Project Power; Pills and Superpowers – Jamie Foxx Movie Review
Project Power is a superhero movie starring Jamie Foxx, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Dominique Fishback directed by Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost.
Project Power follows Art (Jamie Foxx) and Robin (Dominique Fishback) as they try to seek the source of an exciting peculiar drug called Power. The drug gives the users extra-ordinary abilities. In most superhero movies, there`s always a permanent genetic mutation that changes the characters. Project Power however provides an unusual twist. The abilities are seen after the capsule is taken, last for 5 minutes, and the powers are an absolute surprise. This is such an intriguing concept!
Ex-soldier Art (Jamie Foxx) is presented as the source of the thrilling drug. In a turn of events, we learn is desperate to find the creators of the drug and make them pay for kidnapping his daughter. So, the movie goes down the same old path of good guys vs bad guys. Was it entertaining? Oh Yes, it was! But I can’t help but wonder what else the drug can do, why it has such varied effects on each user yet they are consuming the same drug…
That said, the movie is extremely entertaining and captivating. I can say that Dominique Fishback and Jamie Foxx are the movie`s greatest assets. Dominique is a gem to watch, dealing to keep her family afloat. She also hopes to become a rapper. She spits some bars for Art during a quiet moment which feels so honest and sentimental.
The cinematography is great and so are the stunts of Power Project. The opening scene is captivating as Jamie Foxx wrestles with a man-made of fire. Also, where a woman turns into ice in a reinforced glass as there is an ongoing fight. The scene on the ship is also captivatingly colourful with the use of special effects.
Overall, Project Power is a great movie to watch from Netflix. In as much as it leaves some questions unanswered. Additionally, Dominque Fishback and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are funny and were great to watch on screen.
