As a group of friends discover plans for a time machine, they build it and use it to fix their problems and for personal gain. But as their future falls apart with disasters, and they come to realize the irreversible ripple effects caused by their time travels, they must decide to fix this once and for all.
One of David's friends can be heard talking about the sci-fi/action film Timecop (1994). Both "Timecop" and "Project Almanac" involve the year 2004 as well as traveling exactly 10 years into the past. Coincidentally, 2004 is ten years in the future in "Timecop" since it was made in 1994 and in "Project Almanac" 2004 is ten years in the past since 2014 was the year it was filmed. See more »
When David looks at the plane crash footage on his notebook alone in his room, you can see the reflection of the green screen from his notebook's screen in his face. See more »
You know what I would've done if I was smart enough to build a time machine? I would've gone back in time to meet you sooner.

Found footage movies are often pretty predictable and sketchy, but project almanac isn't. Unlike other movies of this genre, the pace is kinda slow, which is appropriate for the story. When you build a time travel machine, it is normal that it takes multiple attempts before it works. Even though sometimes you may wonder why the characters are still filming their journey, it's not disturbing enough to prevent you from focusing on the plot, which is a good thing. There's also a good love story and some funny moments, in addition to a breath taking last act. I'd compare it to the Canadian movie Chronicles.
Overall you'll have a great time watching this movie, even more if you are familiar with this genre.
