I just watched Red today at a friends house and it got me thinking:
When was the last time Bruce Willis really, honestly tried to act? And when was the last time he was paired with a director who was able to get a good performance out of him?
I agree. I like Bruce Willis, but he just seems like all he does is play "Bruce Willis" now. The last movie, for me, that had him go outside his current box was The Sixth Sense
(although, to be fair, I haven't seen all of his movies over the past ten years).
