Timecrimes- September 13th

timecrimes2Timecrimes (2007)
Spanish- Science Fiction
Rated “R”
Runtime- 92 min.
dir. Nacho Vigalondo
 

A strange piece of time travel science fiction from the Iberian peninsula.

Story/Writing: 1.5/2

A man accidentally travels back in time and must alter his present to keep his future. It makes sense as  you go, believe me.

Acting: 1.5/2

Karra Elejalde is believable in the role of the protagonist; he takes matters into his own hands to correct his timeline at any cost. the rest of the small cast fills out the background.

Photography/Set: 1.5/2

The parts in the forest were really fast paced with a lot of good cuts, adding a faster rhythm to otherwise slower scenes. I also thought that the laboratory sets were pretty cool as well.

Sound/FX: 1/2

Low budget fare for the effects gets the movie along, as it puts more value on the premise than the spectacle.

Misc: 1.5/2

I enjoyed this time splitting thriller, and I think most will. In my research, I found that the film was coming due for a Cronenburg redo in English, which I think is completely unnecessary. There is also a planned remake of Trollhunter, one of the first films I watched for this blog, and I plan to warn people away from it as well. Even if these planned translation remakes are successful, why fix something that isn’t broken?

VERDICT: 7/10
