A man accidentally gets into a time machine and travels back in time nearly an hour. Finding himself will be the first of a series of disasters of unforeseeable consequences.
Timecrimes brings to the table the well-worn genre of the time travel enigma in such an engaging, refreshing and minimalistic fashion that I was riveted throughout the experience. The plot is woven with great intricacy and Nacho Vigalondo does a great job in putting together the pieces of the puzzle in such a manner that the level of intrigue never diminishes instead it is always on rise and is left on a high in the end. The film does itself some great good by not explaining things too much as to leave the audiences with nothing to chew on. The relatively open ending and the confusion that the lead character has with the concept makes the film more accessible…
Near perfect. One of the best time-travel films I've seen, in part because of the juxtaposition of its intricate script & the simplicity of its setting. You would never guess that traveling only mere hours back in time would serve for such a compelling narrative, but "Timecrimes" pulls it off with brilliant pacing and a plot woven with intelligent twists, not ones that pander to its audience or insult their intelligence. Karra Elejalde [Hector] delivers a tremendously compelling lead performance[s], and is anchored by a keen supporting role from the film's director Nacho Vigalondo as a scientist in the wrong place at the wrong time[s]. For my money, I have trouble deciding which low-budget time-travel feature is better, "Timecrimes" or "Primer". And that is high praise in and of itself.
Wow, now this is how you make a time travel film with a low budget! Timecrimes is a really creative sci-fi, with lots of great thrills, comedic moments and little twists. This is a true mind bender and while the logic of the story is pretty straightforward, the film handles time travel in a very gripping way. There is only one real complaint I have with it, which didn't really take me out of the film though. It's about the big temporal paradox that exists, but doesn't get explained so you just have to go with it. I find it hard to talk more about the film without spoiling it, so I'll just leave it that. Timecrimes is a very interesting mix of genres, being constantly entertaining and thoughtful, but ultimately tragic. It's one of a kind!
Esta película me gusta por dos cosas:
1. El engranaje de paradojas temporales dentro de paradojas temporales es el más preciso que recuerdo.
2. Después del cine pillé con la que hoy es mi novia.
I put off my REC 3 review, because I just watched this again and it gets better every time. It certainly requires multiple viewings, but it is so worth it. No other movie combines elements of comedy with creepiness, and some of the most interesting and head scratching Twilight Zone style sci fi. I have so much fun watching this movie, I have a giant grin on my face pretty much the entire time.
Hector is an average guy. He is just moving into a new place with his wife in the country, when he sees something that piques his interest. While they are setting their new place up, he spots a naked woman in the woods using his binoculars.…
This held up really well on the second watch. Very smart, funny and fun. I highly recommend this gem.
Very weird and confusing plotline that sticks to the standard time-travel film tropes. I really didn't get much out of it.
Excellent little time travel tale that keeps you guessing till the end.
not what I expected at all. You kind of have to not think about it too much but it's very captivating and there are so many twists. quite brilliant
My heart was in my throat for a fair part of this competent thriller, and my stomach was twisted in a knot for most of it. It's an enjoyable, well-shot, logic-defying creeper that explores something Einstein famously identified: the infiniteness of human stupidity.
Great idea, bad acting.
Sehr gute Idee.
Gabs das nicht schon mal?

Keine Ahnung, lass uns einfach warten, bis sie sich selbst
Well, it's okay. I guessed what was going on almost straight away, which kind of spoiled it for me. After that, it was like watching a one-trick pony.
Interesting take on time travel though. Worth a watch.
This turned out to be one of the best time-travel movies I've seen. I love the over all complexity of it and it's even better because of how it ended.
I'm impressed with the amount of thought that went into to this. It starts off a bit slow but once it got going I found myself hooked. There is so little to go on and with each revolution it becomes more addicting.
Definitely glad I decided to watch this one.
Despite the cover, it's not a horror movie! I can say no more.
