Great cast, Great effects, Great acting and Great plot. Can I ask for anything else?!

Action/SciFi/Thriller. What haven't we seen in this genre? In the case of SELF/LESS, nothing. The evil scientist. The pining female companion. The adorable little girl. It's all color by numbers. But Ryan Reynolds is a bankable star. He's proven that by now. And Ben Kingsley is Ben Kingsley. Always engaging. The problem here, among many, is the consciousness swapping narrative hook is portrayed in such a way as to be about as convincing as Ed Wood's PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE.

This was a very intriguing movie. Warning: contains language, taking of Our LORD's name in vain and Brief strong sexual content. In this one, the truth wins!

Ryan Reynolds and Ben Kingsly were great. Overall this is a more or less mediocre movie. Worth a watch if you have the time to kill and you don't have to pay for it.

Enjoyable with some suspenseful weirdness.

Excellent thriller that is clever and engaging. This is one of the few movies that I would have paid to see in a theatre and not felt ripped off upon leaving.

Excellent film. Ben Kingsley is only in it for a short while but is powerful as always. Ryan Reynolds does a really good job carrying the storyline. NOT filled with action but rather makes you think. Somewhat predictable, yes, but still thoroughly watchable.

snoozefest. i was so bored. the acting is wooden and you could tell the dialouge was written by somone was was not very well aquanted with the english language. wich i feel hurt the film with clunky exposition and monlouges.
i was so bored with it. i felt sorry for the actors.

also listen to the directors commentary on it its a interesting insight into the brain of the director who knows its bad yet never stops to make weird explanations and comments that really make little sense. its really bizzare commentary for such a bad film.

Mediocre, predictable, boring, lame, shallow and there's nothing new about it.

Dr.: Just think of all the great minds that this world has lost simply because their bodies were failing. Edison, Einstein, Steve Jobs. Yes, what he could have accomplished with another 50 years on this planet...
===
Dr.: You know, Damian, every medical advance has a cost.
Damian: These choices that you're making and what you're doing, they don't make you a savior. You know that, right? They make you a psychopath.
Dr.: I understand that you feel that way. Initially, I tried for years to grow the vessels. Of course I did. But my failure held everything up. Eventually, I'll succeed. And all this unpleasantness will be seen as nothing more than birth pangs, I'm sure.
