5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing indie sci-fi, 16 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Time Runners [DVD] (DVD)
I was frankly amazed when I saw this little indie gem. The visuals and production values are decent--but the focus here is on story story story. And what a story! This is one of the most original time travel tales I've ever seen. It has some familiar elements, but the way it deals with time and paradoxes and all that is absolutely original. You can tell that there is much MUCH more to come from this "95ers" sci-fi universe.

And about the budget... the special effects range from traditional models for the time machine which I love (a la Star Wars) to fancy computer graphics. I thought they were very impressive, and well-motivated. The camera work doesn't have all the bells and whistles of a Hollywood film, but being an indie, did the job fine. Some other people who watched couldn't tell the difference between this and a big budget film.

No big stars, but the acting was decent throughout, and kudos to the main actress for pulling off a sensitive role. Also enjoyed the entertaining villain.

It's a bit slow at times, but each of the longer scenes is packed with subtle details about the various mysteries going on.

The writing is very literate, both in the character development and even the science. Well done! Would like to see more from this director. People should donate to this guy! Also very nice to see a native UK actor! No fake accent there and did a solid job as the "time navigator," as well as providing a bit of comic relief!

A bit gushing, is this for real?
