    Netflix’s Star-Studded “Red Notice” is a Mix of Popular Action Movies – Review

    Published on

    Red Notice is exactly what we expected it to be

    Netflix‘s highly anticipated action-comedy Red Notice is finally out, and it has delivered whatever we expected after we watched the trailer. Action? Check. Comedy? Check. Things we have already seen in countless other action-adventure movies? Check.

    The movie has what it takes to sell well, but then, what is Red Notice is Lacking as many found!

    The story

    Red Notice
    Netflix

    The movie is about finding three ornate eggs that was supposedly gifted to Cleopatra by Mark Antony on their wedding day. Two were recovered, but the third was said to be only a rumor. One egg is located in Rome, and it seemed to have caught the eye of the black market. This leads FBI special profiler John Hartley (Dwayne Johnson) to the location, only to find it was stolen by famed artist Nolan Booth (Ryan Reynolds).

    Then begins the cat and mouse game between the two, which eventually leads them to Sarah Black (Gal Gadot), who is an art thief who always wants to be one step ahead of Hartley and Booth. She’s also looking for the eggs and wants to sell it for $300 million a pop to a buyer.

    We get to see numerous locations with loads of action and jokes, until it gets quite tiring. Most of the action and car chases give us a first-person look, similar to video games, but it doesn’t make it any more exciting. Also, it’s hard to believe that either Reynolds or Gadot can hold their own against someone like Johnson. Oh, and there’s no real villain in the film. You don’t get a feeling of danger anywhere, but that might just be the objective of every heist comedy.

    The conclusion

    If the movie focused more on the storytelling than the action, it could’ve done a much more better job. For now, Red Notice is very like the numerous action-comedy movies we have seen over the years, with nothing new to offer.
