A return to tasteful science fiction. (by njonesproductions)
This is awesome science fiction. Wonderfully crafted.By 40 minutes in I knew this film was absolutely fantastic. A welcome treat among so many scripts that tend to walk the line of "the ridiculously over the top."Ryan seems to be winning me over with serious roles, more and more, as he matures as an actor. He does very well in the roll that Ben Kingsley gets started in a journey to achieve "Immortality." The fact that the film was shot exceptionally tastefully, had a great cast, and contained a worthy script makes it a shoe in for a good ride at the very least.You should <more>
take it.It's a return to what Science Fiction should really be. A continually changing bar or understanding of the universe as we "dare to dream the things that might be within our grasps tomorrow."
I want to just say thank you for bringing such a great story to the screen. It was so nice to watch a movie that was unpredictable, with great acting, and a beautiful story. This movie had everything in it without over doing anything. Most movies now a days have too much shooting, too many things blowing up, 1000 bad guys to 1 good guy which is so annoying . This Movie wasn't any of those things. It was GREAT. And it was extremely refreshing to have the woman on screen dressed classy not trashy not showing boobs, cleavage and their butts . I really want to say "THANK YOU SO MUCH <more>
FOR THAT". I hope to see more movies that represent woman that way. Overall, FANTABULOUS. A must see.
The story is really great. Its thrilling, It has action and the best part is! It makes you wanna be a better person in your life! It makes you wanna do the right thing no matter what! The twists are hinted throughout and can be expected to be true but there is some speculation that makes you want to see if you're right or not. There are many stirring moments in the film from gun play, fist fights and to a car chase, you make yourself root for Reynolds/Kingsley to make everything a whole once again. Its a shame this movie didn't do well, there should be more movies like this. I salute <more>
Even know this movie might not seem amazing to most people now, I can guarantee that in about a decade or even less, the movie will gain a following and it will be big! Absolutely great! We need more movies not based on any books, comics, movies, games, anything, just original ideas is what we need! This is a fantastic film! There are a few flaws in it though, but I do not want to spoil the film. Ryan Reynolds gives a very good performance in the movie, Ben Kingsley also does, everyone gives a good performance except whoever played the mom. Just wait, there will be a following for this film, <more>
there will be t-shirts and merch for this movie years from now when more people are seeing it, it should not have been released in Summer, where it is going to get killed, should have came out in September or October.
Damian Ben Kingsley a self made billionaire discovers he is dying, and does have much longer to live, discovers a secret facility that can transfer his soul into a younger body Ryan Reynolds , when the transfer is a success, Damian really begins to enjoy his new life in his new body, but soon realizes that his new life will have a price to pay.I'm surprised that I liked this, I went expecting this to be bad, but I was amazed on how intriguing it kept me. It shows on we deal with dying and immortality, and things we must learn to face in life. Ben Kingsley was good, and Ryan Reynolds <more>
really surprised me. Matthew Goode was incredible. It does have some good action scenes, and great sci-fi element. Everybody gives a good performance here, and it does what sci-fi should do, kept you intrigue.
Mind swapping thrills n' chills FUN! (by stevepat99)
This IMDb synopsis is accurate and a good starting point: Billionaire Damian Hale has terminal cancer. He turns to a radical medical procedure called "shedding," in which his consciousness is transferred to a healthy body. After the procedure, Damian, now called Edward, starts a new life in New Orleans but is plagued by disturbing images. When he delves into Edward's mysterious origin, he learns that some will kill to keep it secret.My buddy and I, both long time film buffs of multi-genres yearn for decent sci-fi thrillers that are well written and directed, leave us guessing <more>
here and there via plot twists and turns, includes necessary action, murder and mayhem and a credible Mr. Evil. This film delivers 116 minutes of story, acting, production value and pure cinema sci-fi thrilling FUN.We were both thumbs-up entertained by one of Ryan Reynolds best efforts plus a fine supporting cast including Mr. Evil Albright . Our usual post film discussion of plot holes was minimal given the original, well crafted screenplay. That is not to say we did not suspend belief as is the case with many of our best action/Sci-Fi films. A major section of the film, with some of its best action sequences, reminded me of my favorite scenes in Bourne Legacy. With all the above said there was yet room for disturbed, romantic relationships and one cute kid spitting out all her needed lines. Production value gives us some fun shots of New Orleans, area mansions and a finale 'home' in a spectacular locale.There have been so many mind invasion/transfer films that our expectations for something original with thrills, excitement and pathos were low. We left the theater smiling for the simple reason that we were both thoroughly entertained.
Listen to a fellow Movie Fan, not the so-called professional critics: Self/less is inventive and entertaining! (by CleveMan66)
Sometimes I just don't understand so-called professional critics. I really don't. You give them a very good movie and they complain that it wasn't a lot better than it was. It's like they're going out of their way to be negative. That bothers me and that's why I prefer to call myself a movie "reviewer". I'm just someone who loves movies, sees a lot of them, knows a bit about the industry and wants to use my experience as a writer to discuss movies in a way that others might enjoy and find useful – and from a movie fan's perspective.I'm only out <more>
to answer one question when I review a movie: Was it entertaining? If I feel it was, I recommend it, giving it a grade in the "A" or "B" range, depending on how entertaining it was. If it's not very entertaining, or just bad, it gets a "C" or "D". And if the movie is out-right horrible, it gets an "F". Simple, right? Well, "Self/less" PG-13, 1:56 isn't going to change the world, but it is interesting, fun, thought-provoking and well-made. It is, simply stated, a very entertaining film. What more do we need in a movie? Underneath all its action and intrigue, this movie asks how important a person's life is and at what cost a specific person's life should be preserved. Oscar winner Ben Kingsley plays Damian Hale, a New York City real estate tycoon who is dying of cancer. Like most people, Damian is more than a little unnerved by the reality of his imminent demise, but, unlike most people, he has the ability to do something about it. He becomes aware of a very expensive and very secretive process by which his consciousness can be implanted into a younger man's body, enabling Damian to survive, enjoy life and contribute to society for another 50 years or so. He's rich enough to afford it and arrogant enough to think he deserves it.Professor Albright Matthew Goode tells Damian that each body is an "empty vessel" grown in the lab. The body that Damian is given to inhabit looks a lot like Ryan Reynolds. The transition from his old body to his new body called "shedding" is disorienting. Damian's mind has to get used to seeing a different reflection in the mirror and must learn to adjust to his new physicality. Albright puts him up in a luxury apartment near Albright's New Orleans facility in order to monitor the progress of Damian, Version 2.0. Albright also gives the new Damian red pills to help him suppress upsetting and reoccurring visions. Albright calls them "hallucinations" and says that they're a common side effect of the shedding process, but Damian says the visions feel more like memories. Hmmm.As the story unfolds, Damian learns to make new friends, but keep the old. In his temporary digs in the Big Easy, he starts hanging out with a guy named Anton Derek Luke . Damian also gets reacquainted with two very different women from his past played by Michelle Dockery and Natalie Martinez and has to reach out to an old friend and colleague Victor Garber when things get complicated. A sci-fi drama becomes a mystery, a psychological thriller and an action movie with several twists and turns. "Self/less" is part "Invasion of the Body Snatchers", part "The Bourne Identity" and a little bit of "The Matrix". There's a lot going on to keep you entertained while you're thinking deep thoughts about the story's bigger issues.Some critics fault "Self/less" for becoming too much of an action movie and failing to more fully exploit the plot's intriguing set-up. But I have a feeling that if they got the movie they say they wanted, they'd have called it boring. This is an original, exciting film that is very well-acted, well-paced by director Tarsem Singh and well-plotted by screenwriters David and Alex Pastor . The moral issues are never far from the moviegoers mind, and are still there to be considered after some of the movie's more frenetic moments have faded from the screen. A movie doesn't have to be completely original to be thought-provoking and entertaining. "Self/less" is both – and more. "A-"
Okay, so we could be biased about Ryan Reynolds in an Sci-fi/Action title, but hear me out... (by justinrodriguez58)
I would actually give this title a nine if I myself were being biased, and I can be because it's a rarity that I make it to the movies anymore. I get pretty excited when I see something that I actually care about and this was quite entertaining for me..most movies are relevant to in different ways, so take that for what it's worth. I'm a movie lover. I saw this film with the hopeful intention of walking away with a little bit of a Born Identity kind of feel, something considered to be at least surface entertainment and I was not disappointed and that is an understatement. The <more>
action and story opener with Ben Kingsley as the main protagonist was well executed, as was the claustrophobia inducing transformation into Ryan Reynolds. One of the things I was actually worried about from the preview wasn't even about the content of the film but more how under the radar that I felt it would be in the public eye. Ryan Reynolds is not by any means a bad actor and that's his problem, with something so serious and Sci-Fi oriented we're almost reluctant to even approach his ability to draw you in. We see his films and usually know what to expect because he's so likable. Ever since Waiting he's been hard to avoid, but nothing about his roles offer anything compelling and that's not really his fault. I respect his quest for versatility..I really enjoy his role in this movie, actually..the things that are great about this movie really sparkle.. I have to say the best part about this for me would have to be the directing and the Music..my God, they really pulled of some wonderful suspense...some moments made my skin crawl..they utilize an almost Hans Zimmer technique likened to Joker's theme song in the Dark Knight but it doesn't feel rehashed. It's a thoughtful cerebral thriller with the fat trimmed away, it doesn't linger in too many places..the pacing was great. There was not a boring moment and in fact most of it had me cheering, mentally. I even like the ending, thought it was beautiful. The only thing that bothered me was the closing shot of the film, it was so simplistic that it was almost like man...dude, you could have had a classic on your hands, most may not take it to that level but I promise that it's at least likable to anybody. I loved this movie, it had great potential and totally delivered the goods. Every punch, every nuance counted and reminded me that the action genre still has the chance to break some ground.
In recent times it seems like a sci fi thriller is a tricky movie to master, and whilst I don't pretend that Self/less mastered it, it's a very watchable and enjoyable movie.'Billionaire Damian, a man responsible for enormous business deals, a big figure with the ability to buy whatever he wants, but not the thing he needs, a cure for cancer. Out with friend and fellow business man Martin a card is slipped into Damian's possession, Phoenix biogenic, with a message on the back of help. Damian attends and meets Professor Albright, who explains the procedure on offer, <more>
Damian's living consciousness can be transplanted into a new body, a body that's been cultivated. Damian accepts and wakes up a fit young man. Albright insists on meeting weekly, giving Damian the pills he must take without fail. As time goes on Damian starts having disturbing visions, the constant being a woman, little girl, and a pumpkin tower. Researching the tower he is led to St Louis, where he discovers the truth behind his new guise and the sinister Albright.I really did enjoy this movie, the concept was a good one, it was a clever plot. There were enough surprises and plenty of intrigue to keep you wondering.If I had one little niggle, it's that for me after the transformation to Reynolds it felt like a different film, it didn't feel seamless, maybe that was intentional, I felt they could have delved into the transition a little deeper, it seemed to happen to quickly.Lots of action scenes, really well directed, the effects were great too. I wish Google searches worked so quickly for me, Pumpkin Towers All I'm saying. 11,300,000 results, my he was lucky.Brilliantly acted, Kinglsey naturally has gravitas, he's so watchable. Ryan Reynolds was excellent I thought, I really enjoyed his performance, Matthew Goode I thought was outstanding, managing to be sinister without overplaying it. I love Michelle Dockery, but she was a little underused, just a bit part.8/10 Very watchable, surprisingly so.
