Did You Know?


Steve's dog Hawking, named after a famous physicist, appears to be the same breed of dog as Doc Brown's dog Einstein in Back to the Future, also named after a famous physicist. Both dogs are used to test time-travel methods in their respective movies. See more »

Steve: You know the difference between your life and mine? Do you wanna know what the difference really is?
Dennis: What?
Steve: Random events, chance, and luck. Now, some people might think it's God, or the universe, or what the fuck ever, but that's what it is.

it's American dumbed down
23 January 2021 | by hilarybreeze-59118See all my reviews

It was good then it wasn't; then it was good and then..., classic problem for american sci fi, DRAMA! it lost its focus; could have been an amazing time travel movie but the writing/direction kept creeping back to married life and emotional family crap! it would have been better to omit the whole family and add a "missing" girlfriend. I find too many USA sci fi are dumbed down, over explained, convenient, meaningless messages of our future crap and this movie is a prime example of that! The acting is great and Anthony could have held the movie alone if written for one lead instead of 2. Doran accent kept slipping back, why can't he have his native tongue for this or any movie? I recommend this sci fi for its unique adventure but I limit myself from saying it was good, because it could have been amazing.
