I remember this movie was delayed at least once before coming out - not usually a good sign. The found footage aspect was probably the hardest part of the film to swallow - but time travel (even when treated as loosely as it is here) is always a fun genre. The movie references the best - Back to the Future, Bill and Ted, Looper, Timecop (okay, maybe "best" is reaching) - but doesn't bring much new to the table. That being said, it has its moments, the actors are decent and the ending a bit unexpected. Plus, Imagine Dragons - overall, shut down your brain and have a bit of fun with this one.

To those people who are sick of found footage movies well your not alone. Year after year you get the same formal of found footage movie genre and that's why I wasn't looking forward to this movie, because Micheal Bay is producing it and the fact that movie didn't really get my interest as I'm into movies that get my interest before seeing it. I was …
