They arrive at the planned time only to find the base on the verge of collapse. What could have happened in the 24 hours?Written by

11 AM is a very well constructed movie, with an intriguing story line that draws you in very quickly and the cast and production crew were more than up to the task of executing this script to perfection. I watched this movie on the tiny screen of a KLM airline on my way to Amsterdam from Dubai, surrounded by crying and kicking kids and a large snoring man, but I was blind to my surrounding for an hour and a half.
The movie tells the tale of a research team in an underwater Russian nuclear fusion reactor trying to create a black hole with which to travel in time. After 3 years and one small success the project is set to be scrapped, but the lead researcher schedules one final test run to travel 24 hours in to the future. When he arrives in the future with his (rather cute) assistant, they see the lab is on fire and the crew is no where in sight. While they scurry to collect evidence of their time travel and return to the past someone tries to kill one of them and the assistant is left behind (or is she?). Back in the present the story follows a series of seeming mysteries such as why was the lab on fire? what happens in the next 24 hours? Why is the CCTV footage corrupted? The crew have 24 hours to figure out what happened and stop it.
If you're read or seen scifi on time travel you will guess what happens next. Despite having guessed the biggest "twist" in the tale, I enjoyed the movie because of its sharp acting, noir style atmosphere and enthralling story line. This movie follows well in the foot steps of Oldboy (ok maybe not THAT good), I saw the devil and Memories of murder and should have had more exposure in the west.
