No movie has ever been higher-concept than this: Today-aged Will Smith versus CGI-young Will Smith! It’s the future of film in an anemic, tedious, ironically dated spy-action shell. Bafflingly awful.
Nothing matters in this literal adolescent-male power fantasy, a cheesy mishmash of nonsense and low stakes. Anyone who needs at least a bit of meat in their superhero tales will be disappointed.
Keeps trying to fly off into potentially fascinating directions and then getting yanked back into a mushy mediocrity…
They’ve promised us that this will be the last Shrek film, and please let it be true.
