Set in the near-future, technology controls nearly all aspects of life. But when Grey, a self-identified technophobe, has his world turned upside down, his only hope for revenge is an experimental computer chip implant called Stem.
A group of students venture into the deep caves of remote Texas to locate a favorite archaeology professor who inexplicably has gone missing while searching for the Fountain of Youth. In the course of their pursuit, the group unwittingly rappels into a break in the space-time continuum, where time passes much slower than on the surface. With no hope for rescue, they descend further into the cave and uncover the most coveted urban legend in history and find themselves in the crossfire for its control.Written by
After reading a couple of reviews and being surprised by some negative ones and by the accusation of the good ones being paid, I decided to post my first one. Nobody is paying me to do this. I just watched the movie and the result is beyond my expectations. I'm giving it a 7, from a realistic point of view. If I take into account the budget, I should give it higher valuation.
My favourite movies are time traveling sci-fi movies and I believe this one is worth watching it. It's new, from all point of views, and is not a story we have already seen. At least not me.
Some dialogues could be better, yes. Increase your budget and hire Tarantino to write them. They are just normal, not ridiculous. And I have seen many movies, much more expensive and advertised than this one, that were absolutely ridiculous and not worth my time. It's not the case now.
Some other reviews talk about flaws... I haven't seen them. At least not important ones. Actually, any time travelling movie has more flaws or paradoxes than this one as here there is no time travelling, just the fact that time slows down at a very specific location. Taking this into account, everything makes sense.
To make a comparison. I recently watched 12 monkeys and I can say that, of course, there is better acting there but the plot is much more predictable from the begining. And I will not dare to criticize the actors from this movie. I have seen much worse acting, even from very well known actors.
