Storyline

Daniel loses his wife and son in a car accident. While slowly recovering from his injuries, he rebuilds his son's video camera that was destroyed in the crash. Infused with power from the moment of the crash, the camera develops the ability to stop time when Daniel presses the pause button. This discovery restores Daniel's purpose, and he fills the vacuum in his life by taking responsibility for another victim, Sarah, a newlywed who lost her husband in the same accident. At first Daniel only watches her, then tries to improve her life in small ways. But using his power to "help" becomes an addiction, and the vastness of Daniel's power can do only one thing...corrupt him. Written by Anonymous

Good movie suffers a loss of direction......
27 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a very good indie movie for what that's worth. The climax is a bit of a let down however and it seems that at about 3/4 through the story loses direction. I was expecting some type of revelation or closure but instead the ending is a bit disastrous.

The character with the power does however do many of the things we would expect from a real human being rather than one from TV Land. His ultimate abuse of that power is of course his downfall, which was to be expected, but they really take things all the way.

The one thing that never happened and I kept waiting for, which disappointed me, was at no point did he hit the rewind button.

I do however keep finding these low key movies to be very well made and the last chance at redemption for the entertainment industry as a whole. A lot more films are being made these days, in fact more than ever before, and these off the spotlight radar works are the ones most worth watching.
