Called Netflix’s Biggest, Red Alert Detonates

Red Alert was advertised as one of Netflix’s biggest projects. Given its impressive cast of Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, Gal Gadot and Ryan Reynolds, nothing could go wrong, right? Unfortunately, this was not the opinion of the critics. The feature film was detonated by specialists and only secured 35% approval in Rotten Tomatoes.

“Interpol begins a relentless hunt to capture the world’s most wanted criminals. But when a shocking robbery brings an FBI agent and two rival criminals together, no one can predict what will happen,” states the film’s synopsis.

We Got This Covered has listed some critics’ reactions to the Red Alert plot on Netflix; see below and draw your own conclusions.

Is Red Alert a bad movie?

To the surprise of many people, the film failed to win the specialized critics, getting only 35% of approval in Rotten Tomatoes.

In comments, film experts already call Red Alert “shameful”, “boring” and “a failure”.

“Red Alert is disgracefully bad. A lazy, irritating and desperate copy of hundreds of better movies. The actors even have chemistry, but they just do the bare minimum. Boring”, commented one of the critics.

One of the main criticisms of Alerta Vermelho involves the fact that the film is very similar to previous releases.

“Red Alert should have won me over – a blockbuster starring big stars – but it just reminded me of other movies. And all of them are better”, analyzes critic Ian Sandwell.

The Guardian, one of the UK’s most famous newspapers, dubbed its Red Alert review “Netflix’s biggest film so far offers few rewards.”

Although Red Alert’s plot was much criticized, the performance of Dwayne Johnson, Gal Gadot and Ryan Reynolds received praise – even at the expense of the work itself.

“Dwayne Johnson, Gal Gadot and Ryan Reynolds save Red Alert from themselves,” comments the Variety reviewer.

But not all reviews were so negative. In some reviews, critics reveal that the film is fun, though not innovative or particularly interesting.

“Even though it’s not a very good movie, Red Alert is easy to have fun with,” says critic Rory Cashin.

Red Alert is available on Netflix; see the trailer below.
