You watch it, figure out how it works, and then never have to interact with it ever again.

December 11, 2008
Low-budget Spanish thriller about a guy that stumbles hours into the past and winds up trying to correct his last few mistakes can't survive its contrived plot contortions, non-characters, or "well, duh" obviousness.

December 5, 2008
Far too simplistic for something that masquerades as a puzzle, Timecrimes effectively holds your attention right up to the point where you figure the whole thing out. Which, unfortunately for the film, is about half way through.

Timecrimes, the Spanish language thriller that's garnered a lot of buzz and is already in American remake turnaround (Cronenberg to direct?), tells an interesting story in a wholly uninteresting manner.
December 12, 2008
Spanish filmmaker Nacho Vigalondo's low-budget brain-drainer Timecrimes is only half as clever as it thinks and even less entertaining.

Undeniably easy to watch, the film still isn't very fulfilling, the aftertaste left by the over-familiar finale one I just didn't like.

If you like the trickster films of Christopher Nolan (Memento, The Prestige), chances are you'll like Timecrimes.

Hector's insane time-travel journey is an excellent example of high-concept sci-fi.

June 12, 2010
The idyllic but mundane world of the film's opening segues smoothly into a sequence out of a highly intelligent slasher film, before finally settling into its niche as a darkly funny, and at times mildly disturbing, sci-fi thriller.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10

Very cool.

Timecrimes is like a temporal chess game with nudity, voyeurism and violence, which makes it more boring than most chess games but less boring than a lot of movies.

The modest satisfactions of Timecrimes come down to a protagonist divided against himself.

Vigalondo's film wastes little time in foregrounding the act of seeing.

While I enjoyed the film a great deal, I honestly wonder if there'd be this amount of hoopla if the picture, say, starred a yamhead like Val Kilmer and was set in New Jersey.

It's fun, and if you're willing to hang with time travel more than I am, I bet you'll like it even more than I did.

Meticulous plotting, breathless pacing, paradoxes aplenty, and some surprisingly human dilemmas, all make this low-key sci-fi thriller well worth going back over again and again. It is a Primer-like triumph of ideas over budget.
December 6, 2008
A nifty little thriller, entertaining from start to finish, and just weird enough to seem unique.
