    RED

    Was anyone else really disappointed in this movie?
    I need a convo to get me through the last hour of work this week.

    Haven't seen it but have talked to 2 different people that saw it and enjoyed it. My wife and I thought it looked more like a rental movie

    Maybe I thought it would be more badass than it was. Was enjoyable, but disappointing.

    My wife and I enjoyed it a lot. A great popcorn movie. Action is over the top and the comedy runs from subtle to slapstick.

    I thought it was a fun movie, didn't take itself too seriously, I'd recommend it.

    Really wish I could pinpoint why.
    A good bit of time goes by before any of the characters, other than Bruce Willis, make an impact and it is limited for most of them.

    Re: RED

    It wasn't quite what I expected, but I really liked it.

    I concur with Geronimus though about it being more of a Bruce Willis movie than a Willis/Malkovich/Mirren/Freeman movie. The other 3 are layered in throughout the movie, whereas Bruce is front and center throughout.

    I thought Malkovich was great in it.

    He was "great" in Con Air as Cyrus the damn Virus. He was good in this.

    My husband was disappointed - he expected a lot more out of it. I thought it was pretty good, not something I'd buy but a good show.
