Robert De Niro,
Special Agent Sally Biggs has a secret. She can rewind time--a few seconds--whenever she wants. It's enough to make her a celebrity at the FBI and control almost everything in her life. But deep down, she's afraid of the pain that comes from the things no one can control. Her worst fears are realized when her scientist husband disappears mysteriously. Paranormal apparitions begin to surround her. Strangers with terrifying technologies know her secret, and want her dead. Her only clue is her husband's ghost--who she follows onto a battlefield she never knew existed. She must discover the awesome truth that ties all the mysteries together, before the fabric of her being--and the ones she loves most--fade out of reality. Written by
This somewhat cerebral film contains an intriguing and sweeping story done adequately well on a low, indie budget. The plot raises many questions which leads one to look forward from this prequel to future films which more fully spell out the whole 95er universe. Sally's progression from a selfish, controlling person to a more insightful, likable one is good character development. The interweaving of the Dickens Christmas Carol story themes with those of the movie plot is brilliant. By the way, did anyone notice that the chess scene game duplicates a famous chess game from real life? Several little touches like this add to the richness of the fabric of this jewel of a film.
