It may not be the best Sci-Fi film but at least it's a Fun one!

His only hope is 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.
From the quirky mind of Tarsem Singh, we are brought a Sci-Fi spectacle set five years in the future where immortality now exists with many consequences, having a new body, you need to take these pills so you don't have hallucinations or die. Essentially like John Frankenheimer's classic 'Seconds', this film is still a merrymaking Thriller with enough twist and turns to make everything intriguing.
Even if we get a introduction to Kingsley's character in the first ten minutes, we all can agree that Reynolds portrayed him very ideally, being in a young body again can bring some rather exceptions. Matthew Goode, who basically plays the guy who doesn't set right with you, does play a mischievous guy with many tricks up his sleeve that do come In tack in the story.
There are scenes at times where the story becomes a bit bland that last longer than they need too and don't move the story along. There are some characters that do bring blandness as well, they are a bit dreary and don't bring enough pep to the story and are just caught up in this web of madness. I might be nit picking but these are the only troubles I had with the film.
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.
Singh brings most of his usual flair throughout, directing such charming sequences to keep you motivated for what you're about to see. S/L may not be brilliant but at least it brings fitting thrills to keep you going!
