Directed by Michael Spierig and Peter Spierig (known for bringing us the vampire film Daybreakers in 2009) comes a new film that contains plenty of mystery, Sci-fi, suspense and consistent question about the film’s plot until the credits roll down the screen.
Without giving too much away, the plot introduces us to a mystery man (played by Ethan Hawke) who has a career as a time-travelling Temporal Agent and tells the story of his final assignment. His mission: To pursue the one criminal that has eluded him throughout time known as “The Fizzle Bomber”.
The film’s casting choices are fantastic and all cast members give an outstanding performance. Ethan Hawke is joined by Australian actress Sarah Snook, who gives what is my opinion her best performance yet. Noah Taylor (another Aussie Actor) also graces us with a few appearances and also carries great strength whenever he appears.
The film’s soundtrack is worthy of highlighting. It’s very basic but it provides such a perfect tone for the film’s mystery and suspense.
Predestination’s script is creative, and to be honest, I haven’t seen any film with such level of creativity in quite some time. This film offers such a change from the common squeals or reboots that seem to be appearing more and more often in cinemas today. If films like these came out more often I would be a happy man. Even when I figured out the film’s final surprise twist it didn’t bother me because the way the film presented it was exciting and I left feeling very satisfied.
