John Malkovich steals the show with maybe the performance of his career. Edward Bailey might know where the weapon is. As the young er crew, Karl Urban and Mary-Louise Parker are in it and they both play well. I couldn't help but feel skeptical. Great all around supporting cast. This subplot adds little and distracts from the main picture. Red Army is a feature documentary about the Soviet Union and the most successful dynasty in sports history: the Red Army hockey team.
When I first saw the trailer for The Expendables, I was already thinking of the interesting and funny relationship between the characters played by those action icons. From 'Die Hard' to 'Sin City', Bruce Willis' good-guy-having-a-bad-day routine has evolved little, but it does not need to be fixed. I never had so many characters in a single movie that I highly enjoyed equally. When Bruce Willis plays his indestructible yet on the surface everyday guy he is right where the audience loves him. The mash-up is Jason Bourne meets The Expendables via, luckily for us, just a pinch of Ocean's Eleven.
That team, if not on the surface a formidable threat, is pure cinematic gold as it consists of excellent performances by Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich, and Helen Mirren. It's certainly not an original story, mashing together ideas that we've seen before in the Bourne series, The Expendibles and The Losers. There is a glimpse at pervy-old-man behaviour which could have been funny and a mention of health problems which could have been touching but these are quickly forgotten. Richard Dreyfus turns in a solid performance as a spoiled smart-ass uber-wealthy and powerful arms dealer who pulls strings behind the scenes. Movies are expensive now and not all of them are worth seeing in theatre but this one is. Soon the dangerous South Korean Han joins the group expecting to retrieve the.
People actually took cover, helped each other and synchronized their moves. At this point I saw the project in a different light.

So it had the ridiculously packed action and at times it looked and sounded like Ocean's Eleven, who cares? But what really makes this film worth seeing in theatres with an audience is John Malkovich! Bottom line: I don't know, maybe because the director is unseasoned in the ways of Hollywood the movie turned out to be so good. Every name above plays an equal part in the film, which is amazing. They are not even action heroes, maybe that did it, but they do a great job. This movie gets a 7.
Throughout the film he maintains a carefree poker-face, as though he's done this so many times over the years that he can afford to be relaxed. Or maybe it was the fun of it. With the exception of Willis, the cast is made up of actors who have no business waving guns around. Or maybe it was the cast. The lines were funny and somewhat complex and all the people on the set were clearly having fun doing what they loved. It is almost impossible not to like this film because of the wonderfully entertaining supporting cast. Bruce Willis, Mary-Louise Parker, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich, Helen Mirren, Brian Cox, and Karl Urban all excel, as would be expected.
Synopsis Red Army is a feature documentary about the Soviet Union and the most successful dynasty in sports history: the Red Army hockey team. The trio travels to Paris and teams-up with the Russian Katja to track down the former Russian Agent 'The Frog' to get more information about the operation. John Malkovich is particularly entertaining in his performance as a mentally questionable conspiracy theorist who refuses to retire peacefully. Helen Mirren was an inspired choice, as if making up for the predictability of Willis' casting. They rescue Bailey and find that the nuclear device is hidden in the Kremlin.
Told from the perspective of its captain Slava Fetisov, the story portrays his transformation from national hero to political enemy. Deeper characterisation, however, only serves to show how abnormal he really is, and it is a delight to see him in action. Out of the blue, Marvin Boggs meets Frank in the supermarket and tells that Wikileaks has released the information that they had participated and know the whereabouts of the Nightshade, a portable nuclear weapon that was smuggled in pieces and hidden in Russia. Now, I don't know who's fault it is, but relative to The Expandables, I almost haven't heard of Red before its release. However, it was exactly what I was looking for.
And, Ernest Borgnine has a cameo role which is memorable. It is a pity, because the wasted effort could have been more effectively put into making the story tighter, or on giving Morgan Freeman more screen time. There is something about the juxtaposition of her gran-like demeanour with exaggerated violence that makes her very funny and extremely watchable. It's definitely a Friday night flick, something that is easily enjoyed. He informed us that the game is going to contain more than one playable character and feature a much bigger open world than the last Red Dead title. Every time he came on screen the whole theatre would be dying with laughter. Fraghero received an email from a reader who wishes to remain anonymous claiming that the game has been in development for over 4 years and is in fact called Red Dead Redemption 2 : Legends Of The West.
This time he brings with him an air of self-parody. It is to be noted that Fraghero cannot independently verify any of this information and all of it should be taken with a grain of salt. Helen Miran firing a Rambo sized gun is worth the admission alone. Clearly this was going to be a film where story and sense came second to cast and chemistry. But then I noticed the cast list and realised that this is meant to be a comedy. The first 10 minutes, which show him adjusting to retirement and aimlessly wandering around the house in his dressing gown, are reminiscent of Carl Fredricksen's first appearance as an old man in 'Up'.
