Special Agent Sally Biggs has a secret. She can rewind time--a few seconds--whenever she wants. It's enough to make her a celebrity at the FBI and control almost everything in her life. But deep down, she's afraid of the pain that comes from the things no one can control. Her worst fears are realized when her scientist husband disappears mysteriously. Paranormal apparitions begin to surround her. Strangers with terrifying technologies know her secret, and want her dead. Her only clue is her husband's ghost--who she follows onto a battlefield she never knew existed. She must discover the awesome truth that ties all the mysteries together, before the fabric of her being--and the ones she loves most--fade out of reality.Written by
This is an energetic, ambitious and reasonably well-acted yarn about time and space. The main problem is the lack of character development and preamble to a cohesive plot line. The slightly amateurish nature of this film won't necessarily deter you from watching, as it IS quite good overall, but it BEGS for better directing and character embellishment. I watched it twice before I wrote this review. It's one those movies that is both easy and sometimes hard to watch as the acting and continuity keeps changing almost by scene. It works for the most part yet leaves too many questions unanswered simply by being so disjointed as a whole.
I would recommend it to all who appreciate this genre as bare minimum fare. I would also recommend it to film students as to what NOT to do as far as under-developing a story and its characters and leaving too many possible sub-plots unexplained.
Not bad, not great, but an awesome and sincere attempt to create some fine film art. 4.8 overall.
