Trivia

The character, Sonny, gives his code name as Ouroboros, which is an ancient symbol of a snake eating its tail. This traditionally represents the infinite cycle of nature's destruction and recreation; life and death. See more »

Goofs

Ren and Hannah discover the ring of petrified grass outside the house and make the statement that the time loop is contained to only inside the perimeter of that ring An aerial shot then shows the ring going around the house, hence the boundary of the time loops. When Sonny calls Torus for extraction, they are outside of the time loop and would be getting hundreds of calls. See more »

Sold 8/10 Amazing Movie! Couldn't Stop Watching!
16 September 2016 | by smilegelSee all my reviews

I always enjoy loop movies and this one definitely delivers! The plot is awesome and all actors as very good good.

When I started watching it I didn't know what to expect and things got more interesting with every minute you watch as it provides more and more information about what is happening and other details.

And it's rare as in some movies you are left right to the end for any and all explanations. In this movie you are being fed little by little and that was glued me in to the screen

I give this a solid 8/10.

Disregard the negative reviews as those people either didn't watch or it's too..complicated for them to figure out....
