This was entertaining but really makes no sense. The basic premise is nonsensical. There’s usually some sort of logical connection showing how the odd events came to be but not in this movie. I was left wondering what had actually happened but decided it wasn’t worth thinking about.

Equal parts 'Jacob's Ladder' & 'Butterfly Effect', with a lot of class act plot maneuvers & special effects. I'm not usually inclined toward Adrian Brody's movies, either, & this one's pretty magnificent. Very much recommended! CR

A decent psychological thriller that slipped through the cracks. Disturbing and unusual story -- definitely along the lines of "Jacob's Ladder".

This is an excellent weird movie that keeps you engrossed and trying to figure out things. You definitely want your brain on for this one.

This is an easy one. Did you like Jacob's Ladder? Do you wish it had a slightly more positive ending? You will love this movie.

Criminally underrated, The Jacket is an excellent sci-fi thriller. Featuring first class stars (Adrian Brody, Keira Knightley) and co-stars (Jennifer Jason Leigh, Daniel Craig, Kris Kristofferson), the movie was produced by George Clooney and Steven Soderbergh. It misfired in the theater because it was mis-marketed as a horror movie. Instead, it is a twisty time-travel movie with an interesting story line and satisfying payoff. Highly recommended.
