The Adam Project | Ratings & Reviews

"The movie is a total trifle, but it’s often a diverting one — a wide-eyed sci-fi adventure with a screwball buoyancy."


"The result is neither funny nor thrilling, just exhausting."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"Depressingly familiar and faux-engaging."

The Globe and MailThe Globe and Mail

"Reynolds and Scobell’s cracking performances and the film’s surprising emotional depth make it worth a look."

Empire MagazineEmpire Magazine

"This sci-fi adventure hits the right Amblin notes."

Slash FilmSlash Film

"A high-concept but thin homage to light-hearted sci-fi romps of the past."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"Noisy and formulaic, but still occasionally enjoyable."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"Where some might single out the trashy heist caper Red Notice as the premium example this year of a star-powered, overpriced Netflix nothing, I’m looking straight down the barrel at The Adam Project."

The TelegraphThe Telegraph

"A popcorn pleasure."

"The Adam Project isn’t especially smart, but it does leave you with a warm, fuzzy feeling."

The Washington PostThe Washington Post

"Who this movie is for, I couldn’t tell ya."

New York PostNew York Post

"It’s pretty satisfying popcorn fare with some genuinely affecting beats."

Associated PressAssociated Press

"(The Adam Project is) at best aggressively okay."


"You’ll see it, possibly enjoy it, and then require your own future self to travel back, many years (or possibly even hours) from the future, and remind you that you’ve already watched it."

Rolling StoneRolling Stone

"(The Adam Project) feels more like a collection of things than a functional narrative."


"Funny, fast-paced and surprisingly tender."
