Even though it's an action film, it errs on the side of having an academic style. [Full Review in Spanish]

Why make this rushed, sloppy and generic piece of Israeli triumphalism now? Who stands to gain?

If you want something to put on in the background while you clean, turn on Red Sea Diving Resort. The soundtrack will alert you to which scenes to watch.

It's an unfortunate white savior flick, for whatever that implies.
August 16, 2019
The Red Sea Diving Resort is built around a narrative with massive potential, but the movie never quite delivers, reducing it to a film that is merely adequate.
August 12, 2019
The Red Sea Diving Resort didn't need hamfisted, overly explanatory and preachy dialogue, to tell its tale. But that's what it has, which does a disservice to the very real people who lived and died this story.

The first act does work well but then the proposal is not satisfactorily developed. [Full Review in Spanish]
August 9, 2019
Sappy lines like, "We're all just refugees, aren't we?" jar against the clearly intended grave portents of today's ongoing global free-movement crisis.
August 6, 2019
Great true story becomes uninspired film; violence, language
August 5, 2019
Chooses star-vehicle bravura over the historical plight that really matters

The problem... is that it doesn't feel particularly interested in the political intricacies of the situation and it's definitely not interested in presenting the perspective of the Ethiopian refugees with any psychological subtlety.
August 5, 2019
A large part of the problem is the casting of Chris Evans as the leader of the Israeli spy ring that set up the hotel. He is most known for playing Captain America and seems not to have put aside his shield for this film.
August 2, 2019
The Red Sea Diving Resort is staggering in its utter lack of self-awareness, a movie attempting (and failing) to be very righteous in its discussion of refugee rights and displaced peoples.
August 2, 2019
It's a thriller that might work for some people and the premise is abounding in potential, but ultimately, The Red Sea Diving Resort just isn't worth the visit.
August 1, 2019
The focus turns the film into a quintessential white savior movie, making every person of color a prop to be saved rather than a developed character.
August 1, 2019
Black people get reduced to victims or despots who are at the mercy of paternalistic, good-hearted white Israelis who take ridiculous risks.
August 1, 2019
Raff, despite his noble intentions, paints his film, ever so lightly, with the brush of propaganda.
July 31, 2019
The problem stems from a general flatness of the characters and, despite the harrowing situations, storytelling.
July 31, 2019
"Red Sea" has genuine-seeming concern for the refugees it depicts, but doesn't memorably capture the impressive true tale.
July 31, 2019
"The Red Sea Diving Resort" is "inspired by true events," we're told early on, but it can't help but come off like a cheesy movie.
