While doing research , a group of young geniuses accidentally stumble upon a secret terrorist plot to create a time machine to go back in time and change history.
Don't let either title or description fool you though! It's not sci-fi, but more so a Christian movie about the ultimate Jihad. Going back in time to kill Jesus.
Well actually maybe that does class as sci-fi? Depending on what you believe in. Jesus did live though. No sci-fi there. But time travel. Yeah. And certain other elements and happenings that I shall nae spoil...
The content's not all that sci-fi-like though. It feels more historical, both in past and present, though with a solid cast and a fair share of twists/action.
Normally I'd avoid a movie like this, self-righteous and preachy as these movies tend to feel for one who doesn't believe but... when they mix in a time machine things usually get a lot more exciting, and this was no exception!
It's good. It ends good. It does feel a little preachy but... it goes with the theme after all. And the time. And they manage to portray Jesus in particular as a pretty cool dude.
I feel a little tricked by cover and promo but... not disappointed.
Atheists get out of your comfort zone. This one's worth a watch after all.
rated 3/5: not bad
