What’s it about?
Based on the novel The Reincarnationist Papers, Infinite explores the idea of reincarnation and the implications that come with being reborn throughout the generations with all your memories intact through the eyes of Mark Wahlberg’s character Evan McCauley.
For Evan McCauley (Mark Wahlberg), skills he has never learned and memories of places he has never visited haunt his daily life. Self-medicated and on the brink of a mental breakdown, a secret group that call themselves ‘Infinites’ come to his rescue, revealing to him that his memories are real – but they are from multiple past lives. The Infinites bring Evan into their extraordinary world, where a gifted few are given the ability to be reborn with their memories and knowledge accumulated over centuries. With critical secrets buried in his past, Evan must work with the Infinites to unlock the answers in his memories in a race against time to save humanity from one of their own (Chiwetel Ejiofor) who seeks to destroy it.
Is it any good?
No…hell no. Avoid this like the plague. Mark Walberg exists in this purely to flex his biceps and show his chest. The dialougue in this is wooden and at times each character delivers their lines four words at a time. The time dragged on this and I constantly found my attention wandering a bit like the premise of this which wasted a fantastic concept.
