Review

Time travel fun with more than one twist, and with enough zest, intelligence and controversy to keep even the most seasoned viewer interested throughout. Ethan Hawke and Sarah Snook are the duo tasked with keeping the secrets of the film's premise obscure long enough for our brains not to ignite as a result of circular thinking, because as with any time-travel story, you must be prepared for loops and logical contradictions. That being said, The Spierig Brothers, who adapted the screenplay from a Robert Heinlein novella, has a more original story on their hands than we've seen in a long time in this subgenre. And they're not bad at presenting it either.
