Do their jobs well. Bet they didn't mind that paycheque though. Gimly M Super Reviewer. Jan 17, Outside of the Sci-Fi premise, this often plays like a David Mamet thriller with the actors' flat delivery of exposition and theme.
That said, Ang Lee remains great at staging action sequences which is the main reason to see this movie. Alec B Super Reviewer.
Nov 25, Cue the many scenes where super assassin is fighting against super assassin the soul of the Jason Bourne franchise.
It'll do. Kevin M. W Super Reviewer. Oct 12, Gemini Man is one of those scripts that has been kicked around for decades in Hollywood.
At one point Clint Eastwood was attached to be the old and young versions of an elite hitman, which goes to show you how long it's been in development hell.
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 thought I'm going to offer for free, as I usually do — why not try makeup?
Surely you can find another actor who looks close to your lead and can have practical makeup applied? Or why not have that same actor's own son play the younger version of him?
Or, and here's an even more daring idea, why not just have a different actor, period? If the premise is a younger clone, who's to say why that younger clone would appear exactly like an exact representation of the older version.
What if younger clone had an accident? Anyway, nobody listened to me and Gemini Man waited and waited, finally landing Will Smith playing two versions of himself thanks to CGI magic.
Is the finished film worth the decades of toil and waiting to finally make this vision come alive? Henry Brogan Smith is an elite hired assassin for the government and on the verge of retirement.
His handlers Clive Owen have misgivings about tying up loose ends and send an assassin to take out Brogan. It just happens to be —wait for it— a clone of himself at 25!
Now Brogan must team up with a pair of underwritten government agents Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Benedict Wong to battle his younger self once and for all.
This movie feels like a dozen screenplays stitched together with every other third scene missing. You can feel the full, tortured, decades-long development process and how it has become an impenetrable force that weighs down the eventual movie and squanders whatever potential its premise could have provided.
There is a movie here, that's for sure. An older hitman confronting a clone of his younger self could make for an excellent personal reckoning as well as present a unique situation where the mature man is trying to outsmart the younger, stronger version of himself.
Gemini Man doesn't seem to know what to do with this concept at all. Why not have the clone of Henry Brogan I hate this name respond differently than the old man expects?
Because while he's made of the same genetic material, this younger version doesn't have the same formative experiences and could have a very different psychology than older Henry, never mind the fact that older Henry has an additional years of experiences to make him who he is.
That alone could tackle the nature vs. Or the movie could embrace the killing machine nature it veers to later, where our villain talks about selective editing to eliminate pesky things like morality and the ability to feel pain from his highly suggestible super soldiers.
If this is even in question, why are we even dealing with clones who might rebel against their requested missions? If you can specifically select DNA abilities, then why is one man's genetic code even that necessary?
Why not make a super soldier that's part raptor? I've never seen a movie before where that went wrong. I don't even know why we need clone killers in the age of inexpensive drones.
The easiest thing the movie could have done is treat the younger clone as a metaphor for his troubled past he needs to confront.
They also have the imagination to keep them on their toes. Learn more about Gemini compatibility. These Gemini men are all charismatic and have varied careers, reflecting their eclectic interests.

In fact, he might suggest something himself. In fact, you can take turns with this. They value independence not only for themselves, but for their partners.
Not every Gemini is a party goer, but in general Geminis like excitement and adventure. Boredom is pretty much intolerable to Geminis, and routine is a one-way ticket to Boring Town.
In and out of bed, predictability can kill the mood. Smelling clean and luscious is high on their lists. The low opening was blamed on poor critical response, the familiar premise and the over-performance of Joker.
The film opened in five countries the week prior to its U. The website's critics consensus reads: " Gemini Man ' s impressive visuals are supported by some strong performances, but this sci-fi thriller is fatally undermined by a frustratingly subpar story.
Variety ' s Peter DeBruge called the film "a high-concept misfire" and wrote: "In practice, it's been a nearly impossible project to get made, passing through the hands of countless actors and falling through multiple times because the technology wasn't there yet.
At least, that's been the excuse, although judging by the finished product, it was the script that never lived up to the promise of its premise.
On paper, Gemini Man tends to all three concerns, but in practice the film is impenetrable beyond its technological clout.
Giving the film one star, Kevin Maher of The Times was unimpressed with the script and the fps shooting, writing "It keeps every detail in the frame background and foreground in vivid, garish focus at all times.
Besides being aesthetically repellent it's like s children's telly or the worst wedding video yet " and called the de-aging "alarmingly unconvincing".
The film has been criticized for its unrealistic level of genetic determinism, and its failure to explicitly distinguish between cloning and cloning combined with genetic engineering.

They love to rub elbows with the smartest people in the room and get a thrill from name dropping their well-known friends and connections.
A classic Gemini is an ideal company man — happiest at the roundtable or board meeting where he can spout off from the font of his relentless inspiration.
Dictating ideas works better for him because sometimes they flow out faster than he or anyone else can keep up with. Getting bored and not having enough to do is torture for these brilliant thinkers, who live to brainstorm and problem-solve.
Unfortunately, sometimes they can get overly enthusiastic, and may not let anyone else get a word in edgewise.
