★★★ Watched 15 Apr, 2022
It’s a fun action adventure filled with signature Ryan Reynolds witty comedy and a handful of great action sequences. An enjoyable ride, especially watching with my 9-year-old, but the plot gets bogged down under its own time travel trope. I appreciated 80s SciFi references like the E.T. homage in the forest and some Star Wars nods. The kid (Walker Scobell) is great and reminds me a bit of Henry Thomas’ performance in E.T., also I would have loved seeing more of Zoe Saldana.
Overall a satisfying quick snack that doesn’t leave much of a mark either way. I do like the Drew Struzan-inspired poster.
