Reviews: Project Power (2020)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: …the mythology is muddled and presented with murkily edited, dark imagery. What it does have is a breakthrough performance from Domique Fishback…On the whole there’s a little too much going on in “Project Power” which leaves the vast conspiracy that drives it without enough oxygen.
  • Karl Delossantos @ Smash Cut Reviews
    • Excerpt: Project Power loses steam almost as quickly as the drug at the center of it. Though it’s visually dazzling, its paint-by-the-numbers plot is exacerbated by hamfisted political commentary and uninspired characters—even Jamie Foxx can’t muster up enough star power to save the day.
  • Derek Deskins @ Edge Media Network
    • Excerpt: Project Power can never stick the landing, wavering in an in-between space: Not crazy enough to be fun, not smart enough to be good.
  • Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: Project Power is an amusing and satisfying distraction that falls in line with what you’d expect from a Netflix original. Charismatic performances carry the thrills along even if it doesn’t explore all the possibilities of its premise.
  • Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
    • Excerpt: 9 out of 10 writers could’ve easily expanded this seed of a creative idea into an interesting tale. Apparently, this is the attempt that failed.

    • Excerpt: Although the star power of Jamie Foxx and Joseph Gordon-Levitt shines in Project Power, it’s young Dominique Fishback who sparkles the brightest in this exciting Netflix offering.
