I would go back in time to see this... maybe I already did.
28 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

I would go back in time to watch this...maybe I already did. This film was exactly what I thought it would be, but better. I just want to start with the screenplay. May I just say, the writing was brilliant for a teen film. Keen and witty, Andrew Deutschman and Jason Pagan are absolutely perfect together. I hope to see more screenplays from them in the future. Now, the acting was decent, but I'm not going to criticize it too much because these actors are all pretty new to the silver screen. Although these actors were inexperienced, they had great chemistry and so everything seemed to click. Since this was more of a teen film, it's really easy for you to get lost in its brilliance. It wasn't confusing or anything. I mean the story was easy to follow, but it's just hard to review. Honestly, from a teen's perspective, I loved it, but this isn't just a film for teens necessarily. All of the adults in the audience seemed to like it too. In fact, there were a lot of references and allusions included in the movie which targeted the adult viewers. The only thing wrong was that there were also a lot of references and allusions to current music, movies, and popular culture, so the adult viewers couldn't really connect with the characters as much. Overall, the movie had ingenious writing, stunning special effects, adequate acting, and an amazing structure. As a teen, I give this film 9/10 stars.
