I was lucky enough to be invited to a premiere screening of the film, in 60fps and in 3D (been a while since I've seen a film in 3D, and the framerate was distracting in very few scenes).
It's a technical feat. Young Will Smith is probably the best looking CGI de-aging effect I've seen in a film (until the last scene).
The cinematography was also really well-done, there are some interesting shots, especially one panoramic shot of a train whizzing by. And shots hold for much longer than the typical action film, often showing impressive long-take shots.
The action is tense, with hard-hitting fight choregoraphy, as opposed to the "cut away" style many modern action films go with.
Will Smith, both young and old, delivers a very good performance as assassins struggling with their identity & place in the world, albeit in very different circumstances.
The plot takes a bit to kick in to full gear, but once it gets rolling, it's a thrilling ride some minor speed bumps.
All in all, a solid Hollywood action film, it's no masterpiece, but very enjoyable.
