Netflix's Red Notice is unapologetically funny (with most of Ryan Reynolds’ smart-alecky, Deadpool-esque one-liners thrown in the direction of one Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson), peppered with plenty of slick action scenes you’ve probably seen in major globetrotting cop-and-robber-type movies.
But is it a “Boooooo..” or a “Boooooomz!” for Red Notice? Let's take a deeper dive into it and also hear from the cast themselves.
Written and directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber, and part-produced by Johnson (this is the third Thurber and Johnson film collaboration, after 2016's Central Intelligence and 2018's Skyscraper), Red Notice stars Johnson as John Hartley, an FBI agent who reluctantly teams up with a renowned and notorious art thief Nolan Booth (Reynolds) in order to catch mysterious criminal Sarah Black aka ‘The Bishop’ (Gal Gadot).
The premise is simple: mismatched cop-thief pair Hartley and Booth attempt to hunt and capture the world’s most wanted, ‘The Bishop’. Except, she’s always two steps ahead of them. Cue the cliché sequences.
If anything, Red Notice boasts immense star power (like we said, a former professional wrestler, a DC superhero, and a Marvel superhero) and Gadot is ridiculously good looking, kicking ass in a slinky red evening gown and all that jazz.
