Ben Kingsley and Ryan Reynolds are lovers who move into their first town house together then try to adopt a baby from Korea who…. wait a minute… wrong movie.
Ben Kingsley plays a billionaire who is diagnosed with cancer and seeks out information about an experimental procedure known as Shedding. The gist of it is that they can transfer anybody’s consciousness from one body to another. Thus, allowing anyone with the right amount of money to become somewhat immortal.
So, Ben Kingsley’s consciousness is then transferred into the body of Ryan Reynolds. Ryan Reynolds then goes on to star as Deadpool in… sorry, wrong movie again.
Anyway, it turns out that the previous inhabitant of Ryan Reynolds’ body was thoroughly trained to be a killing machine by some covert branch of the military. So, I guess it’s kind of like watching a super young Ben Kingsley kick some serious ass.
There’s an interesting plot twist towards the end. I shall describe it for you….. just kidding! I won’t ruin the ending but you really should watch it.
On a scale of 1 tamale to 10 tamales I give Selfless a tasty 8 tamales! Mmmm tamales! 😎
