Roll up. Roll up. See it now. See it once. And never see it again.

Obviously, the dire dialogue doesn't help, but what blunts Smith's performance and makes the film itself hell to watch is the innovative, ultra-high-frame-rate which renders actors, objects and even the air somehow flimsy and weird and fake.

The same High Frame Rate that make the actors look like they're on Days of Our Lives makes the colors absolutely pop. And those textures on the skulls in the underground ossuary fight scene! It's cooler than the action, anyway.

Gemini Man is a uniquely visually thrilling film backed by Lee's undeniable commitment and ambition.
October 11, 2019
No matter how many (presumably non-computer-generated) tears Smith sheds, he and Lee never transform this baby hit man into a plausible science-fiction conceit, let alone invest him with a soul.

Like the character at its center, it's at war with itself.

Sometimes it's just difficult to know where to look - in one dramatic shoot-out in a store, I couldn't stop staring at the perfectly visible selection of chips lining the shelves they dove past.

The plot makes no sense, the dreary script is dead on arrival, and Smith is just as blank and lost at 23 as he is at 51.

Fans of double characters should stick with Austin Powers, who, in "The Spy Who Shagged Me" (1999), enjoys the rare privilege of meeting the person he was ten minutes ago. "You," he says, "are adorable."

The frame rate doesn't speed up the pace -- the film bogs down woefully between action sequences -- and the shake rate wasn't sufficient to keep my body from going slack while my mind meandered through the story's incoherence.

[Will] Smith's kinetic charm goes a long way to making us forgive some of those shortcomings, particularly if you grew up on the '90s action films that helped make him a global star. But a movie with this type of artistic pedigree deserves more.
October 10, 2019
The idiotic spy thriller, pitting a dark-ops assassin against his younger clone, uses slick new technology but tired old plot twists.
October 10, 2019
"Gemini Man" is a lot of show, but there's no life behind the eyes.
October 10, 2019
If you're a fan of action movies, or you've ever pondered the questions of nature vs. nuture or even what you'll tell your younger self if you had a chance, you'll enjoy "Gemini Man."
October 10, 2019
Lee's inventive choices make "Gemini Man" seem cleverer, which makes it more fun.
October 10, 2019
The movie shoots for the moon with an intriguing dual-role conceit but wildly misses the mark.
October 10, 2019
[Lee's] recent desire to be at the forefront of frame-based technology, however, is resulting in hollow, empty experiences that are literally hard to watch.
October 10, 2019
It doesn't have much of a story to tell, and it has a needlessly complicated high-tech way of telling it.
October 10, 2019
The idea of facing off against your younger self is an intriguing one, but the movie never does anything particularly interesting with it.
October 10, 2019
The film promises more than the by-the-numbers climax it delivers.
