"The plot for this movie is actually quite good, a microbiochemical weapon accidently created and released on the world is captured and is being brought back from Russia, but the Russians are trying to recapture it and release it on the major cities of the world and it is up to our "hero" to stop them before it happens. What ruins this great movie is the very bad acting. When asked if he knew about Agent Red, Dolph's character said it best, "Sounds like a bad action movie," and it is. From LT. Christian being seriously out of uniform to the underlying "love story", this movie just reeks. The only good thing I saw in this movie was Randolph Mantooth. His small part made up for the movie in my opinion. So unless you're a big Mantooth fan, this movie is a waste of money."

"This movie is so bad, it barely deserves mention. However, I am a big DL fan, and I am writing this in the hope that Dolph will not abandon his fans---he may be making movies like this just for the $$, but, I believe, he is also doing irreparable damage to his career."
Just when you think Dolph can't get sink any lower..........

"I will be honest I like Dolph Lundgren.........a look at his filmography you see B.movie classics such as "The Punisher",Universal Soldier" and "Blackjack" Dolph has been going trough a slump.........Storm Catcher and the startlingly routine Jill The Ripper and the awful Minion(AKA Fallen Knight) but with Agent Red Dolph Lundgren hits rock bottom. Agent Red first of all steals it's music from Predator 2......and it's plot from Counter Measures,Oh I'm not finished yet. It steals footage from Storm Catcher!!!!!!!!! The scene where Jon Penner steals the air craft while posing as Dolph Lundgren..........Now Penner is 5'11 Dolph Lundgren is 6'5 for goodness sake! yet they try to pass it off as Dolph Lundgren as the soldier stealing the aircraft for part of a mission.....This scene made me wanna throw up but I hung in there.....It turns out more footage is stolen.......I swear I saw footage from Iron Eagle and Iron Eagle II.......I saw footage from Crimson Tide and I saw footage from Counter Measures........What the heck was Dolph thinking when he signed for this junk? I have no idea. When I was a teen (When Showdown In Little Tokyo came out) I thought Dolph Lundgren couldn't sink lower then Showdown In Little Tokyo,Then when I saw The Minion I was almost sure Dolph couldn't do worse........Well I pray he can't do any worse because Agent Red is one of the worst movies I have ever seen in my life..........This is coming from a guy who likes Don The Dragon Wilson. Bottomline:On Agent Red's cover it says "Once exposed you cannot survive" Take this as a warning."
ANOTHER VIRAL THREAT

"AGENT RED is yet another in a long line of killer virus movies. For a low budget thriller, this isn't too bad, though. Dolph Lundgren, never one accused of acting, is even stiffer than usual, but in all actuality, he's not in the movie as much as one would think. Hiding in cameo roles are Stephen Macht and Steve Franken; Meilani Paul and Natalie Radford are the femme fatales, and a nasty Russian villain played by Alexander something or other does a fairly decent job. There are some tense moments and Agent Red is a real nasty virus. Don't miss former EMERGENCY star Randolph Mantooth in a role as the admiral of a naval carrier. "
Not as bad as people make out!

"Ok,a new Dolph film.Lets all forget what hideous memories that line produces in our minds!No,don't think about the minion,or about the last patrol,this is an entirely different kind of Dolph film...a good one!For Dolph gone are the days of Universal soldier,Masters of the Universe and the Punisher,he has been reduced to B movie hell,until now that is.
This film isn't too bad!The effects are extremely good,the plot is passable and Dolphs acting isnt too bad either.What really lets this film down are the other cast members!All too often Dolph s let down by lousy no name actors chewing the scenery.This film could have been far better,it could also have been far worse!If you're a Dolph fan,buy this film now!If you're not,get an early night!"
