A duo to be excited about!

Wow, I loved these two together on screen! I’m a huge fan of both but you would have thought they had been starring in films together for years based on their chemistry and rapport. The unlikely friendship/partnership was fantastic. I can’t get enough of these two!

Really funny!

I didn’t really know what to expect with this one, but I went into it hoping for the best and it delivered in the best way possible! This movie was so much fun. I was smiling the entire time and there were some moments that had me in tears from laughing so hard. It was so refreshing to just sit back and truly enjoy a movie.

The Cons:

I wanted a little more screen time for supporting characters…

The cast was really great in this one and I guess I just wanted a little bit more screen time for some of the supporting characters. This isn’t a major con but since I was having so much fun, I wanted it to continue!

So am I in or out?

Spoiler-Free Review of “Red Notice” on Netflix: Indiana Jones Rip-Off is Actually a lot of Fun

**This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!**

“What are we stealing?”

Red Notice premiered on November 12th 2021 on Netflix. The action-comedy film stars Dwayne Johnson, Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot. It runs for just under two hours.

An Interpol agent attempts to catch the world’s most notorious art thief, but quickly realizes this task is far from easy…

Here is the trailer:

Red Notice is basically Indiana Jones meets National Treasure in a lot of ways, but it does have a great cast and a lot of flashy effects to hold your attention. Is it worthy of YOUR next watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Fun banter between the cast.

I really liked the dynamic between all three characters in this film. I don’t think that any of the actors really strayed from their comfort zone, but that’s okay. The film was a lot of fun because of this dynamic and I can’t say enough good things about Gal Gadot’s wardrobe.

I’d love to raid her closet!

I was worried that this film would miss the mark in the humor department, but I was pleasantly surprised by how much I was actually laughing. The humor worked for me, which was something I struggled with when I tried to connect with Netflix’s Army of Thieves.

An entertaining heist.

Even though this film seemed like a rip-off of Indiana Jones, National Treasure and even Jungle Cruise in a lot of ways, it still had an interesting and fun heist at its core, which kept me invested in the movie.

The Cons:

I didn’t need all of the flashy effects…

It’s obvious that a lot of money went into these effects, but I honestly didn’t need them. The best part of the movie was the banter between the characters and the mystery behind the heist. Sure, there were some fun action sequences that kept up the pace, but the effects just felt cheesy and overdone.

Predictable.

I’ve seen this type of movie before and while I enjoyed it, it didn’t really do anything that original. It does throw a few curve balls our way (which I appreciated), but don’t expect to watch anything truly extraordinary here.

It was still entertaining though…

So am I in or out?

I’m in!

Even though I knew what to expect with this movie, I had a blast watching it. It was entertaining and actually really funny. I loved the dynamic between the characters and thoroughly enjoyed my watch.

If you’re looking for a quick comedy-action film to enjoy, you’re in the right place!
