Predestination | Film review – Twisty time-travel tale packs a surprising emotional punch

Predestination DVDEthan Hawkes’ dogged time-travelling agent hops back and forth across the decades preventing future crimes. What, though, is the connection between his final mission – to stop the elusive Fizzle Bomber from committing a terrorist atrocity in 1975 Manhattan – and the incredible life story he draws out of a bitter barfly (Sarah Snook) in 1970 New York? Adapted by Australian filmmaking duo The Spierig Brothers from Robert Heinlein’s short story ‘- All You Zombies – ’, elegantly intricate sci-fi thriller Predestination will leave you puzzling over the paradoxes of time travel, fate and free will. Hawks and Snook’s performances pack a surprising emotional punch, and even if you spot the film’s big twist coming you will still want to watch it all over again to spot all the deftly placed clues.
