Gemini Man Movie Review (Cert 12) and 2 x DVD Giveaway (sent by Paramount)

Gemini Man is available to Download & Keep from today, 3rd February, and will be out on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD from 17th February. Paramount Home Entertainment's newest release is an action thriller starring Will Smith, which will keep you on your toes from beginning to end.

Suitable for viewers aged around 12+ because of the peril and danger which the main character faces, Ang Lee's latest movie is packed with epic fight scenes and some groundbreaking visual effects - Will Smith with Will Smith features quite heavily and it's very well done.

The story follows retired hitman Henry Brogan, forced to go on the run because he is being hunted by a keen, highly skilled young assassin determined to catch his target.

I don't want to give away too much of the storyline, as there are twists and turns throughout, but Henry Brogan is an assassin who almost botches his last job and decides it's time to retire. He rents a house boat and settles back, but very quickly realises he's being watched, and his life is in danger.

Henry attempts to escape along with the agent originally sent to watch him, who is now in danger herself. He is tracked by an assassin who almost equals him in skill, but is younger and faster. I don't think it's giving too much away to say that he discovers this is a younger version of himself.... who is he? Where did he come from? And who sent him?

Gemini Man is actually a bit slow-going in parts and lost the attention of a couple of my family in the middle 3rd. It speeds up again in the final 3rd, and actually has a lot of depth underneath the 'action movie' frontage. It's not Will Smith's finest piece of acting, and a couple of times the CGI is 'uncanny valley-obvious', but overall I felt it was very well done.

Bonus features on the Digital, Blu-ray and 4K Combo Pack discs include an alternate opening, deleted scenes and clips showing how Ang Lee's use of CGI and live action gave us a very impressive 'young Will Smith'. In a Paramount First, the 4K Ultra HD Disc Presents the Film in 60FPS (Frames-Per-Second), along with an exclusive Visual Effects Featurette in 60FPS
