In the blink of an eye is a Groundhog Day type of movie, the movie does have a nice twist when the whole Groundhog Day events start happening but the thing is; the events that leads to the beginning of the Groundhog Day marathon was just dull. The movie is an independent Christian movie done by Pure Flix Entertainment, it could have been better but it is still OK, that is if you are judging it in relation to its other independent Christian movies.
For those of you who don't know or have not seen Groundhog Day (you need to), here is a slight idea of what the 1993 (directed by Harold Ramis) Bill Murray comedy film is about: The character has to write a wrong, and in the process he gets to relive the same day over and over again, till he corrects that wrong. In the movie (which is a secular movie mind you) the character learns the whole daily routine of everyone and everything around him, and does not seem to worry about death or mishaps because he knows tomorrow is going to be today.
Same thing here the lead character had to correct a wrong; at a particular point in time rapture takes place and David (played by David A.R. White, who is onboard a boat on vacation with his wife, his friend and his wife and four other people) seems to be stuck in a moment alone with strangers, rapture happens and his wife and friends are gone, leaving him behind. But when he wakes up the next day he is back in the same day as before, his wife and friends are around. He at first thought it was a dream and didn't care till his wife and friends were taking again leaving him behind.
David finally puts two and two together and realizes that he has to fix a problem so that he can go with his family and friends during the rapture, so till David fixed the problem he kept relieving the same day.
The movie plot, although the foundation is not original, the movie building on top of the plot is neat, it carries you along, but before we get to the Groundhog Day event, we had to withstand a lot of drag stories and bad acting. The movie is a nice Christian movie, but that is just that about it, it is not spectacular. The message is clear, rapture is coming.
