Justifies a month's netflix bill on its own
18 December 2016 | by thekarmicnomadSee all my reviews

This is a sci-fi time travel yarn. Now I am a little wary of these, it's not normally long before characters are bumping into themselves in the lift, or someone sleeps with their gran and now dinosaurs are alive and driving cars.

This is an enclosed scenario caught in a loop. Each iteration opens up a different plot line.

The writing is very smooth and the performances are excellent, as is production.

Now this film has some twists and turns but it is unlikely to blow your mind.

It has a prompt running time, not feeling the need to Labour any of the plot lines.

A slick, well thought out movie that gripped me from the start.
