The most expensive film in Netflix history, “Red Alert,” has already become a hit with streaming subscribers. But the production was the target of much controversy among Twitter users, who discovered a grotesque error regarding the geography of Brazil.
At one point in the film, which stars Dwayne Johnson, Gal Gadot and Ryan Reynolds, one of the protagonists discovers the coordinates of a historic relic he has been searching for for years.
According to the plot, according to the latitude and the longitude which appear on the screen, the coordinates would indicate that the object in question would be in a province of the north of Argentina.
However, the marker actually points to a region in southern Brazil, implying that such an Argentine province would be located in our country.
The geolocation error has not gone unnoticed and many streaming users have drawn attention to it.
Check out some of the reactions:
The film Red Alert features a tropical forest in Argentina. @NetflixBrasil someone is talking

Aren’t you ashamed to produce a film, to put coordinates of Brazil (more precisely in Horizontina / RS) saying that it is in Argentina and, in addition, to launch a forest imitating the Amazon on the stage? ? Phew!

I didn’t know Argentina was in Brazil …
In the movie #AlertaVermelho he showed the map of South America and placed Argentina within Brazil, the location is in the country Brazil and not Argentina. Argentina is not in Brazil

The movie is just popcorn, but these grotesque geographic errors are hard to swallow when you’re in the area.
Tropical forest, in the pampas, and in addition, coordinates of Brazil, Argentina …

The feature film is written and directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber (‘Skyscraper’).
In history, when Interpol issues the Red Alert – a global search and arrest warrant for the world’s most wanted criminals – it is time for senior FBI investigator John Hartley (Dwayne Johnson) to to intervene. The hunt will put him in the middle of a daring assault plan, forcing him to team up with con artist Nolan Booth (Ryan Reynolds) to capture the world’s most wanted masterpiece thief, “The Bishop”. (Gal Gadot). This great adventure will take the trio around the world, past dance floors, an isolated prison, through the jungle and, even worse, constantly in each other’s company. The stellar cast also includes Ritu Arya and Chris Diamantopoulos. Directed and written by Rawson Marshall Thurber (Central Intelligence, Skyscraper: Boundless Courage) and produced by Hiram Garcia, Dwayne Johnson and Dany Garcia of Seven Bucks Productions, Beau Flynn of Flynn Picture Co. and Thurber’s Bad Version, Inc., Red Alert is an elegant game of cat and mouse around the world.
