Not anymore, I found you — Ryan Reynolds, The Adam Project


Perspective into Review

Can we talk about Ryan Reynold’s ability to upscale even the lamest of plots? It’s like he has this charm where he can be himself in any role, and it just fits perfectly. He can be a half-dead immortal anti-hero, an NPC dimwit, or just a dad. His ability to stay genuine is an amazing trait that’s also adaptable to any situation.

The Adam Project, quite poetic with its name, is a movie about time travel in a nut shell, but I’m pleasantly surprised to say that it’s a lot more than that. Normally, I’d never want to review such a film, but I gotta say it, Ryan won me over again.

Even though it’s a story that’s been done over and over again, it’s really a story about what it means to be a child and a dad.

Adam is a kid who’s lost his father, and he doesn’t exactly know what that means. Of course, he feels the loss, but it’s really about that means for his personal development and relationship with his mother.

This is when he meets future Adam, Ryan Renold’s, who essentially fills in as a father figure. I’m glad this movie was less don’t this and don’t that, and it cleared that it’s a time travel tale quite early so that it can get into the fun stuff.

Yea, for around 70% of the film, it’s a packet of fun and pleasantries, but it can get real deep real fast. It keeps a good balance between story and character, fast and slow moments. While it has its save the world vibes and clichés, it has a lot more heart to it.

It’s easy to be critical over such movies, but I believe sometimes we have to suspend our beliefs to find what reliefs. Reviews don’t to be numerical either as what one number may mean to me subjectively may not apply to you. So my hope when reviewing something is to give you the meat of the content on that platter not the cloche itself. I try to review things that I can find some positivity in, so it feels good to review…
