AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: The Red Sea Diving Resort makes uninspired use of actual events, using thinly written characters to tell a story derailed by its own good intentions.

Critic Reviews for The Red Sea Diving Resort

All Critics (41) | Top Critics (10)

A large part of the problem is the casting of Chris Evans as the leader of the Israeli spy ring that set up the hotel. He is most known for playing Captain America and seems not to have put aside his shield for this film.

The Red Sea Diving Resort is staggering in its utter lack of self-awareness, a movie attempting (and failing) to be very righteous in its discussion of refugee rights and displaced peoples.

The focus turns the film into a quintessential white savior movie, making every person of color a prop to be saved rather than a developed character.

The problem stems from a general flatness of the characters and, despite the harrowing situations, storytelling.

"Red Sea" has genuine-seeming concern for the refugees it depicts, but doesn't memorably capture the impressive true tale.

"The Red Sea Diving Resort" is "inspired by true events," we're told early on, but it can't help but come off like a cheesy movie.
