Timecrimes

2008 | 88 min. minutes | Rated R

Héctor (Karra Elejalde), the lead character in the Spanish thriller Timecrimes, has clearly never seen Back to the Future, or The Terminator, or even Timecop: The moron simply doesn't understand that when you go into the past, whatever you do is gonna affect the future. So when Héctor stumbles into a mysterious facility, and shortly thereafter finds himself an hour and a half in his past, the dumbass immediately starts messing everything up--at which point our fumbling antihero has to start taking increasingly drastic and brutal action to correct things. With a tone somewhere between TV's Lost and 2004's smart indie sci-fi flick Primer, Timecrimes isn't nearly as original or gripping as it thinks it is--and with each supposedly surprising plot twist, writer/director Nacho Vigalondo acts like the audience is supposed to be shocked by lame genre gimmicks. It's tiresome.
