See Red

Red, starring Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich, Mary Louise Parker, and Helen MirrenI took some time off Friday to go see a movie for the first time in what felt like forever. I preface this review with that statement because it is possible that this film garners such great love from me by virtue of timing. I needed a movie, this one was a perfect fit, therefore I believe it to be a perfect film.

You've been warned.

Still, I loved it. This film brandished star power to shame The Expendables, and blended it with the silly, over-the-top action of The A-Team. It was a perfect mix of my favorite flavors of awesome. Okay, the first five minutes were a little slow, but they just made the next hundred and eleven minutes all the better.

It comes in at #5 for me this year
