Not a 'bad' time travel movie. (NetFlix)
I liked the Time Ships and the 'Light Sabre'.
Ryan Reynolds action sequences are fair (kinda like how he acted in Deadpool).
His persona mimics Deadpool as well.

All in all decent story, decent action, fair time travel concept, ending left me feeling dry.
I'll watch it again a few more times.
Takes place in 2018, 2020 & 2050.
The technology in the 2018 timeframe seems a bit too advanced and the technology implied for the 2050 devices seems far too advanced.
This fantasy science fiction film is worth seeing, maybe not in theaters but streaming it won't be a waste.
There should NOT be a prequel or sequel made. Leave it as a stand alone film.

Not a bad movie but I think if anything it'll help Walker Scobell, the young actor who played a 12-year-old Ryan Reynolds, with his career as he really had some of the best lines.

It was also a bit surprising seeing Jennifer Garner and Mark Ruffalo in secondary role instead of a main character. Garner was great in the role though and I wouldn't be surprised to see her doing more of these types of dramatic roles.
