Storyline

A ferry filled with crewmen from the USS Nimitz and their families was blown up in New Orleans on Mardi Gras. BATF Doug Carlin is brought in to assist in the massive investigation, and gets attached to an experimental FBI surveillance unit, one that uses spacefolding technology to directly look back a little over four days into the past. While tracking down the bomber, Carlin gets an idea in his head: could they use the device to actually travel back in time and not only prevent the bombing but also the murder of a local woman whose truck was used in the bombing? Written by Jeff Cross

Trivia

The Lab set was built on a sound stage in Los Angeles by production designer Chris Seagers. Seagers wanted to combine a raw-edged, high-tech feel in which everything is digital and state-of-the-art; yet have exposed cables, wires, and ducts to provide a sense of reality. See more »

Goofs

In the compound scene a St. Martin Parish Sheriff's car can be seen parked in the background. New Orleans is located in Orleans Parish, over 150 miles away from St. Martin Parish. A St. Martin Parish Sheriff's deputy would not have jurisdiction in Orleans Parish. While this would normally be correct in post Katrina New Orleans there were many officers from many different jurisdictions in state and out of state. See more »

Reality Crime Thriller With Neat Sci-Fi Twist
16 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I usually like sci-fi when it's pure sci-fi. I usually like present day drama when it's believably real. Disaster, at least for me, looms large when sci-fi meets real life drama. So here we have a present day crime thriller crossed with sci-fi time travel...And, this movie kicks butt, works so well, in fact, it's nuances should be studied in film school. It's original enough to be compelling-where we are not in some distant future, but the here and now.

The story, the characters, and the effects mesh well to suspend belief to the point that you "get on-board" and enjoy the ride. This is the way to do sci-fi with believable real life situations. The cinematography, the implementation of technology, and even a beautiful (but presently dead) damsel in distress, combine to give the actors, who are uniformly good to excellent, the boost to put this in rarefied good sci-fi territory. Genre fans are shoo-ins and those who think they don't like sci-fi should enjoy this one too. 7.5 to 8 out of 10.
