lacking tension

Set in the near future, Ryan Reeve (Noel Clarke) wakes up to find himself trapped with a boy. They escape to be pursued by Harkin Langham (Ian Somerhalder). A glitch in Ryan sends him into a new scenario over and over again. Eventually, he meets Dr. Langham (Brian Cox) and femme fatale Dana (Alexis Knapp).

This is a sci-fi groundhog day. There is an explanation but I don't care. The situations are meaningless and therefore lacks any tension. There are some fun little fight action scenes but they are not special enough to be truly interesting. This tries to be Black Mirror but it's only a cracked mirror at best.

Dick-light

A comic book fantasy SF film that has derived its ideas almost whole(sale) from Philip K Dick.Complete with backwards plot and Russian bad-skis plus futuristic techno and brothels and a phoned-in performance from Brian Cox.Did I mention the constant ,repetitive fight scenes? So many and so exactly the same.Nobody gets hurt and bullets almost never hit the targets.It looked like a film school effort at best.

What did I just watch?

THE ANOMALY is an extremely confusing low budget British science fiction film directed by and starring Noel Clarke. I like the man myself, I love some of his work, but when it comes to genre films he does seem to make some rubbish and this film's a good example of that. It comes across as a poorly-written rip-off of the Tom Cruise movie EDGE OF TOMORROW or perhaps SOURCE CODE and even after finishing watching it I still wasn't quite sure of what I'd watched.

Clarke plays a soldier whose life is lived in nine minute intervals before it all goes hazy. During each nine minute segment he gradually learns that he's part of a sinister conspiracy aimed at world domination led by a sinister research institute. Clarke must battle against the bad guys and try to beat them at their own game in the time he has left.

This nonsense is merely a background for the film's main focus which is the fight scenes. It feels like Clarke watched a whole bunch of DVDs starring the likes of Donnie Yen, Tony Jaa, and Jet Li, and thought "I'll have some of that". Sadly, these fights are repetitive and include some very poor choreography and stylistic effects, such as the super-slow motion which is utilised at possibly the worst times. Clarke is no martial artist, merely a street brawler, and there's no grace in these fights at all. He throws in some nudity and an old-timer role for Brian Cox, but the end result is still a mess whichever way you look at it.
