4.0 out of 5 stars An Ambitious Effort on a Low Budget, 10 July 2014
This review is from: The Anomaly [DVD] (DVD)
Set in the future, ex-soldier Ryan (Noel Clarke) awakens in the back of a van with a young boy who is being held captive. Ryan realises he can only stay awake for 9 minutes every few days as he awakens in the middle of various situations such as interrogation and visiting a prostitute (Alexis Knapp). Harkin (Ian Somerhalder) is a mysterious man somehow connected to alternate life Ryan is leading outside his 9 minutes of consciousness.

During his chunks of 9 minutes Ryan has to figure out how to stay awake, what his other life is, and how to save the young boy he met in the van.

This is a British indie sci-fi thriller so don't expect a Hollywood blockbuster budget, nevertheless it was entertaining.

4.0 out of 5 stars I WANT MY LIFE BACK, 20 Oct 2014

This review is from: The Anomaly [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Ryan (Noel Clarke) suffers from PTSD. He has severe memory lapses where he is someone else. He has 10 minute intervals to "reboot." During those 10 minute intervals he tries to save a young boy (Art Parkinson) a prostitute (Alexis Knapp) and the world while keeping time with an Omega watch and trying to figure things out.

This was an interesting sci-fi film as well as an action film as Ryan physically battles his employers and their enemies too. The computer graphics and special effects were excellent for an indie. There is an air of mystery as Ryan and the audience try to figure out what is happening. A must for indie sci-fi fans.

Parental Guidance F-bomb, sex, nudity.
