Project Power Review

project power review

The movie is not a superhero movie that you are expecting. I lot of people, including me, have high expectations from the movie. But it turns out to be just an average movie with an impactful social message. Jamie Foxx was as usual great in his role. He makes himself immersed in the character.

His time on the screen is the only reason for many to watch this movie. Dominique Fishback has also kept her role in place, But she was not able to hold her emotions well. Project Power has the resources and talent, But still, The movie was not made into a masterpiece. The closest resemblance to a movie that has a similar feel, I would look towards Deadpool. And the close comparison of both the movie will leave Project Power Dwarfed.

The movie is filled with cliches and over-excited music. Project Power does not bring anything new to the table; And plays the Old Good cop, Bad cop. Art’s, Personal life is shown very vividly, But it lacks the intention of the movie subject. The story of the movie and film synopsis seems great. But the execution of the movie is emotion-centric, Focusing on giving profound social messages, and cliche jokes. The film is a one-time watch movie.
