R.etired E.xtremely D.angerous

I was itching to go away. I want to keep my mind off of things I should not be thinking when it does not bother thinking about me at all. I was splitting my mind on going or staying at home. Just waiting for me to get sleepy until it is time to wake up and get ready for work. But I made up my mind, with meager money in my light-weight wallet., I decided to go.

I left early and found myself in Glorietta. At home I know I want to watch a movie and my plan B would be having a food trip. I was really having a big appetite these passed few days anyway. But then again I am a movie buff so I ended up on the line at the ticket booth. I honestly don't have a movie in mind that I would like to watch. So I looked at the screen for the movie line up and see the schedules. I chose the one that will just give me enough time not to be late at work. I choose the shortest title on the line up: RED.

I already got to watched the trailer of this movie. It circles about spies and CIAs and these topics had their magnets on me. Aside from the junk food I had I can't resist on munching cheeseburgers and fries on a movie like this. I think I'm loving Glorietta cinemas but Shang Cineplex is still my number one.

The movie started with Frank Moses (Bruce Willis) living a boring life as a retired man whose only social life is talking to Sarah (Mary Louise Parker) on the phone about his monthly pension. He tore those checks
being sent on the mail just to
have the reason to take to his lady love on the phone. (Aww, isn't that sweet?). So the action starts as one night armed men literally bombarded bullets that brought his house down. But a RED like him escape without bruises. He came in search of his lady love so he can protect her for he knows he will go after her. Then as they search for answers why would someone want them dead the old gang got together again. Moses came in first with his old pal Joe Matheson (Morgan Freeman) whose already 80-years old has stage 4 liver cancer and whose leisure in life is looking at those tight asses of her nurses at the nursing home. Then there was Marvin Boggs (John Malkovich) a paranoid but someone you can count on. ( Love his line, "Old man my ass!"). And there was the ravishing Victoria (Helen Mirren) who tends her rose gar
den in her posh villa while killing people on the side just for the thrill. "You cannot just turn off the switch and flip over" she says about totally living a normal life and forgetting her life as a spy.

And so they brought the band back together. So follows the high-packed action scenes and explosive extravagance here and there. I just so love Helen Mirren's character on this movie. The guys were even scared to visit her for they fear that she would just shoot them. And admit it guys, don't you just find it sexy when a woman shoots high-powered guns with poise and calmness. No one does this scene so perfect like Helen Mirren did. (And so as Jennifer Garner, Angelina Jolie, and the list goes on..) And by the way she says, "I kill people, dear" like it is just a normal day to day activity..=)
