Goofs

When the grandfather is explaining to the son what he thinks happened to the boy's father, the grandfather makes a comment to the effect that he doesn't understand it all because he's not 'a specialist in quantum mechanics'. This movie deals with time travel and relativity, not quantum mechanics. Relativity deals with the large scale and quantum mechanics deals with the small scale. The reconciliation of the two has been the holy grail of physics, 'Unified Field Theory'. To object that one doesn't understand time travel because one is not a quantum mechanic is nonsensical. No physics professor would make that mistake. See more »

Decent sci-fi drama
28 June 2015 | by chris-j-stantonSee all my reviews

Erol (Haley Joel Osment) and his grandfather (Victor Garber) work together using quantum physics to develop the ability to travel back in time, with the aim of repairing a family shattered by the disappearance 12 years earlier of Erol's father (Rufus Sewell).

This is a movie about relationships and the possible selfish impacts of time travel upon them. For example, if Erol travels back in time to prevent his father's disappearance, how can he guarantee his fiancée (Susanna Fournier) that they will still be together in the new version of the present day?

This is not an action movie. There are no special effects. It is essentially a mystery drama with time travel acting as the primary plot device.

I enjoyed the movie. Its definitely not perfect. A little slow in places.

I read several reviewers complain about the casting of Haley Joel Osment. I thought he was fine, though given his physical appearance it is hard to imagine him being the son of Rufus Sewell and Gillian Anderson and the grandson of Victor Garber. However, if you can suspend your disbelief and believe that a couple of men writing mathematical equations on a chalk board can make time travel possible, then anything is possible.
