  • Gemini Man's impressive visuals are supported by some strong performances, but this sci-fi thriller is fatally undermined by a frustratingly subpar story.

    Like an assault on your eyeballs. Maybe you get used to it, but you shouldn't... Some of the action is fun, but it's really hard to get past the look of it.

    At times "Gemini Man" feels like a demo reel for Ang Lee's high tech new toy, but it's also a reasonably engaging facsimile of a '90s action movie that might remind a few people why we love Will Smith.

    Gemini Man is an action-packed and forgettable film, that allows Will Smith's talents to go to waste. The crazy thing about this movie is that I suspect it would've been so much better had it released on Netflix or some other streaming platform.

    Will be known for many things, including a dull, abysmal experiment that just flopped right out of the gate.

    "Gemini Man" is undoubtedly a technical achievement but it clearly isn't enough to offset the movie's huge gap of weaknesses suffered from a middling script and uneven direction.
