The I Inside (2004)

“I’m actually a pediatric doctor by training, so any bad news I have to give usually involves as lollipop. Would you like one? It’s grape.” – Doctor Newman

Number of Times Seen – Twice (24 Jan 2006 and 15 Mar 2021)

Brief Synopsis – A man wakes up in a hospital with no memory of the previous two years and then finds himself  moving back and forth between the present and the past.

My Take on it – Great premise that fails to work on any level.

The story isn’t able to stay comprehensible at all here and that makes it even more difficult to try and make sense of this mess.

The way that the story jumps backs and forth between time periods tries to help put a puzzle together for both the viewer and the main character but in the end just confuses the story even more as things move along.

Ryan Phillipe is a grat actor, but he isn’t given enough to work with here that would help make the story more engaging and understandable to try and figure out what is truly happening along the way.

The supporting cast includes Sarah Polly, Robert Sean Leonard, Stephen Rhea, Stephen Lang and Peter Egan.

The film gives us a great mystery yet fails to make it something more enjoyable to try and discover what is really going on.

This is all quite a shame because there is so much more potential with this unique kind of story which unfortunately stays frustrating due to the way it’s presented.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Christian Slater (as Peter), Stephen Dorff (as Simon Cable), and Jennifer Love Hewitt (as Anna Cable) were originally set to star. (From IMDB)

Rating – Razzie Worthy (3/10)
