  • I thought this a surprisingly good movie, considering I'd never heard of it. I thought they could have used a different main actor but the rest of the cast were fine. I'd watch it again in the future.

  • We really appreciated the intenseness shown by Adrian Brody in this part, he's amazing. The storyline was original and fascinating and the unusual camera work was very well done. The mystery and drama continued right through to the end, and made you feel good that the impossible could be possible.

  • This story should have been told as a 2 or 3 part mini-series. There's just too much background and sub-plots to fit into a movie. Watching the deleted scenes helps a bit but the viewer is still left in the dark about too many things.

  • An intense psychological thriller with a great "mind thinking" storyline and an exceptional portrayal by Adrien Brody (as one has come to expect of his work). You really have to concentrate with this one to distinguish exactly what is happening in the time transportation scenes, but it is worth it. Anyone who enjoyed The Butterfly Effect will love this. Great movie!

  • I was surprised that this was a straight to DVD movie. Its got a cracking cast, visually is very impressive and the story is not too bad to boot. In a nutshell, a left for dead soldier comes back to life and due to an unfortunate string of events ends up in a Mental Asylum. Some how the future meets the past and it's up to the soldier to work out why.
