Reviews: Project Almanac (2015)

project_almanacReviews for this film from our members:

  • José Arce @ LaButaca.net [Spanish]
    • Excerpt: Una entretenida propuesta de viajes en el tiempo que parece que podría ofrecer más de lo que en realidad consigue. Un caramelo para el rápido disfrute teenager, tan volátil o más que el bolsillo de un Michael Bay que ejerce aquí labores de producción.
  • Kevin Carr @ 7M Pictures
    • Excerpt: It’s dumb. So dumb, in fact, that it makes the science behind “Sharknado” seem sound.
  • M. Enois Duarte @ High-Def Digest.com
    • Excerpt: Though not very original or particularly profound considering its subject matter, ‘Project Almanac’ is a smart, stimulating, and spirited sci-fi thriller that treats the theme of time-travel with some level of seriousness.
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: Project Almanac insists that you lower your expectations. No, you should lower them further than that.
  • Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
    • Excerpt: Frenetic and formulaic, ‘Back to the Future’ it isn’t.
  • MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: There are things in which horny teenaged boys were not meant to meddle. Like we needed the warning.
  • Ben Kendrick @ Screen Rant
    • Excerpt: Even though Project Almanac does not reinvent the found footage format, the movie still manages to tell a gripping (and stylish) time travel story.
  • Brent McKnight @ The Last Thing I See
    • Excerpt: Far from perfect, ‘Project Almanac’ has enough heart and energy that it is a decently fun ride.
  • Frank Ochieng @ SF Crowsnest
    • Excerpt: Relentlessly sketchy and as exhilarating as a PBS-televised high school science project during summer vacation, Project Almanac fails to bounce sufficiently with its erratic presentation of cockeyed camerawork and crew of stock character whiz kids along for the surreal joyride.
  • Stefan Pape @ HeyUGuys
  • [New – 1/7/16] | João Pinto @ Portal Cinema [Portuguese]
  • Jerry Roberts @ Armchair Cinema
    • Excerpt: Here in the post-Holiday January/February doldrums of weak action movies and unfunny comedies comes a fun little science fiction movie that lays out a clever scenario and then follows through on rational terms. It’s the kind of movie that sneaks up on you, just when you think you know how it will go, it takes a right turn and becomes something else.
  • Diego Salgado @ Guía del Ocio [Spanish]
  • Amir Siregar @ Flick Magazine [Indonesian]
  • Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
    • Excerpt: Visually hysterical, narratively nonsensical time-travel cheapie.
