      Ali B Its a chill home movie. Simple no frills. Sure it's not mind-blowing. But it's easy. Mindless ig Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/07/24 Full Review Audience Member The boyfriend is a moron. Even after four resets going back in time, betrayed by his girlfriend each time, he still continued to make the same mistake and trust her, wasting the first half-dozen resets. Totally stupid. The bad guys didn’t need more than one reset to not make the exact same mistakes as before, once they were in the loop. Only the moron boyfriend wasted resets, probably in order to stretch the movie beyond 30 minutes. If writers need to rely on making characters do stupid things as a way to fill time, the result is always a stupid movie. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 08/09/23 Full Review Julio A Gostei muito. Super interessante a história se passar em apenas um lugar com variações. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 05/25/23 Full Review Preston P If you liked Edge of Tomorrow, or any other "time loop" movies, you'll appreciate this little gem. Arq is an extremely low budget film that knows how to stay in its lane while still packing a punch. Arq manages to to keep the energy and tension high by not wasting the audience's time. Edge of Tomorrow and Groundhog day spend the first half of the movie simply introducing the timeloop, whereas Arq introduces that element within the first 5 minutes. From there, the film could have been your run of the mill "hero gets smarter every loop and conquers" story, but almost every loop introduces an unexpected plot twist that really keeps the viewer guessing. There are no big action set pieces or special effects. Instead, you get convincing performances from the two leads, and a plot that simply cuts to the chase instead of trying to rival Tenet in its complexity. Ultimately, Arq doesn't do anything too groundbreaking, but it does a whole lot with a little. It's a short journey, at less than an hour and a half, but the pace is such that the film keeps you on the edge of your seat the entire time. If you're into time travel, there's really no reason not to give this quick film a try. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 05/24/23 Full Review Santana d A nice sci-fy thriller. Go for it. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/16/23 Full Review Georgan G 3 & 1/4 stars. Love the concept of time travel and with this flick being about a time loop, I had to see it. There is writing that could have been improved for clarity, but I still enjoyed it. The end of humanity on repeat. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Brad Newsome Sydney Morning Herald It's a small package that delivers a sizeable punch. Oct 4, 2016 Full Review Michael Sicinski Cinema Scope Bearing an unnervingly derivative resemblance to Shane Carruth's Primer, which did much more with considerably less, the debut feature by TV writer Tony Elliott comes off like a low-budget, low-stakes riff on Edge of Tomorrow. Nov 18, 2017 Full Review Molly Horan Refinery29 Watching a bad movie is never an enjoyable experience. But there's something particularly excruciating about watching a bad movie that keeps repeating the same thing every 10 minutes. Jun 26, 2017 Full Review Mikel Zorrilla Espinof Not a great movie, but it is a worthy approach to the exciting cinematic universe of time traveling. [Full review in Spanish] Nov 10, 2016 Full Review Juan Tolentino Cinema Movil A futuristic movie that is entertaining, but not memorable and ends being disappointing. [Full review in Spanish] Sep 23, 2016 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews A disappointingly half-baked sci-fi endeavor... Rated: 1.5/4 Sep 19, 2016 Full Review Read all reviews
