WHAT WOULD YOU RISK FOR 5 MINUTES OF PURE POWER?
In New Orleans, a police detective (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is hunting a former soldier (Jamie Foxx), who’s actually looking for his missing daughter. An original superhero tale presenting a world where a drug in the shape of a pill provides its user with five minutes worth of superhuman powers. A fun concept that offers different outcomes depending on who’s taking the pill. But even though there’s tension near the end, when the disparate leading characters join forces to combat the bad guys, the film as a whole is sluggish from the start.
