Special Edition Podcast
Dame Helen Mirren with a giant sniper rifle.
I don't care that she's 65, that's freakin' hot.
The big screen adaptation of the 2003 DC Comics mini-series from Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner about retired spies who are targeted for death by the CIA has finally hit the big screen!
To me the most impressive thing about this film is that Bruce Willis' agent keeps finding ways to put a gun in his hand and have him shoot people in a believable story. He's not even nearly the oldest person in the cast! Kudos to you, Richard Lovett!
I'll be completely honest with you fine people and say that while I remember really enjoying Red when it came out, I have very little recollection of the comic itself. I remember a lot of shooting. The fact that I can't remember much about the series is not really relevant, I don't think, and in fact it's probably a benefit in this instance. Let's face it, the real draw for this movie is watching a bunch of older actors that we like shooting big guns and acting really tough. Who doesn't love that?
The iFanboy staff will be going to see this one as soon as possible so we can bring you a Special Edition Podcast this Sunday.
Are you going to see it? Of course you are! So let's talk about it!
If you haven't seen the movie yet be forewarned – there be SPOILERS ahoy! So don't scroll down any further if you are sensitive to that kind of thing.
