Film Review | Selfless
I mentioned this film in my recent September Favourites video, and since I thought it was such a good film, I thought it would be nice to write a quick review on it. I’m not going to go too in-depth with this but rather just tell you a bit about and my overall thoughts.
An extremely wealthy man, dying from cancer, undergoes a radical medical procedure that transfers his consciousness into the body of a healthy young man. But all is not as it seems when he starts to uncover the mystery of the body’s origin and the organisation that will kill to protect its cause.
I think the best bit of the film firstly was seeing the sexy piece of man hunk that is Ryan Reynolds topless on-screen. Ha! But no, apart from that there were great scenes. A few good action sequences, and although it is overall a predictable film in the sense that you know the “good guy” will win (or will he?) it was still an enjoyable watch.
I don’t want to ruin it for those of you who haven’t watched it yet so I’ll keep the best bits to a minimum.
Overall, it was a good film that I would definitely watch again. There isn’t much romance and it’s pretty much a straight action/thriller film with a bit of sci-fi thrown in there. So if you like a good action film definitely check this out when it comes on TV/DVD – you won’t be disappointed. Watch the trailer for the film below.
