    "As with all time traveling movies, you have to allow yourself to dive into the fantasy to truly enjoy this one. The time traveling concept is one that isn't explored much and when it is, the movie isn't usually as interesting as this one. To have the phrase haunted by your past come to life is truly an original and entertaining concept and that's what this movie delivers on."

    "This book is another fantastic installment to the Harry Potter franchise, however it does little to satisfy those looking for a time travel movie. It is advisable to look elsewhere to find a good time travel movie."

    "At first, it seemed like just another cookie-cutter action movie with sci-fi time travel elements in it, but as you watch it, it becomes more complex and riveting. It's told well, acted well, and it thought-provoking."

    "As far as sci-fi movies go, this isn't anything special. What it is, is a movie with a story that works and fits well overall. This is also one of Van Damme's best sci-fi movie in my opinion."

    "Not what I was expecting, even though I love Jenifer Garner. I cringed the entire movie after she woken up as her 30-year old self in the future. Not a realistic storyline and the soundtrack is awful. "
