Excellent
11 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

I thought this was an excellent movie. I saw it on Netflix and really enjoyed it. Really thought provoking and will definitely watch again. I love movies that make you think. If you are into sci-fi and time travel this is an excellent film. The actors are great the movie setting at the end of the movie I really stopped and thought for a while. I never heard of this movie but found this on Netflix. I wish more movies were made this way straight to the point. A movie that makes you think. This is a movie that will have me thinking for a while.I will definitely share and let more people know about this hidden Jem. Too many movies are just remakes no new ideas this was refreshing.
