Project Power released on Netlfix on August 14, 2020. The superhero-action movie is directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman. The movie is about the street drug ‘power pill’ and its consequences on the lives of an officer, dealer, and a father. The movie is entertaining, to say the least, and it’s a shame that it did not get a theater release.
Project Power stars Joseph Gordon Levitt as officer Shaver, who likes to take power pills to perform better at work. Dominique Fishback stars as Robin, a student cum dealer who’s trying to make money for her mother. Lastly, Jamie Foxx completes the main star cast as Art, who’s searching for his daughter.
As the plot turns out, power pill is not as fun as it seems to be and have side-effect such as drying off the skin. The movie has received majorly positive feedback and is expected to do well in terms of its $85 million budget. The actors have performed amazingly and the movie does not lack in the entertainment department.
However, the action packed science-fiction falls short in terms of imagination and story arc. Netflix Project Power does not present the audience with a storyline that unheard of or uncommon. In fact, the story is quite mainstream with no character arc. Overall, the movie is good if your are looking for a fun time nevertheless.
