Bruce Willis certainly is no stranger to action tales, but much of the fun of this comic-book adaptation is in seeing some other veteran performers - namely, Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman and John Malkovich - play tough. All of the performers play ex- CIA operatives who reunite to defend themselves against assassins sent to make sure they never reveal secrets from their spying days.
Mary-Louise Parker ("Weeds") plays a former Willis flame reluctantly drawn into the mayhem. Richard Dreyfuss, Ernest Borgnine, Julian McMahon ( "Nip/Tuck"), James Remar, Brian Cox and Karl Urban also appear. DVD extras: "making-of" documentary; audio commentary by ex-CIA agent Robert Baer; deleted and extended scenes. *** (PG-13: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray)
