Timetravelling, the apocalypse and true love - sounds promising? Well, it isn't. First of all: the concept of time travel is used without any sense in the film, which annoys me, but maybe not everybody will find this disturbing. The movie is full of clichés, normal guy needs to save the world, but is really a hero, love seems doomed, but turns out stronger even than the apocalypse! Hooray. Even bystanders applaud when the two main characters find each other with a passionate kiss that seems to come out of the blue, how original. The time travel clichés are also present: a little change can make events develop totally differently (yeah, yeah, we know that by now). The clumsiness of the main character is too much, too stereotypical, and a mere attempt to imitate other films with similar anti-heroes. The situation in which somebody from the future who never had any alcohol goes totally drunk after one beer is also really-just-not-new. I'm being honest, I like movies, and nothing in this one seems to be original, it's an accumulation of poor copies of concepts that we have encountered in many films before.
So aren't there any good things in this movie? Well, there are, some. Some dialogs (but not many) are quite funny, and the setting in Barcelona is warm and nice, the photography is quite all right though not exceptional. I wouldn't recommend anyone to go and see this movie at all.
