Review

After beginning as a traditional and quite interesting buddy cop movie, In the Shadow of the Moon ventures into Terminatoresque territory and becomes a thought-experiment revolving around time-travel and causation. Director Jim Mickle (Cold in July) shows that he can handle semi-ludicruous material and almost turn it into a good movie. He is helped by a solid, dedicated performance by lead actor Boyd Holbrook, his second starring role.
