Self/less Review

Billionaire Damian Hale (Ben Kingsley) is on top of the world until he runs into a problem he can't solve, Cancer. His only hope is a new medical procedure called "shedding," in which his consciousness is transferred to a healthy body. After Damian undergoes this procedure, he becomes a man named Edward (Ryan Reynolds). Once he attempts to start a new life in New Orleans, he starts to become ravaged by visions of his new body's past. As he begins to investigate the origin of his new body, he learns the lengths that his creators will take to protect their procedure and keep their identities secret.

The film, I will admit, introduces an original concept that not many films have covered. It's a shame that it does not stay with it for very long. We start off with older Damian coming to terms with where he is in his life and with his condition and then the film pivots to more of an action film as younger Damian/Edward investigates his roots through his visions and survive its resistance. It was a shame that more time wasn't spent with the older version of Damian. This loss created a void in the story. It would have been better if we could have spent more time with him so his character could be more developed. From the little we got to see, he appears to not be that great of a person. If we knew more, we would have reason to root for him. The time spent during an unnecessary sequence in the middle could have helped with that. There is a lack of consistency in the character of Damian as well. The character is played by 2 different actors but their performances are not the same. There seems to not be any apparent, similar, alignment in mannerisms between the two Damians, they don't act too similarly either. That could either be because of writing, Ryan Reynolds' performance, and/or not too careful direction. The film had the chance to try to answer some philosophical questions relating to the value of human life or the morality of valuing a life over. When you start to wonder if this whole "shedding" procedure is even possible, you are forced to accept that it is. Instead of being about Damian coming to terms with his new body and life, it chooses the path of gun fights and car chases. This is the moment when the film falls into the realm of mediocrity. It isn't revolutionary. The twists will not come as much of a surprise either. The film managed to keep my attention but I would of preferred it to cover more of the philosophical issues relating to the procedure. The film has a good idea but it could have been portrayed in a different/better way.

Definitely not bad as few reviewed!

Well, this is my first review. After I read the reviews I was in two minds, whether to watch or not. Then I thought I'll give it a try, mainly coz of Ryan & Tarsem (The Fall, I loved it). I would say right from the start the movie gets us involved and it keeps the same pace throughout. I'll not give away much details so yeah do give it a try, you'll not regret it.

Reminded me of "Seconds" starring Rock Hudson

The film interested me because I was correct in thinking that it would be a remake of an old John Frankenheimer film called "Seconds" The original starred Rock Hudson in a much darker premise where a salesman wants to change his life (rather than is dying) - I won't reveal any more in case you want to check it out for yourself. Self/less otherwise stands up in its own right and is reasonably entertaining which is my main yardstick for a film. There are mixed reviews around the normally excellent Ben Kingsley's contribution - personally I couldn't get past his accent. Ryan Reynolds played the part well but not as an "ex military" type so possibly miscast here. Apart from trying too hard to tie up the loose ends it was otherwise a good story.
