Gemini Man ★★

A discombobulating experience, but one that is certainly of interest for cineastes. Shot digitally at a frame rate of 120fps, modified for 3D on ARRI Alexa cameras mounted on STEREOTEC 3D Rigs, with Smith giving a motion-capture performance as the younger clone, rather than being de-aged in post-production.

All of this is in service of a script that is basic at best and risible at worst. In regards to its director, it’s unclear why one of the great humanists of modern-day cinema has dedicated the last 10 years of his career to emulating something as juvenile as Avatar (2009).

Quite baffling.
