The Good: Even though it's been done before, the 1st person camera view for the entire movie is a nice touch. Seeing everything from that one camera really adds to the realness of the film. Story line is interesting, and there are some moments (not a lot) of comedic relief with some of the "time trials" the main characters go through. (The Chemistry class scene is rather funny) It's nice to tag along with the teens to see how they try to make all of their dreams come via time travel. That's probably because most of the things they do, you would do too.
The Bad: Majority of the story line seems like something we've already seen. If you've watched any other time travel movie then you'll obviously predict the golden rule: You shouldn't time travel or else!
The Reason: This movie reminded me of Looper + The ButterFly Effect + Chronicle. It's not a must watch by any means, but for those of you who love a good time travel movie, this one is not bad. If there's nothing in the theaters to watch, I'd say save your money by watching this as a matinee or go when your theater is doing a $5 Tuesday special or something. Otherwise, you can probably wait for this on DVD.
The Rating: 6.5/10
