Those infected by the virus go on suicide missions. All I can hope is that she survived. ...wait, what?
16 November 2010 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Time travel usually goes wrong. I think all machines designed for that purpose are legally required to have something like that written on a sticker on it. Someone certainly should have told the people of 2072. They decided to mess around with it to... "check out time". With their Advanced Prototype EXploration units(yeah, that *is* a pretty dumb abbreviation), they... well, do so. Apparently. And one of the trips have Nicholas Sinclair going back, because, uhm, something didn't go as planned(...who'da thunk?). He's recently been having nightmares about his wife disappearing by way of a cheap editing trick. This gives him a nasty case of Must Narrate Everything, in spite of the fact that, with two exceptions, what he says, *we already know*. Anyway, he ends up in an alternate time-line where the robots(and yes, there is a nice amount of sequences of humans fighting them in this... and the suits aren't bad, nor is the weaponry on them, with rockets and machineguns) they would send back(to combat the virus that going back in time would create... and they've been programmed to destroy all biological life, I guess... that was good thinking guys, honestly... how could *anyone* think that would backfire?), as these have been constantly been sent back(... automatically? And they keep being made... by who or what?) for 100 years(...wait, we've survived a century of this war?). Don't worry, the people there have figured out how to smash those metal mf-ers into... oh, wait... plus, he meets up with Duke Nukem. Perhaps you've already realized that this script wasn't authored by someone holding a Ph.d. It's pretty straightforward, and the paradoxes don't hold up to scrutiny. Yes, the AI's aim sucks when it needs to. No, the characters are stereotypical. Yes, the lead being in love with this "universe's" version of his spouse(who resembles her by appearance *only*) means he's really superficial. However, if you watched The Terminator and spent the whole time wishing the entire thing was set in the future... well, this is a fix for you. This is 96 minutes sans credits, and most of it is in a post apocalyptic, dystopian future with plenty of explosions, shooting and... well, attempts at tension. The acting is decent. There is lot of bloody violence and disturbing content and a sex scene(not graphic) in this. I recommend this to those that just want to unwind with something like this. 5/10
