The Adam Project
“The Adam Project” – Ryan Reynolds is an actor that I do enjoy watching but his movies are hit and miss for the most part with me and this one is no different. He really can act but this time travel/sci-fi flick just does not do it for me. Ok, it had some ‘cute’ moments but besides Reynolds, you also have the talents of Zoe Saldana, Jennifer Garner and Mark Ruffalo going to waste as well.
The story is about a 12 year old kid who has lost his father and is adjusting to life with just his mom. He is picked on by bullies at school and really has no friends. His favorite thing is to sit at home and play video games One evening while his mom is out, a fighter pilot in a space craft lands in his yard and come to find out it is Reynold’s, who has come back in time to work with his 12 year old self to help save the future. The premise alone is ridiculous and I almost didn’t follow through on the film. But I figured I was so far into it I would finish it out to see what happened next.
I will say that the film does have some pretty good music (I do not recall Led Zeppelin ever allowing their music to be used in film but could be wrong) as well as action scenes. The addition of those really helped being able to endure the film.
