Could have been much better, a bit slow at some points. Good story overall
I rather enjoyed it actually, even though ending in today's movies are predictable
Bad bad bad! low budget, awful. don't waste your time.
Probably the year's best hidden gem, the film was horribly marketed and probably turned a lot of potential viewers off with its silly trader. This is a great action drama.
It was good
Interesting plot. Dragged a little, but worth seeing.
They could have done a lot more with the story line. Very predictable. More like a made for TV movie. Ryan's acting was good.
Nice movie, which have a little of everything (action, romance)
How far would you go to provide for your family? Family man, Marine - Mark is willing to Die to ensure his daughter receives the medical care she desperately needs. Shedding gives a terminally ill person the chance to continue on living in a new healthy body. Unfortunately, once you realize these "new" bodies have a few miles on them the true horror comes to the surface. Well written, well acted - do you root for the family man to come back from the dead or the man who stood up and said the price was too high and it needed to be stopped. Excellent movie
great movie Ryan Reynolds does a fabulous job.
The movie was a good trillers it touches a subject that everybody dream about immortality I really give it a 3.5 stars I've enjoyed it
The concept of the story was interesting yet scary at the same time as technology nowadays makes anything seem possible, but the execution was a bit meh~ many corny scenes and serious ones where the audience would be snickering but watching Ryan Reynolds' bod made everything alright.
Although the movie is not realistic I did enjoy it. Ryan Reynolds does a great job in the role he plays. If you are an individual who likes Science Fiction you would probably like this type of movie.
I had a great time with this movie, and I would recommend it to friends & family. My nephew enjoyed so much that he is going back on Friday to see it again, and said he will buy the movie. thank you gabriel
Very predictable film. They could have done a lot more with it. They should have used Ben Kingsley much more, to show the struggle between his and Ryan Reynolds' characters for control of the person. But then again, that's been done in the Superior Spider-Man comics.
I was somewhat confused by the plot in this movie .I still don't really understand what happened. However, I was on the edge of my seat throughout and watched it intensely. Ryan Reynolds was amazing in his role!! I liked the ending..don't want to say what happened as a spoiler!!
I enjoyed the movie. The story line was interesting and it had a happy ending I thought. I would recommend this movie.
good movie, however, the violence was a little over the top
I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. Ryan Reynolds really impressed me with his acting skills in this one. He usually relies on the comedic hooks, but this was a pretty serious role. His fight scenes and physicality were also fantastic, showing a possible hint at future action star status. I would defiitely recommend people see this
Watched it this afternoon... great performances. Thrilling action sequences, creative story line, great pace, never boring sort of predictable ending but overall a fantastic film.
The movie Self/Less was excellent! It was riveting and had a great ending. I would highly recommend it to anyone that enjoys a good story that makes you think. The acting was very good and the lead character outstanding!
This movie presents a very interesting concept. There are some beautiful minds around us whose lives could be extended so that their work does not have to be ended by the decay of their physical body. But that can be done only at the expense of another human life. So, obviously, buying a new life is a high item of expenditure and it attracts a certain clientele. Selling a life is attracting a certain clientele, too. The buyer of the new life finds himself living the life of the body he lives in. But he did not know all this at the beginning of the process, so his mission is to make things right. The cast is beautiful, the actors play their characters very well, and they carry the story line in an entertaining way. The suspense is there and the movie keeps you alert from the beginning to the end.
We really enjoy Self/Less. It was a bit of action, drama and kept you interested all the way through. A few twists throughout the movie kept you guessing as to what was coming up. The actors/actresses were great and seen in a lot of movies. I would recommend seeing it, a bit of a Sci-fi movie of the future.
Good movie and Ryan Reynolds looks good!!!!
Self/less would have to be one of the best movies I have seen in a long time Ryan Reynolds portrayed his character perfectly
Great movie. Original and captivating
This was a good movie , had to pay attention hard story to follow lots of action and unusal events and mind blowing science fiction
It was a good movie overall. Beyond imagination!
The plot of the story was quite refreshing as I don't remember a story like this done recently or ever.
Loved it, just enough thrill to make this movie interesting. Very good futuristic movie, will surely be a success when it opens
My husband and I enjoyed the movie. It really makes you think about the way science is progressing or regressing whichever way you want to take it. Thank you for the opportunity of seeing the movie.
Hi! Me and my husband were both surprise of how the story went. We have enjoyed our night out, because of you. Many THANKS! Louise
I loved the movie I thought that it was very suspenseful and I would recommemd it to eveyone . I would give it a 9out of 10.
Ben Kingsley was, of course, great in his own small part in this movie. The storyline, although a little futuristic, was just enough for me, enough that is to be interesting. Furthermore I did sit on the edge of my seat in some of the scenes.The movie did have a great story to it and I really enjoyed it
Self/less was entertaining to the last minute. Super cool idea and very thrilling. LOVE IT!
The acting was solid thanks to Ben Kingsley and Ryan Reynolds and the script quite interesting and suspenseful. The topic promoted post-movie discussion of brain transfers and such.
I was very disappointed in this movie. Ryan Reynolds is one of my favourite actors but was lacking in this role. The story line seems exciting but the movie didn't have a time where it picked up at all. The flashbacks were confusing and hard to follow at times. It was a long movie that I was glad to be over
Self/Less is a movie that can be watched on a number of levels. It can be seen as a story of wealth and power for personal ease and gain. It can also be seen as a story where science has ventured far beyond human ethics into the scary realm. The movie was believable and unbelievable in flow, as the old, sick wealthy protagonist took over the poor but healthy body of another. This was a good and thought provoking story. We enjoyed it, and would recommend others to see it.
better than i thought. i would recommend to my friends
Loved the twist and turns, great excitement. Gives you thoughts on what you would redo in your life when you get a second.
Very good thriller with great acting from both Ryan Reynolds & Ben Kingsley. Part scifi & action/thriller will keep the audience on the edge of their seats!
I really enjoyed Self/less. It captured my attention throughout the showing, was exciting, and had good twists.
It was ok, but lacked a bit of spark.
Self/Less was a very suspenseful movie, full of action and excitement. I would recommend this movie as a must see for the summer. I really enjoyed watching it and loved the acting. Ryan Reynolds was a pleasure to watch.
Self/less is a fantastic movie. It is directed no created by the genius Tarsem Singh (The Cell). The acting is good, and the plot is very interesting. The movie is about 2 hours long, but it went by so fast, as the pacing was just right. The movie is very well put together and the visuals for some sequences are extremely well done. I highly recommend this film.
I really enjoyed the story line, and the suspense involved. The idea wasn't that original though. It was very slow in some parts, I wish it would have moved along into the action quicker.
Although I'm not a huge fan of sci-fi movies, I have to admit this one was creative and original so it kept my interest peaked. Not bad at all!
