Goofs

There are two explanations for why love, time and death were not seen in the videos. One is that they used editing software to remove them as stated earlier in the movie. This would be true if they were only actors. Otherwise, they could actually be love, time and death pretending to be actors, because they were also helping Howard's friends with their issues. The PI was hired to follow Howard, so would film any action on his part. She may not have seen Time, love and death since it was stated the one of their powers was to only appear to whomever they wish and be invisible to everyone else. You never saw them interacting with people around them except for the main characters. See more »

Emotional from start to end... worth every moment in it.
23 December 2016 | by (Los Angeles, United States) – See all my reviews

I'm going to keep this short since there are already so many other great reviews here to read... to sum it up though, this is a Very well put together film, with Many great elements, some of which are Very unexpected. I usually HATE dramas, and am more of a fun action / suspense / adventure kind of film guy... but every so often, a film such as this comes out, and its one that someone can easily break their usual style and enjoy.

Forget all the comments giving it one star and hating on this film... they seem very short sighted in their perception, and are unable to see how every moment in this movie had a point and purpose, while being Very thought out. Perhaps some are mad at the film because they don't want to admit it made them cry a ton, while still ending in a way to feel warm about.
