On July 4th, my latest IGN review went live. It’s of the new Ryan Reynolds/Ben Kingsley movie, “Self/Less,” which is directed by Tarsem Singh. Opening in theaters this Friday, the movie tells the story of what happens when one dying man, Kingsley, undergoes a process to move his consciousness into another body, Reynolds.
Sure, you may have seen Reynolds in another body switch movie, but “The Change-Up” was pitched as a comedy and this is certainly supposed to be a thriller. As for how well it succeeds… well, it has some good moments but on the whole it doesn’t. If you want to read more of my thoughts on it, however, you’ll just have to venture over to IGN — no awesome voiceover person reading my thoughts to you this time out.
