A fantastic time loop movie
9 December 2004 | by mhargreavesSee all my reviews

Following the main character through his trials and investigations you really get a feeling of the horror and turmoil the simple every man is going through.

I also came away from this film with the quote "Consciousness is an independent variable".

Of the two 12:01 movies I consider this the more impressive. As other reviewers have mentioned the film focuses on a 59 minute loop, and shows that if you only have one hour to live over and over again then you can't achieve very much.

If you've seen Groundhog day and seriously got into the time loop, wanting to know more about why the main character was stuck then this movie might appeal as you here some science.
