The Formula, released in 2014, is a thrilling adventure movie directed by Thomas Beecher and Joe Clarke. The movie stars Brandon Baker as Quinn and Mike Schminke as Graham, two best friends who have always dreamed of making it big in the pharmaceutical industry. The movie revolves around their pursuit of a secret formula that can unlock the human mind's full potential. The story starts with Quinn and Graham attending a party, where they meet a beautiful and mysterious woman named Belle (played by Sasha Jackson). It is at this party that they overhear a conversation between two scientists that gets them interested in the formula. Intrigued by what they’ve heard, they set out on a journey to find the formula for themselves.

Quinn and Graham soon realize that there is much more to this formula than they had originally thought. As they delve deeper into their research, they realize that some of the most powerful people in the world are also interested in the formula. The scientists who initially stumbled upon the formula are found dead under mysterious circumstances, giving Quinn and Graham an idea of just how valuable the formula is.

The movie draws a fine line between science fiction and action genres. The Formula is not just about two people who are trying to get their hands on a secret formula, but also about their fight for survival.

As they get closer to the formula, they face various obstacles that test their loyalty and determination. Along the way, they have to deal with shady government agents, untrustworthy allies, and even their own inner demons.

One of the highlights of the movie is the pursuit of the formula, which takes the characters all over the world. From the rocky deserts of Arizona to the bustling streets of London, the movie keeps the audience engaged with its exciting action sequences and well-written dialogue. The Formula's exotic locations take the audience on an immersive journey that adds to the overall cinematic experience.

The relationship between Quinn and Graham is also a major theme in the movie. As best friends, they’ve always been there for each other, but as time goes on, they begin to realize that their motivations for finding the formula might not be entirely aligned. Their relationship is put to the test as they grapple with the moral implications of their actions.

Sasha Jackson's Belle is a character that adds a romantic subplot to the movie. She is the enigmatic love interest who is mysterious, intelligent, and fiercely independent. Belle is a catalyst for the story and plays a pivotal role in Quinn and Graham's quest for the formula.

However, the movie is not without its flaws. The Formula's pacing can be erratic at times, with certain scenes feeling rushed while others drag on for too long. The actors do a decent job with their roles, but at times their performances feel stilted and lacking depth.

Overall, The Formula is an engaging movie that keeps the audience guessing until the very end. It is a movie that manages to balance the elements of science fiction, action, and drama quite well. The exotic locations, thrilling action sequences, and the central bromance between the two lead characters make it a worthwhile watch. The Formula is a movie that explores the human need for knowledge and the lengths people will go to obtain it. It's a movie about friendship, betrayal, and ultimately about learning the true value of what's important in life.

The Formula is a 2014 romance movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 35 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 2.6.
