I don’t have a lot to say about this one.  Not very memorable, but it felt like one of the better Twilight Zone episodes stretched to a tightly plotted short film, in a good way.   Not too long, not too short, not too many people.  Made me think of End of Tomorrow (rinse and repeat), Minority Report (prevent the crime before it happens) and Cube (very tight/limited set; find the answer from the limited pieces).  It might have been better with completely unknown actors?

I disliked the marketing imagery, which for some reason focused on selling the romance.  There is basically no romance.  The predominant emotion this film left me with was sadness for the lead and the complete loss of control over his own fate.
