Review

An extremely wealthy man, dying from cancer, undergoes a radical medical procedure that transfers his consciousness into the body of a healthy young man. But all is not as it seems when he starts to uncover the mystery of the body's origin and the organization that will kill to protect its cause. When I saw the trailer, I was expecting a quiet little sci-fi drama about an old billionaire played by Ben Kingsley who gets the opportunity to live longer with the purchasing of a new body, played by Ryan Reynolds, and discovers his new body had a prior soul in it. The movie gave me a little more than that thanks to who the prior soul belong too and the large amount of trouble the creator of this body switching technique called shredding goes through to keep his project low key, when the billionaire freaks out about steeling another man's life. It was an action packed drama helped out with an incredible musical score. It kinda has the same vibe as a movie called Limitless starring Bradley Cooper and Robert DeNiro. The Sci-Fi concept is different but it's the same tone of coolness. Nothing in the movie is mind blowing, but it's very cool to watch and very entertaining, so I'll recommend.
