    Starts off as an actually catchy blend of Traffic, Limitless, Fantastic Four and Training Day with some neat special effects but hardly stays engaging for more than half an hour.

    It's weird that the same guys created the highly original Catfish a decade ago only to end up with such a blown-up formulaic piece of sci-fi action. Well.

    Though it has a less open-ended resolution than The Old Guard, Project Power nonetheless feels like another Netflix would-be movie franchise built on a high-concept action premise that, if it gets enough views, could spawn another go. This one's about a Big Pharma conspiracy to test a drug on the streets of New Orleans, that gives you super-powers for five minutes, or if you're not so lucky, makes you blow up. The production has access to a collection of cool effects and three protagonists whose stories will dovetail in time for the finale, and the structure thus feels like this was originally written to be a TV show. Between this and the enemy's agenda, it is very much The Old Guard. What saves it from being too generic are the three leads. Jamie Foxx, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Dominique Fishback are people you want to watch, and though the first two characters, on the page, are as stock as stock can be, the actors are able to bring something extra in their performances. Not bad, but not particularly memorable either. 1 month ago

    As the first check, let me be the first to tell you not to waste your time on this movie.

    Paper thin plot, hammy acting, which no amount of special effects is ever going to save.
