Trivia

In the scene where the characters are watching an airline crash on their laptop, the footage is actually of a real B-52 crash accident that killed four Air Force officers in 1994. Relatives of the officers complained about the crash appearing in the film, and producer Michael Bay apologized and had the scene removed. See more »

An insult to movie goers intelligence
31 January 2015 | by (Los Angeles) – 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
