The essence: … the best part of the story is yet to come. All three eggs are given to the Rich man for his daughter’s wedding. As she moves towards the eggs, she sights Ed Sheeran singing on the stage. Yes, he is singing ‘Perfect’. The bride bypasses the eggs and is in ecstasy falling over Sheeran.
Red Notice Movie Review
Cleopatra has lost her eggs… all three of them; these are no ordinary eggs, supposedly of high value. These were given to her by Mark Antony, I suppose, to proclaim his love for her. But when she was alive the eggs were with her. It was only after her death that the eggs got separated… just like Amar, Akbar and Anthony.
Now there is a movie made on the finding of these eggs because these eggs are of high value and one gentleman with loads of money, I guess he is an Egyptian, wants to gift his daughter these eggs on her wedding day.
So we have a Ricky Ponting look-alike (Ryan Reynolds) robbing the first egg from an exhibition in Italy. He is caught by this huge hunk of a guy, bald of course, who in movies after movies, portrays such a gentle spirit, whatever the scene or situation (and they called our Akshay Kumar wooden) that he ploughs through any scene with dumb conviction. Dwayne, I think he is… Not Bravo. Dwane Johnson.
He loses the egg after capturing it to a Gal who is a Gadot. I know you get it. Now she is called The Bishop. High Priestess would have been appropriate. Now Gal has one egg while Ricky Ponting loses his.
Ricky Ponting and the bald guy in a Russian prison
Ponting and the Bald guy are sent to a prison in Russia. Incidentally, both are in the same cell and they figure out the story of the three eggs and this Egyptian dad. They hatch a plan to escape. What an escape man. In one scene this Russian soldier fires a missile and the Johnson guy, yes the same bald guy, opens the door of the chopper and lets it pass through the other!
Now we come to the second egg. This is with a thug in Italy who is hi-tech. But Ponting breaks through with technology and before the two can get it, Gal gets it. She now has two eggs; Ponting has none. But Ponting knows where the third egg is. But before he can tell Gal where the third egg is she has to ‘fry’ bald guy’s eggs.
Ponting sends her to Egypt while he goes with the bald guy to Argentina to get the third egg. Surprise! Gal turns up at the same spot they find the egg. She never went to Egypt. Don’t ask me how man. I might spoil the surprise for you.
Ed Sheeran is more priceless than Cleopatra’s eggs
But the best part of the story is yet to come. All three eggs are given to the Rich man for his daughter’s wedding. As she moves towards the eggs, she sights Ed Sheeran singing on the stage. Yes, he is singing Perfect. The bride bypasses the eggs and is in ecstasy falling over Sheeran.
Anyways, the Interpol comes for the eggs; bundle up the rich dad and Sheeran as well who has to yell again and again, “I’m Ed Sheeran. I’m Ed Sheeran.” The fact is he looks like a fourth egg!
