The concept is really good. What I love about films like this is that you can actually imagine a world like this with how our technology is advancing. The film makes you question if you would want to transfer into a younger body when yours begins to give up on you. Would you want to live a second life looking like someone else?

There were a lot of action sequences that were exciting to watch but the film was quite predictable. It’s entertaining but nothing new. It is a good sci fi movie but there are better ones out there.

An exciting but standard sci fi movie!
