‘The Adam Project’ highlights the value of time and inner child healing
While watching The Adam Project, I couldn’t help but wonder what life would be like if time travel does exist. It is especially heartwarming when Adam (Ryan Reynolds) gets to meet his younger self and confront issues in the past. It turned therapeutic when past hurts and regrets were revisited. It is an entertaining reminder of the value of time.
Feelings of wanting to meet people in the past, including my younger version, were evoked.
The Adam Project is something exciting yet oddly familiar. It brings in nostalgia and fun memories of Back to the Future and even E.T.
The plot offers an emotional experience that hits very close to home as it tackles inner child healing, familial relationships, and romantic love.
I lost count of how many times I reached for some tissues as I was moved by a lot of scenes. Whether it’s dealing with your childhood bully or wishing you could have spent more time with a loved one, the scenes will surely be relatable at one point.
What I truly consider this movie’s strength is the casting. Each star assigned to a character has effectively given life to his or her role. Standing out for me are Ryan Reynolds and Walker Scobell whose comic timings were impeccable. And they both delivered even in scenes that crush the heart.
