Synopsis

On the streets of New Orleans, word begins to spread about a mysterious new pill that unlocks superpowers unique to each user. The catch: You don’t know what will happen until you take it. While some develop bulletproof skin, invisibility, and super strength, others exhibit a deadlier reaction. But when the pill escalates crime within the city to dangerous levels, a local cop (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) teams with a teenage dealer (Dominique Fishback) and a former soldier fueled by a secret vendetta (Jamie Foxx) to fight power with power and risk-taking the pill in order to track down and stop the group responsible for creating it.

Initial thoughts

What would you risk for five minutes of pure power? This looks fantastic. Great to see Jamie Foxx (Baby Driver) and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (7500) working together. I could really use a good action, crime, science fiction, superhero, thriller film right now.

Quick review

I thought the movie was entertaining.  Pretty cool concept. The special effects and graphics were very well done.  I really enjoyed the idea behind the pill.  When you take a drug it gives you a superpower that’s unique to your DNA.   The movie plays on how people could abuse these superpowers.  Overall, a decent film to watch on a Friday night.
