Whilst not quite sparse enough to be considered anomalies, British sci-fi thrillers are rare beasts. As such, you have to at least admire the ambition in Noel Clarke’s third directorial feature – titled The Anomaly – if not the execution.
Set in the near future, the Memento-inspired plot is centred on grizzled ex-soldier Ryan (Clarke), who wakes up sans-memory in the back of a van with a kidnapped boy. After 9 minutes and 47 seconds Ryan blacks out, only to reawaken several days later in a new location. This cycle keeps repeating itself, and each ten minute rebirth brings with it a new set of clues as to Ryan’s predicament.
The core idea at the heart of The Anomaly is a good one, and Simon Lewis’ potential laden script sets it up well. In the decidedly strong first act we’re just as bewildered as our protagonist, frantically trying to piece together what’s going on. »

If something doesn't feel quite right about British sci-fi thriller The Anomaly, it's because the script should have spent longer in development. As a director and producer (this time not a writer), Noel Clarke proves that you don't have to throw a lot of money at the screen to create the right atmosphere, but it takes more than a few nifty camera tricks and digital effects to draw an audience in.
Clarke also has the starring role, as Ryan, an apparent hostage who wakes up in the back of a van where a boy called Alex (Art Parkinson) is begging for his help. Ryan has no memory of how they got there and barely a grasp of his own identity, although judging by his skills in hand-to-hand combat, he's not your average civilian. »

Review by Andrew McArthur
Set in the future, a former-soldier Ryan (Clarke) wakes up holding a young boy captive, with no memory of how he got there. After nine minutes forty-seven seconds, he blacks out waking up several days later in a new location with a mysterious figure (Ian Somerhalder), until blacking out again. In these brief moments of consciousness it is up to Ryan to piece together his surroundings, until he gradually discovers a wider conspiracy featuring bio-technology and mind control.
The Anomaly finds Noel Clarke in an ambitious mood. Taking centre stage, and directing a feature for the third time, this is a science fiction film that demands concentration and works hard within its limits. And it opens really very strongly too. Clarke's character, Ryan, wakes up in the back of a van, with just minutes to work out what's happening. One quick escape later, and the mystery of the film gradually begins to unfold.
For we learn that Clarke's character here - coincidentally in a film not a million miles away from Edge Of Tomorrow in theme - is a man who has a small amount of time, before he drifts into unconsciousness, only to wake up somewhere else in the world, and sometimes much later on. So what's going on? Well, »
Four years after his last directorial outing 4321, Noel Clarke steps back into the director's chair for The Anomaly - a high-concept sci-fi thriller that star Ian Somerhalder has dubbed "The Bourne Identity meets Memento".
As if calling the shots wasn't demanding enough, Clarke also takes on the lead role, playing a soldier who only experiences consciousness for 9 minutes and 47 seconds at a time. It's dizzying for his protagonist, and for the audience along for the ride too. Digital Spy sat down with Clarke to discuss making the film, throwing in Doctor Who cameos and why he's still reaching for the stars.
I just really liked the fact that Simon had written something that could be quite high concept, but at the same »
The Anomaly focuses around traumatised ex-soldier Ryan (Clarke) who wakes up in the back of a van, alongside a kidnapped boy. Ryan helps him escape but when he finds a mask in his pocket he comes to an appalling realisation…. But there’s no time to act – after 9 minutes and 47 seconds of consciousness it all goes black.
What does this have to do with Ryan’s past as a patient at the experimental Medical Unit? Ryan has a lot of questions, and very little time to find any answers.

In the blisteringly hot mid-summer of 2013 HeyUGuys were whisked away to a warehouse in East London to see one of this summer’s big British films, Noel Clarke’s The Anomaly, be shot. As soon as we walked into the warehouse, all sunshine was lost, and we found ourselves in a garish corridor, deep reds from floor to wall, and windowed booths every other step. This, apparently, is part of a brothel set on the sci-fi film’s shoot, and is being used at this point to house crew and cast between takes in a bedroom just far enough away to barely hear the dialogue being shot, but the punches are clear. Just to check, I asked Noel Clarke if this is in any way a family film. “No, 100% no. Have you seen any of my films that are family films? Except maybe Fast Girls.”
Another take and from the »
