Review:

Predestination is an enchanting and mind-bending Australian sci-fi drama and crime thriller from Michael and Peter Spierig, starring Ethan Hawke. We follow a time-traveling Temporal Agent on a final mission to catch the one criminal that has eluded him throughout time.

Ethan Hawke is sure-footed and reliably solid as our Temporal Agent, sporting a lisp and making the jump with a minimalistic, yet sophisticated time warp technology. He's supported by Sarah Snook, who delivers a well-weighted and challenging performance like a young Tilda Swinton.

Predestination is a striking film with a similar edge and quality to Looper, making it the kind of head-scratching time travel movie that demands a second viewing. It's been beautifully shot, delivering a series of different time periods with elegance and style. The visuals are crisp and spellbinding, echoing films like Inception and transporting us to a tense multi-dimensional situation with some pre-crime parallels with Minority Report.

It may not be as gripping as you'd hope and the time jumps do get intricate and rather over-complicated, but the unusual social themes revolving around the characters are fascinating and it's well worth your time, especially if you have an interest in mind-bending sci-fi and time travel.

The bottom line: Elegant
