Moldova Sucks!!!!

To get the title reference go see RED.

RED stands for Retired and Extremely Dangerous. Which nicely sums up Frank Moses played by Bruce Willis. Though when we first meet Frank, he is this old man in a wife-beater t-shirt waking up at 6am and sloshing down ten pills. The highlight of his day comes when he calls his retirement case officer to talk about his retirement check not arriving, a woman named Sarah Ross trapped in cubicle hell who dreams of visiting Chile and Frank's answer to when he was there was "It was dark." Franks thinks there is a chance of romance with Sarah so he finds himself reading the same bodice ripping romance novels she is reading.

Then one morning at 3:32am Frank has to come out of retirement when a six man assassination squad literally shoot his house apart. Needless to say Frank makes it out alive and sets out to find out who is trying to kill him. Along the way he kidnaps Sarah to save her and proceeds to collect his old comrades - Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich, and Helen Mirren. By the time these retired pros are done ferreting out the truth, many bullets have been fired with many explosions and justice amply served.

It was real nice to see Ernest Borgnine get a nice cameo role as the chief librarian of the CIA's secret files. And fitting since Borgnine had played a Soviet spy in the classic spy movie Ice Station Zebra. Helen Mirren as Victoria was smashing, a genteel lady who packs an MP-5SD in a bouquet of yellow roses. It was a fun movie.

Hello. I have a little "something" about yout post:)
U should consider another title for it...because some people from Moldova will be mad when they'll see this offense.:)
U see, if the director of this movie was very stupid inserting in the end of the movie(good one, in my opinion) that line, you don't have to do it too. It's hard to belive that line was the only thing that u saw interesting in RED, therefore I recommand you to change it.
Good day, a guy from easter Europe (where Moldova is...try google it :D, it doesn't sucks) :)!

Girl, you have a rather stupid method of attracting attention. This is a fictional movie and the end is purely with the entertaining purpose in mind. You don't even know where Moldova is. I live in Moldova and it isn't anything like in the move. That being said, the movie is very well made and hilarious.

The reason why I chose that line was because it was so outrageous which made it so funny as they went bouncing down that field in the wheel-barrow. I guess I should have put a disclaimer as I do not think Moldova stinks. Mea culpa.

Sorry for not visiting Moldova, but my business in Europe has been centered in Germany and Italy. So ciao amicas.

Anna, to be honest, I don't think you are capable of running a business in any part of the world. But who cares...

I am fromMoldova. I was kinda, shocked, at the end of the movie when i heard about moldova, haha all the movie has nothing to do with my country. maybe they refered to transnistria, which is still in moldova, but controlled by the russian forces. ah yes, and you better change the title, cause i don't think you'd like to hear that your blog sucks badly, so as you do, haha. just a joke, dont get mad ;)
