Netflix will present during November a production that seems to be packed with action, with three reference actors through the last years. Ryan Reynolds, Gal Gadot and Dwayne Johnson are the protagonists of a story in which, apparently, there will be no lack of action or comedy. That can be interpreted from the first trailer for Red Alert, the movie that released a trailer on September 2, 2021.
None of the actors seem to step out of the roles they played previously. Gal Gadot’s presence is reminiscent of his beginnings in Fast and Furious; The same is true of Dwayne Johnson. For his part, Ryan Reynolds, through Duro de Caridar and Deadpool, seems to have found his place in the industry, away from romantic comedies but with the same humor as always.
Red Alert, at first glance, seems quite influenced by Fast and Furious in relation to how the relationships between its protagonists are produced, although without fast cars and the implausible spectacularity of the action saga. It can also look a bit like Tough to Care. In anything, there is a certainty: the actors involved feel good in that style of movies and that is usually good news for the interested public.
The Red Alert trailer
Red Alert, for the moment, has the following synopsis: “When a Red Alert issued by Interpol, the highest-level order to hunt down and capture the world’s most wanted, comes out, the main FBI agent, John Hartley (Dwayne Johnson), is on the case. His global quest finds him smack in the middle of a daring heist in which he is forced to team up with the world’s greatest art thief, Nolan Booth (Ryan Reynolds) to catch the world’s most wanted art thief, “The Bishop “(Gal Gadot). The high-flying adventure that follows takes the trio around the world, across the dance floor, trapped in a secluded prison, in the jungle and, worst of all for them, constantly in each other’s company. “
In times when streaming platforms have experienced a more evident boom due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the premiere of productions such as Red Alert seems to be heading in the same direction: encouraging the consumption of this type of projects at home. On the other hand, for Netflix it is also important, given the growth of other platforms that, little by little, have taken away part of the content it had before.
Red Alert is considered one of the most anticipated action films of the year. It remains to be seen if, as of November 12, 2021, when it will be released on Netflix, the film responds to the expectation generated. The production is directed and scripted by Rawson Marshall Thurber, with the support of the Universal Pictures studio.
