Brief Synopsis – Years after a scientist goes missing, his family tries to find out what happened to him.
My Take on it – I liked the premise of this movie a lot because of the time travel, science and sci-fi aspects, but unfortunately it fell very short of my expectations.
The acting seemed stale, the plot was too simplistic but they tried using fancy scientific words to make is seem more sophisticated.
I wss both surprised and happy to see Haley Joel Osmont back on the screen as the lead character in a movie, but knowing who the actor was made me hope to see his character blurt out ‘I see dead people’, but that didnt happen. He has gone from being an oscar nominated actor to a very forgettable one.
The time travel aspect was used more for a theoretical discussion instead of using it outright to help the plot along. It felt more like a way to keep us in front of the screen with hopes of something better which doesn’t come.
Instead of feeling like a movie released on the screen, this movie just felt like a poorly made very average made for tv movie that is ok to see once and then completely forget about.
Bottom Line – Interesting idea, but very poorly executed. Nice to see Osmont once again on screen, but I kept expecting him to say ‘I see dead people’. Movie felt like your average cheap made for tv movie instead of a theatrical release.
Rating – BAFTA Worthy
