Red Notice

Release Year: 2021 

Directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber

Starring Dwayne Johnson, Ryan Reynolds, Gal Gadot, Ritu Arya, and Chris Diamantopoulos

Red Notice was the No.1 Netflix movie of November 2021. The Netflix movie premiered on Friday, Nov. 12, 2021, and rocketed to the top of the Netflix Top 10.

Red Notice didn’t get killer reviews from critics, but it has a 92 percent audience approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. That’s pretty good for a Netflix action-comedy.

The movie is an enemies-to-partners tale of an FBI profiler and the art thief he was trying to catch who are forced to work together to stop an even better art thief from a massive payday.

Ryan Reynolds, Dwayne Johnson, and Gal Gadot are terrific in Red Notice, and Red Notice 2 is already in the works. We’ll let you know more about Red Notice 2 when we find out, but it’s going to be a while until the movie is on Netflix.

Verdict: WATCH
