Storyline

Nick Larson and his best friends Trevor Eastman and Amanda are celebrating the twentieth-fourth birthday of his girlfriend Julie Miller in a beautiful lake on a Sunday morning. Nick is expecting to be promoted in the company where he works, and Julie is planning to move to his place instead of going to New York for her Master degree. However, Nick is called by his colleague Dave Bristol, who is disputing the promotion with Nick, for a meeting with a client. While on the road, Nick has an accident and Julie and his friends die. One year later, Nick finds that he can travel in time and tries to fix the past, with tragic consequences for the future. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Goofs

Before the title sequence, when the tire of the Jeep explodes it sends the Jeep into a skid. We see a semi trailer approaching, and the driver of the truck applies the brakes hard enough to cause the trailer to jack-knife (this is shown quite clearly and dramatically). In immediately subsequent shots, however, the trailer is shown braking straight and true and there is no evidence to suggest that it was sliding sideways, but it is impossible to recover from a skidding jack-knife without stopping completely.

Not like the first
3 November 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Im guessing your looking at this based on the first which in my opinion rated a good 7-8 / 10, based on the originality, unknowns and the constant plot changes leaving you absolutely in the dark as to what was gonna happen next. This IMHO is a quite poor money making rip from the first. It follows the same plot line from the first based on time warps looking at past events but really lacks any real surprises and is kind of guessable. You pretty much need to see the first one to understand the workings behind this one completely but if you have seen the first one and found it amazing (almost donnie darko (ish)) then you will find this a very mediocre follow up. if you've not seen either i HIGHLY suggest you miss this one and watch the first. possibly stop there and don't bother watching this, it will only disappoint if you were stunned by the first. definitely not an improvement I'm sad to say after thinking the first was fantastic. Pity as i was hoping of soooo much from this film
