Reviews: Predestination (2015)

predestinationReviews for this film from our members:

  • Nicholas Bell @ Ioncinema
    • Excerpt: Perhaps more ambitious than its means, it’s a film that manages to intrigue and engross with a narrative that virtually creates the odor of the musty, yellowed pages of the writing style it’s been borrowed from.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: Those who were floored by “Looper” need to check this out – it’s a far better film, despite a lower budget look and features a breakout performance from Sarah Snook who’s like a cross between Tatiana Maslany and Dane DeHaan in this role.
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: It’s a neat trick.
  • Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
    • Excerpt: After watching Predestination, my brain is trying to come to terms with the conclusion of this wackadoodle film.
  • Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
    • Excerpt: A highbrow entertainment with something on its mind but never forgetting to entertain, “Predestination” is the kind of smart, strange, uncommonly ambitious genre piece that used to not come around until recently.
  • Brent McKnight @ The Last Thing I See
    • Excerpt: Predestination is definitely not the movie you expect to see going in, but is one worth checking out if you’re looking for an interesting, rewarding piece of hard science fiction.
  • Frank Ochieng @ SF Crowsnest
    • Excerpt: Dark, moody and visibly challenging, P’redestination’ gleefully plots and twists its way into a hearty submission of inspired Science Fiction contemplation.
  • Stefan Pape @ HeyUGuys
  • Gregory J. Smalley @ 366 Weird Movies
    • Excerpt: …a solid time travel movie of impeccable lineage, one that is not too difficult to follow despite its complexity. What in another movie might appear to be a plot hole here seems like a rigorous exploration of an alternate understanding of causality.
  • Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
    • Excerpt: A cerebral sci-fi time-travel puzzler that proves consistently engrossing and, for all its contrivance and complication, satisfying.
  • Sarah Ward @ artsHub
  • Ron Wilkinson @ Monsters and Critics
    • Excerpt: Put the time-travel gibberish into the background and the result is a great, gritty Aussie noir flick not to be missed.
