Gemini Man (2019)

STORY – 0
DIRECTOR – 1
ACTOR – 0
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 0

 

VERDICT – 1/5

 
PROS –
1) The bike chase sequence in scenic Colombia.
2) Some good hand-to-hand action in the Catacombs fight scene
3) The entire de-agification VFX is a big success.

 

CONS –
1) The USP of this movie is director Ang Lee. However, the story is super dated and predictable. It’s every 90s sci-fi super soldier movies ever.

Henry: If they could clone a person, you’d think they’d clone more doctors or scientists, not me. They could’ve cloned Nelson Mandela.
Dani: Nelson Mandela couldn’t kill a man on a moving train from two kilometers away.

Kill the Messenger (2014)

STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 0
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 0

 

VERDICT – 2/5

 
PROS –
1) An educational movie for the audiences to understand the CIA-Contra deal to traffic cocaine into the US.
2) Andy García as Norwin Meneses. The flamboyant drug-lord in a Nicaraguan prison.

 

CONS –
1) The biographical tone of the movie is it’s the biggest problem. A story from a different point of view would’ve been more interesting. A TV Series like Narcos explaining how the drug trafficking actually started would be worth watching.

Some stories are just too true to tell.

Verdict – 5/5

 

PROS –
1) One of the best Sci-Fi movie in recent years after Looper (2012)
2) Better than it’s spiritual prequel.
3) Final 15 minutes

5) John Goodman as Howard Stambler

 

CONS –
1) As the movie got no connection with its predecessor, the name Cloverfield works as a spoiler.
