absolutely entertaining and clever!
5 September 2014 | by (Gold Coast, Australia) – See all my reviews

Sadly I had to travel to an old and tiny cinema to see this movie as it didn't play in the major cinemas on the Gold Coast...after watching this movie i have absolutely no clue why.

I truly enjoyed every minute of this film, all of the actors did a great job, especially Ethan Hawk. I did see some of the plot lines coming and still got a bit of a surprise in how they delivered those plot lines...if you get a chance and like a sci-fi with brains then go and watch this!!!

I would definitely not compare it to looper (just to add to the end) yes looper and predestination are about time travel, but thats were it ends... :)
