Starts strong with a promising setup (and nifty prosthetic effect), but didn't pay off for me ... I wasn't really clear exactly what was going on, or who the characters were, and by the time the guys with guns showed up, I was out of the film.

Good intro and great makeup job! But I found it hard to understand the storyline sorry..

I've got to agree with fallback. This film started very strongly but lost its way and became a little confusing. Great makeup though.

This film was a bit of a mixed bag. It started with an intriguing premise which ultimately wasn't delivered on. The narrative was confusing and the relationships between characters were unclear. The "rules" of the world needed to be stronger.

Nice make-up/prosthetic at the start :)

I thought this was a great techno thriller with two people flipping coins to see who gets to go in the time machine which malfunctions and kills the girl that won. The guy runs outside to yell for help and we see a girl across the road who suddenly blinks out of existence. We then cut to the future where the guy grabs the girl that was on the street and puts her into the time machine and sends her back to try and stop them from using it.

Felt like shades of deja vu and some others, without being a copy. I really enjoyed the film and thought it was well done. As has been said before the makeup fx were awesome.

Again I think this film only suffered from being in the strongest heat of the AK competition and if it was in another heat would have placed really well. Nice job.

The risks and ramifications of time travel.
Great film with a clear and well thought out aesthetic. I also found the directing effective and nicely subtle. Overall the story was a little convoluted (perhaps a bit ambitious for 48 Hours), would have been nice to have a little more exposition.
