In this Australian production, American actor Ethan Hawke plays the Temporal Agent who must neutralise the one offender that has eluded him through time.
Robert A. Heinlein was one of the genius writers of science fiction and the twin Spierig brothers (writers/ directors/producers) have taken on the challenging task of telling one of his stories visually. Largely the audience for the film could be evenly split between those who love it and those who are frustrated by it.
Some may feel that predicting the outcome is an academic exercise, certainly it’s a film that puts a new spin on the familiar tale of the agent working to prevent a terrorist outrage. What’s different here is the method used: time travel. (MMu)
