Mind Blown
24 January 2016 | by view_and_reviewSee all my reviews

This movie was a total mind bleep. Allow me to take you through my emotional time line of the movie.

Phase 1--Excited. Electric beginning. Action right away with some good special effects. Immediately drawn in.

Phase 2--A tad bored. Story time. Nice story but not what I came for. I came for a good time travel sci-fi not a tragic life story, however unique.

Phase 3--Layers begin to be peeled back. Start to see what's really going on. Mind starts to melt.

Phase 4--The end. The brain has exploded trying to comprehend it all.

It was a crazy series of events, an insane temporal loop, it was fantastic.
