This movie was ok. First off I want to tell you all that you can follow me on Twitter @Mobilemovieman so please get on that so I can beef up my stats get hook some advertisers. Now the Mobile Movie Man is a sucker for time travel movies, but you can never do them perfectly. There are always holes but it’s time travel for god sake so suspend your beliefs for an hour and 45 minutes.
I thought the story had a lot of potential and could have been really good but the story is taken from the perspective of high school kids, and they go back in time to do what’s important to them. I personally would have done different things if given the opportunity but it is what it is. I’m sure you can all relate to going back in time to high school to a point in time where you wish you did something differently. I know I sure could. The love story angle is very sloppy. You could have done so much but instead you go back and make a chick like you??? That’s so weak, but like I said earlier we are dealing with kids. You show me any smoking hot chick and I’ll show you a guy that’s tired of banging her. Chalk that away as free advice kids.
What was beyond annoying for me was the hand held perspective from the camera. That style is so outdated and outside of the Blair Witch Project, it never works. Over all I like the idea of teens messing with time travel but not really like this. That being said the movie is ok and worth checking out because believe me you can do way worse than this. In conclusion let me leave you with two things….please drop me some movie recommendations and @Mobilemovieman on Twitter – god bless you all kids!
