lacking tension
8 September 2017 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Set in the near future, Ryan Reeve (Noel Clarke) wakes up to find himself trapped with a boy. They escape to be pursued by Harkin Langham (Ian Somerhalder). A glitch in Ryan sends him into a new scenario over and over again. Eventually, he meets Dr. Langham (Brian Cox) and femme fatale Dana (Alexis Knapp).

This is a sci-fi groundhog day. There is an explanation but I don't care. The situations are meaningless and therefore lacks any tension. There are some fun little fight action scenes but they are not special enough to be truly interesting. This tries to be Black Mirror but it's only a cracked mirror at best.
