Granted the movie is chock-full of pop-culture references, with young Adam even pointing out that older Adam is using a lightsaber. There’s even a mention of Back to the Future, and some promo material actually had them bring in Doc Brown himself, Christopher Lloyd.
After the success of Free Guy, it looks like Shawn Levy and Reynolds have once again struck gold with The Adam Project. A lot of fans are calling it an ode to 80s sci-fi adventure, and despite all the laughs, the series still manages to have a lot of heart. I guess we’ll just have to wait for the Netflix numbers to see how well the movie really did.
If anything, it looks like Reynolds and Levy will be working together for a lot longer. It’s just been announced that Levy will be directing the third Deadpool movie, and while his movies have been more family-friendly, I think he’s the perfect kind of director that can take Reynolds’ unique humor and infuse it into an action flick. Hopefully they finally have a story that doesn’t keep bouncing into multiple points in the timeline, because it honestly got old by the second film.
Adam Reed (Walker Scobell), age 13, and still grieving the sudden death of his father (Mark Ruffalo) a year earlier, walks into his garage one night to find a wounded pilot hiding there. This mysterious pilot (Reynolds) turns out to be the older version of himself from the future, where time travel is in its infancy. He has risked everything to come back in time on a secret mission. Together they must embark on an adventure into the past to find their father, set things right, and save the world.
The three working together, both young and grown Adam come to terms with the loss of their father and have a chance to heal the wounds that have shaped them. Adding to the challenge of the mission, the two Adams discover they really don’t like each other very much, and if they’re going to save the world, they’re first going to have to figure out how to get along.
In the meantime, catch The Adam Project now streaming on Netflix.
