Allen draws circles on the board to explain the ripple effect on the plane crash. Later, David goes back in time to fix it. When he comes back, we see the board still has circles drawn on it though they shouldn't be there considering the plane crash never happened. See more »

Good film ruined by disastrous camera work.
21 February 2015 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I'm not going to include any spoilers. I enjoyed the story and found the cast appealing. It was an interesting idea with some good special effects. There were a couple of plot holes but there were also some funny nods to movies such as Back to the Future which I enjoyed. You remember the scene where Doc Brown is trying to get two electric cables to connect?

It reminded me a lot of the superb low-budget 'Primer' which covers some of the same ground. In that movie, some geekie guys accidentally discover time-travel and have to decide what to do with it. Also, Almanac had some good jokes, which many movies seem to leave out.

Seriously, did you see any jokes in Man of Steel? Sadly the shocking camera work ruined the whole experience.All the jumping about, whirling, juddering and flicking etc. It just made me feel ill.
