Ethan (Michael Kopelow) and his partner Ceil (Alice Rietveld) are pretty much on the verge of inventing a teleporter, but after a few failed tests (despite analysis identifies them as surefire successes), Ethan decides to try the device on himself when left alone in the laboratory ... and if you think Cronenberg's The Fly now, you're totally right ONLY up to here, because this is where the similarities end: Ethan's teleportation experiment turns out to be a total success ... but it has also transported him half a year into the future, and now his lab belongs to the company he has once ditched, he finds himself on the run from pretty much everybody, he finds out that he is said to have killed both his wife (Devon Ogden) and his sister (Kerry Knuppe) - and apparently, in the time he has been absent from it all he seems to have been pretty busy. Fortunately, Ethan gets hold of Ceil, and the two figure they must have accidently invented a time machine. So now, to straighten everything out again, Ethan decides to go back in time to the point where he has left, to set things right again, but unfortunately, there's an conspiracy going on initiated by his former boss (Frank Simms), and just going back in time once doesn't solve anything - so Ethan goes back more than once, finding out more and more in the process, but also making things more complicated, also by at times standing in his own way. And whatever he does, the outcome remains bloody ...

 

Now of course, the premise of this film isn't entirely original, besides above-mentioned The Fly one probably has seen tons of plot elements of this movie in countless time travel films ... but while the concept might sound overly familiar, the execution is really fresh, approaching the film's topic with the right portion of humour without ever becoming really silly, and the story full of fine plottwists that really fit the narrative and make good use of the time travel theme, even in standard situations like chase scenes. Plus for a change, the time travel aspect of the film seems to have been really thought through for a change, of course not from a scientific but from a logical point of view. And add to that some really well-paced storytelling, actors who fit their characters in all their unlikeliness and give fine performances, and a general all throughout fun feeling, and you've got yourself a pretty good movie!
