The Spierig brothers’ Predestination was a complete surprise when I saw it during SXSW. With a nice twist on science fiction, the lead up to the finale was entertaining. Based on Robert A. Heinlein’s “All You Zombies,” Predestination is about a temporal time officer who goes back in time in order to catch the Fizzle Bomber, a mass murderer who’s crimes go unabated. While this sounds like Minority Report, it’s much smarter than that. You’ll have to trust me on this.
Predestination has no domestic release yet, and is hitting Australian theaters August 28th.
