Honest Film Reviews!


Welcome back ladies and gentlemen, hope you all had wonderful summer vacations during these truly trying times. Hopefully this review can take your off any problems if only momentarily. Let's jump straight in shall we...

POJECT POWER is exactly as advertised!

A summer blockbuster, fun and full of action. Great choreography, exceptional CGI and a slew of one liners only Jamie Foxx can deliver. I appreciate the film staying true to its identity. What I mean by this is that it didn't try to be something it wasn't and because of this, I believe they set themselves up perfectly for a sequel. Perhaps even to be better than the original, which as we all know is not easily done.

The only knock on the film I would say is the antagonist and their backstory. It was weak, they left holes and was poorly explained/executed. I won't dive too deep as I don't want to ruin the film, if you have yet to see it. However, it would have worked better if perhaps they just remained a mystery altogether. They could have done better... much better.

When they make the sequel (if the numbers do well and I believe they will), they must and I mean MUST have a strong villain. Not just as a character but the actor they cast will be vital to its success. Keep in mind, whomever you cast will be competing against Jamie Foxx and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. What makes Christopher Nolans Batman trilogy so compelling is not just the genius filmmaking but the villains, Heath and Tom Hardy are by far two of the all time greats.

I truly believe they could have turned just a moderately decent, fun summer blockbuster into an epic film, primed for a sequel and perhaps a trilogy. I also believe the film can and will be saved.

Overall we gave PROJECT POWER an 80%, certified DFF! DOPE! FRESH and FUN!

Enjoy and see ya'll next week!
