From 2003 to 2010 Nicolas Cage was attached to the project. It was finally due to go into production in 2008, but Cage convinced Jerry Bruckheimer to work on the live-action remake The Sorcerer's Apprentice (2010) instead. See more »
In the first shot scene, the train was moving in one direction when the first shot was taken, but when the video is shown on the phone, the train is moving in the opposite way (the trees through the window), which could not happen, as it was a high speed train and it couldn't just stop and reverse.

Twenty-five years ago, Clay took my blood, he made you from me! The government chose me because there's never been anybody like me. He's been lying to you the whole time. He told you, you were an orphan, and of all the people in the world to come after me, why would he send you?
Because I'm the best.

You are obviously not the best!
You're just trying to rattle me.
I'm trying to save you!
I'm not you old man... I'M NOT YOU

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.
