Goofs

At about 46 minutes in, Kyle and Mike have an argument that gets physical. Mike slams Kyle into the rear passenger side of Kyle's truck behind the back wheel, which apparently creates a huge bash/dent. You can't miss seeing this huge dent when Mike then pulls away with his Chevelle after the fight is over.

Then in the very next scene, Kyle, with Sonia as passenger, pulls his truck into a parking lot and parks. And even though it's dark, that huge dent is OBVIOUSLY not there. See more »

Interesting concept, maybe, but the movie itself? NOT!!!
23 October 2011 | by charles000See all my reviews

Interesting concept, maybe, but the movie itself? NOT!!! This is one of those films where I'm sure it sounded good while the producers and directors were discussing the general concept, but once it came time to actually shoot scenes and compile a film, it just didn't quite come together.

That's what Repeaters is, in my humble opinion.

Maybe as a sci-fi thriller novel, this could have worked, but trying to convey this story into a film experience just comes off as being absurdly confusing, and for the most part, not even a slim chance of visualizing this story as somehow being plausible.

Sorry . . . just didn't quite cut it. If anything, viewing "Repeaters" should not be repeated, anywhere, unless one is hoping to utilize this nonentity of a film as some sort of weird gag / comedy item, but even with that revised attempt to give the film a second chance, it doesn't make it, just comes off being flat and monotonous.

3 stars (and that's being charitable)
