naked girl in the midst of the forest. A cloaked stranger with his face covered in bandages. A disquieting
mansion on the top of a hill. All of them pieces of an unpredictable jigsaw puzzle where terror, drama and suspense will lead to an unthinkable sort of crime. Who's the murderer? Who's the victim?

Here is another Amazon buyer's take on the Blockbuster version:
I've watched the original movie 3 times in Spanish with English subtitles, but this version is dubbed in English. After renting it once before and giving up, I finally decided to try watching the dubbed version. Worst mistake ever.
Not only is the voice dubbing really poor, the whole thing is badly synchronized. So you hear the guy scream and then 3 seconds later he gets stabbed. WHAT??? You'd think those parts wouldn't need dubbing and could use the original audio? Well you're wrong. This was clearly dubbed as a 3rd grade class project which somehow because the official dubbing.
In case I haven't made it clear. the dubbing is REALLY BAD. DO NOT RENT!
Not that it matters, but it also doesn't have subtitles. Which were kind of needed because the dubbing sounds like someone mumbling.
If you seek a Wells' connection you better look elsewhere, but "Elephant Man" fans will find that actor Karra Elejalde (playing Hector - the main character) puts John Merrick to shame in the homely department. That poor guy is so ugly that his face actually looks better sporting the assortment of bumps, cuts, and bruises he receives during the course of the film.
"Timecrimes" is a solid time travel movie, although minimalist enough to be within reach of an ambitious college film class. The script and minimalist style are are the film's strengths. My advice would be to just take it for what it is and suppress any temptation to question the characters' motivation and behavior. As there is no attempt at characterization such questioning is a waste of time. The acting and the acting for the camera direction are so uniformly poor that most will be grateful that the characterization is so superficial, thereby saving viewers from a lot of unnecessary torture.
And don't get hung up on how the cycle started, it starts without cause at the point a time machine becomes operational. Just think of it as a literary device, something that simply occurs once it becomes possible for something like it to occur.
Time travel in the movies is typically about paradox.Read more ›
