User Reviews: This is the kind of movie that could be decent, but becomes unwatchable because the director’s so in love with his/her techniques. The plot’s not groundbreaking, but it is different from most time travel movies where you keep going back in time. Unfortunately, the director likes the soundtrack and sloooooow motion so much he keeps using it over and over, resulting in something you may enjoy if you love meaningless pontification on our existence or what-not. That is, the film doesn’t provide for it but David what’s-his-name probably wants you to ponder and reminisce during the frequent slooow-motion rewinding of history. The premise is hard to believe already. It’s a shame he decides to be clever with techniques. Over and over and over again.
