Customer Review

on 20 April 2014
Although quite a lot of positive reviews for this I am almost embarrassed to say that I could not connect with this story. I have only seen the Director's cut but the ending was perverse and the plot leading up to it, hardly an improvement. The storyline revolves around the premise that the protagonist, Evan, can flip back to the past when he relives his memories of something. After allowing for that, the storyline jumps from one breathtakingly unlikely event to another, and unfortunately almost all the other characters are implausible. Evan's father is a psychopath in a mental institution who attacks him and is killed in front of him; the boy next door, Tommy is also a psychopath and extremely violent although Evan is repeatedly caught off guard when Tommy attacks him, Kayleigh seems to have no instinct for self-preservation but survives anyway, Tommy and Kayleigh's father has a sideline in child pornography (this part was a little obviously gratuitous) and so on.
The acting is good in some scenes and Evan's character feels rounded and deserving of our interest. Only 2 stars instead of 3 because this film provoked two absolutely awful sequels which this sinful world we live in definitely did not do anything to deserve.
