Will Smith’s new flick ‘Gemini Man’ has everything needed for an effective action movie;  a believable leading man, a great director, a formulaic plot, and big fight scenes. The only problem is ‘Gemini Man’ just isn’t very good. Director Ang Lee, known for his much superior ‘Brokeback Mountain,’ relies on new movie technology and hopes […]
