“Michael Keaton gives a good performance as architect Jonathan Rivers. I found the movie good and thrilling at times but it somehow lost its phase in the end. But then again thatu0026#39;s also the case with many films like Timecop and Hard Cash.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eStorywise the movie was quite good. The idea of a device which can record our personalities after death is quite interesting. A quote by Thomas Edison made in 1928, which is used in the beginning of the movie, states: u0026quot;Nobody knows whether our personalities pass on to another existence or sphere, but if we can evolve an instrument so delicate as to be manipulated by our personality as it survives in the next life such an instrument ought to record something.u0026quot; The concept of E.V.P.; (Electronic Voice Phenomenon) is elaborated on through the entire movie and it leaves us still thinking.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe directing and the way itu0026#39;s written holds up pretty good up until about 2/3 in the movie. The characters and Michaelu0026#39;s acting as a father is quite good and not flawed in any way. The story flows in a good and convincing way. But itu0026#39;s in the end where it starts to get a little hectic. Thereu0026#39;s a twist to the story which sorta destroys the original set up and it becomes a tad….well dull and inconsistent to be perfectly blunt.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eBut all in all this is an enjoyable film. Just donu0026#39;t expect to be blown away.”
