Pretty average sci-fi...
8 September 2015 | by troyputlandSee all my reviews

A super rich real estate businessman by the name of Damian (Ben Kingsley) is dying. With a decent chunk of his money, Damian decides to transfer his consciousness to a new, younger body (Ryan Reynolds). There are side effects, really important ones that are kept secret until after the transition. The modern, healthier Damian erroneously bumps in to these well kept secrets, changing his whole view on life and death. Ben Kingsley, for the first quarter of Self/less, is first-class, unveiling Damian as a man with power and notoriety. When Reynolds enters the fray, his personality doesn't match, as if the two didn't taken the time to fit in the character's affinity. The story barely breaks the surface of a good idea. Asking the right questions, but not filling the answers. Matthew Goode's head scientist of the underground company feeds us this information. The action and the flow of the story are thrilling enough, but not to the point of caring for the lead.
