Trivia

In one scene, one of the group is attempting to connect two power cables together in order to make the time travel machine work, but he states that they're not long enough and therefore don't reach. This is a possible nod to Back To The Future where Doc is trying to connect two power cables together but they don't reach because one is snagged on a tree branch. See more »

Goofs

The opening minutes of the movie are shown to be recorded on a mobile phone camera, and records the characters finding and activating their fathers handy-cam, yet in the closing minutes of the film this same scene is shown with the alternate time-line camera, which now has the mobile phone footage of the siblings finding the original camera.

An insult to movie goers intelligence
31 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

Just watched this last night, and I have to say it is one of the worst time travel films I have seen. For starters, the writing is a joke, the whole plot is weak and lacks any logic or intelligence for a movie based on science!! It is not smart and is filled with stupid plot holes that are quite insulting to us movie lovers. A lazy work of writing here.

The acting does not add anything special from a group of teen wanna bes. The shaky camera angle was also boring and distracting to say the least.

It actually started out well and showed potential as it created interest as the characters struggled to create the time machine, but once they succeeded, the film just felt flat and did not have any direction or goal and it lost its intrigue.

Save yourself the time and money and skip this lazy attempt of time travel film making, if anything, it did not learn anything from previous films of the same genre
