A time travel film more entertaining for a younger audience.
8 February 2019 | by movieman6-413-929510See all my reviews

Time Freak is a new romantic Sci-Fi film directed and written by Andrew Bowler, the director of The Descent of Walter McFea.

The film is about the brilliant teenager Stillman (Asa Butterfield). Everything in his life seems perfect to go, until the day he is dumped by his girlfriend Debby (Sophie Turner). Stillman thinks up and finds a time machine to go back in time with his friend Evan (Skyler Gisondo) to discover why Debbie dumped him. In this way he tries to adjust everything to ensure that he stays in a romantic relationship with Debbie.

Andrew Bowler based this new film on his short film of the same name in 2011. This film tells more of a time travel story on a younger level. Young viewers can have more fun with this film and the film is also written in a simple way without the way of time travel being explained to the public in a difficult way.

For older viewers the film may seem a bit too simple and due to the lack of details and explanation about how certain things are possible or happen in the film, it may also seem unclear. The characters in the film also try to solve more problems with time travel, which children or teenagers experience earlier in their lives. Older viewers can keep up with classic time travel films such as Back to the Future.

The effects in the film also look a bit simple and meant for a younger audience. The film attributes that the time machine has to imagine, are somewhat cheap. That is why the big machine is soon replaced by a smartphone app that makes time travel possible.

The entire cast also consists of a young cast. Asa Butterfield and Sophie Turner are doing well in this film, but have done better work in better films in their acting career. Skyler Gisondo knows how to create entertaining scenes with the comic commentary of his character on the actions of the main character.
