    A rousing adventure with almost too many twists for its own good. Seriously, I lost count, and a strong argument could be made that the movie could have ended before it's biggest twist of all, but then we wouldn't have that juicy sequel bait studios love. Regardless, as abrasive as the twists are and blatant as the tropes are, the film is just godamn fun. An old fashioned odd couple treasure hunt heist film with three extremely likable leads. It's funny, has solid action, and never takes itself too seriously. Not a masterpiece, but a very fun time.

    I'm not sure what these high profile, talented actors were offered to involve themselves in such a mediocre film. Every plot point and twist seems to exist just to inject some sort of excitement into an increasingly boring narrative. There's no craftsmanship, half-assed foreshadowing, everything is just beat after beat of nonsensical thieving hijinks compounded on uninspired action set pieces. Red Notice is everything wrong with frivolous high budget action films that have little to no interest in making something remotely intelligent.

    Just some good dumb fun.

    It has been decades since films were released and garnered attention simply due to who was in them. Yes, every now and then a film comes out that nobody has heard of and ends up making money because of the stars, but it seems so few and far between these days. Netflix's Red Notice is the prime example of a generic action-comedy that's clearly banking on its leading performers. I'm a big fan of Dwayne Johnson, Ryan Reynolds, and Gal Gadot has really grown on me as an actress too but based solely on the premise, I pretty much knew what to expect with this movie, and I was right. There is some fun to be had with Red Notice, but I'll probably forget I watched it a few months from now.  Working for the BAU, detective John Hartley (Dwayne Johnson)is in pursuit of the most wanted art thief in the world, Nolan Booth (Ryan Reynolds). After Booth is captured and Hartley is double-crossed and ends up in prison with him, they eventually begin to work together to take down an even bigger thief in "The Bishop" (Gal Gadot). After a certain point, this film just started writing itself. I found myself rolling my eyes at the dumb stunts they were pulling off and all of the one-liners that you would expect from all of them. Yes, this cast has a lot of charisma with each other, but it wasn't enough to make it stand out from any other time I've ever seen them before.  Red Notice is a film that honestly has about an hour of story to tell, but the film really lets these performers do their thing, a lot. There were multiple times where scenes drag on and I firmly believe it was all improv. This was both equally enjoyable and annoying. I laughed consistently throughout the movie, but also while scratching my head and cringing. It was almost a frustrating watch at times, even though I still fall on the positive side of the movie overall. Director Rawson Marshall Thurber, who also wrote the film, has always made films that ride the line of being both ridiculous and enjoyable, for the most part. I have a blast watching Dodgeball and We're the Millers and I've even enjoyed his work with Johnson on other projects like Central Intelligence or Skyscraper, but his films never take the extra step. Red Notice is by far his most ambitious film to date, I just think it's also the most he has ever had faith in his performers to run with the material however they like. As I said, I enjoyed myself, it's just riddled with soo many issues/inconsistencies.  In the end, Red Notice is one of the biggest films Netflix has ever released as an original film and while I'm all for them continuing to do big-budget movies like this, I also feel like they just see a big name and say yes to a project. This is why there are very few Netflix original films that end up being great. For those of you who like action, comedy, or any of these performers in general, I recommend checking out Red Notice but also try to go in knowing it's nothing special and you'll probably have a disposable good time as I did. There are far better films currently out, but if you open Netflix and start streaming this one, I'm sure you'll at least find some mild enjoyment in certain scenes at the very least. Red Notice is now streaming on Netflix.
