Project Power resembles a Tamil movie “Irumugan” starred Chiyaan Vikram and Nayanthara in a prominent role who were in search of the source of a drug inhaler which gives unlimited strength for five minutes. When I heard this that Netflix was going to do the movie with Henry Joost and, Ariel Schulman who has given various movies like Paranormal Activity and many short movies, planned to add this movie in the watchlist. The movie is released on 14th August 2020. Jamie Foxx, Joseph Gorden-Levitt, and Dominique Fishback played a lead role in the movie. The movie has a runtime of 1hr 52mins which was gone in a swish.


Project Power is happening in the city of New Orleans, it is a Louisiana city on the Mississippi River, near the Gulf of Mexico. Nicknamed the "Big Easy," it's known for its round-the-clock nightlife, vibrant live-music scene and spicy, singular cuisine reflecting its history as a melting pot of French, African and American cultures. On the streets of New Orleans, word begins to spread about a mysterious new pill that unlocks superpowers unique to each user. The hold of the movie is: 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 intensifies crime within the city too dangerous levels, a local cop named Frank (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) teams with a teenage pill dealer Robin (Dominique Fishback) and a former soldier Art (Jamie Foxx) fueled by a secret vendetta  to fight power with power, risk taking the pill in order to track down the source and to stop the group responsible for creating it.


Frank - Has a bullet proof skin when he taken The Pill.


The screenplay has done its part in a frenzied way by holding the viewer's attention towards the screen with the different reactions of pills and holding the suspense of Art’s power and about his daughter. The cinematography has given an aura of feeling the power within ourselves was really spellbinding, the way they show the glowing pills, the effects carried into humans’ body when taken, the fight sequence, Especially the climax scene with the mixture of rain and the radiation power was astounding. The entire movie was saved from drowning only by the cast and the visualization. The movie has kept its pace from the start to the end, we will have a feeling of numbness sitting in the same position for two hours because of missing goosebumps scenes.


The acting of Jamiee Foxx as Ex-soldier and Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a local New Orleans cop was conceivable. I was expecting more from these two, but due to the soggy writing, we missed to get a wonderful output. Dominique Fishback as Robin: her acting was appreciable. Music and background score drive the screenplay till the end but not touched great to appreciate. The movie is encoded with Dolby Atmos, but only a few things can be realized in Atmos. Considering the surround sounds, take "The Extraction” movie, it has fun-filled with Atmos which will give you an amazing experience.


Overall, the movie has illogical things but it will not make us to skip the movie, Project Power was one time watchable with no expectations.
