Red Notice has become the biggest Netflix movie of all time, according to one of its stars, Dwayne Johnson.

The action film debuted on Netflix earlier this month and has been viewed for nearly 280 million hours. According to Dwayne Johnson, who plays the lead Red notice as FBI agent John Hartley, that makes it a record breaker.

“Red Notice is officially THE GREATEST MOVIE IN NETFLIX HISTORY !!!” he confirmed via Instagram. “We broke all records in less than two weeks and we still have many weeks ahead of us.”

Red Notice plays Dwayne Johnson as Agent Hartley, an FBI profiler charged with helping Interpol kill high-profile art thief Nolan Booth (played by Ryan Reynolds). Soon the two are forced to work together in a twist on the buddy-cop dynamic – but while the buddy-heist film has some thrills, it largely leaves critics indifferent.

IGN’s own review explains, “In Red Notice, a derivative action film that was supposed to be a lot smarter and sexier than it ultimately is, three A-listener globetrotters and double cruisers intersect.” But while Red Notice is currently only 35% Rotten tomatoes, the audience rating is very different, with an astonishing 92% rating.

Netflix confirmed that Red Notice has been viewed a total of 277.9 million hours since then its release on November 5th. That would make it one of the most popular films on the streaming service – after the 2018 horror film Bird Box (which was viewed for 282 million hours).

Dwayne Johnson’s comments seem to suggest that Red Notice may have passed this formidable milestone – making it the most watched movie on Netflix. However, Netflix has yet to confirm the movie’s last 28-day viewership numbers.
