The trailer actually makes this seem goofier than it actually is. time loop stories are actually difficult to tell. Groundhog Day and Edge of Tomorrow are gold standards but this does a pretty good job - taking you on the same ride as the protagonists as he learns more and more about what's happening and how he can change the outcome. Another surprisingly enjoyable part of the movie is the dialogue. It's very of aware of either itself or the corny cliches of other action movies and Frank Grillo does a good job of delivering the snark. Get comfy on the couch with a few beers and enjoy watching this one.

Saw Frank Grillo and thought, oh well, another so so movie, but WOW! He did an excellent job in this movie. The movie, albeit with a stupid title, was well done and well entertaining. This is a movie that I could watch again, and I would recommend it.

This movie trailer gives you the impression that you don't need to watch it as you've already seen the good bits. It makes you expect nothing but still look forward to a descent action flick; the good news are that you're wrong, the best is yet to come. The first impression as the movie starts is that the movie has its own pace, and a great one. That's the same director of Smoking Aces, and you can see a lot of his dynamics playing out perfectly on this movie. The big surprise comes with the main character's arch. The story is good enough, but the journey the protagonist has to go through in order to see the next day is a game changer, satisfying, it pays off. The movie is not perfect and that's all right. We can't expect a film to meet everyone's expectations. Those guys did their best and at the end of the day, they achieved it. I'm one of those people who doesn't get impressed easily, I hate CGI and think that most movie makers these days don't have the balls to make characters with unique, even flawed attributes that go against the Hollywood stereotype. It ain't the best CGI I've ever seen but I was too busy having fun to judge how well made it was. I'd never score a movie based on it's budged but instead on how well it all works as a whole within its own limitations. 9/10

Hulu should really do better on promoting this film. It is one of the best thrill rides I have seen in a long time and wouldn't of known about it unless a friend told me! The cast is terrific and the Groundhogs Day sci fi twist makes it a fun roller coaster ride ! It's the Summer movie we have been waiting for years to see !

I going to come clean and say I flat out loved this film. It has a great cast, script, action, direction and of course special effects. Equally important, the choreography in the fight scenes is excellent. I never thought I was being hoodwinked or short changed by careful cutting, rapid shot changes or careful camera placement.

Although it has a pretty good if somewhat simplistic storyline, it has been adapted very imaginatively with what is actually quite a lot of forethought planning and development. I felt a little cheated with the ending but on retrospect, I couldn't really have asked for too much more... maybe they're doing a Boss Level II.

Normally I expect Frank Grillo to be either a second tier good guy, when the likes of some A-lister is unavailable or possibly out of budget, or a first rate bad guy, a role he tends to somewhat excel in. Here he's the star attraction and with Naomi Watts and Mell Gibson bringing up the rear and it's a good combination.

Grillo is sharp, witty, romantic and... well, displays a range as an actor that we rarely see him portray, and he does a great job. As an action actor there are few who can walk in his shoes, both physically and with his on screen presence, let's face it, he gets a lot of work in this area for a good reason, but I wasn't expecting him to be a lead in a role that really demands a lot more of his acting ability, and quite frankly, I'm pleasantly surprised. Not that I'm saying he couldn't act before, just that, well... I've not seen him in many parts where he's had much more to do than be/look hard, and or beat people up.

Gibson is Gibson at this stage of his career, gritty, unhinged and accomplished.

Watts is never truly convincing as a scientist/doctor/researcher. The rather alluring slinky dress that functions as a lab coat or some other type of boffin garb was ill thought out, but she nevertheless manages to deliver a competent performance whilst adding a sultry appeal that doesn't go unmissed... perhaps the dress isn't such a bad idea after all.

The minor cast is for the most part an accomplished line up of add-ins who do a pretty good job in filling in the necessary spaces for villain-hood, goonish ineptitude and thuggery. Some are quite enthralling and I loved the way that a multitude of baddies are employed for skulduggery, even if it is (given the protagonist and his lack of superpowers) somewhat excessive. Whilst Michelle yeo is largely unused, she nevertheless gives the story some credibility.

Anyway, I won't give away any details on the plot but it is a good film with a pretty solid delivery all round. I'm not going to nit-pick on the fine points of the story or temporal mechanics of the notions therein, and even though I do like the fact they didn't try and explain away some aspect of science, I didn't so much like that a fair amount of meat was left off the bones of the science aspect of the film... not that it mattered much since it wasn't really the focal point of the film... well, not really.

Anyway, go see it. Solid 7.5 out of 10 for me but I'll give it an 8 since it was an unexpected pleasure to watch.

This was such a surprise for me, this is a perfect popcorn flick, and was such a breath of fresh air from all the nonsense hollywood has been pumping out lately.

This was a role Frank Grillo was born to play and he needs to play it more.

Great humour, great soundtrack and doesn't outstay it's welcome.

Cannot recommend it enough.
