ARQ Review (2016)


ARQ isn’t really a horror film but very entertaining futuristic sci-fi movie involves time loop.

The Story

ARQ is Sci-fi Groundhogs day.  A couple woke up in the morning to find out there are men with masks are trying to kidnap them. Every time they die, it starts all over again.  They need to figure out what is going on.

The Review (Spoiler Free)

As I mentioned earlier, ARQ isn’t horror film, but this Netflix original film is worth watching if you like movie about time travel and time loop. The movie is pretty much Groundhogs day but it in some time in the future.  In the future, there are two forces that are in war with each other, evil Corporation and a rebel fighters.  The evil corporation called Torus pretty much took over the world, but the rebel fighters called themselves Bloc are trying to resist them.

This film has many twists and turns in to the story.  Every loop, there is new revolution about what is going on.  And of course, there is big twist ending that will surprise you.

Just like any other time travel movie or time loop movies, there are lots hole in the logic, but it’s just a movie.  Just try to follow the story being told by the movie and enjoy the ride.

This movie is not big budget movie.  There aren’t any special effects and big chase or stunt.  The movie is driven by the good acting and twist and turn of the story line.
