Review: Red Notice (Netflix)

Brandon’s Entertainment Review of:

Red Notice

Now streaming on Netflix

Do. Not. Waste. Your. Time. With. This. Hunk. Of. S***!  This atrocity made me go cross-eyed in disbelief that this movie even made it out of the editing room without someone with enough dignity to put production out of its misery.  Why wasn’t this production studio hacked by North Korea?  Why did they have to waste it on The Interview starring Seth Rogen and James Franco?  Since the filmmakers basically copied and pasted every plot and punch line from every buddy-action movie ever made, I will now copy and paste all of the reviews from Rotten Tomatoes that I agree with entirely.

“There’s turn off your brain and enjoy movies, and then there’s this.” – Kristy Puchco, Mashable

“If the director and actors don’t seem engaged in trying to make a movie that does anything but hit a bunch of buddy comedy marks, there’s no reason for an audience to bother.” – Robert Levin, Newsday

“Red Notice is limp and dull, and does more to showcase the shortcomings of each of its marquee idols than it does to highlight their bankable charisma.” – Richard Lawson, Vanity Fair

“The problem is that this movie is built on nothing but making references to [its influences].” – Amy Nicholson, FilmWeek

“Red Notice is not a movie. It is a $200 million existential crisis in light.” – Scott Tobias, The Reveal

“It’s the kind of forgettable, cookie-cutter comic adventure likely to be viewed with half-a-smile and half-a-grimace throughout its entire runtime.” – Mike Massey, Gone With The Twins

“…this Nazi memorabilia frolic through meaningless landscapes spanning different continents seems as frivolous as Netflix’s bigger films have ever been.” – Taylor Baker, Drink In The Movies

“…it’s not that Red Notice is done badly, it’s just so vanilla that it leaves no taste whatsoever…” – Eddie Harrison,
