“2:22” plays like the Langoliers by way of well…a short film. The idea of time stopping for an individual and then looping plays weird on film. The idea of visualizing patterns on film and didn’t trying to break loops lends itself more to a video game. Teresa Palmer is great as the romantic support, but she gets damseled a bit too much. Plus, the lead doesn’t have much of an overall journey. Somehow, I blame Donnie Darko.
But, Donnie Darko played out its ideas to a logical conclusion. This film wants to stay cheery to the point of losing its ties to reality. Oh well, it’s worth a stream.
