RED NOTICE (English) - The multiple heists plot is the only saving grace of this average action comedy. (Movie Notes by Bobby Sing).

A big-budget American action-comedy, Red Notice has the world’s greatest art thieves looking for the three jewelled eggs that were gifted to Cleopatra two thousand years ago. Two of the eggs were found by the farmers in the early 20th century, but the third one remains missing. (This is a fictionalised account of history created for the project.)
The film features Dwayne Johnson and Ryan Reynolds together going after the antique eggs, which might sound interesting as the basic plotline to the lovers of this particular genre. But the end-result isn’t any equally interesting fair more focusing on action and their light-hearted conversations instead of the planned heists.

Directed by Rawson Marshall, it’s a fast-paced action-packed comedy that doesn’t break any kind of ground in either the execution of heists or chase sequences. Failing to deliver as per the promises made, Red Notice keeps travelling through various destinations all over the world and has a treasure hunt kind of sequence too with reference to Nazis and Hitler. But the adrenaline rush remains missing that ideally has to be the key feature of a heist movie.

However, what still keeps you involved is the sequence of multiple heists coming one after another, a jailbreak, the action, and the entertaining conversation between Dwayne and Ryan. Another worth mentioning feature of the film is the presence of Ritu Arya, who plays the Interpol agent Urvashi Das, teaming up with Dwayne as the FBI agent and Gal Godot, playing a Nora Fatehi kind of role as seen in the recent Hindi films. Overall, Red Notice is strictly a onetime watch thriller that frankly cannot be recommended as an enjoyable heist movie.

Rating : 2.5 / 5
