In “Red”, Frank Moses (Bruce Willis) is no stranger to danger but when he retires, he just wants a nice, normal life. When a six-man assassination team breaks into his house and tries to kill him, he has to get his old team back in the game to find his attackers before they kill him.
Frank realizes the people trying to kill him have bugged his phone. Since retiring, he has gotten lonely and torn up his pension checks to have an excuse to call the office, saying they have never arrived. When he realizes his phone has been tapped, he races to go save the customer service representative from possible danger. Sarah (Mary-Louise Parker) plays the customer service rep. Frank Moses has to kidnap her to save her life when she doesn’t believe her life is in danger. With his old team helping and Sarah bound in duct tape, Moses follows the clues to save his life and hers. The movie was quietly released in 2010 and has received high ratings since then.
The plot expands into the story a reporter was working on before he is killed. The trail of clues take the team into New Orleans as they make their way through assassins and classified secrets. The movie ends with Frank Moses returning a favor to an old friend. It leaves Moses and Marvin (John Malkovich) running for their lives. Marvin is wearing a dress as he sits in the getaway vehicle that Moses is pushing- a wheel barrel.
Now, “Red 2” has been set for release in July 2013. It stars Bruce Willis as Frank Moses, Mary-Louise Parker as Sarah and John Malkovich as Marvin. Together, they fight powerful adversaries and high standing officials in government to stop a nuclear weapon from falling into enemy hands.
