WILL SMITH STARS IN THE NONSTOP ACTION THRILL RIDE FROM
ACADEMY AWARD®-WINNING* DIRECTOR ANG LEE
Now on Blu-ray, 4K Ultra HD, & Digital and ready for you to take home and enjoy!
Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this film for review. The opinions of this blog are my own. I’m not a professional in any way but I am a movie fan.
Let’s start off by pointing out that (in my opinion) Will Smith has evolved over the years as an actor to become the A-list-type that he is today. It’s easy to see how he has become an actor that excels in not only comedy, but also drama and action. Having grown up with the ‘Fresh Prince of Bel Air’, it’s difficult to forget those old days! Overall, I think we all approve!
GEMINI MAN starring Will Smith, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Clive Owen, Benedict Wong. Directed by Ang Lee.
Will Smith stars as retired hitman Henry Brogan, forced on the run by a young, highly skilled operative who will stop at nothing to eliminate his target. Now on a race around the globe, Henry must outsmart the mysterious assassin at every step – but how far will he go once they finally come face to face? Packed with epic fight scenes and groundbreaking visual effects, GEMINI MAN is the future of action movies.
U.S. Rating: PG-13, violence and action throughout, and brief strong language
Canadian Rating: PG, violence, coarse language
It goes without saying, with Will Smith starring in this film it’s going to be amazing! In the very least, Will Smith will give a great performance. Without giving away anything about the movie I can say that; once again, Will does not disappoint.
The frame rate, hyper stylizing in this case, for some may not be preferred; however, I don’t mind it at all, and I just accept it as how the movie is intended to be seen. I feel like it adds a sharpness to the film and it amplifies the entire experience.
The 4K Ultra HD disc and 4K Ultra HD Digital releases present the film in Dolby Vision®, which brings entertainment to life through ultra-vivid picture quality with spectacular colors, highlights that are up to 40 times brighter, and blacks that are 10 times darker. GEMINI MAN is the first ever Dolby Vision high frame rate disc to be released. The film also boasts a Dolby Atmos® soundtrack remixed specifically for the home to place audio anywhere in the room, including overhead.
[In addition, both the 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray Combo Packs include access to a Digital copy of the film.]
This film is unlike anything you’ve seen before. Will Smith plays two roles of a character at two different ages (with the use of de-aging technology). While the plot is a little dull, and the dialogue a little tired, I can say that I really enjoyed seeing the interaction between old Will Smith vs. young Will Smith because; to me, the concept is mind-blowing. While the graphics didn’t allow for a seamless journey, it did allow for an unique, vividly thrilling experience.
GEMINI MAN is an action-packed movie that you just have to see!
