Red Notice [Movie Review]

Red Notice [Movie Review] | This is another movie that I have been waiting to watch since I saw the trailer. 

Do I have high expectation towards the movie? No because I know that Ryan will try to be as funny as he always in all his movies and The Rock will also try to be funny. So why am I excited to watch the movie?

Just because. Nothing else.

The movie starts with a history lesson of Cleopatra's three bejeweled aggs that are still missing until this very day. The first two are around, either in a museum or belong to someone, but the whereabouts of the third egg is still a mystery to everyone. During the narrator explaining the history, the scenes are showing a person 'making' the imitation of the egg, so detailed to the T.

Agent John Hartley is FBI's criminal profiler and he is assisting Interpol Agent Urvashi to apprehending Nolan Booth, a known treasure thief that is expected to steal egg number 1 from the museum in Rome. John arrived just in time to catch Nolan red-handed but Nolan managed to out best him and run with the stolen egg.

However, John has predicted that Nolan will return to his home in Bali and Nolan was captured at home with the egg. As the team prepares the egg for transportation to Rome, unknowingly to the team, they hands the egg to the hand of 'The Bishop', another thief who swaps the real egg with the fake one. 

And as John wants to return to the US, Agent Urvashi stops him as she finds evidence that John is responsible for the theft and the real egg is now long gone. She has him incarcerated in a remote Russion prison and sharing the same cell as Nolan.

In the prison, the duo are brought to meet The Bishop aka Sarah who proposes for them to find the third egg as the first one is in her possession and the second one is in the collection of an arms dealer. The duo rejects the proposal. The duo then make plans to work together to beat Sarah, get the first and second egg before heading to the unknown location of the third egg. 

Elaborate plans were made to escape prison and head to Valencia where the second egg is. Sarah is also at the mansion as they were about to break into the vault. And as they were winning in a fight against Sarah, the security detail of the arms dealer come in and captures them. Again, Sarah defeats them when she has earlier made arrangement to work together with the arms dealer to capture the duo. 

Will the duo win against Sarah in their bid to find the eggs?

MY REVIEW

Plot: 3.6 / 5.0 To answer my question earlier, the movie is a popcorn movie. No new formula in the movie as I can see references to several movies throughout - Indiana Jones movies, the Fast series, Keeping Up with The Joneses, Hitman's Bodyguard and many more. 

Only there's a twist towards the end of the movie that keeps the movie afloat somehow. 

Was it great? No. 

Was it fun to watch? Yes,  it was fun.

Cast: 3.8/ 5.0 Everyone delivers. If the roles were given to a less known actor, the movie would fail, I think. So, worth having the big names in here.

Will I Watch It Again: I would as it a fun movie to watch.

The pictures are taken from multiple sources on the Internet. Thank you.
