Red Notice stars Dwayne Johnson, Ryan Reynolds, and Gal Gadot took to their respective social media handles to celebrate the film’s “biggest opening day in Netflix film history” on Saturday. Since the film was not released in theaters except for a limited release in the US, this probably means that the film has garnered the most views for any film on Netflix to date.

Red Notice is a Netflix action comedy thriller written and directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber. Its trailers and promos had teased a fast-paced globe-trotting comedic action thriller. The film was scheduled to be released by Universal Pictures before Netflix acquired the rights.
Despite its star cast, Red Notice did not please critics. The film has a score of 39 percent on review aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes. The critical consensus reads, “Red Notice’s big-budget and A-list cast add up to a slickly competent action comedy whose gaudy ingredients only make the middling results more disappointing.”
