Is Red Alert a bad movie?
Alerta Vermelo opens on Netflix on November 12, and before that, it should have a week-long special screening in Brazilian cinemas.
To the surprise of many, the film failed to win special critics, receiving only 42% approval at Rotten Tomatoes.
In the comments, film experts have already called Red Alert “embarrassing”, “boring” and “failed”.
“Red Alert is embarrassingly bad. A lazy, annoying and desperate copy of hundreds of better movies. The actors also have chemistry, but they put together a minimal amount of work. Boring, ”commented one of the critics.
One of the main criticisms of Allerta Vermelo includes 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 reminded me of other films. And they are all better”, analyzes critic Ian Sandwell.
The Guardian, one of the UK’s best-known newspapers, dubbed its Red Alert review “the greatest film Netflix has ever produced to offer some awards”.
Although the plot of Red Alert was heavily criticized, the performances of Dwayne Johnson, Gal Gadot and Ryan Reynolds were praised – even at the cost of the work.
“Dwayne Johnson, Gal Gadot and Ryan Reynolds save Red Alert from themselves,” comments Variety reviewers.
But not all reviews were so negative. In some reviews, critics say that the film is fun, though not innovative or particularly interesting.
“Although it’s not a very good movie, it’s easy to have fun with Red Alert,” says critic Rory Cashin.
Alerta Vermelho is already playing in theaters in Brazil and arrives on Netflix on November 12th; Watch the trailer below.
