This a typical mass produced movie by netflix. Nothing special, just had to make another movie with a good idea and typical non-artistic execution. I wonder sometimes how they choose their directors. Is it just who is available from college?

They get great actors and just embarres them with what they have to work with. They are mass producing B movies.

Nothing really stands out here. Average story, average performance by actors, weak world building, average action scenes. Just average film.

It's astounding that you can have a film in which a pill gives you superpowers but still ends up being absolutely rubbish, how's that even possible? Poorly executed in every aspect.

Number one in the UK, the number of times I've fallen for that one. Project Power is not going to be a film that will live you for days, you won't want to buy it on blu ray or collect memorabilia. However, if you want almost two hours of pretty well made nonsense, then you may just enjoy this, I'm not a huge lover of this particular genre, so perhaps I'm not the best judge, but I didn't switch it off, or skip through it, so that's a positive.

The story is very much x men territory, with some modern day drug problems thrown into the mix, Jamie Foxx is good value as always.

It is entertaining enough, but has b movie vibes, 6/10.

I was expecting this movie to be a marvellous sci-fi action movie which is dark and uses its R rating to its advantage, but it was a huge disappointment the action scenes are executed poorly you barely understand what's happening and the movie doesn't feel mature because of a Dominique Fishback's character Robin whereas she does best with what she was given to be truthful but the writing for her character (basically she is that annoying kid who goes places where they are not supposed to).

I don't know how Netflix can get such star power Jamie Foxx and Joseph Gordon-Levitt they are the reason why I thought this movie is going to be something great. Also, Casey Neistat has a cameo in this movie which I was excited for and he is in an action scene which was probably the worst action scene which I have seen in a while.

All in all, this movie doesn't deliver you don't get a single good action scene, the characters don't feel fleshed out and they wasted something that could have been a good concept and if executed well we could have had an excellent sci-fi action movie.

Started off good. Film has style and initially keeps you engaged. But getting half way in, there's too much subplot, too much meaningless waffle - the movie just needs to cut that junk out. Got a little boring around halfway through and a little confusing in places.

How did Joseph and Jamie get talked in to doing this rediculous movie.

If you've got a rough life, quit school, sell drugs, dream of becoming a rap star. That's the message.

This could have been an awesome movie, too bad the wrong people influenced the script and directing.

Decent acting, really good CG, meh plot. Don't expect to be blown away or anything, but if you go in just wanting to be entertained with some fun action and cool powers, it delivers.

This is wasted potential.

The concept, certain special effects could be a foundation of a multi-sequel exciting series.

The movie's direction and editing is absolutely horrible, just horrible. We get 3-minute uninterrupted scenes of a teenager rapping, but a shooting scene so haphazardly edited that you have no idea who the good/bad guys are. Even as picture ended I have very little idea what is going on.

Pros: Concept: People take pill gives them temporary superpowers unknown before you take the pill. Gives the movie a different take on the mutant craze.

Special Effects: Varies, but one special effect with the invisible man is off the charts and almost single-handily gave the movie an extra star.

Cons: Direction: All over the place, bad writing, bad characters, just bad. Jamie Foxx and Joseph Gordon Leavitt can be excellent actors, but here there is no material to work with.

Editing: Long scenes of nothing, edited scenes of the action you want to see. Too often you just saw bullets fly, and people fall without knowing(or caring) who died.

Writing: You can't have stupid one-liners in the middle of murderous violence. I can't watch Marvel movies for this reason and they are PG-13 and geared toward teenagers and fanboys. Doing it in R is even more stupid and removes any pretense of tension.

I was debating between 4 and 5 stars, but if there was a sequel I would not watch. Four stars it is.

Special F/X is quite good especially the scene with the "Human Torch" but thats how far it goes other than that annoying kid and confusing plot. Best watched with the forward button at 4x or dont waste your time on this snoozefest.
