Gemini Man

Revealing mistake: A major selling point of the movie is the CGI technology used to de-age Will Smith. The effect works for the most part of the movie, including scenes in daylight, but in the last handful of minutes, maybe because of the plain 'happy-ending' light used, maybe for budget reasons, the face of Junior is thoroughly unconvincing, with a dramatic drop in quality in textures and modelization.

Revealing mistake: A SWAT Team is conducting an exercise. At one point a smoke grenade is rolling on the ground, going under a vehicle, and then rising in the air prior to another shot showing it exploding. A smoke grenade does not rise in the air prior to exploding. What occurred here is that the scene was filmed in reverse (or with the camera upside down), with someone throwing the smoke grenade down from the vehicle and having it roll along the ground towards the camera. The scene was then straightened out in editing to give the impression it was rolling away from the camera. (00:48:05)


Revealing mistake: During the drill that follows Junior's return 'home' in Georgia, the extras who flee from the building and run in the street split in two, left and right of the camera position (one guy even slows down his run quite obviously to avoid tripping the offscreen equipment).

Revealing mistake: Henry is being chased by Junior on his second bike. In a POV shot as Junior crosses the bridge, you can see he is dodged by a guy wearing a yellow baseball bat and a red Hawaiian shirt. Only, in the reverse angle (the bike coming out of the bridge) the cap stays yellow but the shirt turned inexplicably grey. (00:39:30)

Plot hole: While a tracker can certainly make it so that Junior knows where Brogan is at a given moment, it is impossible for Junior to know where exactly the plane is going to land and be lying in wait, with Brogan walking right past him. Junior would have to be well ahead of the plane in order to do that, and know exactly what direction Brogan would walk to cut him off and ambush him.

More quotes from Gemini Man

Question: At the end of the movie, Will Smith (the older one) has a present for his son/brother/younger self; his official documents he apparently did not have. Passport, driving license and birth certificate; he congratulates him on his name choice. And he gives those to him as Junior is walking out of the college campus, which he obviously is already frequenting and where he made many friends. I know the US system allows undocumented students, but can you even enroll without the most basic ID? In particular since he is in Georgia, which reportedly is one of the strictest states about it.

Answer: I worked at a university for over 30 years. A person cannot enroll in an accredited university or college without proper identification, educational history, transcripts, test scores, financial information, etc.
