BZZZT, nope, try again
15 August 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

(That's a message to the writers.)

It's not blowing anything to say this is basically an attempt at a dark version of the same concept from Ground Hog Day. That's all contained in the synopsis and the pre-release blerb.

Or, if you want some serious physics: its a portrayal of the effects of Closed Timelike Curves - an Einsteinian concept.

But let's face it, it's a simple, childhood daydream, and therefore an archetypal idea: what if the same day repeated ad-infinitum?

I used to dismiss Ground Hog Day as a slightly better than average Hollywood comedy, though my love for Bill Murray has grown and grown over the years (The Life Aquatic is now a film I proudly own).

But the more I have gone back and looked at Ground Hog Day, the more it has improved. It really is quite a good, philosophical treatment of the conundrum the protagonist faces, and the way he deals with it is believable. And it manages to be inspiring, and cunningly the writers have left the ending open: you can interpret it in some kind of religious/spiritual ooga-booga way, or you can take it that it's just the result of the protagonist's careful planning - he had time to think the whole thing right through, after all.

And this brings us to the issue with Repeaters. Writing.

It starts strong and involves the audience. And the 'problems' are introduced rather nicely ...

Then it collapses.

Not completely, but it takes a fairly bad hit and kind of limps on after:

We depart on the loop train with the feeling we are bound for Thrilling Dark Cleverness. Instead, we find ourselves passing endlessly through Mediocrity, Writing Needs Work, and Lost Our Whiteboard, again and again.

Several things irritated me - characters being pussies when they should have charged into the fray (and would have, if they'd had all the time in the world to map out the consequences; there are a LOT of things I would have added, or treated differently) - lack of intellectual support (plot could have been quite ingenious, but ended up not: this is a puzzle-trap after all) - and a really stupid plot-hole, introduced by the writers finally trying to be CLEVER (and instead delivering messed up, gluggy short-hand that garbles the message), that has been the subject of great debate on the IMDb forums.

But, having said all that, what about enjoyment? Would I recommend you rent this?

Hell yes. Take it for a spin.

Or a loop.
