Critic Reviews for Operation Red Sea

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (2)

A blustery, noisy, polished, jingoistic hot mess based on the real life PLA evacuation of 500 Chinese nationals from Yemen in 2015.

Neither the story nor characters have any moral ambiguity or psychological shadings.

...it's a scourging spectacle of whiz-bang pyrotechnics, harrowing shoot-outs, breathless sniper battles, and awe-inspiring imagery...

Dec 27, 2018 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

A cataclysmic cross between the gung-ho jingoist action blowouts of Michael Bay and the heroic bloodshed melodramas of Hong Kong, the film's more-is-more aesthetic resulted in one of the most thrilling and punishing spectacles in recent world cinema.

Despite only being 3 months into 2018, I'm not afraid to call Operation Red Sea one of the best action films of the year.

For all its unabashed jingoism (including a South China Sea warning towards the end), the hellish displays of combat it includes hardly make for an advertisement to enlist.
