Movie Review: The Adam Project

Looking for a movie with the perfect balance of heartwarming scenes and hilariousness and Ryan Reynolds on top? Well, The Adam Project on Netflix is a mixture of all three of those! 

This sci-fi movie is not only filled with amazing scenes, but also great acting, as it stars Ryan Reynolds, Jennifer Garner, Mark Ruffalo, Zoe Saldaña, and new actor Walker Scobell. 

Ryan Reynolds’ character, Adam Reed, is from the future, and after accidentally crashing his jet back into 2022 he is met with his younger self (played by Scobell) who he must now team up with to save the future, despite the older Reed seeing his younger self as a thorn in his side. The movie shows the trials and tribulations of being faced with your younger self, as well as having the fate of the world lie in your hands, in a comedic yet moving way.

Reynolds is known for his quick witted remarks and comedic timing in almost all of his roles, and it is safe to say that he has certainly met his match! Scobell delivers a hilarious performance as the younger version of Adam, doing so unbelievably well for his first role.

Scobell, who was also just casted as the title character in the upcoming Disney+ Percy Jackson series is one of the best parts of the movie, delivering most of the tender speeches and witty remarks. 

Everything about this movie is the definition of perfect. The special effects are so believable that I was starting to become convinced time travel and incinerating guns were real! The movie brings many topics to the table such as reflection on past actions, regrets with life choices, appreciating the crucial family bonding time, and a sizzling side romance where the chemistry is off the charts.

The Adam Project is definitely going to become the movie of 2022, so you better go ahead and watch it!
