Gemini Man is an absolute howler of a film that has spent 20 years in development hell

Will plays Henry Brogan, a government assassin approaching retirement, who becomes the target of his employers because he knows about their corruption.

 

The twist is that he is hunted by the only man who could match his skills — a 20-year-old cloned version of himself, who is part of the top-secret Gemini project.

 

As you would expect from director Ang Lee, there are some fantastic action sequences.

 

But these aside, this is an absolute howler of a film, with a script Nicolas Cage would balk at.

I was considering this film so thanks for the review. I will wait for a few more reviews before deciding now.

Regardless of reviews, expect Mrs W. Smith to come out demanding several Oscars; and then claiming they didn't get them because he's black!

Saw this last week in Abu  Dhabi in 3D surround sound. Appalling story and <deleted> acting. A waste of 2 hours and almost 500 THB

I've seen a lot of bad films and this is not one. Most of the film was no worse than anything from the Marvel studios, though the ending was a bit wet, too Hollywood.

The action sequences were excellent.

Don't know why they pick on this movie when there are a lot of really bad films out there now. The last Avengers film was really, really bad, but no one panned it, far as I know.

See it, but don't expect Oscar material.

From Ang Lee I would expect the guy to fall in love and have sex with his clone.
