7 September 2014 | by (Sydney) – See all my reviews

Well, if you like the intellectual science fiction genre, you will like this one.

In the same mold as Gattaca, the Island, Looper, and Minority Report, where science is misused for a cause, whether collectively by government or private organizations, or, as in this film, by rogue individuals working within such organizations.

This one involves time travel, and the innumerable paradoxes and bizarre outcomes when 'time agents' start over-stepping their brief, to stop crimes before they happen (shades of Minority Report, except here they travel back in time to stop them before they happen).

It's a complicated story that starts out as a tragic tale in a bar, but soon morphs into a time travel hunt for a rogue terrorist and other subplots including a kidnapping, at least one romance, revenge, time devices that malfunction, and misplaced life sympathy. You need to watch the ending closely, I didn't get it the first time, and as with most time travel movies, you could probably pick a few holes in the plot which don't entirely make sense. But that doesn't make it less interesting.

The key line is one in which a rogue time agent talks about 'a snake forever eating its own tail', which is how the time travel story progressively unfolds.
