Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - MOVIES -

THERE are many a deep and mean­ing­less mo­ments in Pre­des­ti­na­tion, but this line takes the cake: “It’s never too late to be who you might have been.” A nice sen­ti­ment, but a bit rich for a time- travel movie that wastes a lot of time and barely trav­els any­where. Sarah Snook plays a man who used to be a woman who once had a baby and al­most be­came an as­tro­naut. Ethan Hawke plays a time- jump­ing se­cret agent work­ing un­der­cover as a bar­man while pur­su­ing a dan­ger­ous ter­ror­ist known as the Fiz­zle Bomber. Bereft of the cal­en­darshred­ding ur­gency of mod­ern time- warp­ing clas­sics such as Looper and Source Code,

Pre­des­ti­na­tion leaves its best, mind- bend­ing scenes un­til far too late. How late? Too late for the movie to be what it might have been.

Now show­ing State Cinema and Vil­lage Cin­e­mas ( Glenorchy only)
