Advertised as Netflix’s biggest movie to date, Red Notice boasts some major star power in its globe-trotting adventure. The movie stars Dwayne Johnson as an Interpol agent who teams with an art thief (Ryan Reynolds) to catch another international criminal (Gal Gadot).
Along with the big names, Red Notice delivers a globe-trotting adventure with wild action sequences, fun heists, and plenty of double-crosses. It is a movie that is clearly inspired by some others in the genre, so if fans enjoyed Red Notice, there are many other fun adventures that they should check out next.
10 Raiders Of The Lost Ark (1981)
Any movie that deals with a globe-trotting treasure hunt for a rare item is inevitably going to be compared to Raiders of the Lost Ark. In fact, Red Notice is so influenced by the iconic adventure that Ryan Reynolds whistles the theme song at one point.
But while the quest to find the Ark of the Covenant is fun, the real reason Raiders of the Lost Ark became such a big movie was its hero, Indiana Jones. Harrison Ford helped to create one of the most thrilling and lovable movie characters of all time and there is no beating his wild first adventure.
9 Fast Five (2011)
Though it started as a simple car racing series, the Fast and Furious movies eventually grew into a massive international crime franchise. Fast Five is likely the movie responsible for that change as it amped up the scale in a huge way.
The movie is also notable for introducing Dwayne Johnson as Hobbs who became one of the best characters in the Fast and Furious movies. With Gal Gadot also returning as Gisele for a wild heist story, fans of Red Notice will find a lot to love in Fast Five.
8 6 Underground (2019)
While Johnson and Gadot had the Fast and Furious movies, Ryan Reynolds had his own international action-adventure that fans of Red Notice will likely enjoy. 6 Underground stars Reynolds as the leader of a covert group of individuals who pull off secret missions around the world.
With Michael Bay at the helm, 6 Underground is another wild and explosion-filled Netflix action movie. Reynolds brings his signature fast-paced humor and there are some inventive sequences including one incredibly fun one involving a giant magnet.
7 The Monuments Men (2014)
With Reynolds playing a skilled art thief, Red Notice gets a somewhat different style of heist movie. Combining that with the story linking back to World War II, the movie shares a number of similarities with the adventure movie The Monuments Men.
It stars the likes of George Clooney, Matt Damon, and Bill Murray as a group of art experts tasked with saving valuable pieces of art from being destroyed during the European battles. While it is not as action-packed as Red Notice, it is an interesting war story based on real events.
6 Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (1988)
Part of the fun of Red Notice is the various con games involved that keep the audience on their toes and wondering who is telling the truth. Seeing con artists go head-to-head can be such fun which is the case for the hilarious comedy Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.
The movie stars Steve Martin and Michael Caine as two rival con artists who face off against each other in an attempt to swindle money from a wealthy heiress. The back-and-forth game of deception makes for an entertaining and funny ride.
5 Ocean’s Twelve (2004)
The first Ocean’s Eleven stuck to a very simple heist story with the gang of thieves attempting to rob a trio of Las Vegas casinos. However, the sequel goes in a slightly different direction as Danny Ocean and his team faces off with a French art thief in a high-stakes competition.
Though some fans were disappointed with the follow-up, Ocean’s Twelve is a funny and smooth new romp with the star-studded cast. And with so many twists and a similar MacGuffin for the team to steal, it feels like a low-key version of Red Notice.
4 Entrapment (1999)
Decades after stepping away from his 007 role, Sean Connery proved to still play a man of mystery with great ease. Entrapment stars Catherine Zeta-Jones as an insurance agent who works her way into the company of Connery’s master art thief in an attempt to bring him down.
It is a stylish and gripping crime thriller that is also filled with deception and backstabbing. The two stars make for an interesting pair and there are some fun heist sequences to make it a memorable entry in the genre.
3 Army Of Thieves (2021)
Netflix’s other recent high-profile action movie shares a very similar style to Red Notice. Though it is a prequel to Army of the Dead, Army of Thieves drops the horror elements to tell a straightforward and fast-paced heist story.
The movie brings together an eccentric team of criminals to pull off a series of bank jobs with safes that are thought to be uncrackable. Army of Thieves features the same stylish approach with a mix of humor that is seen in Red Notice and makes them both very accessible action movies.
2 The Thomas Crown Affair (1999)
Though the original version of The Thomas Crown Affair is a terrific crime movie, the remake manages to retell the story in a very entertaining way. Pierce Brosnan stars as the titular art thief who becomes hunted by a determined detective, played by Rene Russo.
Like Red Notice, the idea of loyalty among these characters is routinely called into question as the story goes on. It makes for a thrilling ride with a wildly fun climactic heist sequence that is pure joy.
1 National Treasure (2004)
Along with being a heist movie within the world of art collection, Red Notice is also a treasure hunting adventure focused on finding ancient artifacts that have links to historic events. When the movie leans into these elements, it feels very similar to National Treasure.
These adventure popcorn movies starred Nicholas Cage as a treasure hunter who would go on daring missions to uncover secrets in America’s history. Any movie that features Cage stealing the Declaration of Independence is at least going to be a little entertaining.
