The Press Reviews

  • ...a lo-fi character-driven crime drama with just a hint of science fiction... Full Review

  • Having lit the narrative fuse, the helmers don't always manage to keep it burning, and the intended emotional payoff arrives more as tacked-on explanation than revelatory sock to the solar plexus. Full Review

  • In the hands of more playful creators, this adolescent fantasy could have been fun. Full Review

  • It's to the credit of the Bakers, screenwriter Daniel Casey, and the solid cast that this character-based core does hold the movie together, mostly sidestepping pat sentimentality and too-easy narrative solutions. Full Review

  • Given the film's title, and that the filmmakers are themselves twins, you would expect the brother relationship at the heart of the movie to be something more than it is. Full Review

  • All the genre elements play like an afterthought, and that's frustrating because the rest of the movie isn't quite spry enough to stay interesting without action, adventure, or at least little more weirdness. Full Review
