    I saw "RED"...and i could have sworn his character dies(even before the movie's end)? Then again, if this is a sequel, i guess it's no more preposterous that his character could have only pretended to die than the premise of over-the-hill ex-C.I.A operatives being forced out of retirement.

    Just saw this movie for the first time a month or so ago, thanks to a free HBO trial wknd given by DirecTV. :-) I dug it. I'd mess w/the sequel.
