"Retired, Extremely Dangerous," is how the file reads on retired CIA agent Frank (Bruce Willis), who finds himself pulled back into the game in the new action comedy 'Red,' which opens Friday.

Soon, he's reteaming with his old CIA chums (like 73-year-old Morgan Freeman) and this gang of "senior citizens" ably shows those young punks how it's done. For those of you who get a kick out of seeing Oscar winner Helen Mirren (who turned 65 this year) tote firearms and take out an armed guard with her purse, this list of age-defying ass-kickers is for you.

From ages 61 to ... nearly a thousand(!), here are some of cinema's most impressive "over-the-hill" badasses. (Willis, awesome action hero though he is, is a too-young-for-this-list 55.)
