Netflix's pricey heist thriller ‘RED NOTICE’, starring The Rock, Gal Gadot and Ryan Reynolds - Now Streaming

from https://deadline.com/2021/07/dwayne-joh ... 234788528/

Finally, we have drop date for Netflix’s mega action Rawson Marshall Thurber-directed feature Red Notice and it’s Nov. 12, around the world.

Dwayne Johnson just made the news official across his social media. In the movie, an Interpol-issued Red Notice goes out. That’s a global alert to hunt and capture the world’s most wanted. Johnson stars as the FBI’s top profiler and Wonder Woman‘s Gal Gadot and Deadpool‘s Ryan Reynolds as two rival criminals who are all brought together for a daring heist.

As Deadline’s Mike Fleming first reported, Red Notice is arguably the biggest feature commitment by the streaming giant at $130M. Universal and Legendary originally landed the Johnson project in a multi-studio auction, with the star getting his $20M payday against breakeven gross. However, after Uni ran the numbers, they deemed it too expensive. That’s when Netflix took over. Instead of breakeven gross against upfront salaries dished out by studios in success, Netflix pays upfront salaries and buys out backend.

How does Netflix’s movie chief Scott Stuber measure success? For bigger films with budgets north of $200 million like Dwayne Johnson, Gal Gadot & Ryan Reynolds’ upcoming action movie Red Notice, he targets an audience of more than 70 million viewers.

Thought this was based on the book “Red Notice” by Bill Browder which was really good, but no relation. Will still try to watch this. :)

Hmm... I'm not optimistic. The teaser does not impress.

However, even if it gets mediocre reviews, I may watch it anyway since it's "free" on Netflix.

Reynolds is smirking on the YT landing page.
Rock is smirking in the opposite direction.
I can't tell if Gal is smirking or a neutral expression between the multimillion dollar smirks.

‘Red Notice’ is a Proof That Cinema FPV Conquered Netflix
https://ymcinema.com/2021/09/13/red-not ... d-netflix/

"The film was shot on a custom-made RED Ranger Monstro paired with Panavision Ultra Panatar Lenses, which is nice. However, more importantly, a lot of FPV shots were revealed. Those were executed with the RED’s action camera, the Komodo. This is the first film that utilized extensively the ‘cinema FPV’ approach."

This is my brief review... in short and no spoilers.

First, a brief intro / exposition (narrator voice), then the action starts pretty quickly, moving at a really good pace. That's good for an action movie. This is why they needed such a large budget.

Then, Reynolds does his thing. Pretty much he is doing lines and jokes that Deadpool would do. Everybody loves this guy. So it's all cool. He steals the show, I don't think The Rock can keep up.

But then, it turns to be entertaining but not a great movie.

Definitely you should watch it if you have Netflix. But if I didn't had it, I would not get it just because this movie.... you know what I mean?

I was hoping that she would have gotten more screen time...

"Surprisingly, Gadot doesn’t get much screen time... Gadot’s character, in the wider picture, makes a lot of important decisions that propel the story forward but is more of a background force until the second half"

Watched the movie tonight and while the production was very good the script was generic and uninspiring.

Ryan Reynolds really does need to start adding some depth to his on screen portrayals, his over done one liners are well past there due date and come off as rehearsed and template responses. What was once new and excited is grimacing in this movie, surely he can add some depth to a character.

The Rock seems to have beefed up and doesnt look mobile at all, in an action movie like this one he didn't shine which is interesting as his personality generally shines on screen.

Overall a time waster but nothing more which is a shame. Netflix can shove a ton of money and get great actors, producers and directors however at times script wise it just follows a uninspired template and comes out flat. This movie is that....a bit been there and done that....and flat.

So give it a watch, doubt you will give it anything but an 5.5 to 6 out of 10 which is a disappointment considering the budget and talent.

I like the Rock and Reynolds, didn't like the actress and thought the entire thing was completely predictable. Basically, it sucked.
