Review : Two Will Smiths mean double the disappointment in perplexing ' Gemini Man '. Henry Brogan ( Smith ) is a lethal legend known for doing hit jobs no one else can. His latest mission leads to him questioning if his mind and body are still fit enough, however, and he decides to retire.

Will Smith in Gemini Man . As with his last film , Billy Lynn’ s Long Halftime Walk, Ang Lee is shooting in high frame-rate, which creates a new pin-sharp clarity but at the expense of making the film look like video – or like a celluloid movie on a plasma TV when you haven’t de-activated motion smoothing.

It’s raining Will Smiths in “Gemini Man,” though double the A-lister means twice the disappointment.

Smith plays a middle-aged government assassin and – thanks to snazzy performance-capture technology – his 23-year-old killer clone in Oscar-winning director Ang Lee's sci-fi action thriller (★★ out of four; rated PG-13; in theaters nationwide Friday). The movie shoots for the moon with an intriguing dual-role conceit but wildly misses the mark. Hackneyed dialogue, a thin and silly plot fumbling the ambition of the concept, and a mixed bag of visual effects all leave this one just for the Smith completists.

Will Smith is a 51-year-old contract killer named Henry Brogan who wants out of the game. His bosses aren’t having it and send in Junior, an assassin Never mind the silly science or that Smith ’ s face is shoddily de-aged with digital technology to enable him to play Junior: it’s simply hard to buy the actor

Henry Brogan (Smith) is a lethal legend known for doing hit jobs no one else can. His latest mission leads to him questioning if his mind and body are still fit enough, however, and he decides to retire. That’s when his former bosses – including villainous superior Clay Verris (Clive Owen), who heads up black-ops science outfit GEMINI – mark Henry for death.

This is a skilled guy with decades of experience murdering folks, so Henry’s hard to kill. With the help of Danny (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), a fellow agent sent to keep an eye on him, and old friend Baron (Benedict Wong), he escapes his Georgia home and goes international to stay safe. Verris then sends in his secret weapon: Junior, a physically superior, exact replica of Henry who knows all the old man’s moves though doesn't possess his wiles.

Smith at least does his part with the Herculean task of playing the same dude three decades apart, with an old soul as Henry and a troubled one as Junior. The technology is key to pulling off this interesting two-hander and in some of the younger man’s sequences, Lee captures Smith’s eyes and persona so well, it’s like you’re seeing the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air all over again.

The effects can be great but also off-putting when they don’t quite jibe with everything else happening onscreen – which happens too often. Junior looks uncannily like Smith in one scene and then like somebody totally different the next. And in a few instances, Junior is way too obviously a digital character, the kiss of death in a movie like this.

At least the high-tech stuff leans innovative, because pretty much everything else is rather unimaginative.

Gemini Man is an innovative action-thriller starring Will Smith as Henry Brogan, an elite assassin Please enter your email address and we will email you a new password. Gemini Man is a uniquely visually thrilling film backed by Lee' s undeniable commitment and ambition. Part of this delay was getting the technology to a point that it could effectively achieve de-aging an A - list actor, but here' s a

The fight scenes between Henry and Junior are scattershot and overall the action is too far-fetched, even considering the "clones among us" business. Character motivations are all over the map, the bad guys (especially Owen) are just bad, there’s tonal whiplash aplenty (deeply serious one minute, jokey the next) and those who love action movies have seen every beat of “Gemini Man” already and can see the surprises coming. On a positive note, Smith and Wong are a great pairing and can sling zingers back and forth with ease, so get them a buddy action comedy ASAP.

This is the second lackluster outing in a row for Lee following 2016's “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk,” though at least “Gemini Man” near the end delves into the sort of emotional undercurrent that lifted his gems like “Brokeback Mountain” and “Life of Pi.” The movie ponders the humanity of a clone – is it a real person or a disposable copy? – as well as the fear of really looking at yourself, who you are and what you’ve done in your life, not metaphorically with a mirror but quite literally.

Each new data point reveals a bit more about the chemistry of Borisov’s home star system and, in turn, how unique our own solar system is within the cosmos.

This is my basic review of this movie does it have enogh action to keep it moving or is it just another copy? To his horror, he soon learns that the man who' s trying to kill him is a younger, faster, cloned version of himself. Talking Tech & Meme Review with Will Smith !

That all comes a smidge too late in an otherwise uninspired effort. And unfortunately, two Wills don’t make it right.
