(2021) (Mark Wahlberg, Chiwetel Ejiofor) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Action: A man learns that not only has he been reincarnated through the ages, but also that his former self hid a weapon that his adversary wanted and now still wants to use to destroy the world.
Evan McCauley (MARK WAHLBERG) is a troubled soul who was diagnosed as a schizophrenic as a teen. With a history of violence, he has a hard time landing or holding down a job, and thus gets by -- including being paid in antipsychotic medication -- by crafting specialized weapons for others, something he has an apparent innate talent for doing.
Little does he know that he's just one of several hundred so-called Infinites who've been reincarnated countless times. Yet, unlike the rest -- that are split between the Believes who want to protect and promote growth and the Nihilists who want to kill everything -- he doesn't have a memory of his past lives.
That is, at least so far, something Nora Brightman (SOPHIE COOKSON) wants to awaken in him after saving him from his age-old enemy, Bathurst (CHIWETEL EJIOFOR). It seems that in the past, Evan was Heinrich Treadway (DYLAN O'BRIEN) who managed to stop Bathurst (RUPERT FRIEND) from killing all life on Earth via a high-tech weapon that he hid before perishing.
Now the current day Bathurst wants to get his hands back on that and complete the job -- to end the cycle of reincarnation. That's something Nora and her cohorts Kovic (J”HANNES HAUKUR J”HANNESSON) and Trace (KAE ALEXANDER) want to prevent, thus necessitating a trip to see The Artisan (JASON MANTZOUKAS) who might be able to shock Evan's past-life memories back into his consciousness.
