Gemini Man | Rated M | Movie Review
In cinemas 10 October 2019
Gemini Man is Life of Pi director, Ang Lee’s new action thriller about assassin Henry Brogan (Will Smith) as he battles a mysterious operative sent to kill him before realising it a younger clone of himself.
This is one to see in cinemas as it is filmed at an ultra-high frame rate in 3D+. The 3D+ gives a unique experience as it immerses the audience into the film and gives an effect similar to Virtual Reality but with a look completely different to a regular 3D movie. The pans of scenery and fast-moving fight scenes seem surreal but ultra-realistic and succeed in keeping your attention throughout.
Will Smith is alluring as always, especially playing two characters at once. His clone is created entirely from CGI to impressively and convincingly produce a realistic version of Will Smith’s younger self. While the plot itself is fairly generic in typical action movie style, something about its weird but innovative filming style manages to keep you engaged. The action scenes could seem strange and awkward at times too, however there is something new and different to be experienced here.
This is one for older teens rather than kids. While there is action gun violence and plenty of explosions (though, these aren’t very loud), there is nothing too gory, no sex scenes and only some course language. However, it has a relatively serious, mature tone and is heavy on dialogue so it is much more like a drama compared to your typically fast-paced action films like Mission Impossible.
It’s appropriate for 13+ with its M rating of action violence and course language, but probably more appealing for those 15+. This film gives a sneak peek into the future of cinema and if it’s anything to go by, the movies we start to see may bring new and exciting experiences we’ve never seen before.
