Directed by Shawn Levy
Starting Ryan Reynolds, Mark Ruffalo, Jennifer Gardner, Zoe Saldaña
I had read and heard good things about this movie that reunites Reynolds and Levy who both worked on Free Guy.
The film is about Adam. He is thirteen and he is having trouble in school, getting in fights, and getting suspended. When one day while at his house he meets his future self and both go on an adventure trying to save the world after someone used time travel to alter things that happened.
When it comes to time travel, the stories are often complex. This one for me was simple but perfect. I loved the film. I thought the story was great and it had a good balance of action, comedy, and moving moments between the characters. The visuals were also very good and the action sequences looked great.
For the first time in a while, I can say I enjoyed a Ryan Reynold film. I think it’s because here I saw a character and he did not fall on his usual persona that I feel he brings to his films, there are moments but they are few and work for the film. Walker who played young Adam did his role because he was supposed to be annoying and not likable at first and he did that well but was also able to showcase the changes in the character. Gardner and Ruffalo are both great, as well as Zoe Saldaña in their supporting roles.
This was a nice surprise for me. It is a good story, a lot of great action sequences, and just a fun film to see.
