Reincarnation, or rebirth, is currently a matter of research that is accepted even by medical science. The theme of the story is based on Eve’s rebirth, which oscillates between good and evil. It is a film adaptation of D. Eric Maikranz’s 2009 novel The Reincarnationist Papers. It was screened in 2021 through Paramount+.

This American science fiction action movie was directed by famous American film director Antoine Fuqua, and screenplay by Ian Shorr. Starring Mark Wahlberg, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Sophie Cookson, Jason Mantzoukas, Rupert Friend, Toby Jones, and Dylan O’Brien.

The story begins in 1985 in Mexico City, where a man named Heinrich Tardeway steals a device called ‘Egg’. A weapon designed to prevent the reincarnation of these people and hide their souls in computer chips. A man named Bathurst comes to get it. Bathurst is a misuse of this weapon. So here Treadway and his colleagues Abel and Leona also have to die. They were posthumously born in New York City.

There we meet Evan McCauley, the main character of the story. He is a man suffering from hypomania. Due to his violent behavior along with his illness, he has lost his chances of getting a job. Therefore, he makes a living by making weapons for a gangster in the city. As the story progresses, Evan has to go to jail. There he meets Bathurst, his nemesis for centuries. Meanwhile, Nora Brightman’s encounter with Leona, a former soul, turns Evan’s life on its head. Nora helps Evan escape from prison and prompts him to reflect on his memories. There we learn that Evan is the reincarnation of Treadway. Also, the reason for his schizophrenia is that these memories are remembered from time to time.

The people who can reflect memories in this way are called infinite. There are about 500 of them in the whole world. They are divided into two groups. Believers like Nora, who hope for the good of the world, are on one side, while nihilists like Bathurst, who want to destroy life on Earth, are on the other side.

I will not tell the rest of the story. This is a bit of a strange story. A film is full of curiosity with fight scenes that can be watched without getting bored.

 No matter how unique the theme is, the script and acting did not get a good response from the audience and critics’ websites. Although the positive response of rotten tomatoes is low like 17%, it must be said that it is a movie that can be enjoyed by those who like to enjoy different stories. The weakening of the relationship between the cases may have influenced these negative reviews. However, this is a great opportunity for those who are looking for action thriller movies

So, when the critics say, infinite has a strong story that can be enjoyed. Watch Infinite 2021 to know what happens at the end. I want to tell you that you, the audience who enjoy science fiction, deserve this experience. You will understand that even if it is a little complicated, it does not hinder the enjoyment. 

thank you.
