to wear.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    Unlike "Wild Hogs" or last summer's "The Expendables," this adaptation of the "Red" graphic novel series gets into a cool, sophisticated swing.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Red has enough acting flourishes and incidental action pleasures to make it an adrenalin-jacked giggle, if not exactly the romp one so fervently expects.

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • Angie Errigo

    Good fun, and though it breathes hard in the second half, the ensemble has charisma to spare.

    Empire Full Review
  • Keith Uhlich

    It's the casting, stupid!

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Ben Sachs

    The film preserves many of Ellis's amoral one liners (best delivered by Malkovich and by Richard Dreyfuss as one of the villains), though as in much of his writing, the fun is discolored by a profound cynicism.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Keith Staskiewicz

    Unfortunately, while RED's stars may have gotten better with age, its many clichés have not.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    Red is neither a good movie nor a bad one. It features actors we like doing things we wish were more interesting.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    The uneven humor, half-baked plot and generic action scenes keep RED from being much fun.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    "The Expendables" trotted out the concept this summer, and it was good dumb fun - a nudge-nudge wink-wink '80s movie on steroids. RED is more self-consciously wacky, more stridently in your face, and more disappointing.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    The star turns are Red's raison d'être, with the winking performances filling the place of any credible dramatic tension.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    Red is an insult to our memories and to our intelligence, an unfunny farce whose veteran cast is cashing a retirement check.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    Red can't stop itself from trying too hard to be hip. It's not that it doesn't have effective moments, it's that it doesn't have as many as it thinks it does. The film's inescapable air of glib self-satisfaction is not only largely unearned, it's downright irritating.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    It is possible to have a good time at RED, but it is not a very good movie.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    Red simultaneously tries too hard and not hard enough.

    Slate Full Review
  • Mark Keizer

    No one is expected to take any of this seriously, so Schwentke keeps things light: light on big laughs, light on unique action set pieces and light on any sense that these game but retired spies are too old for this crap.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Tim Robey

    The movie doesn’t have a funny bone in its body, clomping from one unoriginal set piece to the next with a head-scratching lack of urgency.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    Red State is as profane and anti-establishment as any of his other films, but the stakes are infinitely higher this time: This Kevin Smith movie has an astonishing body count.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Nathan Rabin

    Red State is gloriously unencumbered by fidelity to genre conventions, which lends it a thrilling element of unpredictability even when the action frequently grows shrill and heavy-handed.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Staff (Not credited)

    This is one of those movies that's "interesting" rather than ˜"good". Smith has so much solid material to deliver that it's a shame the package is so sloppily wrapped.

    Empire Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Red State is cleverly contrarian enough to get a rise out of almost any audience.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    It's a charming if conspicuously unfinished film, a half-riotous, half-idiotic send-up of the teen horror genre with a vaguely hip political twist.

    Salon.com Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    For all its boisterous profanity and splattery violence, the film is more of a weary sigh than a sputtering volley of indignation.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Alison Willmore

    Smith isn't up to doing anything other than setting up caricatures and then knocking them down.

    Movieline Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    This sloppily constructed horror-thriller lacks the satirical bite and action chops to skewer extreme-right-wing zealots with the gusto Smith clearly feels they deserve, instead evincing the verbal incontinence and slack tension that have long dogged the writer-director's work.

    Variety Full Review
  • Nick Schager

    Ugly characterizations and simplistic preachiness negate the terror in Red State - a film that eventually proves horrific in ways unintended by writer/director Kevin Smith.
