All star action thriller movies

2010-11-19 00:00

AN all-star cast has been assembled for the action thriller, Red, which opens in Pietermaritzburg this weekend.

Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Parker, Richard Dreyfuss and Ernest Borgnine are just some of those appearing in the film directed by Robert Schwentke.

Red tells the story of Frank Moses, a former black-ops CIA agent, who is now living a quiet life. That is, until the day a hi-tech assassin shows up intent on killing him.

With his secret identity compromised and his love interest in danger, Frank must reassemble his old team to figure out who is out to get them.

Also opening in the city this weekend is the Hindi romance, Guzaarish, directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and starring Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai.

The film tells the story of accomplished magician Ethan Mascarenhas (Roshan), who is severely injured when one of his magical tricks goes wrong, turning him into a paraplegic. Despite being confined to a wheelchair, Ethan becomes a radio DJ and spreads hope and laughter through his irrepressible wit and humour.

Rai plays Sofia D’Souza, the woman who has nursed and loved him for 12 years. Their relationship is, however, challenged when Ethan files an appeal to the court for mercy killing.
