Enjoyable and well paced .

But it is somewhat enjoyable to watch thanks to his well made action sequences.

The story was dull and boring, it had nothing new to offer, and the ending twist was lackluster.

Action filled yet predictable .

A film that is equal amounts dumb, bland and uninspired, Gemini Man is the very worst kind of Hollywood blockbuster that is more likely to encourage sleep rather than encourage viewers to have a fun time with an enjoyable piece of escapist entertainment.

Definitely worth a watch, I found it entertaining throughout.

Looks like a high budget tv movie, but boring, and without charm .

Very enjoyable story and great entertainment.

The action is too mingled up with unfunny comedy and the ending is predictable.

Very predictable.

Predictable and Boring .

And the endless weightless and predictable reveals.

30 minutes into the movie you'll realize the plot become messy and uninteresting.

The "twists" are extremely predictable unless you're 10 years old, which is the only way I could imagine someone enjoying this movie.

But even with his face completely still and empty of emotions, the eyes just look too doll-like.

But I thoroughly enjoyed this movie, so did my husband and teen son so there are a few different audiences who collectively enjoyed it.

Finally, it's a watchable action movie that has a lot of elements of Netflix production, which means everything is average but enjoyable to watch in home with your family or friends with a bucket of popcorn.

When I first heard of the premise of the movie, it sounded so intriguing.

Because of that, I gained unexpected tremendous astonishing visual experience from those shamelessly short minutes of fighting and car-chasing scene.

I fall a sleep during this movie, it is boring and the acting sucks!

Very slow and loose ends throughout the film.

Fake looking sets and empty locations where they were obviously too cheap to get some extras.

The director and special effects are great but the story was a bit repetitive and stereotypical.


I almost walked out of theater twice.

In fact, we'd dare say you'll be bored stiff during the two-hour duration, because other than the action, there is little momentum to the storytelling at all.

Save your money .

Terrible Chinese Propaganda .

It was a great movie to watch on a rainy day and It was very enjoyable to say the least.

Gemini Man is an enjoyable run of the mill action spectacle, though itself a clone of other films of the past like Looper, and is overall a standard vehicle for Will Smith.

Don't waste your time by watching this boring movie.

I can agree a bit with some negative comments on the story line, it had a certain ordained air to it in spots, but visually it was wildly enjoyable, just what I wanted for a saturday matinee.

Entertaining though.

I believe reading a book might have been more exciting.

Really action packed and very entertaining for people who like action films.

The dialogue is a little bad lil 80s ish at times and the plot is gery basic causing the movie to feel empty and feel slow.

, not bad idea, the de-aging effects were good, but the script was dull.

From here it can get predictable.

Terrible, predictable story with a pacing and agenda from a Cold War movie.

There was no plot at all.

Enjoyable movie.

Bland action combined with a lack of entertainment made me review this to warn others!

Overall i'd add this to my 'watch if boredom truly takes over' category and won't be recommending to anyone any time soon.

Will Smith battling a younger version of Will is thrilling and exciting.

It's safe and boring while the HFR, VFX and 3D is groundbreaking and pioneering.

David Benioff and Billy Ray wrote an entertaining screenplay.

It's nice to watch a creative action packed film that is tastefully done and I could actually watch it around my kids!!

However, if you like your action movies full of lengthy, pointless conversations with perhaps a couple of predictable, dodgy CGI action scenes then this could be for you.

the story is no story .

Maybe people (myself included) are just bored with all the fanfare around technology/special effects in cinema.

That said, it's enjoyable.

A entertaining action film .

" Overall a forgettable and banal movie that will be forgotten almost as soon as you are done watching it.

It's a good entertaining action movie to waste some time to.

The movie was starting great and the action scenes was intense and good and then we see the first appearance of Will Smith Clone .

Very slow and boring beginning with a lot of unnecessary scenes.

Storyline very boring.

Boring bellow average action schlock.

Lacklustre story that literally has nothing of a plot other than to pit 2 will smiths against each other using preety subpar ( in places) cgi, I can only assume this was originally meant for a straight to DVD release but then someone had a change of heart and decided on a cinema release instead, it's not that it's bad it's just not good, the plot is boring with a bland story line,the action scenes are mostly MEH!

I could easily watch this again - even knowing all it's twists now (and there were several that were quite intriguing too!

I enjoyed watching this movie, didnt get bored one single moment, keeps you the full length of the movie entertained.

A gripping plot with amazing characters.

Just wasn't good enough compared to previous works of Ang Lee, it felt completely boring other than just CGIs and 3D effect and the clear motion of the HFR that kept me awake.

There are a few exciting action sequences with Will escaping from a team of elite soldiers.

In "Gemini Man's" only memorable scene, director Ang Lee orchestrates a swerving, adrenaline-laced motorcycle chase with the assailant in hot pursuit of the hero through traffic on a winding two-lane street.

Entertaining and worth it to see.

To say it is contrived is to do a disservice to the word "contrived".

The action scenes and some other scenes are actually very breathtaking.

Watchable enjoyable.

There are some reasonable chases, guns blazing and explosions, but then it is taken up by an unconvincing script and plot, the chatty scenes definitely slow it down, the novelty of two versions of Smith onscreen wears thin, and it is just too much style over substance, a good idea not done very well, a disappointing action thriller.

Flawed as in Really Boring .

Long story short, the first half was dumb, slow and boring, and the second half was dumb, blurry and infuriating.

Entertaining movie, awesome visuality .

PROS:Will Smith's Fantastic Daul PerformanceAng Lee's Strong DirectingStrong Supporting Cast (Especially Mary Elizabeth Winstead)Fun Action Sequences (Especially A Motorcycle Chase)The De-Aging CGI Is Actually Mostly ImpressiveThe CinematographyIt Knows What It Is And Embraces ItCONS:The Very Un-Original ScriptLots Of Cheesy Dialogue (And Exposition)The Ending CGI Is BadFirst Act Is Slow Paced (Some Scenes Could Of Been Cut Down)

The action sequences in the movie are pretty bland.

Waste of viewing time!

Don't waste your time .

They did good job deaging will smith but that didnt save his charcter from being boring and bland

Director Ang Lee delivers an entertaining SF/Conspiracy Action Thriller.

There's no character development, no real plot and no actual villian.

Film and story were actually pretty entertaining, acting was not bad, just a shame the FX were so terrible, the action Scenes were more like a video game.

The distinct upsides: The entertaining screenplay by David Benioff, Billy Ray, and Darren Lemke and the strong compelling Will Smith on both sides of this existential conflict.

This movie is enjoyable.

I couldn't take it anymore half way through and I walked out of the theater.

However the script their given is incredibly boring and unfortunately very cliche.........

In a conventional movie, this would have been a place where high-speed editing would have been used to enhance the sense of thunderous force, but in "the twin killers," it's a strange slow-motion scene, where there's a disconnect between slowness and plot tension.


As indeed is this film, that's a bland, formulaic, action flick with no real build up and an truncated climax, that fizzles when it should burn.

Our eyes are capable of seeing more than 100 frames per second, tv sellers use the 100, 200hz propaganda so they sell, and you "want" to watch movies in 24 lousy frames!!!

The chase through Cartajena was exciting.

Story wise it was boring, predictable and didn't pay off anything.

Badly written, poorly executed and generally quite dull, the technology used to make will smith younger is just distracting and looks so fake.

A predictable narrative with some out of place jokes and some real head-scratching moments that nearly turned the film into a parody.

CGI Breaks the Mold But Entertaining Nonetheless .

In a separate instance, 'Chief' Film Critic Fionnuala Halligan from Screen Daily actually went so far as to say that Will Smith's ( just referenced ) Absolutely "Stunning" multiple role ( - including one 'Digitally De-Aged' rendition nominated by the A.

The result is a very boring film.

While this is not exactly representative of Lee's best work, it should be an enjoyable cinematic experience provided that one manages one's expectation.

Some flaws but very entertaining .

This movie isn't going to break barriers but it is for the most part an enjoyable watch, the script and story is mediocre but it is uplifted with swift direction and some exciting action.

At the end of the day, this won't go down as one of Will's best movies, but action-wise, it may be one of his most entertaining.

The action is actually pretty entertaining but can be very predictable, it definitely has your attention though.

The movie is awe-inspiring, technically advanced and an enjoyable creative force.

Overall: It's an utter garbage that is uninteresting, and nor even good or bad dumb action movie, this movie is the definition of "Nothing"

Story was about 80% there, but fell apart on antagonist and fell asleep on the ending.

This yawn worthy film had no depth to it, every scene was predictable and dialogue was so poor it made the film cringeworthy at the emotional scenes as you can't connect to it.

I thought it was a pretty entertaining movie.

This is very enjoyable and the pacing is excellent as is the ending.

The action was mildly entertaining.

Overall, Ang Lee has brought a refreshing, very entertaining and quite improved dynamic to action thrillers.

Will Smith used to be a good actor in movies like The Pursuit of Happiness & Men in Black But this movie was boring and the young Will Smith is super cringe What happened to you Will ?

It feels that the side characters were there only to have Smith talk to someone and the villain was generic to the point of yawning.

It's action packed with a great cast and Will Smith did a excellent job.

But don't expect too much from it , the idea was totally a copy of the movie "looper", story was so predictable , editing was horrible , the special effects were so fake !

The opening of the movie could be see that there is a train in Belgium moving fast and the cameraman has used a wide angle shot for one part of the scene of moving train as this could be define that the scene wish to bring out the sense of intense due to the main actor is conducting his final case that assign by the government department of Defense Intelligence Agency which is snipe the target terrorist in the moving train.


Great acting, great story line from beginning to end and I was on the edge of my seat for the most of the movie!

Some good points but tedious at times .

Enjoyed it.

The clones were entertaining and you could really sympathise with them since how they felt so different and really Aspergian and that they couldn't understand what it was really like to be human and they felt created to carry out a single task.

Worth Watching .


The visuals take some getting used to after about 10-15 minutes your immersed in the Graphically Impressive action.

Cons: (-) Everything else; The plot was utterly boring, and dragged like hell, it basicly builds on one sentence premise.

Boring .

Every character had a blank, emotionless face in every single scene, the movie was predictable and unoriginal trash .

Especially to see how the conflict between the main characters and their clones, would keep going on until they both arrive to an unexpected conclusion.

Boring .

This has been the worst movie in terms of money value I have ever seen.

The scientist wanted to leave the project, after methods were designed to produce clones with no pain or emotion, he was killed after being discovered.

This is the worst movie I've seen the last 12 months.

Honestly, the movie was action packed and didn't leave me dozing off in any way.

It would go between fast to slow very dramatically; and erratically.

The action sequences were good, cinematography was cool, the interaction between Junior and Winstead and older Smith was entertaining.

Ang Lee as director and story by David Benioff produced an enjoyable movie even though characters are a little flat and the story is not ground-breaking or life-changing it is not anything near an Oscar performance.

In terms of action, despite a couple of shaky scenes (Winstead's fight for example), on the whole it's impressive, the fidelity draws you in, the HFR keeps it fluid and the VFX makes it pop in an exciting way.

in fact is above average and very very entertaining.

Be aware that the movie will get slower in the middle.

It dragged way to long.

I remember reflecting on Avatar after I saw it at the cinema and thinking that despite the generic plot it was such a thrilling experience that largely to the 3D.

When the hero and the villain are the same person, it's actually very boring.

Entertaining action movie.

However about 30 minutes into the movie and the plot is predictable and it pretty much drains all fun and excitement out of the rest of the movie.

It's compelling.

dumb plot, terrible cgi, horrible acting, just waste of time !

Boring, lazy and unimaginative is how one would describe the new Will Smith starrer 'Gemini Man'.


An action thriller worth watching and enjoying with popcorn.

Then we have the "only two bullets left" cliché.

A cool concept cant mask the generic & outright boring action scenes, stilted & awkward dialogue & very one dimensional cliched characters.

An enjoyable movie although the huge missed chances to make it a great one.

Found it boring, could of done so much more to make it better.

Great acting by Will Smith, excellent action , engaging story, and interesting premise with some interesting moral discussions .

Action Packed, High Octane Movie!!.

predominantly boring .

The shoot out scenes and the motorcycle chase scene was exciting.

The story and the idea is appealing and it's definitely worth watching.

I enjoyed it and would buy it on DVD.

Bad blend boring no story the end.

Overall, Gemini Man is a lot better then the trailer makes it out to be but it's odd tonally flawed entertaining action film.

The first scene was utterly ludicrous, but after that I found this an enjoyable action film.

It's probably not a film that will stick in my mind, but I definitely enjoyed it whilst watching it.

The characters fill their roles well, but the pacing felt a bit slow and the blatant product placement was appalling.

Overall, if you're not expecting too much originality (other than in the digital younger version of Will Smith) and you like action films, you will probably find it entertaining.

Moreover, they have also utilized the lighting in one of the scene which Henry's house being embedded by someone but at the same time the actor is also having a nightmare that regarded to his childhood memory, they have use the red and blue light to indicate that actually the situation is intense and back to forw.

Gemini Man was alright, nothing special, mildly entertaining.

The chase scene when they were on their motorbikes was amazing, really intense.

Everithing in this movie is rushed and predictable.

In fact all this tactic does is slow everything way down for something the audience already knows.

It was a waste of time and money making it.

A very good action thriller movie, i enjoyed watching it, it's really entertaining.

This scene actually a bit intense!

The story of the twin killers will no doubt prove to be the film's Achilles heel, as the soft science fiction concept of human cloning is a cliche in Hollywood, and the outlaw agent is even worse.

Save yourself from this dire going nowhere plot with terrible effects....


It has a fairly bad script and a silly central conceit, but it's entertaining enough to feel worth your time.

In fact it was very entertaining and enjoyable.

I enjoyed it.

Was pretty entertaining, script could of been cleaned up to make it better.

Compare this to the more recent John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum which was light on story, but was still an entertaining movie.

The action was alright but was often boring.

In spite of having a big budget, the whole film looks cheap and empty.

We went to the cinema and a couple walked out halfway then another one and another one and so on...

Actually enjoyable .

This was a good film that was entertaining and an original perspective.

Enjoyable movie.

Gemini bland .

I liked the story, the script seemed fine a fun entertaining movie overall.

I watched this movie in 4DX and 3D at the Regal in Time Square, super amped to watch an entertaining film, I fell asleep by the time they got to Budapest in the movie.

A heavy-handed, formulaic melodrama, "Gemini Man" concerns cloning and killing humans without scruples.

I rented this out of sheer boredom.

But the severe speed and brutality makes it a bit more distinct, memorable and breathtaking.

Overall movie feels flat, one-dimensional, uninspiring with at times very visible bad SGI and green screen backgrounds.

Yes it went a bit far with the cloning however I really enjoyed it.

He has her take her clothes off in an encounter so pointless and tame it doesn't even rise to level of T&A.

Good actors but the storyline is very boring.

The story and the dialogue seemed contrived, wooden and predictable.

Ang Lee direction of an action flick is entertaining and exciting.


Was expecting this to be rubbish but I actually enjoyed it very much.

I've seen this movie twice and enjoyed it both times.

Well the HFR 3D was okay, but goddamn the other reviews were true, too many bad, unnecessary dialogue, predictable, story-line was bland.

I thought it was fine, wife walked out bored .

I loved the story, the emotion that was shown in the movie, I loved the way will smith acted and obviously I love the filming of the film, the ending didnt feel right but overall the film is good it contain action scene and the only thing that made me mad that the story was predictable.

If one can turn their intellect down to simmer, crank their willful suspension of disbelief up to redline, and find sufficient charity to overlook the mishmash of tired tropes masquerading as a plot, the film is reasonably entertaining.

It's an entertaining, light movie to occupy a few hours of your night.

Unfortunately for everyone in 2019 we didn't get that, instead we were given a film that is mind numbingly boring with some of the worst CGI I've seen in a long while.

And simply dull.

"Gemini Man" is an entertaining action sci-fi directed by Ang Lee.

For an action movie it seems slow.

This movie is action packed and has a mini twist at the end.

The only redeeming qualities of the movie are the sound, Will Smith's performance, the visual effects (particularly the de-aging effects, however there are moments that doesn't look all that convincing) and the action sequences do have some good cinematography here and there, while everything else like the story, characters, dialogue, music, 70% of the cinematography, the acting from the rest of the cast and the rest of the visual effects that didn't involve the de-aging effects wasn't good to begin with, but i still somehow enjoyed it and i wasn't bored throughout the whole movie, even though it was 1 hour and 57 minutes long.

too bland and insipid ...

The action was solid and was directed wellOverall an entertaining action movie with some good performances with Will Smith being great as always, but overall pretty forgettable action movie with some great moments of acting but overall nothing much else standing out to be overly captivating, memorable or engaging.

It was one of the worst movies with Will Smith.

There are some moments that visual director Ang Lee implements that provide it with excitement albeit insanely ridiculous, but overall it follows all too familiar plotting and formulaic writing that everyone has seen before.

Will Smith lacks his usual charm in this role, serious and boring, acting made awkward by the fact that the film looks like it was shot on a phone, and everything just looks fake.

The right amount of action and it was worth watching.

At the end, the movie is slightly entertaining.

This movie is on my top 5 worst movies list .

Look, I enjoyed it.

After a fairly slick James Bond / Bourne type first half hour, this slips into a somewhat dull father / son story as Smith tries to persuade his younger clone that there is more to life than killing (who'd have known).

I compare all movies to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and The Lord of the Rings Trilogy (worst movies ever made - my opinion - both HGG AND LR deserve negative 100 stars...

The Resolution of the film is fairly decent though its Denouement is blatantly contrived, so "Hollywood".

Definitely a crossed film here, a bit of Fresh Prince of Bell Air meets Will Smith as in Suicide Squad crossed with buddy cop coming of age second chance.

Well, if you are expecting some fast, thrilling on the run action-sci fi movie, you won't get that in this one...

) Anyway, save your money.

So let's get this straight because a lot of these reviews are giving cudos to the digital de-aging & the 2 roles will Smith plays, ok so will Smith plays one role, his character, no digital de-aging or make up de-aging was used, some scenes a younger slimmer actor than will Smith( Victor Hugo) was probably used for the younger will Smith but the face was nothing more than cgi and it wasn't very good for the most part, but a lot of the scenes the entire character of the younger will smith was completely cgi, now all this may sound mean after all the cgi was by WETA, the cgi for smiths younger self was made up purely from data, in some scenes it looks really good for a second or 2 but thats all, it was far too ambitious especially on a movie with a budget of 138 million & as good as the people at WETA are, full realistic cgi face recreation is still not possible especially on that budget, just ask James Cameron, but all said & done it was an OK movie just a bit pointless

Ang Lee directs a wildly entertaining action movie with incredible technology.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead did a well done performance as Danny Zakarweski, a strong hitman who would help Henry to get through the danger, based on the unexpected trust between them.

This is one of the most enjoyable movies I've seen in a year or two.

This is an awesome action packed movie.

Too boring and 1919 not 2019 movie Too expexted Very bad ending It's I hoped to get money back movie 1/10 for Indian escape shot


The main problem lies in the writing, which is far away from being firmly good, even though the film does contain some entertaining action sequences such as the motorcycle chase and Will Smith going toe-to-toe with his younger self.

What's worse is Clive Owen was really uninteresting too.

The story was kinda predictable though, bad company / person makes something good go bad, tries to kill the good guy & in the end the bad guy dies so it does not grip you in that sense.

Action packed for sure and young will looks so good.

What a boring story...

The appearance of an unexpected car manufacturer as one of the sponsors probably was a lovely.

Unwatchable, Will Smith can't save this tedious thriller from his younger self in the dullest clone conspiracy ever.

The plot takes a bit to kick in to full gear, but once it gets rolling, it's a thrilling ride some minor speed bumps.

Boring .

So boring man what a mess this film is it's just crap people do yourself a favour and skip this crap

This is another well polished crap, please save your money and go and see Joker in 2d.

Maybe I enjoyed it because I had no expectations and just let movie do its thing.

But you may feel sorry to see how slow and heavy Will Smith became, and what made that worse is the computerized accelerated scenes for the younger Will Smith while the old Will Smith is in so the difference is noticeable.

Riveting action scenes; developed unusual story line; excellent performance by Will Smith.

The story was uninteresting to me and the plot had a bit of action, but was mostly boring.

the Fresh Prince makes for a bland movie.


Save your money and skip this movie.

But it has so many holes in the story that in my opinion, despite the major effects it's just dull and boring.

Will smiths worst movie.

The characters have no depth, the story is totaly bland and the action in it's best moments is super average.

Some good stunts plot ridiculous utterly predictable

Will Smith is very good as usual, the action scenes are thrilling and there is even some story in between the motorcycle chases.

It's unengaging, the actors themselves seem bored, it looks super cheap and there is no style or flair to any part of the filmmaking.

Gemini Man is an action thriller that delivers some exciting action sequences, set pieces, and a decent plot.

Also, some aspects of it were highly predictable.

Overall gemini man is a very good and entertaining action.

This so-called "actor" is apparently the most boring, one-dimensional, most unimaginative mime who existed during 100 years of filmmaking.

Presently,it's too talky and slow for its own good, though, and is unlikely to change most people's feelings about high frame rate.

Classic predictable Hollywood plot, with Will Smith squared .

Despite some good actors, a talented director and couple of visually striking shots, "Gemini man" was a joyless experience that tries to be deep, but feels empty.

Ho hum .

Well the screenplay is not so sophisticated as it could be, probably because the target audience are teenagers, but there are some interesting action scenes worth watching.

As it is filmed at 120FPS, and in 4K, meaning only a handful of cinemas around the world is able to show its absolutely stunning visual spectacle.

I found the movie very entertaining and I also saw the struggle between the person one has become, the person one chooses to be and the person they wish the had become.

Entertaining action scenes, implausible plot .

Oh I forgot to mention the plot oh yeah this movie has literally no plot its just a clone trying to kill his original thats the plot.

Gemini Man is a uniquely visually thrilling Will Smith does an incredible job playing both the 50 year old Brogan and his clone.

Boring, bad script writing, bland .

Didn't expect it to be a cinematic masterpiece, which it is truly not, but I enjoyed it, the pace was good, effects and acting as well.

The camera work and elements they used were genius and masterpiece worthy, they definitely helped carry this film to be the good and entertaining film it was.

Oh dear all a bit pointless .

The plot and scenes were mostly empty.

The action even felt boring and predicable.

You're gonna waste 2 hours out of your life.

- but the movie was entertaining.

I was expecting to be bored with a ton of dialogue and backstory and did not anticipate significant amounts of action.

There is one intense and exciting climax taking place in a small town with an elite soldiers and an engineered soldier fighting against Henry and Dani (Mary Elizabeth Winstead).

Super bored!

We see Junior on his motorcycle shooting constantly at Henry also on a motorcycle and this is most exciting.

Boring, unoriginal and ultimately unsatisfying.

Save your money .

Special Effects are getting boring .

The pacing of the film quite slow!

The plot is predictable but enjoyable and the special effects are top-notch.

Bored to tears .

The humanity of the movie comes across as well as the action thrills making this movie a well-rounded and intriguing, engrossing experience.

Enjoyed it.

Instead we get this subdued, boring, polite student type character.

The movie also just had a Mundane feeling to it Throughout with no real energy to it.

The chase scenes were superb and imaginative, the story line was interesting (for a change) and the film sets and locations were breathtaking.

Coppola and kubrick wouldn't have made much of a story of this kind, and the type of story that requires intense conflict and ups and downs isn't something lee is good at, and it might have been better done by some great b-movie director.

Some good action scenes and fast paced thrills, on a sour note though, the CGI was horrible

The story itself isn't complex, it's a little empty even.

It has its flaws as all movies do but it´s worth watching.

BUT the script, action, and rush of the film made it extremely predictable and dull.

"Gemini Man" plunges down a predictable path from fade in to fade out.

Yet it's fun visually stunning most of the time, with some unique fight scenes and action sequences that I haven't seen before.

Sure there are a few gripes and small issues, but it was overall fairly entertaining.

Movie had lots of fighting and action but it was very predictable.

The plot for "Gemini Man" is pretty simple on paper, but on film, it's a confusing mess.

It's worth watching, I am just not convinced it is worth paying to see at the movies.

Some of the plot flips are confusing.

You can make all the excuses of needing to watch this in high frame rate or on super special 4DX screen, but when it comes down to it, this movie is just one extended fight sequence with very little plot tying it together.

The visual effects is cool and seeing Will's double acting was what made it worth watching until the end.

The plot doesn't make a lot of sense and is merely a threadbare excuse for action scenes, which are well choreographed and entertaining.

Entertaining and Good Action Scenes .

Some fun moments which are dragged down by pretty bad CGI.

Don't waste your money .

It gives exactly what it promises -- a chance to try new technology with a predictable story concept.

Conclusion: Will Smith keeps picking mediocre movies, I can't recommend you watching this, I was really bored.

Still, it's worth the watch if you've nothing else to watch on a Friday night.

Gemini Man is one of the most unique and innovative movies of all time, filled with emotional and thrilling scenes to be unforgettable.

If you are into the technical side of movies, It is worth watching in the theater in the 3D-HFR format.

All in all, a solid Hollywood action film, it's no masterpiece, but very enjoyable.

This movie had will smith so I thought it was a safe/entertaining action movie.

A bland, boring, script with regular action shots and bad CGI.

The film starts off well and quite hearstopping as we are introduced to Henry (Will Smith) as a hired assassin entertaining his "last" hit, which entices his thoughts of retirement.

I have to say, the movie, no matter how unrealistic the plot is and how often there are wtf moments, still is pretty enjoyable.

Waste of time , Will , we love U , U can do much better !

Enjoyable Movie .

It is too uerile for an adult audience and too boring for a younger one.

The plot was good and the action scenes stunning.

I admit it had some minor plot holes, but the stunning visuals, the excellent work of the two leads and the fact that for the first time I saw a convincing digital character totally compensated that.

They were seriously some of the most entertaining and inventive action i have seen in a long time.

For me, that's self indulgent and lazy.

There wasn't much in way of storyline, it basically just threw you in at the deep end, very predictable as well.

He is boring and one dimensional and he plays Will Smith in ever movie.

Gemini man was rubbish and boring!

Beyond that somehow the Jr. character gets more real as the movie progresses enhancing the story in unexpected ways.

The whole experience was enjoyable and the creativity very much appreciated.

This movie was so predictable it had some reason action sequences ......

What he discovers is that the young man is actually a cloned version of himself(also played by Will Smith using a de aging method) The acting is good,the CGI can be abit odd,but overall I enjoyed it.

They are thrilling and exciting.

Very bad story and waste of money and time i wish if i hadn't watch it with my girl

If you are looking for good action, this movie fits the bill perfectly, my mind kept rushing to Mission Impossible movies where the action scenes are very intense, but the story is basically your run of the mill good guys vs bad guy , which of course is a beaten to death story by now, but I am still surprised that how the director (Ang Lee) still manages to make it entertaining, I never was looking at my watch while seeing the movie (which is a good sign) that the movie is entertaining.

This one, however, was a boring story, that takes something from nowhere to nowhere.

Its entertaining.

Ony thing left for will smith to do to make a movie all about him, have 3 of him, waste of time watching

If you're bored and want some mindless action, this flick may satisfy your itch.

The only thing I wish it had a little more of is a non predictable plot line.

characters were predictable and so were their fates.

The last action scene, is the most intense scene!

The worst movie ever made with stupid and ridiculous animated fighting scenes.

I left the theater after one hour.

Not the best Will Smith movie, but a solid enjoyable flick overall .

But if nothing else, it was fascinating to watch a film with that level of clarity and definition.

If it wasn't for the truly fantastic cast (Will Smith is always impeccable, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Benedict Wong deliver great performances), Gemini Man would easily be one of the absolute worst movies of the year.

The story lacked and was predictable and young Will Smith was just awkward.

To all of our great disappointments, we found the film was not that funny, but instead was a mind-numbingly boring rehash of action clichés mixed with a half-baked sci-fi plot starring a lifeless aging actor who's just trying to stay relevant.

Worth the Watch.

The action sequences of the film are top of the line with some amazing motorcycle stunts and hand to hand fight sequences that are stunning to view.

Breathtaking effects for mediocre story .

Worst movie in 2019 .

All in all, it's extremely predictable.

The writing was lazy, the storyline was predictable and the plot feels meaningless towards the end.

I was on the edge of my seat throughout many of these scenes watching it in 2K 3D at 120 FPS.

Even more fascinating is the fact that the film has been in development hell for upwards of two decades and apparently right now was the best time to give it a release?

It had a strong opening, but then it went slow very quickly.

Some scenes you noticed the CGI, I think it was done really well and a great action packed movie to see.

Great Movie, worth watching it .

Please save your money and see something else.

Was it predictable?

That means it'll be perfect for Netflix when you're bored stiff having blazed through most of their catalogue already.

Dont waste your time...

"Gemini Man" opens with a suspenseful blast in sunny Belgium.

Solid but uninspiring .

GEMINI MAN: I heard this one got some terrible reviews, so this will be a test of my credibility because I thoroughly enjoyed it and heartily recommend it.

Has some fast paced camera action by Ang Lee too.

Overall: Entertaining enough and at the end with Brogan is telling his clone about his prowess it felt typical good time Will Smith.

The worst movie I've seen with U.

The characters were uninteresting and not likeable.

All dramatic plots were short-lived and non-suspenseful.

Definetely not as bad movie as reviews state, 5,4 noo.. i would say this is 7-7.5 action movie.. good action, smoothly rolling plot, nothing special, but still entertaining..

Perfect movie to Fall Asleep On .

Based on the extremely bland trailers I had grave fears for the quality of this movie.

Another hugely detrimental aspect to Gemini Man's enjoyment levels is that once we become aware of what a cloned Brogan means and the reasoning behind why this dastardly creation exists, you wonder why we should be against it, making the whole point of Brogan's mission rather pointless as we end up curiously siding with Clive Owen's hammy "bad guy" Clay Verris who really truly does kind of have a point.

Clive Owen is solid but uninspiring.

I was expecting a great fight between Brogan and Verris to compensate bad movie and dull actions effects, that fight never occurred.

boring and weak movie...

On the plus side I managed to stay awake for the whole film.

His lips don't move naturally, the eyes are wider than they should be, tears in his eyes look fake and the acting is slightly too slow, probably to make it possible to make Will Smith look that much younger.

It was too bland with absolutely nothing standing out and it could've been wholly replaced.

The story is predictable and the characters are entirely one dimensional.

The music was suspenseful & exciting & the movie had an exciting "Spy" Thriller feel to it, there's nothing too violent or brutal so it's (12) rating was a nice change from all the violent flicks I've seen recently, this was simply a fantastic Action Thriller with abit of science fiction on the side & an excellent performance by Will Smith & some Amazing & spectacular action scenes, edge of the seat kind of action.

Although they play it safe it does excite, it does draw you in, and it is enjoyable.

Why use the technological advancements for a story that is so bland and unoriginal?

Don't waste your money.


Dull as dishwater .

Was it a total waste of money and time?

Very predictable and painfully boring cgi is bad in the fight scenes vs himself / the dirt bike scene.

Awful script, dull done before story.

Performances were unconvincing and bland even though some great actors were on screen.

This is a OK movie and actually has some very fascinating stuff.

Generic, predictable, and filled with almost offensive exposition.

Will Smith's impressive performance in both his roles, the stylish action sequences, some intriguing twists and a fast-paced story are the highlights.

The villain is too grey and the resolution too predictable.

Conclusion: Will Smith keeps picking mediocre movies, I can't recommend you watching this, I was really bored.

Gemini Man is a good, fast paced, globetrotting thriller that will keep you engaged though you won't find too many surprises here.

"GEMINI MAN" is a perfect Action Thriller that's also a great popcorn movie & that's just an engrossing & totally entertaining thrill ride.

Regardless, it's still very much enjoyable in terms of both plot and action.

I had high hopes for this film, but it fails to deliver in just about every way - you never feel connected to the characters, the story is cluttered and messy, the dialogue bland and the use of green screens throughout many of the shots are quite obvious.

And if it's true it is even sometimes predictable, especially at the end, it's far enough for the kind of movie Gemini Man is.

Unfortunately, "Gemini Man" boils down to a conventional second-rate thriller with a contrived gimmick.

Quite Enjoyable.

entertaining movie .

It's a bold and exciting experiment .

Good action flick, predictable story.

The action scenes were enjoyable and they sort of touched on the morality of cloning but the story was pretty cliche and nothing really new.

The film was so unbelievably flat that you wondered why 3D was used at all, with dull, dark photography that was boring.

It ends abruptly, utterly disregarding the only interesting plot point (still very predictable), by not developing it any further than one sequence.

Without high hopes about the movie, I quite enjoyed it wihout much care on the flat storyline.

Felt flat and monotone.

When the muzzles pop I found it really startling in a good way and the chases I found genuinely toe-curling and tense, the 3D layering it front and centre; This is all compounded by Lee's exciting first person shots and creative action shooting; Junior's dynamism and little stings of dispatching armoured guards or Smith dragging an injured Winstead as she continues to shoot.

Simply boring .

The characters have no depth, the story is totaly bland and the action in it's best moments is super average.

Probably the worst movie I have seen this decade.

It's fast paced and the visual effects are excellent.

Very thrilling when Will Smith comes across a younger version of him.

There were only about 2 or 3 parts of the movie worth watching and those were only the parts in the trailer i mean there were also some other good parts that weren't in the trailer that were good too, other than that all of the movie was super boring and it felt like it was for kids which is why i guess it was p3=13, i wish it was rated r because if it was then it would have been better, the whole idea of the clone is brilliant and i saw the video on how hard it was to make a clone for the movie and all the effects that were used and it felt like terminator a little bit.

Watch only if bored and have booze on hand.

And some of the sequences are very well done, but it is such a cliche that they have an unattractive short-haired woman.

Boring from start to the time you walk out of the movie theater, the script makes no sense, you better off tear a 10 dollar bill to the toilet, at least you won't waste the time at the movie theater.

This movie was really bland, boring and cliche.

However the Ang Lee-Will Smith combination was enough to overcome any doubts and I am glad I watched this movie since I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed it since it has some amazing action scenes including a edge of the pants motorcycle chase.

Its kinda boring.

I ended up being bored halfway through the movie because there is no real point to it other than the relentless fighting.

I thought the action and plot were exciting and fairly riveting.

The 8 represents how much I genuinely enjoyed it, and not how much I expect other people to enjoy it.

😴🤐 Nothing new on the story, 2 clons and that's it, predictable.

I think in time it will grow to be a classic it's generic script and stunning visuals should age well.

Gemini Man suffers from a major problem; it's boring.


Not a bad film at all, enjoyable and well worth a watch.

Clive Owen plays a forgettable cliché villain.

The ending is predictable and that can be ok if the rest of the movie lives up to the promise.

The Final Bill: Entertaining movie that will keep you on edge with classic Will Smith moments.

Thanks to some strong work by Smith and its better set pieces, Gemini Man partly succeeds at overcoming its bland plot and occasionally iffy visuals.

I was impressed with the look of the younger Will Smith, Junior, and the clever camera work, when they were both on-screen together, was unique but the predictable storyline and extremely average acting, let the movie down.

Unfortunately, this movie bored me to the point that I started looking at these IMDB review while the final action is happening.

I expected an entertaining action flick and that's exactly what I got.

Don't waste your time .

This movie kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time and had a completely different ending from what I was expecting.

Now Ang Lee knows a lot about action movies after his Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, and the action scenes are totally immersed and the direction is beautiful.

It's fun and entertaining, solid cast!

I watch a lot of b-movies and trash movies for entertainment because they tend to succeed in being unpredictable, unintentionally hilarious and even unintentionally arty.

Excellent and Entertaining movie .

Entertaining .

You're lackluster, boring and one dimensional and having two of you on screen is not going to make you two dimensional when all you can do is play the same role over and over and over.

But the movie has a dreary look that looks more boring that anything.

Predictable same old same .

It may sound appealing to have two Smiths in the same movie, but you'd wish they'd went right back to the genesis of this project and change up the whole DNA of this dull, almost lifeless, big-budget failure.

Apart from all that the plot of this film over-complicates itself and is an absolute bore.

The script was laughably poor and the plot was predictable; a cat and mouse game across the world and something we've seen many times before.

The conversation in the film feel so weird and boring!

Character depth is non-existent, the story fails to be interesting and is often pointless and the action sequences are mostly let downs.

The casts has great chemistry, smart actions and awesome breathtaking scenes especially Columbia.

Will smith still proves he can hold his own and there was a lot of tension and fast paced action which was great as well.

Predictable .

As generic and predictable as it could be.

It's mind blowing knowing that these super spies, clones, actually exist and you may past by them in the street or supermarket.

It still managed to touch on the (ethical) issues of cloning in a way though and was very enjoyable.

It's overly long and has a slow build that will put you to sleep.

As much as I adore Will Smith, this movie tops Bad Boys 1 as probably his worst movie so far.

Amazingly Boring .

And I highly recommend it to you.

I did find the character of Will Smith's Gemini to be compelling and is what I found to be the best part of the movie.

It was predictable and unfulfilling.

It was a very boring time to be hand despite the effects and technical aspects and a hardworking cast.

The whole clone thing was really pointless, the movie does not go deeper into the subject, more like action porn.

A well made and acted movie, just boring as hell.

Enjoyed it very much.

Yes the trailer gives it away but it was thoroughly entertaining, the plot made sense and Will Smith did a pretty good job.

Good action scenes, entertaining.

However, the action was very entertaining in majority of the cases and even saved the film, probably due to its unreal physics.

Surprisingly entertaining .

But I really enjoyed it, lots of fun non pretentious action.

Instead, it's an entertaining enough action flick with a wasted sci-fi hook.

It's note deep, but actually Will Smith made it kind of cool and very enjoyable.

Action packed thriller .

I've read other reviews before watching it and thought to myself maybe I'll check it out but it's pretty slow and boring, Action scenes couldn't even save it.

but anyway now since past this film got made starting will smith as lead role witch i like will smith as actor Bad boys 1&2 films, Independence day, enemy of state, Ali, I, Robot, Hitch, I Am Legend, Hancock, Suicide Squad, Bright now tothis film witch i did enjoy and seeing this in 3D wasn't bad experience but 3D isn't that special, to this film it's pretty enjoyable the story and script was good, Clive Owen was good in this film as well as villain.

Total waste of money on CGI .

Action was OK and story line predictable.

If you're looking for an enjoyable two hours of action escapism, I'd definitely recommend Gemini Man.

Plays the same character, same seriousness, same demeanor, same monotone speech, same glazed eyes, same, same, same as every movie WS has ever done.

The subtle difference sums up and finally makes me think that yeah, the plot is so so, but it is super entertaining to see the real fight.

From then on the film becomes a boring and prefictable action flick where a character survives flying off a speeding bike and then being slammed in the face by the back wheel off another bike and he has some minor scratches and bruising.

Boring Drivel .

in this decidedly magnanimous, & completely - Riveting - Picture .

Despite its video game-style narrative (there's even a first person POV oner in a key moment), Gemini Man is arguably more successful - or, at the very least, more entertaining - than Lee's prior HFR filmmaking experiment, Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk.

Mawkish slow scenes & appalling CGI.

Worst movie EVER.

Even Clive Owen, normally a dull actor to me, comes deliciously alive here.

Neither Ang Lee's innovative HFR technology or Will Smith's digital de-aging can save this lame, inert and frustratingly pointless thriller from being an utter high-concept mi .

What a waste of time .

Sure, the movie is watchable and does have some good enough action sequences, but the storyline was just too mundane for me.

Its very predictable, we have seen this story over and over again in various movies.

It was entertaining from start to finish.

The fight scene in the beginning between both Henry and Junior was intense and the best fight scene of the movie in my opinion.

The acting was awkward, the writing was awkward, the whole movie was just one big confusing awkward movie.

Well worth watching .

Boring .

What I just watched was bizarre, flawed, thin, boring, predictable and overall really bad.

The story-line was quickly predictable.


This fantastic action Thriller was expertly directed by Ang Lee, he made one of the best Marvel films ever in my opinion with his "HULK" & here he's crafted a super smart stylish & exciting Thriller with an incredible duel performance by Will Smith.

Stunts were entertaining, weaponizing motorbikes Jacky Chan style is fun to see.

This film is the combination of an uninteresting script, bad directing, terrible acting and poor editing.

Average action movie gets ruined by unwatchable special effects.

I say - don't waste your time on this, if you are a fan of Will skip this and go see his better movies,

I really like some of Will Smith's movies - Bad Boys, I, Robot, I Am Legend, Enemy Of The State, to name a few, but the most recent movies he made are boring and redundant and sometimes even plain bad ones.

The movie becomes boring and predictable and there are hardly any twists (or) surprise elements in the movie.


Waste of time .

Entertaining .

If you'd like to waste some time while in line at the DMV or Panera Bread, here you go, other wise I wasted my life watching.

Entertaining action movie .

The film is only entertaining for the action scenes which was really surprising and was pretty cool with a score that made it more exciting.

Dull and Boring .

Whilst the premise is rather intriguing, it's hard to pull of the execution in a strong, coordinated fashion.

That said it is carried by Will Smith's charisma and ultimately it is an enjoyable experience in a throwaway sense.

Regarding HFR's use in Gemini Man, again, it's mixed bag: The motion of the action, the way people move, it's all genuinely spectacular, it's the best I've ever seen, it's delicious, and lights from muzzle flashes and tracer rounds, and just the movement of everything within the frame is breathtaking.

I enjoyed it, as did most others i watched it with.

I had zero expectations for Gemini Man and the movie delivered just that because unfortunately, having two Will Smiths doesnt mean that the film will be twice as exciting.

However, Will Smith's performance along with his CGI counterpart (that foretells a revolutionary transformation in how the role of movie stars are managed in the future) do offer some very emotive and relational elements that offer this movie a distinctive and compelling storyline.

The stories about the main characters who face their clones, are one of the most thrilling stories to explore in the books, television series, comic books, movies and video games.

Sadly, the reviewers are right that the plot and characters are very simplistic, with a predictable and low developed plot shoved into the run time, where focus on action leads to hasty wrap ups and a sloppy finish for this reviewer.

I thought it was super entertaining.

I feel my reviews are becoming repetitive but once again we have a really predictable film.

It made me nearly fall asleep, my friend next to me fell asleep.

I hated every little bit of it, such a boring silly story that makes great actors look like beginners it's a waste of time and soul.

It was quite fascinating seeing the older and younger Will Smiths playing off each other during several key scenes, as the latter questions the meaning of his existence.

I did enjoy seeing Will Smith in another movie and there were certain aspects of the film that were entertaining.

I gave this movie a 10/10 because I really enjoyed it and want to see the rating go higher because it deserves it.

There are no ideas, no plot, no intrigue.

" Director Ang Lee literally and ambitiously navigates O-Sensei's Mastery journey in unexpected resolve.

Unexpected .

Still Entertaining Though .

While not completely flawless, the CGI is very impressive and equals that seen in most Marvel movies today from its de-aging process to its intense fights and action sequences.

That is thrilling because it is so real.

Boring dialogues paired with flat characters.

After the initial novelty of him talking to and fighting his clone wore off, it got quite soppy and tedious towards the end.

Better save the money for next action film "Dark Fate"!
