Quibbles aside, the movie is consistently involving because it invites the viewer to explore the implications of this technological breakthrough alongside the main character.
Writer-director Keir Burrows' rapid-fire dialogue and barrage of images ultimately prove too exhausting, though it's always energetic.
You can practically feel yourself getting smarter while watching Keir Burrows' brainy feature debut.
Anti Matter is a sci-fi thriller that blends Jacob's Ladder and Memento with fascinating concepts.
Anti Matter plays loose with science, but certainly entertains with a good, attractive cast.
Yaiza Figueroa shines in this mind-bending sci-fi thriller, that's worthy enough for fans of the genre. [Full review in Spanish]
Viewers might not be entirely satisfied with the answers in the somewhat ambiguous ending, but Anti Matter deserves kudos for asking the questions.
An intelligent, thought-provoking and suspenseful slice of sci-fi that's richly deserving of your time and space.
Anti Matter feels like an exercise in trying to be clever, rather than a well thought-out tale.
A swift combination of smarts, horror, and action, writer/director Keir Burrows' clever science fiction indie starts like Shane Carruth's award-winning 2004 film "Primer" but becomes its own unique take on the consequences of opening up black holes.
The film does a pretty good job of escalating the suspense until we get to the payoff scenes. Yaiza Figueroa does a fine job as the film's main character, and writer/director Keir Burrows does a nice job maintaining the mystery and suspense.
This is a film that could well earn a cult following. There is little visual flash to the story but it is an accomplished technical mystery.
All in all, this isn't bad for a micro-budget sci-if venture. Imagine if Primer was half as smart but had actual actors, sets, cinematography, and unjargonofied dialogue. Granted, it takes most of the first act to warm up to the amateur acting, but, unlike the aforementioned, beloved, indie time-travel flick, at least the actors attempt pathos past reciting their lines. Phillipa Carson, who brings to mind early Star Trek: TNG Marina Sirtis, plays a chemist who has discovered a method of phasing matter across the room via wormhole, and she gets her boyfriend and the cool goth hacker chick to test it out. With the threat of being beaten to a patent by Microsoft (?), Carson enters the wormhole, and, as you would expect while doing something scientifically dangerous, her life gets flipped-turned-upside-down. It's an interesting premise, and it keeps you guessing for most of the film. Unfortunately, curiosity abates gradually by the end of the second act as the movie falls into predictable tropes and leans hard on the weepy framing device. For a first time director, Keir Burrows shows that he has a lot of potential, opting for quick cuts instead of drawn out film-school masturbation. But his editing does become jarring too early on. As silly as it gets, I'm very glad they made this film. As much as we pine for original ideas, no worries, this one is ahead of the curve. There needs to be more movies like this one, but better.
