We can't make a list of the best heist movies on Netflix without including the most popular Netflix movie of all time, Red Notice. The hit action-comedy premiered on Netflix in the fall of 2021, and it was a mega-hit for the streaming network. Netflix quickly ordered two more sequels for Red Notice, so there will be at least three movies in this series when it's all done and dusted. Unfortunately, it's been over two years, and we still don't know when Red Notice 2 is coming to Netflix.

If you haven't seen Red Notice yet, you have plenty of time to check it out. The film has an incredible cast led by Ryan Reynolds, Gal Gadot, and Dwayne Johnson. It tells the story of art thief and conman Nolan Booth, played by Reynolds, and FBI agent, John Hartley, played by Johnson, who begin working together to take down the biggest and best thief in the world, The Bishop, played by Gadot, as they try to find Cleopatra's Eggs for a huge score.

Overall, Red Notice isn't one of Netflix's best movies. It's very popular, of course, and features some great action sequences and twists and turns. But, the story does leave a little to be desired. Luckily, the film has three of the most successful and charismatic movie stars to help.
