As we have known for some time now, Will Smith is the protagonist alongside himself (as the poster also states) in Gemini Man, a film that marks a not so obvious 'detour' - at least in the second part of his career - for Ang Lee, whose the last American labors had been The Secrets of Brokeback Mountain, Motel Woodstock and Life of Pi. Following the story of an elite sharpshooter dragged in spite of himself in an escape / showdown by his younger clone, this avant-garde feature shot in HFR 3D + at 120 frames per second was able to count on the contribution of both Peter Jackson's Weta Digital than the experience of the special effects wizard Douglas Trumbull (our exclusive interview).

However, the end result is ultimately disappointing, lower than the sum of the talents put on the table, due to a weak - and unoriginal - script and an ambitious, but very slim concept, simply held together for 2 hours by the magic of a new technology.

The project had actually started thinking already in the late 90s, when Gemini Man was born as Disney property, with the late Tony Scott initially chosen to direct it and numerous great stars of the caliber of Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson, Clint Eastwood and Sean Connery associated with the lead role. Now, after a number of rewrites and technical setbacks, the film has finally taken off as a vehicle to relaunch the career in the fantasy-action of the 51-year-old actor from Philadelphia (stopped for about ten years, if we remove the negligible MIB 3).
