Profound Chinese science-fiction movie filled with action and emotions

Reset is an emotional, entertaining and stylish Chinese science-fiction thriller that is much better than its reputation. The movie tells the story of single mother and scientist Xia Tian who is working on wormhole technology to allow people to travel back in time. One day, her son gets kidnapped and Xia Tian is forced to steal the scientific results from her facility within one hour to save his life. The challenge ends in a disaster with her colleagues getting killed, her facility getting exploded and her son getting killed. As last resort, Xia Tian decides to become the first human being to travel back in time to get a second chance to save her child. However, she soon realizes that her personal fate is part of a much more complex conspiracy and that she has to face much more opponents than expected to repair the past.

Reset is a movie that convinces on many levels. First of all, the depiction of the near future seems surprisingly grounded and realistic but also includes vehicles, technologies and buildings that are stunning to discover. Secondly, the plot is compact and has fluid pace which makes for an entertaining viewing experience from start to finish. Thirdly, the special effects are rarely over the top and find the right balance between brutality and elegance. Fourthly, the acting performances are quite good as one cares about the sympathetic main character but also about her trustworthy colleagues and even about the villains who are much more complex than one might initially think.

There are only minor flaws in this film. First of all, the plot is somehwat predictable and could have been a little bit more complex. Secondly, the movie's twist wasn't much convincing and could have been more detailed.

In the end, Reset is a very strong science-fiction movie that is filled with action and emotions from start to finish. The film's camera, light and special effects look greater than many contemporary Hollywood films. Therefore, the movie deserves more acclaim and attention than it gets. Give it a try and you will get excellent entertainment if you like science-fiction films with depth.

Bad acting, ridiculous plot deveopment

Ok, this is not the WORST time travel movie ever made. Time Cop is the gold standard of crappy time travel story. But the set up is just nuts and unnecessarily complex, to the point that it makes no sense why the characters in the movie chose to do things the way they did it. The dialogue is ineptly written and the supporting actors sounded like this was their first time acting outside of their school drama club. The laboratory setup is insanely anti-ergonomic and the security measures for such a major research facility is laughable at best. The main female lead actress Yang Mi also isn't skilled enough to carry the movie. There is little saving grace to it. 2 out of 10 is me being generous because China film industry is still relatively inexperienced. SyFy network can make better TV movie than this.

SJW-free! Woo hoo!

As another reviewer astutely comments, it seems that the majority of what comes out of Hollywood these days is SJW, PC-ridden *garbage*.

This movie is just sci fi, if you think it's well done or poorly done, it doesn't preach any agenda message to the viewer at the same time.

Subtitles are short, large, and easy to read while not distracting from the action on screen. Sci Fi addicts are generally very forgiving, as long as a decent effort is made to entertain...which I find this movie does.

It's not a Matrix, or Looper et al, but it's definitely worth the watch, if you crave sci fi.

I give it an "8" with an included contempt toward Hollywood. A more accurate score on its entertainment merit would be a 6.5

Keep it going, Indie and other countries movie producers in the world! After all, we can never have too much sci fi!
