Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Jamie Foxx are coming together for Project Power on Netflix! What could the two possibly accomplish together?
The upcoming movie has quite a ridiculous sci-fi concept but before you judge anything, remember how Old Guard was such a huge success when it came out?
Who’s who in Project Power?
Netflix is taking it up the task of adding even more amazing actors by bringing in Dominique Fishback from The Deuce, The Hate U Give as a certain character named Robin.
Robin is a shrewd but also reluctant student that dreams of landing a rap career but reality pushes her to deal just to help her ailing single mother.
She isn’t really the type of girl to try her own items though. She is friends with Frank, played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
The actor plays a local cop that’s also her loyal customer and also her de facto bodyguard.
Oh yeah, MGK pops in as well.
What’s so interesting about the story?
When Frank is not trying to keep Robin off of the streets, he’s actually trying to trace and crack down a new narcotic running all through New Orleans.
The type of chem-lab mystery that actually looks like a small Edison bulb and turns people into something in the middle of the Hulk or a random X-Men.
With a single dose, people can become just like a human flamethrower, or possibly impenetrable by bullets?
The truth is, nobody really knows! Project Power gives a really Lucy or Limitless vibe but with a twist.
Now here’s where Jamie Foxx comes in. Art, played by Fox, is a sort of lone-wolf type of vigilante who the authorities think is the true force behind the Power.
Although he sometimes seems desperate to sniff up the root source while everyone is trying to protect it, he’s smart enough to know that Robin can help him out.
Foxx, the ambitious Art, really does portray a strong charisma throughout the movie giving a solid performance to the character.
The entire movie is quite peculiar but also gritty at the same time. You’ll have to indulge yourself in a world that these supernatural narcotics exist!
The Jamie Foxx and Joseph Gordon-Levitt appearance in this movie really spice up the whole feel with not just good acting but interesting character choice.
The movie will be available on Netflix this coming August 14. It should be an easy watch and who knows, it could be as good as Old Guard.
What else does Netflix have in store?
Netflix has a whole arsenal of movies and series that might be a good watch.
There’s an upcoming series called The Great Heist that’s supposedly a combination of Narcos and Money Heist.
The Great Heist is about a bank robbery that happened in Columbia. Oh yeah, it’s coming out on August 14 as well!
This robbery isn’t just any robbery, this robbery is considered the greatest robbery of the century! For the best viewing experience of Project Power, you might want to check out the Sony X750H.
