    This movie tie-in is briskly paced with fairly well fleshed out characters. There's a lot of action which I'm sure will translate better on screen.

    The novelization of Gemini Man, was published by Titan Books. It's based on the film by Ang Lee, with the story by Darren Lemke and David Benioff. The screenplay was by Darren Lemke, Billy Ray, and David Benioff. SUMMARY: The DIA or Defense Intelligence Agency serves to protect the nation from terrorists and to keep its secrets within its borders. Henry Brogan is on a mission to assassinate a Russian spy, who has vital intelligence on national security.

The screenplay was by Darren Lemke, Billy Ray, and David Benioff. SUMMARY: The DIA or Defense Intelligence Agency serves to protect the nation from terrorists and to keep its secrets within its borders. Henry Brogan is on a mission to assassinate a Russian spy, who has vital intelligence on national security. After the mission is complete, Henry knows in his bones that it's time to retire. The DIA really wants to keep him on board, most in his line of work would die on duty, it's the preferred form of retirement for the agency, as the secrets held by the agents, would also die. The DIA isn't in favor of loose ends. So, a watchful eye shall be kept on Henry. The lies and deception of the agency come to fruition when Henry meets up with an old pal. This friend reveals that the "Russian spy," wasn't a spy at all. He was employed by the US government, and his assassination was just a precaution, to assure that whatever secrets he had, couldn't fall into enemy hands. (the watchful eyes of the DIA, know Henry has learned of this.) Agents have been sent to silence/assassinate Henry, but he's ready, and unstoppable. On his attempt to break free, he faces a new enemy, an agent of Project Gemini - a clone of his younger self. Henry has a personal mission to bring justice to those in charge of the DIA and to put an end to Project Gemini (the future military of superior soldiers). CHARACTERS: For this review I picked two characters to briefly mention, the main protagonist and antagonist. Henry Brogan is a sharpshooter. He promised himself the exact date of retirement, and stuck to his word no mater what the DIA would do to keep him on board. He want's to kick back, relax, and make birdhouses. He's got a sense of humor but also rather serious. He's a fighter, but also very kind. Clay Verris is the man behind Project Gemini. He raised the first clone of Henry as a son, giving this clone the name Junior. He's a horrible father figure, who raised junior as a soldier since his youth. Junior is in his mid-twenties, but Verris treats him like he's still a child. Verris is selfish, brutal, and greedy. He doesn't feel what he's doing is wrong, proving he has no morals whatsoever. OVERALL THOUGHTS: The novelization for Gemini Man was fun. Was it incredible? No. Was it absolute trash? No. It was a cheesy - decent read, and I'm glad I read the novel. It's a fast paced story packed with action and has some pretty cool science fiction elements. A lot of the descriptions are written out very well, including the characters thoughts and emotions. There is also quite a bit of humor sprinkled throughout, mostly coming from our main character, Henry. (Note: I didn't see this film, but I could hear Will Smith's voice clearly through the writing.) So, I'd have to say the dialogue was written well. The problem I had with the story, is that it was a bit too choppy. Time passes rapidly, the characters move around the globe with no timeframe really explained at all. The villain's motivations were clear, but rather silly. Though, I don't blame the author for this one bit. Sometimes it really comes across as goofy that there is this secret defense agency that has these secret assassins that are far superior to any other human warrior in any military service... well maybe that is legit, but the idea to clone one of these assassin warriors to breed an army of this one man's DNA... that's the silly part of it. Do I recommend this book? As someone who has not seen the film but has heard that it has pretty bad CGI, I would say yes - read the book over watching the film. Rating: This book receives a C+

    Not really sure why I went to read this. It was a good movie for what it was in my opinion, and a good book as well. Kind of a good one shot Jason Bourne adventure. If you like spy thriller novels this isn't bad. It also wasn't a bad movie, so there's that. Not really sure why I went to read this.

    It’s like watching the Hindenberg crash into the Titanic I watched Gemini Man recently, after seeing the novelization first (it normally happens the other way round.) I was intrigued by the story and after watching Will Smith face off against his younger self, I was curious to see how that would translate onto page. First of all, there is no author attached to this - I’ve checked Amazon/Goodreads/Googled it and can’t find anything other than it was written by Titan Books. Strange author name. The It’s like watching the Hindenberg crash into the Titanic I watched Gemini Man recently, after seeing the novelization first (it normally happens the other way round.) I was intrigued by the story and after watching Will Smith face off against his younger self, I was curious to see how that would translate onto page. First of all, there is no author attached to this - I’ve checked Amazon/Goodreads/Googled it and can’t find anything other than it was written by Titan Books. Strange author name. There is nothing on the title page/front cover/copyright page. So either it’s been ghost written, or the author hasn’t wanted their name attached to it. Or Titan Books hasn’t wanted the author’s name attached to it. Very strange indeed and something that drives me crazy to think that someone isn’t getting the credit they rightly deserve. (Unless it was written by Alan Smithie?) Because this author managed to flesh out the background to the characters and also get into their heads, which was very well done. Understanding and getting down to the very complicated feelings and emotions that Henry and Junior experience throughout the book, while trying to figure out the crazy in Clay (played by an utterly detestable Clive Owen in the film) couldn’t have been handled by just any author. But this author has managed it and fleshed our the storyline really well. The beginning train journey is expanded upon, as we get an almost internal monologue from Dormov - something that you don’t really get from the film. I kind of wish the novelization had used the alternate opening that was included on the blu-ray extras, as I thought this gave much more of an insight into what was going to happen later on in the film. Apart from the expansion on the characters thoughts and feelings to what is happening and what is occurring around them, the novelization sticks quite closely to the film, with hardly any major changes. There may have been a couple of modifications but nothing that really stood out at me. Where this book probably does fall down is on the action-heavy scenes, which I find a lot with novelizations of movies. The fight/action scenes just grow tiresome, as they’re more fast paced on screen, whereas the same urgency/excitement just doesn’t translate onto the page very well. The unnamed author has done his/her best with this, trying to stick closely to what occurs on screen and what was in the final shooting script. But it just gets bogged down really. And any chapters with Clay are just so tedious and detract from the pace of the book. He was a character I didn’t care for in the film (and quite possibly because I can’t stand Clive Owen). Thankfully, he doesn’t get as much page time as his counterparts so you can easily skim these sections if need be. Overall, it’s a good novelization with good expansion on characters/background. I just think action-led films aren’t the best to convert into novelizations. But it’s worth picking up if you enjoyed the film.

    Horrível. Praticamente sem história além do que você sabe antes de ler o livro. O livro de baseia basicamente de descrever cenas de ação extremamente clichês, típicas de um filme dos anos 90. Sofrível em cada palavra.
