For whatever reason, audiences in 2010 loved seeing aged movie stars play action hero. Sylvester Stallone scored a huge hit with "The Expendables" a movie sold as a riff on dumb '80s action movies that was actually just a dumb '80s action movie. And two months later, "Red" scored big at the box office too, as audiences wanted to see Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Morgan Freeman and Helen Mirren kick some ass. In our opinion, that film was also a letdown, leaving us wondering how Robert Schwentke gained so much late summer hype based on early word from a film was tonally inconsistent and far too long for what it was. But hey, box office numbers speak and it's no surprise that a sequel is in the works.
