‘Red Notice’ Delivers Light Humor and an Exciting Plot




Running through marble hallways, past gold-trimmed portrait frames and sculptures draped in plastic, FBI Agent John Hartley (Dwayne Johnson) and Nolan Booth (Ryan Reynolds) chase each other through a museum—immediately immersing the audience into an action-packed mystery story. Red Notice arrived on Netflix with its star-studded cast on Nov. 5, offering audiences comedy and a plot full of double-crosses and fast-paced chase scenes.

The movie begins with a documentary-like introduction to the legendary treasure that the plot revolves around: Cleopatra’s third egg. While the first egg resides in Rome and the second with a private buyer, the third golden, gem-studded egg remains lost. Hartley and Booth are both after that third egg. 

All things considered, this is a fun, entertaining movie with a very talented cast of superb actors and actresses. Red Notice is a quality addition to a very popular, very full genre of comedy-action movies. From start to finish, director Rawson Marshall Thurber leaves the audience guessing which character will be double-crossed next. 

The plot takes a variety of unexpected twists and turns on the path to a relatively satisfying, but predictable ending. While the several double-crosses add volatility—and perhaps even creativity—to the movie, the flow of the movie is unsurprising. 

Reynolds never fails to carry out his role with particular suave with his smooth line delivery, although he seems to be pigeon-holed into the same role in many of his movies. He plays the cunning, witty, and handsome thief who is able to escape authority, and he is perfectly suited to this role here and in the popular Deadpool films. 

In a similar sense, Johnson plays his typical no-nonsense-exterior-but-kind-heart-interior character for most of the movie. But who doesn’t love “The Rock”? The movie portrays a typical plot headed by actors playing very typical roles with no sense of exploration or originality.

But if the audience can get beyond the unoriginality, the extravagance of the museum sets and the intensity of the action scenes still provide a source of entertainment. As Netflix’s most expensive original movie to date, with a massive price tag of $200 million, the overall production was admirable. The CGI and animations were impressive, including a realistic bull that causes mayhem.

Ultimately, Red Notice is exactly what it advertises itself as. It’s a funny, wild, irreverent, silly family movie with a cast that performs their natural roles with ease. But, for anyone scrolling through Netflix looking for something new, something different, something to make you think or leave you in awe, this is not it.

KotOR remake release date, trailer, latest news



Ask people what the best Star Wars game of all time is and there is little doubt that the name you will hear the most is Knights of the Old Republic – or KotOR as we all call it for ease.

Being such a popular game, and with Star Wars all the rage again thanks in no small part to The Mandalorian, it came as little surprise to learn that we would be getting a KotOR remake and, if anything, the biggest surprise is that it has taken until now for it to happen.

And this is not just a touching up of the paint, this is a full-on remake from the ground up, so it should look incredible when we get to play it in glorious 4K HDR.

But when is the KotOR remake being released, and what changes are there to the gameplay? Here is everything you need to know!

When is the KotOR remake release date?

We will be making our return to around 4,000 years before the original Star Wars trilogy at some point, but don’t expect to be taking that trip any time soon. We do not have a release window yet, let alone a specific date, and with the team apparently still in the early stages of development, we would be surprised to see it this side of 2024 at the earliest.

What platforms can I get KotOR remake on?

The original KotOR was an Xbox exclusive. which makes it all the more jolting to learn that this will be a PlayStation and PC exclusive – at least at first.

The KotOR remake will be a timed exclusive and therefore should launch on other platforms after the time is up (which is normally 12 months). So Xbox will be getting it at some point, and there is the possibility of a Nintendo Switch release down the line too.

Can I pre-order KotOR remake?

Not yet! Fingers crossed we’ll be able to soon but, at the time of writing, there are no pre-order links available. As soon as that situation changes we will let you know right here.

KotOR remake story

Here is the official synopsis for the game, should you need your mind refreshed:

KOTOR, which is part of Legends storytelling, dials the Star Wars clock back to over 4,000 years before the Skywalker saga. The Galactic Republic is at its height and has just been through a major war. Jedi are plentiful, but so are the Sith, and the evil Darth Malak leads a growing legion of dark warriors. Players will go on an epic adventure and, along the way, visit different worlds, amass a party of memorable beings, and uncover their own mysterious past.

There certainly is a KotOR remake trailer and here it is for you to watch right now!
