Gemini Man

Gemini Man ★★★

Wrote about this here.

One thing I couldn't work in: there's a quick shot of Benedict Wong up at night, keeping watch with his pet toucan. Literally every other seemingly incidental detail in the script is inevitably a plant: Will Smith kills a bee and says he has an allergy to bees, which turns out to be a setup for...well, nevermind; Mary Elizabeth Winstead drinks a boilermaker, which prompts to Smith to note it's a cop drink and her to disclose her dad was in law enforcement, etc. But the toucan isn't important: it doesn't squawk when bad guys are approaching the compound, or fly in their faces, or ever appear again. It's just a funny one-shot detail for its own sake, which I appreciate.
