This a moving film with exceptional performances by all actors involved. The direction and writing also hits good tones and avoids becoming a blow them up action movie. I really enjoyed this film from beginning to end. Chris Evans can act and there's a nice character arch with a few of the main players. Overall I really enjoyed this and will watch it again.The fact that it's based on saving lives and happened during a really hard time in the Middle East and Africa (late 70's early 80's) makes it more poignant given the state of the world today.Overall it's an A for me. I will recommend this to my friends and family. Enjoy :)
This film tells the story of a group of agents who go into Sudan to save a group of Jewish refugees.The good number of stars attracted me to this film, and it turns out to be as good as one can expect. It is a tight drama that makes you want to find out what happens next. Furthermore, it is about an issue that people should care about. I think it is worth a good watch.
Almost missed on this film,because some people reviewed it as political propaganda instead of really reviewing the film itself.. Haters got to hate..The real review is this film is solid(acting,directed etc),enjoyable watching,and recaptures some important history.The problem with this film I felt most of the plot was repeated in other films which kept it from been really great hence gave it only a 7.
Nothing original here,except the true story behind the movie that inspired its creation.
Chris evans proves his acting chops once again. his performance was dynamic and gripping. he's always been one of my favorite actors so it's good to see him getting more serious roles that he deserves, can handle and can do well. the rest of the cast gives get performances as well.well acted, well casted, well written and well directed.
Reading the description I went into this with medial expectations thinking this would be a tears of the sun movie of 1st world military saves 3rd world.What I got was actually some interesting dialogue, some good acting and overall an interesting movie.A fun action flick that kept me entertained from the start to the end, had some exciting moments, some sad moments and the fact that it was based on a true story made it interesting, the photos of the actual hotel and team brought it together.Its probably going to get some hate from the Israel haters, but screw those troll clowns, dont feed them.
One of the very few Netflix movies I've liked. Wonderful pacing and acting, based on a true story that I never knew existed, that now I'll never forget. I couldn't stop watching. Very well done!
Much better than I thought. It is very well done: True stories are always the best. This is very well cast and directed. Chris Evans and Michael Williams are superb in their respective roles. Greg Kinnear and the rest of the cast are very good as well. A must see.
A tense throwback to the thrillers of the 1970s, Red Sea is about the aided exodus of Jews from Ethiopia by Israel in the late 70s. The script, direction and cast, main and supporting, are pretty much faultless and Chris Evans proves, without doubt, that there is life beyond the MCU; the boy can act. I do question political and religious bias, especially in light of Israel's record on human rights; however, I do not question heart and entertainment value. A great film. See it.
As with all of the Netflix films I've seen there is no character development, story seems to move too quickly and seems a bit jumpy. This means that I couldn't care less what happens to any of the characters as you don't feel for them. This film is better than Triple Frontier but it still left me wondering how Netflix are getting away with using college grade producers.
It always amazes me how negative people can be when reviewing a movie. How anyone can find fault with this flick is beyond me. I guess some people are just miserable and have to pick everything apart. Propaganda? This isn't propaganda, as one reviewer stated. What is, is a fictionalized account of a powerful and moving true story.Don't listen to the negative reviews, find out for yourself.
Enjoyed the film thoroughly. Except for a couple of years, it's well-documented. The two goofs I cut were references to Belize which was not created until 1981 - previously it was British Honduras and The singing of Duran Duran's hit "hungry like the wolf" in 1981, when it was not released until September 1982. The rest of the film is solid and the based well researched and documented events. Anyone can see that people accusing it of being propaganda are ill-educated victims of propaganda themselves, from their ridiculous hyperbole alone. This is a 99% solid film. Highly recommended.
