Timothy Hutton, Randy Quaid, Nicole de Boer. A college professor's life is turned upside down when he finds a police briefcase from five days in the future. But even more shocking are its contents-a file on his own death, which he must now race against time to prevent. A stunning Sci-Fi Channel miniseries event. 2 DVDs. 2004/color/4 hrs., 15 min/NR/fullscreen.

Customer Reviews

I just want to let you who love "time" stories know you should give this one a chance.

Foreshadowed, too, are a series of preliminary events which, as the days remaining are reduced, come true as predicted.

"5ive" has everything: good acting, action and suspense, a bit of sci-fi, and a well-written story line.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This thrilling mini-series takes off like a rocket from the very beginning, as physics professor J.T. Neumeyer wonders how and why he received a police file apparently from the future that contains gruesome details of his own demise. According to this strange file locked inside a futuristic briefcase made of myserious materials, he has just five days before his murder to figure out what's going on. The suspense increases as little by little, Neumeyer discovers that this may not be a clever hoax, but that his very life may depend on solving and somehow preventing his murder in a very short amount of time. And with such an unusual situation, it's a challenge to know who will believe him, and who to trust. Timothy Hutton and Randy Quaid and the rest of the case are excellent in this suspenseful science fiction thriller that keeps us on the edge of our seats through all 255 minutes.

Format: DVD
We all know we're going to die. It's just that J. T. Neumeyer (Timothy Hutton) knows exactly the time and place of his death. Neumeyer teaches college physics. When he and his daughter Jessie visit the grave of J.T.'s wife and Jessie's mom, a strange thing happens; a futuristic brief case with J.T.'s name on it appears out of nowhere. Inside J.T. finds a case file that appears to be quite old. It's about an unsolved murder. J.T.'s murder and he has five days to find out who wants to kill him and why.

This Sci-Fi Channel original mini-series has a lot going for it; Hutton, Randy Quaid both give solid performances as does Kari Matchett. The only actors truly wasted are Giancarlo Esposito and Nicole de Boer. This TV mini-series seemed to stretch things out a bit too long. It would have worked much better as a two hour or two and a half hour TV movie. Director Michael W. Watkins uses a number of annoyingly over used techinques to create additional suspense (such as slow motion and shooting scenes at a higher speed or eliminating frames to make the motion appear choppy).

A solid TV mini-series that would have worked better if it was cut down to two hours vs. nearly four, "5ive Days to Midnight" is still worthwhile. Although there were some fairly large plot holes, they weren't as noticeable until the pacing slowed down around the third hour. Worth a rental at least.

This movie is good, but I sort of agree with the former review. It lasts too long. You'd better watch it by parts as it was meant originally. You might not like this one if you're from the ones who need many explanations in the movies (as I do very often). However, those missing explanations will not keep you from understanding the movie's plot. I started a discussion forum so that people can guess how they would've filled those holes.

Finally, the movie's start is nothing great by itself. Anyone who likes fantasy and thrillers might have watched similar starings as in this movie. So the filmmakers added a lot of sci-fi effects, cheap but funny ones. The moved the camera in slow motion in some scenes, in others they show a lot of weird (or artistic) scenes behind the characters like mathematical symbols, nothing really creative but pretty. But as the movie continues it gets more and more interesting.....otherwise I wouldn't have stayed for 4 or 5 hours!

I've just watched this in the UK where it was shown on 2 nights and totalled 4 hours. I don't know if it was cut at all, or maybe in the US with more commercials, it would last 5 hours. I have been a fan of Timothy Hutton for 20 years and he is the reason I began watching it, but thought it was a well-paced and interesting thriller. Yes, the ending was a bit cheesy and I still want to know who would have been JT's original murderer - and why, but otherwise thoroughly enjoyed it. I particularly liked the fact that the time-travel aspect was wholly incidental - although like most, I guessed who sent the briefcase - and it was the thriller element that came to the fore.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
At the heart of this mini-series is a good SF idea about whether knowledge of the future enables you to change it.

There are good performances from Randy Quaid, a Kari Matchett, and Gage Golightly but the story depends on us caring whether Timothy Hutton makes it past the hour appointed for his death and Hutton doesn't build any empathy for his character. Partly this is poor writing and partly it is just lack of charisma.

The series splits into days and each of the 5 is written by a different writer and it showed. This approach my help keep long running series fresh but it loses the continuity and consistency needed for a mini-series.

The story also backs off the physics at the end, making the whole thing into more of a Disney Channel cop show than a good SF story. I expected a more competent job from a director with Michael Watkins' background.

If you decide to watch this, then rent, don't buy

Format: DVD
I have no idea what the confusion is. There are basically 5 days to the plot, unfolding sequentially with a title plate to mark each new day. It aired on Cable in two parts of about 1h 30min each. You can watch it straight through on DVD. The story is compelling, piques your curiosity, sorta like '24', but the sci-fi premise is background to a good psychological thriller.

The story is about a Physics professor, Dr. J.T. Neurameyer (Timothy Hutton), who mysteriously finds a briefcase at his dead wife's grave with "Dr J.T. Neurameyer" on it (his little daughter also has these initials), which has appeared out of a rent in the fabric of spacetime, from the future, and contains a police file on his murder 5 days from now, by gunshot square in the head, with other cuttings of events taking place.

He sets out to investigate, try and change the course of events and rescue people from events that are slated to take place, and he succeeds after a fashion, but altering events brings with it a whole new unpredictable set of consequences, for good or bad, which no one is quite sure of. Compelling, from beginning to end. The characters surely have free will and the ability to change their destiny.
