The Adam Project – IGN
We have pretty much given up movie night here at the Lewises because our taste in movies is so different. My husband loves ACTION – action at any cost – VIOLENCE – the more violent, the better.
I want a plot, a story I can get my teeth into. I want characters I care about. I want real acting. I don’t mind a lot of action, but I don’t want that, and special effects, to be the most important part of the movie. I want to CARE who wins. I want to FEEL, not just cringe.
Amazingly, my husband found a movie we both loved last night, called, “The Adam Project.” It came out in 2022. It starred Ryan Reynolds, Walker Scobell, Zoe Saldana, Jennifer Garner, and Mark Ruffalo, among others. It has a science fiction theme, featuring time travel. “Even though the movie has the “Back to the Future” aesthetic, it touches on an overall theme of family, loss and healing.” ~ IGN
I found Ryan Reynolds to have a really appealing face and decided that he’s a very good actor, though this is the first time I remember him playing something other than a super hero. Walker Scobell, the boy in the movie, has a wonderfully expressive face and plays a feisty, loveable character. There is realness and humor, plus I teared up several times. A good amount of CGI and special effects, but used to enhance the story.
If you haven’t seen this movie, I highly recommend it.
