SAS: Red Notice (2023) Movie Review: Enough to be a guilty pleasure

movie SAS: Red Alert finally brought to the Indonesian cinema screen. An action thriller starring Ruby Rose and Andy Serkis makes for an enticing spectacle, but there’s a lot of homework to be done.

Synopsis Film SAS: Red Notice

Grace Lewis (Ruby Rose) is a member of the Black Swan mercenary army led by her father. They perform dirty work on the orders of SAS commander George Clements (Andy Serkis) for the British government.

But because of an attack that was leaked to the media, Black Swan was labeled a terrorist and received an arrest warrant. After her father was killed, Grace led the members of Black Swan to escape and hijack an underwater train from London to Paris.

Tom Buckingham (Sam Heughan) who is an SAS soldier and his girlfriend, Dr. Sophie (Hannah John-Kamen) is on the train. The fight between Tom who wants to save his girlfriend and Black Swan is inevitable.

You have an interesting premise

movie SAS: Red Alert is one of the action genre movies that contains various elements of politics and revenge. Several twists and turns were prepared to make the audience interested in this film.

Clocking in at just over 2 hours, there are plenty of plots and subplots to enjoy. Starting from the background of Grace and her family, introducing Tom and Dr. Sophie, then most of the plot revolves around Grace’s hijacking of the train.

The premise offered is certainly interesting; a family of mercenaries who were hunted on the orders of the British government. There are two opposing sides, the Black Swan and the SAS.

it’s simple Red Notice perhaps not a film to be seriously enjoyed. There are many inconsistencies in terms of the story and plot provided. Sometimes strong, but not infrequently it seems strained and exaggerated.

The opening scene to introduce Grace and the members of Black Swan is too long. There are many scenes that should have been cut to make the film move at a more regular pace and dynamic that is fun to enjoy.

Erratic execution

Not without attraction. Red Notice it has a lot of potential that could make it one of the interesting franchises. Ranging from a slew of Hollywood big names and up-and-comers to action sequences not even found in most other action movies.

On the one hand, some of the details make this movie look neat and orderly. But there are many questions about the plot and details that are curious. For example, how can cell phone signal be so good underground?!!

Apart from the less regular execution, the theme raised is very enticing. The messages about people wanting revenge after being taken down by authorities who don’t want their rottenness exposed can be clearly seen.

A narrative prologue at the beginning of the film about ‘psychopaths are all around us’ is disturbing. Although it is intended to clarify the stories of the two main characters in this film, it seems odd and doesn’t have a big impact on the overall plot.

The film was first released in the UK in 2021 and was acquired by Netflix. But the title was changed to SAS: The Rise of the Black Swan. More likely to mask the original title which received poor reviews from critics.
