While It Feels Like Bottom Of The Barrell Ryan Reynolds Jokes, That Reynolds and Gadot Share, They Are Still Funny

Ryan Reynolds recently noted he plans to take a break from acting, and alongside spending more time with his family, I think it is also, so people don’t grow tired of his shtick too. For that usual sarcastic character that has made him an A-lister, not only is he playing that same character, but it seems whatever jokes he passed on were given to Gal Gadot. This allows them both to be funny, but with so many of the jokes, you’ll feel that they were cut from better Ryan Reynolds movies.

Dwayne Johnson Is Dwayne Johnson

The best thing you can say about Johnson is, like anyone who plays the straight man to Reynolds, he does what is needed. While Reynolds is in a lot of films that have action, his comfort zone is the comedy section and he relies on the other person to have the cool shootouts or fight scenes. Johnson is chosen this time and compensates well for Reynolds.

As for his character outside of Reynolds? Like everyone in the movie, it is good enough. I can guarantee you won’t say, “Oh, Dwayne Johnson is really pushing himself with this movie!” but you’ll definitely say he brought what you expected and left you happy.

Overall

Our Rating: Positive (Worth Seeing)

Nolan Booth (Ryan Reynolds), Agent John Hartly (Dwayne Johnson), and The Bishop (Gal Gadot) when they team up
RED NOTICE – (L-R) RYAN REYNOLDS, DWAYNE ‘THE ROCK’ JOHNSON, and GAL GADOT STAR IN NETFLIX’S RED NOTICE RELEASING NOVEMBER 12, 2021. WRITTEN & DIRECTED BY RAWSON MARSHALL THURBER. Cr: Frank Masi/NETFLIX © 2021

Red Notice seems like one of those movies which will pop on Netflix for a week when it comes out November 12th and then fizzle out. Why? Well, it isn’t bad, but it isn’t great either. It’s just a fun way to spend Friday night if you have nothing better to do and don’t feel like going out. And with Dwayne Johnson delivering what is expected, Ryan Reynolds doing the same, and Gal Gadot, it makes for a nice, simple action movie that doesn’t try to do anything but be entertaining.
