Movie Review: TimeCrimes

timeTimeCrimes

“A man accidentally gets into a time machine and travels back in time nearly an hour. Finding himself will be the first of a series of disasters of unforeseeable consequences.”

Before we even start I have to warn you- this is a Spanish language film and there are English subtitles.

This innovative Science fiction film that centers around the theory of time travel. Hector inadvertently stumbles upon an experimental lab. What happens next is mind-blowing.

This is one of the best time travel films I have ever seen. So many films focus on the fantastic; If you went back in time you would kill Hitler or leave Keanu Reeve letters at the Lake house. Timecrimes is about a poor schmuck who is in the wrong place at the wrong time and just can’t catch a break.

It never answers the question: Which came first the chicken or the egg but you will be running this film over in your head for a long time after.
