Think Shane Black does Ground­hog Dog. This darkly amus­ing crime thriller has an SF twist, as a hostage ne­go­tia­tor stum­bles across a time travel ex­per­i­ment af­ter see­ing a petty crim kill his wife. Re­peat­edly try­ing to undo it, she just makes things worse…

Shootouts and en­er­getic chases un­fold against stun­ning vis­tas of Texan desert, while James Belushi reaches Nic Cage lev­els of OTT as the douchebag Frank. A pulpy ob­scu­rity wor­thy of a cult fol­low­ing.

Ex­tras A gallery and trail­ers. Ian Berri­man

Never tell him John was fun­nier.
