Project Power is now out on Netflix.
The action blockbuster follows a drug that gives its users animal powers.
The film also features an awesome soundtrack. Check out the songs here.
Fast on the heels of Extraction and The Old Guard, two other A-list, star-led action fests (with Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron), Netflix’s recent action push, Project Power, (with Jamie Foxx and Joseph Gordon-Levitt) proves to be another pyrotechnic joyride.
The film, something between Limitless and Dredd, features the narcotic “power,” which grants users unique animal abilities like strength and speed and, for Jamie Foxx, whose power spirit animal is apparently a pistol shrimp, some Zack-Snyder-level slow-mo lighting.
Like Netflix’s other two action entries, the film also features a contemporary soundtrack. The music, however, better reflects the theme of the film, with one of its characters equating “power” with her own musical abilities—which feels less filler than in The Old Guard where we get: a man just fell 40 stories into a car, okay, let’s play some Khalid!
Project Power is also set in New Orleans, and the music selection, while not featuring all local talent, captures something of the city’s jazzy soul. Add this to the hip-hop aspirations of its Robin Reilly (Dominique Fishback) and you get a pretty great soundtrack against which to watch people take drugs and burst into flames.
