They Cloned Tyrone (2023) S: John Boyega, Teyonah Parris, Jamie Foxx



A series of eerie events thrusts an unlikely trio (John Boyega, Teyonah Parris, and Jamie Foxx) onto the trail of a nefarious government experience conspiracy in this pulpy mystery caper.

Jamie Foxx seems to be in everything lately. Iím starting to understand why he stroked out.

This actually looks pretty good - look at that, a new movie I'm interested in.

I guess Orphan Black was already taken...

ETA: Watched the trailer and this looks like a lot of fun. Kind of makes me wish it was one half of Grindhouse-sequel double feature, though.

This is up now on Netflix. I though it was great.

Reviews are mostly great, and random people on Twitter seem to like it a lot from what I have seen.

I normally donít bother with Netflix movies because theyíre usually bad, but this looks at least entertaining.

will check it out

Just watched it on Netflix. It was a fun movie. The twist was pretty predictable, but the execution was still fun.

It was good. Kinda like an expanded Us. It worked well. Good players, but nothing too ecstatic to say. Nothing I’d need to revisit.

Ugh, so let down by this. I was worried about Boyega but he did great. Acting/Characters were fine, some great laughs but damn, this could have been so much better.

I loved the grain effect and cigarette burns used throughout, nice touch.

It feels like they did a cop-out with thr story elements...was hoping it would have been much creepier than it was.

Wonderful debut from Director Juel Taylor, absolute monster of a cast in John Boyega, Teyonah Parris & Jamie Foxx.

I loved the first 45-minutes of the film and then the pacing suffers tremendously, grinding to an absolute halt until the finale.

Bonus points for the amount of Hollow Man (2000) references in the film
