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

Watching "Timecrimes" is like stumbling in a pitch-black haunted house. Hitting walls where paths should be is fun, and time-travel tropes of choice versus fate are inventively goosed. Even with five minutes left, it could conclude in any number of ways.

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.

That rarest of rare things: an intelligent time-travel movie that actually holds together on closer examination.

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.

A smart, occasionally thrilling science fiction tale...

A tight little movie where every setup is paid off

As a director, Vigalondo sweeps you up into his tale and keeps you running at what seems like full speed toward the finish line.

Very cool.

The key here is to keep things moving without letting the logical (or illogical) complications weigh down the action, and [director] Vigalondo does this well.

Nacho Vigalondo's bleak time-travel thriller... [chronicles the travails of a] classic film noir schmuck: No matter what he does, sooner or later fate will stick out her foot and trip him up.

His film is satisfying in its clever construction and vivid style.
February 12, 2009
The first feature by a promising young director who doesn't know how to recapture the hare he has let loose.
February 11, 2009
A film that exemplifies the popular artistic notion of inescapable tragic destiny.
February 6, 2009
An enterprising Spanish time-travel thriller, that's light on DeLoreans and lightning bolts, but heavy on fiendish cross-currents of temporal interaction.
February 5, 2009
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.
February 5, 2009
Fiendishly convoluted and stylishly crafted, Time Crime is a low-budget sci-fi thriller from Spain that ably demonstrates the value of a neat idea, cleverly executed.
