Well, it is very hard to recommend a movie like Red Notice. Despite having a stellar cast, Red Notice is unfortunately not worth watching. It seems as if the whole movie was seriously relying on the on-screen partnership of Dwyane Johnson and Ryan Reynolds. But in the end, it turned out to be odd and less pleasant.
The story itself is very unconvincing with an overreliance on badly timed long jokes. In fact, at times it gets very hard to decipher the intended jokes. Also, the screenplay looks unnecessarily complicated making the movie extra stretched and boring.
Red Notice is a movie that is very hard to finish in just one sitting. The movie is very disappointing to start with and clearly lacks any engagement. Even the remarkable charm of its star cast fails to give it some sort of spice.
Ryan Reynolds in Red Notice
Ryan Reynolds is a great actor with some powerful performances under his belt. But after watching Red Notice it feels as if his iconic character style inspired by Deadpool films now looks less amusing.
I think it’s time filmmakers start writing slightly different types of characters for Ryan Reynolds. Because repeating the same kind of characterization for a great actor is not the best thing to do.
Gal Gadot and Dwyane Johnson
Red Notice would have been much worse without Gal Gadot. Her character is the only pleasant thing in the whole movie. Some of the action scenes featuring Gal Gadot also look very good.
Dwyane Johnson on the other hand doesn’t look the best in this movie. I think the story overall and the screenplay particularly fail to bank on a character like Dwyane The Rock Johnson. Fans do expect a lot from a Dwyane Johnson movie.
Is Red Notice Worth Watching?
It is truly hard to say but I don’t think Red Notice is worth watching. With a star cast like that, movies should be better than this one. If you want to see why Red Notice has so many negative reviews then you should watch it. Otherwise, it is just fine to skip it.
