Sci-fi, Adventure
The Adam Project poster


May 27, 2022


A bit too childish for my taste. I could do with another excellent sci-fi film, but they seem hard to come by these days. The Adam Project plays more like the 80s adventure films for kids, with a serious dash of Ryan Reynolds throws in. If that's your thing, this is probably a great film.

Adam travels back from the future to stop the time travel machine from ever being invented. He miscalculates and ends up in the wrong timeline, four years from where he should've landed. He seeks out his former self to help him out, but his enemies are on his tail, and they don't want him to interfere with history.

The budget was there, but that's about it. Reynolds plays himself again, the rest of the cast isn't too great either, the time travel mechanics are lazy, and the emotional bits don't work at all. At least the pacing is decent, and the runtime remains below the two-hour mark, Netflix could do a lot better with a budget like that though.
