For what it's worth, director Juel Taylor gets the whole mystery thing right here, using a delectable trio of talented actors to immerse you in a tale of intrigue, conspiracy, and cover-ups. The bad thing, however, is that They Cloned Tyrone doesn't finish off strong despite starting stupendously.

John Boyega is Fontaine, a brooding young man who is more of a fighter and less of a talker. After 'surviving' a shooting following a confrontation with a notorious gangster, he teams up with a pimp (Jamie Foxx) and a prostitute (Teyonah Parris) to find out why and how he could still be alive and what the powers that be want with him.

Bloody, humourous, ambitious, intriguing, and downright crazy, this film is definitely a crowd-pleaser until it slowly becomes a victim of its own ingenuity.

The pacing is good, the actors spectacular, and the dialogue witty. I guess what went wrong is the writing because midway, the story wavers and climaxes into an all-out brawl that culminates in a boring monologue with an annoying antagonist.

I enjoyed They Cloned Tyrone so much until it became predictable. Boyega is compelling as the anti-hero who rushes first and asks questions later.

Foxx is charming and entertaining, playing Slick so well that I couldn't imagine anyone else getting the part. As for Parris, she gives the men (and the viewer) something to hold on to so that you never forget her even when she is offscreen.

This is a film that I thought would give Netflix something really good to boast about this year (the last memorable thing to release on the streamer was Nimona) but alas, that doesn't prove to be the case.

Aside from the tumble into mediocrity, They Cloned Tyrone is a charming flick that will crack the ribs of fun seekers who don't mind the film's imperfections.

For me, this is good enough to not be forgettable in a hurry but not remarkable enough to want me seeing it again.
