DON'T LISTEN TO THE BAD REVIEWS. Action packed, clever, excellent CGI, suspenseful, attention grabbing! Does require some thought processing, so lazy thinkers just keep moving. I really tried to understand all these bad reviews from critics and movie goers. I just stopped trying...it comes down to this: don't compare this movie to other movies...it's on a different scale and No it isn't a Marvel flick. Be willing to think outside the box. Be willing to do some work...this movie required cognitive competency, so if you want a "I've seen this plot before" so you can mentally coast...this is not the right movie for you. Conculsion: GO SEE THIS FLIM FOR YOURSELF!
Lol pure utter garbage that comment made me laugh. That person should be a comedian. I could not have said it better myself. I hated this movie. The best part about this movie after an hour of it I walked out. I was sooooooooo bored. Could not take another minute of this
This was absolutely terrible. Just pure utter GARBAGE. The director should be ashamed that they made this. I would never have produced this trash. Just terrible all around. Bad script and Terrible acting and bad special effects. Will smith vs self really!!!! PATHETIC. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND SKIP THIS ONE FOREVER. If you have to see it then rent it for cheap.
It wasn't horrible, but the CGI experiment failed. The clone's eyes were blank. He was expressionless. And Will Smith as a 20 something year old was anything but expressionless, he was full of life. And now they want to do something similar by cloning James Dean onto another actor's body. It's going to be another epic fail. Not to mention creepy.
Who gives the worse performance? Smith or his CGI double? That one's debatable.
Watching this felt like you were watching a bad made-for-tv movie - low budget special effects, the cgi character was not realistic and kind of creepy to watch. I agree with the previous reviewer - it was ok until they introduced the clone, and then it went downhill fast. I’d skip this one.
Loved it so good love will smith definitely must see!
I am a grandma aged 78. My daughter is 51. Born and raised near Hollywood, having friends in the business, we are movie snobs. You know, we love Quentin, the Coen Boys etc. And yet we both LOVED this movie. It was engaging in every frame. Will Smith was excellent and the action part was creative and new. A movie, not a film. But still, worth a look.
I was really enjoying it until the introduced the clone. Then it all fell apart. Maybe if they had said that Will's DNA was used as a template to build some type of half human cyborg it would have come across better because the facil expression and acting from "clone" will were just awful. The storyline was also very predictable.
Trailer does a terrible job for getting your hopes up for this trash. Totally disappointed with this. My opinion may not speak for you but as I can see there are more bad then good comments for this movie on how terrible and boring this movie was
It looks like no one want to act in movie, so they clone will smith again to prince from bel air...Hehe...and suddenly I thought that will is his own father and uncle haha... Fun movie, but not for cinema.
JUST PURE GARBAGE. DONT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY FOR THIS GARBAGE. BORRING..... Skip this one. Definitely a sleeper. If you need to catch some Zzzzzzs then watch this. You will fall asleep in the firs 30 minutes of just be bored
Great movie, great acting ,love the action !
Action beginning to end???? Ya right!!! More like a snooze fest then the big fight at the end. The movie sucks..
This movie is boring.... Some what slow at first....action is average seen it before in other movies shooting wise. The trailer shows you all the good parts except the battle at the end.....dont waste your money wait for netflix
I was dragged to this. Wretched film. Shallow and boring. Smith's mere presence is grating as always.
Gemini Man is a significant movie and will go down in history as the first movie where a major character was computer generated. Judging by some of the comments this was a complete success as many thought Will Smith played both parts. He did not. Director Ang Lee, known for taking cinematic risks and succeeding (he says he is always extremely nervous how the movies will be received) felt Will Smith’s experience gained since he was young would change his mannerisms, how he reacted to something he had yet to experience, and his development emotionally simply made CGI a better artistic choice. In my opinion, the movie held it’s own but knowing this piece of information, I felt a wave of respect for the director, the artists, Will Smith and everybody involved in this exceptional production. I appreciate how so many great talents worked together to make this film happen. Thank you.
Fantastic action movie.
A nice companion to Smith's earlier After Earth.
Terrible script. The acting felt improvised throughout the entire movie and all the hype about the 3D is simply BS. There were barely any 3D moments! The trailer is better than the movie. Don't waste your money.
How horrible this movie is!
Smith gives two horrible performances for the price of one. Audiences should demand twice their money back.
We really enjoyed it! Made for a fun afternoon adventure! I thought Will Smith was great in his two parts!
We enjoyed it completely...good plot ,,great acting & lots of action
I agree with most of the reviews, this movie was bad. It put me to sleep during the first 30 minutes. Slow, nonsensical plot with poor action sequences. I can’t believe the studio hype any longer.
It is exactly what the poster shows. It showed what typical movies show!! Action from beginning to end. I am a fan and supporter of Will Smith. He is an intense actor!!!. I can"t wait for Bad Boys to come out! Everyone did a good job. I see 2 movies a week. Action packed!! Bike scene was great!!! It all depends on what you like in a movie!! The Gemini Man is a good movie. Go see it with an open mind. Will Smith is a clean cut guy!!
Sometimes parents just don’t understand. Terrible Movie.
A 1/2 review on this one. Movie looked so much like a video movie, almost walked out half way thru this movie.
Four stars if you are a male between 12 to 20 seeing this but for everybody else, no more than two stars. This film is basically all action and offers a novelty of extreme high definition which is interesting. Will Smith plays his part well which is not the problem with the film but a script that is not novel or captivating and depends on stunt after stunt to carry the film forward. This is not a thinking persons film but more of a high school weekend flick which is fine. Two years from now nobody will be talking about this film and will only recall it in a very general outline.
I Loved it! Good story line, intriguing concept. Really fun. "Dude whip'd Wills ass with that motor bike..lol"
Great movie, the female character is definitely the most compelling of the three (two of which are Will Smith). The cinematography was incredible, it's an experience you have to see on the big screen. And for the person who trashed the film, calling it a sleeper, please look up what sleeper means when it comes to movies. It means the film started slow but ended up being a hit. However, I bet the person who wrote that didn't even see this film.
What can I say other then pure GARBAGE. Don’t waste your time and money. Will smith versus himself really. What a joke. Wasn’t believable at all. Cheap movie for sure. If you have to see this go on cheap day or better yet just don’t see it. Wish I walked out because this was a sleeper for me
I loved it, had action, good story line, loyalty, to who it belonged, good movie
The movie was very entertaining. The acting was very good and the action was great. I don't know why so many people didn't like this movie. It was much better than I expected from watching the preview. I'm sure that anyone who enjoys a good action flick would like this movie.
Enjoyed this movie. Will Smith did a great job as always. Decent ending as well.
I enjoyed watching this movie. However I had high standards for a movie starring Will Smith
We hesitated to go see this Will Smith action movie because of the low "professional" reviews. But as usual, they were totally wrong! We loved it and so did others sitting around us. It was an intriguing plot, super high action..funny parts..great cast and acting...with Will Smith buff and amazing acting as usual. Until today we were sure Will Smith's son played Will Smith's look alike in this movie. Turns out Will Smith played more than one part with the help of a computer generated 23 year old Will Smith. I don't fully understand the technology involved to do this but it was very credible! The film was also shot in ultrahigh resolution using an ultrahigh frame rate, creating a picture that looks and feels more like reality. You felt like you were in the scene. We loved the movie and all the digital wizardry. Go see it!
a very action packed movie. I do not usually like flicks with a lot of gun fire and sorts but this one was done quite well. The ending was real cool as well.
Story was cool, best character was the girl but even more than that, the picture was amazing! I love watching movies and TV that are clear with beautiful cinematography and this was the best experience I've ever seen!
Fantastic action movie
Despite negative criticism, I saw this at 60fps and enjoyed it enough. The action was good and so was the acting. The only major flaw was the bad guy who wasn't very convincing with his cloning a person with empathy who could undermine him later. He also made himself caught too easily, typical of action movies.
I liked the movie story line was cool and the action was right on point . I thought it was much more believable then fast and furious .I rate it 8 out of 10
FACINATNG MOVIE, ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU WATCH IT FROM A SPIRITUAL POINT OF VIEW. GREAT MOVIE
You know they just grind these movies out for money...and put Will Smith as the star. Action, goofy feats and plots. I think I could write aa good a movie. But if your a Smith fan then enjoy because plots and acting do not matter.
Story line is worth a star, the rest "0" not worth the price of admission at half the price!
I was complaining about Will Smith always playing Will Smith. This is the epitome of that. No range. Glad I only spent 6.00.
