Project Power ★★½

I had fun watching this – although I don’t think it makes enough of an intriguing premise, tying its pills-that-cause-temporary-superpowers in with a rote ‘secret government experiment’ plot that never properly coalesces. It’s also interesting to see an action film set in New Orleans, for a change, but my word do they ram that setting down your throat at every available opportunity. All three leads are decent and I guess with the splatter effects and breathless speed this is like a modern equivalent of something Cannon might have produced and released during the 80s... and I’m all for that.
