‘THE ADAM PROJECT’: A NETFLIX SCI-FI POPCORN FLICK THAT’S ACTUALLY FUN

March 22, 2022 6 Comments

Instead of the box office, keeping viewers home (which I’m not a fan of, but that’s a topic for another day) is what is currently the “it” way to enjoy content. Netflix released its second Ryan Reynolds partnership film in as many months and this time it’s a sci-fi adventure called The Adam Project.

The Adam Project (2022) Netflix Film Review

Staying out of trouble isn’t something 12-year-old Adam (Walker Scobell) does. Instead he worries his mother (Jennifer Garner) and hurts her in ways she doesn’t let him see. Nearly two years after the death of his father, his latest trouble earns him grief not just from her but also from the principle. Home alone while his mother is on date, Adam discovers a mysterious stranger (Reynolds) hiding in his father’s old shed. Question is, who is this man bleeding over everything and how does he know who Adam is?

Anytime I see Ryan Reynolds is going to star in something, I definitely click through to see what it is. I’m not always going to watch anything he’s in, but I sit up and take notice. I’ve been a fan of his acting since 2009’s The Proposal and probably later saw Green Lantern. This film is a Shawn Levy directed title with Reynolds as a producer, and while not exactly what I anticipated, it’s certainly cool. The movie is way more in the sci-fi end of the genre than I realized. I knew it was a film that leaned into that, I just didn’t realize that all of the story would essentially embrace that with its ultra-sleek planes and weaponry or the suits the baddies wear. However it’s all cool.

The film is a good time to say the least and at best is actually a story with decent messages. Plus, what makes things a good time is the use of humor. Some of it won’t be to everyone’s liking, but most I really enjoyed and appreciated seeing something that uses HUMOR in a mostly “clean” way. Or at least in a better way than some of modern cinema. It’s funny and is something that actually made me giggle where nothing else has. The cast is all good too. We see a brief screen reunion with Mark Ruffalo and Jennifer Garner (from 13 Going on 30) which will be a people pleaser for anyone who loved that pop culture icon. There’s also Catherine Keener and Zoe Salanda too.

Filming is EPICALLY cool in all of the right and key moments which ups the sci-fi coolness. Everything about this screams night-in-with-popcorn. It’s fun and silly, and just has these shining nice moments that makes us ponder the importance of living fully and enjoying that life.

Content: the film is PG-13 for quite a bit of language. There’s sh*t, one near f-word miss and a mouthed one. There’s also a LOT of deity abuse in various different forms. Additionally the film uses most of its humor in a kind of “cruder” fashion – there’s a mention of a penis. There’s violence and bad guys do die (most don’t have faces because their uniform is a kind of silver suit with a helmet that obscures their entire face).
