For his final assignment, a top temporal agent must pursue the one criminal that has eluded him throughout time. The chase turns into a unique, surprising and mind-bending exploration of love, fate, identity and time travel taboos.
Malcolm Rivers has been convicted as the perpetrator of several murders and is sentenced to death. An eleventh hour defense by his lawyers and psychiatrist that Malcolm is insane based on new evidence has resulted in them meeting with the prosecutors and the judge to discuss if the verdict should be overturned. Meanwhile, on a dark night during a torrential rainstorm in the Nevada desert, a series of chain reaction events results in several people needing to stay at an out of the way motel managed by Larry.

stupendous spine-chilling mystery with brilliant plot and twists
Seeing the plot and reviews at IMDb,i decided to see this movie . It is one of the best mystery movies which keeps you at the edge of your seat until the last moment when you are baffled . If you are a suspense movie lover , you cannot miss this one . It is one of the best well written plot and the characters though not that famous (apart from John Cusack) still they glue well with this plot. ------ "When I was going up the stairs ,
I met a man who was not there,
He was not there again today,
I wish I wish he would go away "-----
The film begins with this line and as the film gets over you can understand its intrinsic meaning.The performances are great and the direction and screenplay are above normal standards.Many events are first shown and then why they occurred are shown.I liked scream series , jack the ripper(Michael Claine TV film),sixth sense and some others but this one is in that league also.You will surely earn your DVD price seeing this movie.It was not that big a hit and i wonder why , may be because of absence of big stars ,whatsoever i am quite a big fan of this movie.
