Time Travel Hits A Wall

Being a time travel fan I was disappointed in this film for a few reasons. I think the director could have thought out his ideas a little more, and the script, I had a feeling some of it was lost along the way. The actors needed more direction and input than they got.

I liked the ideas of the bracelet bringing people back from the dead, the trouble was the wrong characters kept getting brought back.

Jennifer Rubin is a gifted actress and the director and the writer did not help her at all in this film. She seemed confused and lost in a hopeless plot.

Billy Wirth did what he could with what was given to him in the writing and direction. It would be hard for any actor to pull off more than he did with this script. I know many Billy Wirth fans and women in general are still wondering why any normal woman would have a problem deciding between Wirth and Howell???

For the most part I liked the special effects it was the writing and length that killed me, I wanted to stop the film cut the car chase by 30 minutes and move on. Someone had a good idea but it went very wrong somewhere along the way.

Not a bad popcorn movie, will probably end up on peoples "films we hate but want to watch".
