This premise has been made into quite a lot of movies, actually. The newest being 'Edge of Tomorrow' with Tom Cruise. 'Groundhog Day' being one of the first and maybe the most well known. (There is also one called 12:01, that I caught on television one time as a kid, I was absolutely fascinated. I had not seen Groundhod Day at the time).
OK, moving along!
Repeaters is pretty much the same premise as Groundhog Day, like I said, but much darker. Which is also probably much more realistic, as people tend to use their extraordinary powers for bad things.
Anyhow I enjoyed this movie a lot, and it is quite a mess these people get themselves in, and it made me sort of uncomfortable. At least I tend to feel a little uncomfortable when people in movies get themselves into more and more of a mess. I like thinking that I may have problems of my own, but at least not _those_ problems.
I would recommend 'Repeaters' if you like that kind of time travel/time loop-kind of movie. I think the score this has one here is a little on the low side.
