The plot climax relies on the power of an electron magnet. The power pack and the wires are all to create a more powerful magnet. Magnets work on substances with iron in them. They have no effect on plastics or nearly all other metals, such as lead or aluminum. Bullets usually lead or brass and certainly the bullets used in the gun at the end would not have been affected by any magnet. See more »
This could have been acceptable if it would have been marketed as such. But no, they went and made a trailer that looked like a sci-fi and had the audacity to quote "Chronicle meets Iron Man" in it. Seriously?
Take the standard good boy caught in a bad situation with a mobster and waste two thirds of the movie with it. Then end it with a few scenes where he uses an impossible device that he created because he is black, smart and his teacher helped him. That's the whole film. Black people, drugs, poor neighborhoods and abused youngsters fill up the rest.
So don't listen to the hype. It's consciously generated to make you believe this is something that it's not. And putting aside the *sleight* I was talking about above, it's just a sub-average movie.
