A small-town crim finds an ancient Chinese time-travel device that can help him pull off a heist and start a new life-but he may not survive the consequences of tampering with time. The Castle meets Looper, Mega Time Squad is a study in high-meets-low, combining elements of the sci-fi, the crime thriller and the comedy to make a comedy heist film with a time-traveling twist.Written by

In this light hearted time travel romp, New Zealand channels the zombified corpse of Memento, via Monkey Magic and a marination of "Dude where's my Car". If you can make your way through the thick provincial Kiwi brogue and colloquialisms, this is a smart and solid little comedy with good bone structure and some solid laughs. Some of the performances are a tad uneven and stilted, but the key players give a solid performance, and the story layers enough cutely sly twists and turns to hold your attention to the end.
