this so ridiculously over the top and campy

Okay the RED movies are so fucking great bc they’re these over-the-top ridiculous movies but they’ve got Bruce Willis and Karl Urban playing the stoic action hero trope complete straight, John Malkovich doing his John Malkovich-thing… and then there’s Helen Mirren, who somehow manages to both pull off the campy action movie and straight up play her scenes like a Shakespearean tragedy all while looking bomb as fuck. 

Also, she does this.
