    SELF/LESS

    Self/Less is, in a word, disappointing. The movie has all the ingredients in place -- including the right director -- for a brainy Sci-Fi film but instead settles for a slick but still second-rate Action bore-fest that's neither creative nor exciting. The movie works well enough as a mindless romp through a litter of potential that the movie seems almost afraid to touch, but anyone expecting even a modicum of dramatic satisfaction should look elsewhere. Universal's Blu-ray release of Self/Less does offer top-shelf video and audio. Supplements are of the standard commentary and featurette variety. Rent it.

    As long as there is somebody willing to give up their young body for a price, you can live forever, that is the concept in Self/Less, you can actually maintain your mind within another human body, over and over again as long as you can afford it... the story is a good futuristic medical concept, of course only benefit a few ..I really like the movie it moved fast, does not give you enough pause to answer a lot of huh moments, all in all it is entertaining, I saw it because I am a fan of Ryan and Ben Kingsley...was not disappointed...recommended viewing

    Self/less was an interesting movie, it sustained my interest and is now a part of my collection. I don't want to ruin it for anyone, but prior to knowing what actually happened to the persons Involved I could only imagine the possibilities of a second chance, or more, to make different choices in life, but at what cost and is it really a fountain of youth, another chance of life, a sick or dying person to be healthy again? What happens to others involved? Watch and find out!

    Not an average scifi flick

    This movie was not what I expected. The action felt convenient but not overdone and the story was unique in a sea of carbon copies of movies we see today. It was a little more slow burn than I would like it to be but I thought the actors were convincing in Their respective roles. The movie was beautifully set in New Orleans, a place we don't too often see in film. I would love for more people to see this gem of a film.

    A very good movie that shows that some people with money will go to any lengths to be immortal, or try to be! As the saying goes, be careful what you wish for because you might just get it; and in this case it wasn't to his advantage in the long run. That's why we enjoy the movie's, an escape from reality!

    After a consistent consecutive attempt to be entertained via cinematic experiences I was utterly afraid to open this movie, but I over came this feeling after boredom settled upon me. I was pleased that the movie had captured my attention and kept it . It had a twist to in towards the end . good movie very entertaining

    Worth Watching

    This is an average movie, although it is entertaining. Without giving away anything, I thought there could have been more development into the mind transfer process and the set around it was a little like a B movie design. Other than that it was very entertaining and worth watching.
