Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: Self/less boasts a potential-packed premise, but does frustratingly little with it, settling for lackluster action at the expense of interesting ideas.

Interesting sci-fi ideas wasted in routine storytelling.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Self/less is a sci-fi thriller starring Ryan Reynolds about a dying millionaire who gets the chance to buy a new body. The second half of the movie has lots of action/violence, including fighting, chasing, guns/shooting, car crashes, and houses and people on fire, though very little blood is shown. When the main character gets his new body, viewers see a montage of him kissing and falling into bed with several women; no graphic nudity is shown, but it's implied that he has many sexual partners. Language includes one "f--k" and sporadic uses of "s--t," "bitch," and "damn." Some social and/or background drinking is shown.
