Title: Red

Year Of Release: 2010

"Red" starring Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman and Helen Mirren, is loosely based on the comic book of the same name. The film is about a group of retired CIA agents, classified as "Red" which stands for "Retired Extremely Dangerous" being killed in a strange plot. The remaining agents begin investigating who is behind the plot.

Spoiler Alert: Lo and behold, the agents find out the Vice President Of The United States, ordered their deaths to permanently shut them up, regarding human rights abuses and war crimes committed in Guatemala, by the U.S. government. As a result, they kidnap and try to assassinate the Vice President of the United States. 

I did not like this movie for a number of reasons. It is unoriginal, very violent, profane and based on a very bad premise. It simply goes too far. It is also blatantly absorbed in Hollywood's weird obsession with "mind control," illegal wiretapping, harassment and murder, things tinseltown private investigators specialize in. The film comes right out and says it.
