When Time Expires Reviews
But no, the writer has to keep defying logic every time he tries to explain something. He can't seem to keep straight who the "League" and the "Ministry" are, or why people from either might want to stop the mission. It would have been better to have a distinctly "other" villain to keep things clear.
There's a lot of overwrought nonsense about watches that beep to warn you when you are changing the timeline, as if a warning after you've done something wrong somehow prevents you from causing the damage you would have done by doing it. Or why it matters who puts change in the fateful parking meter, or which change, or precisely when. In the end, it's another character who puts money in the meter, well after the cop shows up to write a ticket, and he just waves it off with a literal "Whatever!" Which just about sums up the story, so i guess it's appropriate in a sense.
After that wet firecracker of a climax, instead of the critical act preserving Earth's future, for no apparent reason it rewrites the past. Suddenly the love interest's life of bad luck and disappointment is set right, and our hero appears to woo her anew. Why? How? "Whatever!" Tangled, twisted time manipulation plots are tricky for the best screenwriters--hacks should just KISS.
