The saddest thing about Gemini Man is that unlike The Tingler with its buzzing seats, ... or Avatar with its awe inspiring 3D, there is nothing that will carry on in history about this film. It exists to be forgotten.
Gemini Man aspires to be deeper than your average action flick with an obvious Freudian message about how our worst enemy is ourselves...what it all amounts to, however, is a throwaway genre exercise disguised as a technological experiment.
A cloned human is created by no god, but a human body needs a soul to animate it. Nature abhors a vacuum. What kinds of entities will creep in and animate that human clone are stories the horror genre will address in the future, but this is a good start.
Yes, it takes a while to acclimate to the video-y sheen, but those willing to take the plunge will likely not be disappointed by this pleasant, agreeably silly flick that did not merit its critical drubbing...
It is embarrassing that a movie with this much star power with this much money being poured into the attempts at visual spectacle couldn't spare a pittance for a script doctor to clean up the horrific dialogue.
