Shawn Levy‘s style of humour in his films can’t be replicated. Part of it is in how he gets his talents to shine. The hilarity works in his version of Cheaper by the Dozen and Night at the Museum. What he imbues into these tales often results in a sequel or two. His latest might not get that continuation, but I’m hoping The Adam Project can lead to Project: Eve or Lilith. It’ll depend on adding a bigger biblical context to which the backstory skims through.
The father of Adam (Mark Ruffalo) is a genius and what he’s created can remake the world a dozen times over. While the present day (2022) doesn’t have the advanced tech to realise transportation now, the future has fine tuned the mechanism. He’s almost like The Ancient One in Marvel’s Avengers because he has to tell his kids it’s not a good idea to mess with time, otherwise the future would be a total wreck.
