Red Notice is a 2021 American action comedy film written, directed, and produced by Rawson Marshall Thurber. Dwayne Johnson, who also served as a producer, stars as an FBI agent who reluctantly teams up with a renowned art thief (Ryan Reynolds) in order to catch an even more notorious criminal (Gal Gadot). The film marks the third collaboration between Thurber and Johnson, following Central Intelligence (2016) and Skyscraper (2018).
Originally planned for release by Universal Pictures, the film was acquired by Netflix for distribution. It began a limited theatrical release on November 5, 2021, before digitally streaming on the platform on November 12, 2021. The film received generally mixed reviews from critics, who praised the performances of the cast (particularly Reynolds and Johnson), along with the humor and cinematography, but criticized the plot and writing. It became the most-watched film in its debut weekend on Netflix, as well as the most-watched film within 28 days of release on the platform.
