He's not bad when he's not appearing in movies.

I didn't know people disliked Ryan Reynolds.

Starting to get fatigued by him, certainly.  He's overexposed at the moment.

He's got a schtick. It's a good schtick. Like all schticks it can get too much.

I guess I just haven't seen him in a ton of things lately. Deadpool 2 and Free Guy are the only things in recent memory; haven't watched this yet, to be fair.

Mildly entertaining if a bit slight/unfocused.  Agree it is a decent family sci-fi flick.  I can almost hear the elevator pitch of "what if E.T. was you from the future".

One thing I liked about this movie is Ryan Reynolds actually showed an emotion a time or two. He actually stretched out beyond sarcasm. I saw two whole emotions in this movie.

That said, it was basically an 80s kid's movie and I quite enjoyed it even if the ending did have a fairly major plot hole in my opinion.

No movie that uses magnetic forces as part of an action scene ever makes them remotely plausible, so my brain is trained to just ignore that shit by default now.  I was more bothered by the fact that there was no delay in the "timeline catching up" effect, since we'd already established that it's not instantaneous.

Anyway, movie overall was fun.  I particularly enjoyed all the ridiculous lightsaber shit.
