A dying real estate mogul transfers his consciousness into a healthy young body, but soon finds that neither the procedure nor the company that performed it are quite what they seem.
A sci-fi thriller so derivative of John Frankenheimer’s masterfully paranoid Seconds it would be more accurate to call it Thirds, Tarsem Singh’s Self/less is a generic waste of a clever idea. —David Ehrlich
Tarsem Singh has a reputation for making movies that are visually stunning but woefully inert and convoluted in their storytelling (see The Cell and The Fall). Singh’s most recent film, Self/less, lives up to at least half of that reputation. —Nathan Rabin
What starts out as an interesting exploration of identity soon gives way to the uninspired, generic action flick we had feared it always was. —Bilge Ebiri
Reynolds’s failure to display the faintest trace (verbal, physical) of Kingsley’s character negates any potential mind/ body tension. Self/less? Point/less! –Mark Kermode
Essentially like John Frankenheimer’s classic ‘Seconds’, this film is still a merrymaking Thriller with enough twist and turns to make everything intriguing. —Connor Dillon (It may not be the best Sci-Fi film but at least it’s a Fun one!)
