Storyline

On a cold February night, a young man is found unconscious at the wheel of a crashed vehicle in Montana not far from the Canadian border and a lump of weapons-grade Uranium is recovered from the trunk. He is immediately thrown into a high-security prison and tortured relentlessly for months. But apart from a few vicious-sounding curses in an unknown language, he utters nothing. Then one day out of the blue, he gives his interrogators a list of numbers and letters, which turn out to be astronomical coordinates of upcoming Supernova explosions. The very next day the first of those celestial events occurs exactly as predicted, sending shock-waves through the security establishment. It's obvious; the man in custody is no ordinary terrorist. He is a time-traveller from the future. Fifteen years later, RAMIRO still sits in the same secret prison two kilometres under the ground, but much has changed in the world above. Based on the information he has provided over the years, the US has waged...

A nifty sci-fi movie, a unknown gem, give it a watch
15 March 2019 | by CmdrCodySee all my reviews

A lesser-known movie with unknown actors but the premise really put the hook in me. After watching the movie for five minutes, I was thinking...wow...where is this going? I won't get into the plot except to say that after watching and thinking about the film, I began to appreciate the little bits of logic interwoven into the narrative. There are things left unexplained including the implications of the ending, but the screenwriter leaves that up to you. I haven't told you much about the plot to let you experience it as I did: no prior information. If like well-written sci-fi, give PrisonerX a watch. Obviously, I enjoyed it.
