They cloned the Tyrone Review

They Cloned Tyrone (2023) Movie reviewOR movie run by Joel Taylorwritten by Tony Rettenmaier AND Joel Taylor and playing John Boyega, Jamie Foxx, Teyonah Parris, Kiefer Sutherland, David Alan Grier, J. Alphonse Nicholson, Tamberla Perry, Eric B. Robinson Jr., Trayce Malachi, Leon Lamar, Joshua Mikel, Ryan Dining, Swift RICE, Megan Sousa, Jordan Charity, Austin Freeman AND David Shae.

They cloned Tyrone is director Juel Taylor’s intriguing sci-fi film about a series of strange events that take place in a neighborhood called the Glen, where drugs and sex are sold by ordinary people for a living. While comparisons with films like 2018 are a little more superior I’m sorry to bother you are inevitable, Taylor’s film lends its original flare that makes it interesting to watch, even as it takes places that aren’t always satisfying in terms of how the plot unfolds.

The film opens with new kid JuneBug (a standout Trayce Malachi) hilariously comparing the new film’s main character to the animated main character from Spongebob Square Pants. Fontaine (John Boyega) is a black drug dealer who does what he has to do to make a living. His mother seems restrained and Fontaine must survive by any means possible. Slick Charles (a charismatic Jamie Foxx) is a pimp who owes Fontaine some money. We also meet Yo-Yo (Teyonah Parris), a prostitute who does tricks to survive. Yo-Yo is trying to get away from annoying Charles Slick at first. Soon, another dealer named Isaac (J. Alphonse Nicholson) shoots and apparently kills Fontaine. When Fontaine quickly returns to get the rest of his money from Slick Charles, the film’s plot begins to get complicated as it appears that Fontaine isn’t exactly dead.

In short order, Fontaine, Yo-Yo and Slick Charles begin to suspect a van. They begin to uncover something like a conspiracy. A white powder starts making people laugh uncontrollably. One such ingredient in fast food chicken is the serving of chicken. Yo-Yo approaches the restaurant manager, and when he’s not looking, she begins to uncover some very intriguing information.

Meanwhile, every day, Fontaine encounters a fool as Fontaine leaves the store with a scratched-off lottery ticket, which is always a loser. The homeless man helps lead our intrepid trio to discover more than they wanted to know, as clones of people in the neighborhood like them are being commissioned for a very disturbing reason.

Enter a warped scientist named Nixon (Kiefer Sutherland) who shows up to further explain why things are happening the way they are. It’s not a pretty sight, and the experiments being conducted will cause an uncomfortable reality to sink in on our main characters. Nixon wants our heroes out before things get even uglier. All this action culminates with a group of naked clones walking past a check cashing place in a wild scenario that will keep your attention on the very detailed plot logistics too scary to contemplate.

John Boyega is in fine form as the deluded Fontaine. Jamie Foxx is his usual self in a performance that is sometimes a little over the top and a little restrained from others. It’s Teyonah Parris as Yo-Yo, however, who makes the biggest impression on the central cast members. There’s a scene where she discusses the reality she wanted versus the reality she got, which rings completely true. Yo-Yo may be stuck in a hole, but she’s tough, brave and determined and will do whatever it takes to try and change the unfortunate situation she finds herself in. Parris emerges from this film as its most valuable player.

Government conspiracy films are always intriguing, but they’re rarely completely satisfying because they ultimately have to conform to the standards of a Hollywood film in order to cover the complexity of the premises they portray. The same is for They cloned Tyrone. The picture looks like it could have explored more than it does. It’s fun to watch and may spark some thoughts about how experiments can be done in our homeland, but ultimately, the food for thought is very disturbing, which is why this film chooses to include a lot of comic relief. The premise is science fiction, sure, but it’s also surprisingly believable at times. I don’t know if this is a good thing or a bad thing. However, some plot points are just too clever and too touching for their own good.

But it doesn’t matter. They cloned Tyrone it will be a nice hit for Netflix because it will captivate the viewer with its twisted premise similar to “Twilight Zone”. Foxx, Sutherland and Boyega may have some of the film’s best lines, but ultimately it’s Parris who takes center stage with her incredible appeal as an actress. She carries the film to victory making it worth watching.
