How he moves back to the correct date to save the world and his wife forms the rest of the story.

Star Performance

Ryan Reynolds fits perfectly in the role. His expressions are flawless, and his body language is perfect. Zoe Saldana did her best. The rest of the cast had done what was required.


The director has given an exciting story with a racy screenplay with time travel as its central plot. The lead characters are designed well, and the stars are appropriately placed. The science fiction film also has family elements to satisfy the family audience, including mother sentiment and teenage and middle-age issues. They are dealt with neatly. Besides these, the film has a lot of commercial elements needed for the genre. The VFX and editing are neat. The movie is technically fine with all the essential things.

What’s There?

  • Shawn Levy’s writing and execution are top-notch
  • The performances of the stars are excellent

What’s Not There?

  • Nothing big as a mistake


For the audience, who love to watch sci-fi thriller flicks, this film will be a great treat.
