wow three heavy hitters? is this a Marvel production?

Only if the characters were Q-list level and now they are A-list and the most popular merchandising categories worldwide.

Rawson Marshall Thurber delivers a dumb-fun race between crooks and cops to locate three artifacts once belonging to Cleopatra.

 

Lifting its title from Interpol’s most-wanted list, “Dodgeball” director Rawson Marshall Thurber’s twisty treasure-hunt lark “Red Notice” blurs the lines between good guys and bad guys, and instead focuses on which of two notorious art thieves is better at breaking the law: sarcastic master forger Nolan Booth (a reliably whiny Ryan Reynolds) or his upscale nemesis, known only as “the Bishop” (a more wine-and-diney Gal Gadot).

 

“Red Notice” could be Thurber’s spin on “National Treasure,” with just as much DNA from the RKO classic “Gunga Din.” The writer-director proves plenty adept at coming up with excuses for these characters to infiltrate and escape elaborately protected locations, and though the movie relies a bit too much on cumbersome exposition (the film’s first minutes are some of the clunkiest the genre has ever seen), it moves quickly enough that most audiences won’t stumble into — or even stop to question — the plot’s many holes. Like a skilled con artist, the movie steals your time, but leaves you feeling like you got the more advantageous end of the deal.

Yikes,  watch lovehard instead

lol If I'm honest, it was well done, and if you've never seen any of the actors/actresses in anything else, this would be a good intro to their ability.

It's well done, and good not great, I liked it!
Although it was very Walking Tall meets the Red movies (with Bruce Willis), it's still enjoyable, especially if there is not currently a whole lot on your roster to watch :)

I enjoyed it more than most movies this year. Mindless fun, but a little predictable.

Ryan Reynolds and Dwayne Johnson have decent chemistry, but someone please tell Gal Gadot she can't act.
