infinite review

“There are among us a people gifted with a perfect memory of all their past lives. They call themselves Infinites!” So says Mark Wahlberg less than a minute into Infinite, the hacky and dreadfully blah sci-fi action pic from director Antoine Fuqua. Wahlberg doesn’t usually do voice-over narration in his movies, and it’s easy to see (or rather, hear) why – he’s very bad at it. Infinite thankfully doesn’t have wall-to-wall Wahlberg voice-overs, but when it happens, you’ll be in awe at how out of his element Wahlberg seems. He sounds as if he’s reading his lines, and reading them for the very first time, too. On top of that, he sounds like he doesn’t understand the words that he’s looking at, as if he were reading a foreign language and trying to pronounce things phonetically.

I’m not saying ditching the voice-over would save Infinite – it’s too far gone for that. But it sure wouldn’t hurt.

This cheaper subscription plan gives Paramount+ a leg up over its old CBS All Access counterpart (which was $5.99 at its cheapest), as will the summer slate of over 1,000 “premium” movies and new original TV series, led by the Paramount+ exclusive release of the Mark Wahlberg action thriller Infinite.

As Hollywood struggled to survive during the pandemic era, one tactic seems to have become commonplace: studios making big announcements about how and where films are going to debut. But the controversial aspect of that tactic is that those decision have frequently been made without giving enough of a heads-up to the directors and stars who are affected by those announcements.

The latest recipients of this treatment? Director Antoine Fuqua and star Mark Wahlberg, who were blindsided by the news that their upcoming science fiction movie Infinite is going to debut directly on the new Paramount+ streaming service.

Paramount Plus Movies

Paramount+ seems like one of the younger streaming services on the scene, even though it’s just a rebranded versions of CBS All Access with a beefier library of movies and TV shows. However, only now is the Viacom-owned streamer trying to run with the big dogs in their production of original content. In fact, when 2022 rolls around, Paramount+ has plans to release one original movie every single week, and they’re getting a head start by debuting Antoine Fuqua‘s movie Infinite, starring Mark Wahlberg and Chiwetel Ejiofor, this summer.

infinite movie cast

In what has to be one of the biggest examples of downgrading ever, the Antoine Fuqua film Infinite is set to replace Chris Evans with Mark Wahlberg. Evans just recently dropped out of the acton thriller, and Wahlberg is now in talks to take over his role in the film about near-immortal men and women reincarnated over the centuries. So I guess this is kind of like Highlander, with Mark Wahlberg. Yay?

Chris Evans is leaving the Marvel Cinematic Universe after Avengers: Endgame, which means he’s going to have some free time. Rather than take a long vacation, the actor is already looking for new projects – one of which is the sci-fi film Infinite, based on the novel The Reincarnationist Papers. As is the case with most big movies these days, there’s franchise potential here, which means Evans might be jumping from one franchise to another. If so, he’ll be working with Equalizer director Antoine FuquaRead More »
