In the first shot scene, the train was moving in one direction when the first shot was taken, but when the video is shown on the phone, the train is moving in the opposite way (the trees through the window), which could not happen, as it was a high speed train and it couldn't just stop and reverse.

David Benioff & his pen present: Another disappointment
Gemini Man was directed by Ang Lee and stars Will Smith as an assassin who fights a younger Will Smith.
Gemini Man is one of the biggest disappointments of the year and the second disappointment of the year written by David Benioff. Character depth is non-existent, the story fails to be interesting and is often pointless and the action sequences are mostly let downs. Another big problem is the very underdeveloped supporting characters. Both Mary Elisabeth Winstead and Benedict Wong who are respectable actors are given very little to do and serve little purpose in advancing the plot. The main reason for that is the writing and no, not just David Benioff. This film has three credited screenwriters due to multiple rewrites and the ending result is a mess, to say the least.
Despite the poor writing, I can praise Gemini Man for great de-aging effects which were easily the highlight of this film. Also, Will Smith at least gives some effort to his character but without any succession due to poor directing.
Unless you want to lose close to two hours of your time skip Gemini Man and go watch Looper or other actually good films with similar concepts.
Final Rating - 4/10
