Media Center>Netflix: Red Notice

Netflix spends $200 million on a movie. Gets A list stars and no thread?

Thought it was a fun popcorn movie. If Iíd saw this pre-Covid in theatre's, itíd still be fun.

Reynolds with wise cracking insults like he did in Deadpool. The Rock doing his Rock thing. Gadot looking sexy.

So I rewatched it, and it was funnier than I remember. Worth the time if you want a shut your mind off LOL flick.

Man, the amount of clunky exposition in this movie is PAINFUL.

And Gadot just isn’t my bag. Pretty, yes - but just no curves. And the Rock is looking old these days.

Just a really forgettable movie.

I enjoyed it. Was it a little cheesy in spots? Sure, but it kept me entertained for a couple hours. Movies you just have to go by the world they show you it is, reality doesn’t reign in the movie world. Just watch it for what it is.

I actually fell asleep trying to watch it, but I am not a Rock fan. Normally only NBA on the tube puts me to sleep. Good to see the critics agree.

When the movie is so poorly and lazily written that 2 people have to have the kind of conversation that human beings NEVER have in order to try to establish a back-story and/or plot point, it just takes me out of the movie.

There's nothing worse in a movie than these obvious exposition scenes when they're trying to fill in gaps in a plot.

Any writer worth a single damn will know the old 'show, don't tell' axiom. This movie didn't do that at all. If they didn't have a way to explain why a character would do something or know something, they just gave you a 3-4 minute scene that grinds the movie to a halt where everyone sits there and chats in overly long, overly flowery prose.

If Aaron Sorkin tried to make a heist movie after suffering a series of debilitating strokes and then falling on his head...from a significant height...multiple times - you'd have this movie.

It was honestly one of the more offensively poorly written movies I think I've ever seen.

I'm a couple episodes into the bonkers-ass Korean show called 'Hellbound' and I'd definitely recommend this over Red Notice.

But yeah - it's friggen weird.

At least its interesting weird, though.

This is almost exactly what I told my wife afterwards. But, it was some good sound sleep for about an hour. :-)

The Rock posting on Instagram that after two weeks, this is the most popular movie of all time on Netflix. I guess it’s more popular outside of ChiefsPlanet.

It's an action flick with 3 big names, of course it's doing well.

Your dad was a cop so you became a crook. My dad was a crook so I became a cop.

Oh man.

The Rock is going to run for president and win at some point this decade, I suspect. This movie was terrible and it doesn't affect his ridiculous box office whatsoever.
