We at Best of Netflix might have not enjoyed Red Notice and deemed it one of the worst heist films ever, but the Netflix users seem to be loving it. While the film received mixed critical reception, viewers are going gaga over the goofy moments in the film.
Directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber, the “biggest” film that Netflix has ever made, stars Ryan Reynolds, Dwayne Johnson and Gal Gadot in lead roles.
The film sees the trio getting tangled in an exciting chase where Johnson and Reynolds, as FBI Agent Hartley, and conniving art thief Nolan Booth, respectively, get tangled in high-strung action with Gadot’s sultry and smart Bishop.
While some have been critical of the palpable awkwardness among them, others have showered Black Adam, Deadpool and Wonder Woman with praises for the undeniable amusement they bring in with them.
People have also been loving the delightful scenes that display Reynolds and Johnson’s platonic and heartwarming bromance. Reynolds’ goofy and sarcastic nature is in contrast with Johnson’s sardonic and stoic self, adding a new dimension of hilarity to their shared scenes.
Red Notice has become the second-most watched film on Netflix ever since its release earlier this November. It has generated 277.9 million hours of streams within the first 17 days of its release and is on its way to the top.
Currently, the 2018 Sandra Bullock film Bird Box is holding the top spot with 282 million hours of streaming. With how close Red Notice is to break the former’s records, Reynolds and his gang may very well create history!
