(2019) (David Oyelowo, Storm Reid) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Sci-Fi/Thriller: Following the murder of his niece and her parents, a detective is startled to receive phone calls from her, seemingly from before she was killed.
- Jack Radcliff (DAVID OYELOWO) is a detective with the L.A.P.D. who's quite close to his teenage niece, Ashley (STORM REID), with them talking on the phone at least once a day. Thus, when he receives a garbled call from her and can't subsequently get hold of her, he goes to her house and is shocked by what he finds. And that is the teen, her dad (and Jack's brother), Garrett (BRIAN TYREE HENRY) and his wife, Susan (SHINELLE AZOROH) and even the pet dog murdered.
Jack's fellow cop, Bobby Owens (MYKELTI WILLIAMSON), and their boss, Howard Keleshian (ALRED MOLINA), realize he needs time to process his loss, but it's not long before Jack is trying to figure out the suspected murder-suicide. Things become more complicated when he receives a call seemingly from Ashley, alive and not aware of what's happened.
After more of them, including while in possession of her phone, he has a feeling they're somehow coming from the past before the murders. Once he proves that, he races against time to figure out what really occurred -- including with her help -- before it happens again in her timeline.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- Those who are fans of anyone in the cast and/or time travel type stories might be interested.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
- For violence, bloody images, and language.
