One of the most disconcerting things about the movie was that the actors playing most of the more prominent male roles all looked kinda alike, like they came from the same family or clone batch, or something, a batch of slightly plump pasty/pale-skinned white males of medium height with nearly-identical greasy/greased-back hairstyles, and brown hair, and vaguely-similar facial features, and this made it kinda hard to tell male characters apart at times. I realize that the movie was made in Canada, and that many Canadians are likely rather inbred due to geography and socio-economic realities, but nonetheless, the obvious inbreeding of most of the male characters in this movie was rather overdone, and kinda scary. Like, what does this portend for the future of the human race?
However, ultimately, the show was bearable, and the acting was not so poor and painful to watch that I was ever tempted to turn off the film and scream in horror, which has been the case with many other amateurish indie films that have been trumpeted at Amazon.
And at least the reviews for movies here on Amazon are largely real reviews by real people, rather than the film reviews at Neflix, which seem to be largely 4-star and 5-star reviews written by shills or by PC-based robotic software apps.
So, bottom line is that if you like sci-fi, and you like time-travel films, and you know about retrocausality, and you can tolerate indie films which are kinda amateurish but not overly bad, you will likely like this movie.
After you get past these screw ups, you somehow manage to get to the end (hey, it's a time device) there is no explanation how the machine was found... and by the way, that machine could have been way better imagined instead of an old cable box with a big knob...
I will say the it kept entertained but who am I to say ?? I'm a sucker for time travel movies .... watch with a "pinch of salt"...
I would say it's worth spending 1 hour and 19 minutes
The tense (literary); action (cinematic) of this 70s/80s style film one degree higher than the Bionic Man, caused me or made me predisposed to mostly use the FFW button.
Now the ending --how unconventional. Spoil Alertness: read all the credits, its a must, or the the time is nigh, not!
Worst movie I've made myself endure for oh maybe...35 min all told, throughout most of which my curiosity was mildly stimulated and mind driven to write this bad review of mine concerning a movie for which it is not fair of me to judge 'cause I did not give it the chance it deserves. But a 2star is better than one ---curiosity mildly stimulated , as I said, implies entertainment value.
Maybe I will give it a better 'go' in future. Thanks for the freebie Amazon ( you deserve thanks , given that you charge, and a lot , for stuff , and far far worse ----some with 80% less running time, like Oceanus, which I bought by mistake, and you wouldn't refund since I didn't catch the acct debit for 3 days)
Phone conversations were strained because of delays - obviously voice-over which did not sync correctly.
Terrible stiff acting (until the later third, by the 2 main actors) on a crude and clumsy script.
Sound editing was amateur. Different camera angles had different noise levels and sound profiles (from tinny to bassy to washed out within any given scene)
The 'reverse' scene in the pizza place was too long and obvious that someone was very preoccupied with regurgitation.
Most of it was beyond credibility in a bad way. We are expected to believe that Damon has this super secret box to figure out, and he does it in a public park?
I have seen PLENTY of low budget films that were not super low quality, so budget is no excuse to me.
And the 'no copy' message that kept flashing on the bottom of the screen was VERY annoying (who would WANT to copy any of this?)
The story idea was ultimately entertaining, but it took a lot of patience to get through the terrible execution.
So my point is, if you can stomach the hacked, clumsy, weak efforts and you have nothing better to watch, the last half is somewhat entertaining.
So I am going to rate this right down the middle.
On top of a bad movie, the movie maker keeps flashing "property of something or other media, duplication prohibited" or something similar about every minute on the bottom of the screen.
No one would want to duplicate this film so they could have skipped that major annoyance.
Not worth watching unless someone else completely redoes the movie from scratch using this idea.
