painful to watch
20 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

The title and premise of this movie, as well as its more than reasonable budget of 12 million dollars, might give you the idea that this is a movie that was reasonably acceptable. However, MTV is involved, so they might as well have taken the 12 million and made a big money bonfire, because the world is now slightly worse off for the existence of this film.

I tried watching it once and failed. The second time, I had to skip past the boring "getting the time machine to work" bits (the first 45 minutes of the film). I made it to the end but only just.

There's so many things wrong with this movie. I'm not sure where to start but let's try to rank them in order.

1) cinematography) So, I haven't seen camera-work worse than this since I watched (or tried to watch) that bonkers scientology movie with Travolta in it. This movie looks like it was filmed by the Japanese cameraman in Gremlins 2 (remember him?). Found footage style is entirely redundant in this movie. It adds nothing except nausea.

2) Science) the science in this movie is nothing more than a plot device to justify the main story arc of the film which is essentially "what would a bunch of horrid teenage Americans do if they could do whatever they wanted." And boy it shows, because they didn't bother to do any technical research whatsoever and presumed that the MTV target audience would be too dumb to realise or too dumb to care. Lazy.

3) Characters) do they live? do they die? who gives a damn. Its just bratty American teenagers indulging their own desires and selfish fantasies. That's almost all the do throughout the entire film. Yawn. This movie has been made 10 trillion times already.

4) Its been done before. This is like the 1,000th time travel movie now, and of all the time travel movies I've seen, this one is the worst.

I won't spoil the ending, because, the movie is so shallow and content-less you won't care about it by the time it comes around.
