Red (2010)

This is a noteworthy movie. Ex-CIA agent Frank Moses (Bruce Willis) lives off of his pension income. After a few calls to the federal service line he finds an engaging woman (Mary-Louise Parker) who enjoys talking to him. One early morning he wakes up and realizes that agents have surrounded his house. He fights his way out and flies out to meet that woman. He is worried that with his phone line tapped, the CIA probably suspects her of being a spy. He takes her to meet a former colleague (John Malkovich). They learn that someone with high authority in the government is killing every agent who was involved in a covert operation in 1981.

John Malkovich and Helen Mirren have great roles in this film. The story is based on the three-issue comic book mini-series published in 2003 and 2004. In the film, the title is an acronym for: retired, extremely dangerous.
