Mark Wahlberg’s Bananas New Action Movie Infinite, Explained

If it feels to you like the new Mark Wahlberg movie Infinite came out of nowhere, it turns out Mark Wahlberg is just as surprised. According to an article in the Hollywood Reporter a couple of weeks ago, it wasn’t until a May earnings call that Wahlberg and the film’s director, Antoine Fuqua, found out that the movie was skipping theaters and going straight to the new streaming service Paramount+. (It’s out Thursday.) The marketing hasn’t done much to clear up the mystery, either. The movie didn’t even get a trailer until Memorial Day, less than two weeks before its release, and even then, the trailer raised more questions than it answers.

Mark Wahlberg’s Reincarnation Movie Infinite Needs a Few More Lifetimes of Work

If reincarnation were real, and you were able to somehow hold on to your memories across lifetimes, you would experience an off-kilter version of immortality. Your body wouldn’t live forever, but your awareness would, accruing millennia of experiences while having to start over anew each time, seeing existence from a different perspective. Because it wouldn’t be easy to hold on to wealth, much less status, knowledge would be the main advantage. There would be endless opportunities to learn languages, crafts, and sports; to study science, philosophy, and art; to delve into hedonism and asceticism and consider the nature of humanity.

Infinite review – Mark Wahlberg reincarnation thriller is stuck in the past

As we’re told during some clumsily inserted introductory voiceover, in the world of hokey sci-fi thriller Infinite, there’s a rare section of people who can remember their past lives. For some, the Believers, this knowledge is seen as a gift, an ever-growing set of skills accumulated throughout hundreds of years and proof of a higher power. But for others, known as the Nihilists, it’s viewed as a curse, a tiresome immortality and one they want to bring to a violent and permanent end, destroying the rest of the world in the process. By the crumbling final moments of almost 100 misfiring minutes, you’ll be a card-carrying member of the latter, praying that everything within this silly film burns to the ground as fast as inhumanly possible.

Mark Wahlberg in Antoine Fuqua’s ‘Infinite’: Film Review

It’s an intriguing idea in theory to hitch the reincarnation beliefs of Eastern religions to a futuristic scenario of gifted souls with perfect recall of their past lives, split into good and evil factions at war over humanity’s survival. But Infinite is a soulless grind. Juiced up with a succession of CG-enhanced accelerated chases and fight action interspersed with numbing bursts of high-concept geek speak, Antoine Fuqua’s sci-fi thriller isn’t helped by a lead performance from Mark Wahlberg at his most inexpressive. His character is basically a charisma void with a permanently furrowed brow suggesting brain strain. It’s no surprise Paramount shunted this thrice-delayed theatrical release to its streaming platform.

Mark Wahlberg has Infinite lives in a blockbuster without enough soul

One of the challenges of launching a new science fiction or fantasy universe is explaining all the damn rules that govern it. Infinite, a brisk but largely flavorless blast of comic-bookish origin story boilerplate, wastes no time getting down to that obligatory business. The film lays out its premise over an opening aerial tour of Mexico City, in oddly formal and probably studio mandated voice-over. Never mind that all of this information, plucked from the pages of D. Eric Maikranz’s novel The Reincarnationist Papers, will be reiterated via dialogue later in the movie. Infinite takes no chances on losing anyone—sound logic, perhaps, for a would-be blockbuster with more exposition than story.
