Red Notice (2021)



Dwayne Johnson

Ryan Reynolds

Gal Gadot


Directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber


I give Red Notice one thing, by taking the three of one of the coolest actors, it had me stuck and I saw this movie from start to finish. Did not see the first twist coming between the actors, the second one (if you can call that a twist) was expected. The ending of the movie was so dumb. I have seen better lay-ups for a part two than this crap package.

The movie was a five out of ten from the start. You will not believe it can get any shittier, then the first twist dropped between two of the characters and everything went horribly wrong from then on. The good thing about this is, when it starts to crash from its mediocre standpoint, you are already like ten minutes to the end, so you do not have long to endure.

The long and short of this is that Red Notice is a very nonsense film, that plays on the charisma of the actors. I have to be honest I have never been so keen to see Gal Gadot have more screentime as I did watching this film. There was just too much Ryan Reynolds and Dwyane Johnson that it needed her presence to just calm the flow. Yes, a sentence I never thought I would ever say, too much Ryan Reynolds.

The movie plot is not hard to put together, there is an Egyptian guy who is willing to pay a huge sum of money to anyone who can bring him the three gem eggs of Cleopatra. The international thief The Bishop (Gal Gadot) is wanted by everyone for her crimes, but second to her on the ranking is the thief Nolan (Ryan Reynolds). Nolan is going to go after one of the eggs in Italy and an American FBI agent Hartley (Dwayne Johnson) was being tipped by The Bishop to catch him. Hartley with the help of the Italian police were able to apprehend Nolan, but The Bishop double crosses Hartley and they both end up in prison together.

Turns out The Bishop was also behind this arrangement and visited the couple and asked them to work with her, (specifically Nolan who only knows the whereabouts of the third egg). If they agree she will help Harley get his name cleared and give Nolan a cut. They turned her down and broke out of prison and decided to work together in a race to get the eggs before The Bishop does.

Like I said the movie has all the substance to make a good film but lacked the story and good directing to achieve that. The movie is written and directed poorly by Rawson Marshall Thurber.

When the three are together is the only time the movie seem to have any sort of entertainment package installed for you. You can catch this movie on Netflix.
