Stuart Conway: Life happens in four dimensions. Subtract time from the equation, and all you're left with is space. No motion, no change. Take away time and you change everything we know, everything we believe, everything we understand. Imagine a stopped clock. There would be no rush hour, no more rushing to get there, because you'd never be late. There would be no birth, death. No more broken hearts. Summer vacations would never end. You could never lose a job, your wife could never leave you. ...

User Reviews

Even with the quirkiness and errors it was interesting
31 March 2006 | by heshootshescoresSee all my reviews

The first 10 minutes had me thinking this was one of the worst movies ever produced. As it went on it became more watchable and evolved into a quirky sort of interesting movie. There were some seemingly pointless scenes and some artsy for artsy sake bits, but the plot itself as well as some of the effects were actually pretty decent.

As for the acting, Sean Astin was as good as Sean Astin gets, take that for what it's worth and the seemingly unknown cast was fair with only a few who were brutal actors.

Overall, this was an interesting free watch, I might have walked away from a theater scratching my head mind you :-)
