Red 2010 - Movie Review

Retired: Extremely Dangerous - REDRED
Retired: Extremely Dangerous - that's RED for you and the numerous young CIA agents who find this out the hard way. A spy drama, woven around the lives of few ex-CIA field agents, who have retired, but seems are not tired or worn out, neither they have forgotten the tricks of the trade, nor the instinct to survive in the deceitful world of espionage and counter-espionage. The movie, sure to rated in the Top Movies list is directed by the successful and energetic Robert Shwentke, who churns out a tale involving Bruce Willis, the ace star of Top Movies, as a retired CIA operator, who is called back for a top secret mission, which he has to undertake along with some of his ex-companions and field agents.

Frank Moses (Bruce Willis) is a bit of a romantic at heart and keeps himself amused by talking on telephone to Sarah, who is responsible for sending his pension. The talks culminate into a date and Frank is making plans with Sarah ( played by the stunning Mary-Louise Parker, a star of Top Movies) for fixing up the date, when his house is attacked by the Special Force Unit under the command of the young and enthusiastic agent William Cooper (played by Carl Urban, a Top Movies actor). Frank is able to escape from the commandos but his only thought is to first save Sarah and then find out about this murky business.

In his search for the truth behind this attack, he finally catches up with Cooper but he is unable to tell him anything about the reason behind all this. Cooper tells Frank that knowing the working of the agency he must understand that he is only told what concerns his work, no more no less than that. Digging further into the affair, Frank uncovers the murder of a reporter who was investigating into an operation involving Frank and who has left a list naming Frank and some of his former operator colleagues.

Frank remembers Joe (played by Morgan Freeman, the veteran star of Top Movies), than the psycho Marvin (played by John Malkovich, the top star of Top Movies), Ivan (Brian Cox) and finally the deadly but elegant Victoria (enacted by the beautiful and gorgeous Helen Mirren, the queen of Top Movies). But he fails to understand why anyone would come after them after so many years. The old comrade-in-arms come together to find an answer to this mystery and also to keep the young Cooper at bay.

Robert Shwentke is successful in creating a question and then intelligently answers it. The viewers come out of the theatres satisfied, as if they themselves solved the mystery. That's the winning formula of a successful Top Movies.

Clash of the Titans - Movie Review

Clash of the Titans
In their epic battle with the Titans, the three Olympians - Zeus, Poseidon and Hades were provided the help of Kraken, the Sea Lord, by Hades. After their victory, the landmass was taken over by Zeus, the waters were to be ruled by Poseidon and Hades was tricked by Zeus into ruling the underworld. Centuries later, Spyros, a fisherman finds a coffin on the sea front and finds an infant with a dead lady in it. The infant is raised by Spyros as his own son and comes to be known as Perseus, well portrayed by Sam Worthington, who is a regular in the top 10 movies list.

A grown up Perseus and his family see some soldiers from Argos destroying Zeus's, the character essayed by Liam Neeson, a veteran of many top rated movies, statue and declaring war on him. Hades, a role played to perfection by Ralph Fieness, the trusted man for the top movies, in the form of Harpies kills many of the soldiers and the rest flee with Perseus, whose family has been wiped out in the battle. King Kepheus and Queen Cassiopeia of Argos, a kingdom under God Zeus, compare their daughter Andromeda, the beauty well etched in Alexa Develos, the first choice for such roles by the top 10 movies makers, to the Goddess Aphrodite and declare they are Gods. Hades destroys the remaining Argos soldiers and ages Cassiopeia to her death. Recognizing Perseus to be the Demigod son of Zeus, he declares to Argos king to sacrifice Andromeda before Kraken or see Argos destroyed. Messenger God Hermes informs Zeus about Perseus and urges him to accept him but Zeus refuses.

Perseus is imprisoned by the Argos King for he refuses to fight the Gods. In the prison he learns about his real parents, Acrisius, well played by Jason Flemyng, actor of many top movies and Danae, the portrayal well adopted by Tine Steplefeldt, a superb choice of the top movies, from a woman named lo, a difficult role easily done by Gemma Arterton, preferred artist of many top rated movies. He also learns that Hades is responsible for his family's death and killing Kraken would destroy Hades. He decides to join Argos in their search of Stygian Witches. Acrisius who's living in disguise as Calibos is given super powers by Hades to prepare him to kill Persues so that Hades can take revenge of the betrayal during the clash with Titans. In the forest Persues finds the sacred Sword of Olympus and Pegasus, the flying horses. Calibos fails in his attack to kill Persues and flees after he loses a hand in battle. After the battle Persues's wounds are healed by Sheikh Suleiman, Lord of the Djinns who join Persues in the battle against Gods.

Stygian Witches tells them that head of Gorgon Medusa will turn Kraken to stone. Only Persues survives after beheading Medusa and finds that Calibos has killed lo. With the Olympus sword he kills Calibos, who is transformed back to human form. Riding on Pegasus, Persues heads for Argos where Hades is preparing for the sacrifice. Persues turns Kraken to stone and saves Andromeda, banishing Hades to Underworld. Zeus offers him a place on Olympus and Andromeda proposes him to be King of Argos but Zeus is interested in living on Earth.

The film, directed by Louis Leterrier is loosely based on the Greek Mythology character of Perseus. Adaptation by Leterrier has been astonishing and the presentation mind blowing. The viewers are teleported to another world and seem to be lost in it without realizing it. Leterrier has pumped lot of energy, imagination and certain madness into the movie. The imagination is visible, the energy can be felt but the madness simply engulfs you. Go ahead and get involved.

The Lone Ranger - Movie Review

The Lone Ranger
It's a modern twist on an old American west classic 1950s television show, The Lone Ranger. Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, fresh off 2011's Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, this new version features plenty of high-flying action and just enough comedy to make this a potential summer blockbuster.


Johnny Depp takes on the role of Tonto and delivers beautifully. Just as Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates series, Depp is serious but offers just enough light-hearted comedy to have fans rolling in their seats. The main character, John Reid a.k.a. the Lone Ranger, is played by up-and-comer Armie Hammer. Hammer is best known for playing the Winklevoss twins in The Social Network. Tom Wilkinson, who played Ben Franklin in John Adams, plays Latham Cole while William Fichtner is Butch Cavendish and Helena Bonham Carter plays Red Harrington.


The movie is Tonto's recollection of how John Reid came to be the Lone Ranger. John Reid returns home from the city vowing Texas to be his home. The film begins with Reid being deputized as a Texas Ranger joining his brother in bringing order to the Old West. Eight Texas Rangers, Reid included, are brutally attacked in the Texas wilderness. Only one of the Rangers survives, miraculously. He is found by a Native American spirit warrior, Tonto. Tonto will nurture Reid back to health and band together with him in a fight for justice. The two attempt to find those responsible for the murders of Reid's fellow Rangers and fight all sorts of injustice along the way. As a result of his exploits, the Lone Ranger becomes a legendary hero.
The Lone Ranger

The Lone Ranger will be one of the summer's best films. A great story that many are familiar with coupled with serious fast-paced action make this a must-see. Depp alone is reason to see the movie. He is oddly comical as "Keemosabe's" right-hand man. With his trusty horse, Silver, the Lone Ranger and Tonto battle bandits and duel on fast-moving trains. The action is relentless and Depp leaves fans yearning for a sequel. Early in the movie after Tonto finds Reid alive, Tonto is found talking to Silver. Later, he shares with Reid that Silver has told him that Reid is a great warrior who cannot be killed. In typical Depp fashion Tonto states, "Something very wrong with that horse." It's another eccentric character played perfectly for Depp and treat for summer movie fans across the country.
