Project Power (2020)​

R | 1h 53min | Action, Crime, Sci-Fi | 14 August 2020 (USA)

On the streets of New Orleans, word begins to spread about a mysterious new pill that unlocks superpowers unique to each user. The catch: 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 escalates crime within the city to dangerous levels, a local cop (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) teams with a teenage dealer (Dominique Fishback) and a former soldier fueled by a secret vendetta (Jamie Foxx) to fight power with power and risk taking the pill in order to track down and stop the group responsible for creating it.

6.5 out of 10 stars.
I liked this film. It was well-made and entertaining, kinda gritty. A different take on the ole superhero genre. Imagine anybody could become a super power anytime but with unpredictable results. Some might become superheroes, some might become supervillains. Now, imagine yer a cop trying to stop people from getting the drug.
Interesting tale worth a watch or two.
If you love anything having to do with superheroes or super powers, buy it. If not, I suggest you rent it first. Its not a waste of money like most films nowadays.
