    I had no real idea what I was getting into when I started this flick but I was completely engrossed. Great performances, neat ideas, and good direction really compels this movie forward. My only nit-pick would be I felt like I was a step ahead of the "reveals", I feel like the directors held our hands a bit or maybe I've seen enough time travel movies that it would take a lot to surprise me. Regardless I really enjoyed this flick a lot.

    The only special skill Liam Neeson has in this picture is being awesome. This great, thrilling detective piece is intense from beginning to end. I wasn't sure how I felt initially about the young sidekick but I ended up loving young Detective Daunte Culpepper. Great flick all around.
