So Ryan Reynolds replay his eternal score of funny little clever, a role that he has already played in countless films such as Hitman and bodyguard, 6 underground, RIPD, or course dead Pool. For Dwayne Johnson is the same, and the comedian is back in the shoes of a funny and muscular protagonist in a Jumanji, Jungle cruise, Journey to the Center of the Earth 2 or Hobbs and Shaw. So inevitably it repeats itself a bit, but it is It is always a pleasure to see these two actors having fun on screen in custom roles. In this way, Red notice it’s like this explosive duo: a light, quirky and talkative blockbuster, sometimes too long and awkwardbut reflecting a real desire to provide uncomplicated, unpretentious, and totally fun entertainment.
Red notice it is like the best entertainment of recent years. Rawson Marshall Thurber does not hesitate to borrow from his elders. More informed viewers will obviously find a great deal ofIndiana Jones (especially in his last part in the forest), but he also nods to welcome to the Jungle, from James bond, For tomb Raider, in the cinema of Guy ritchie (UNCLE code at the head) and obviously to the saga From the ocean. But the movie that most resembles Red notice is one more time Hitman and bodyguard. Already because Ryan Reynolds has a mirror role, and that the forced association of the two protagonists is very reminiscent of the agreement imposed between Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson.
Ultimately, there is not much to add Red notice. Rawson’s Marshall Thurber film is presented as a classic spy comedy, with no other ambition than to entertain the whole family, through well-known chains of this type of cinema. Obviously, it is not a masterpiece of the seventh art, but it is not embarrassing either. It’s a bit too long, but it’s often very endearing.
