Mini Review: They Cloned tyrone

A series of eerie events thrusts an unlikely trio onto the trail of a nefarious government conspiracy.


John Boyega, Jamie Foxx, and Teyonah Parris


Although they refuse to pay actors what they deserve, Netflix has no shame in dropping another thrown together film wasting the talents of some of cinema's best current black actors and actresses. A story that feels like it was written on a McDonald's napkin and mediocre performances all around make 'I Cloned Tyrone' feel more like a youtube short film than a million dollar production.


John Boyega delivers a very mediocre performance giving you the feeling that you're wasting his time by even watching this film. Jamie Foxx has a few good moments but overall just exists as the comedy of the film which doesn't land most of the time. The only member of the cast who felt like they cared was Teyonah Parris who gave a great performance for a film that doesn't deserve what she put in.


The mediocre performances are pushed to the side by a plot that doesn't feel natural. Every crazy twist or moment is played off as not very serious or when it is there's so weight behind it. At the end you are left with more questions than answers when the final 20 minutes is just set up for a sequel.


While there are a few rare moments of humor, the movie falls flat by pushing stereotypes and a crazy plot that doesn't feel fleshed out enough to deserve any praise.
