During the 80's there were good films and there were bad. The bad were terrible. This movie is like locking someone in a room, getting them to watch these terrible movies over and over again and then make them write a script.
The plot themes don't hold together nor do they tie together. The filming is a little worse than a bad 'made for TV' movie. Cliché after cliché after cliché from the 80's - which is why the acting is so bad...
If there's an attempt at lighting? It didn't show. The locations the 'skipping scenes' are shot in have no baring on the plot.
It feels like the sci fi 'multi dimension' and 'quantum physics' is an interpretation which fits snugly into a bad 80's movie - i.e. it makes no sense and has no grounding in reality. It feels more like the writer doesn't really understand what these two physics concepts actually are. We are given no reason why they are involved, stay involved or disappear.
But... when you see 'the event' scene it is touching and the sound quality is good. The film should be marketed as "Knight Rider' and "The A Team" do loss avoidance.
This movie is trying to have a big emotional hit at the end but, because you never emotionally get involved with the characters it simply fails.
