British action is getting good - SAS: Red Notice (2021) - Review

Tom Buckingham, a special forces operator, is taking Dr. Sophie Hart from London to Paris to propose. When their train is deep inside the Channel Tunnel, Grace Lewis and her team of heavily armed war criminals seize the train and hold hundreds of passengers hostage. Grace threatens to expose the British governments darkest secrets and blow up the Channel Tunnel if her ransom demands are not met. Unarmed and cut off from his counter terror team, Tom is the only hope that Sophie and the other passengers have to make it out alive. Based on the best-selling novel by former SAS operator Andy McNab, SAS: RED NOTICE is a provocative and authentic portrayal of an emergency response operation and the singular mindset Tom needs to survive.

Another great action thriller from across the pond. Vertigo Films adapts the novel by the same name for the screen in this great action movie involving betrayal and covert actions by the British government. This movie reminded me a lot of the British/American TV show Strike Back. There seems to be some great films coming from Vertigo and Sky Cinema lately. This one will hold your attention, and keep you entertained. It has some great action sequences and moments. Ruby Rose, plays another tough character getting caught up in a triple cross story line. Its not super complicated to figure out, but was still entertaining to watch. Let me know what you think.

Ranking 7/10
