Based on the short story “All You Zombies” by Robert A. Heinlein, PREDESTINATION chronicles the life of a Temporal Agent (Ethan Hawke) sent on an intricate series of time-travel journeys designed to ensure the continuation of his law enforcement career. Now, on his final assignment, the Agent must recruit his younger self while pursuing the one criminal that has eluded him throughout time.

Written and directed by Michael and Peter Spierig and based on the short story “All You Zombies” by Robert A. Heinlein. PREDESTINATION is produced by Peter Spierig, Michael Spierig, Tim McGahan and Paddy McDonald, with Matt Kennedy, James M. Vernon, Michael Burton and Gary Hamilton serving as executive producers.

Predestination is that film that you think you can figure out the plot and ending from the beginning and when you are sure you have it all figured out, BAM! You were so wrong. And you'll catch yourself wrong not just once, a few times. Because nothing plays out the way it seems it will go. So about half through the film you just stop trying to guess and let it play out. And let em tell you, when you get to the ending, you never saw it coming and OMG its crazy.

Ethan Hawke does a great job in his role as the Temporal agent known as the "Barkeep" and will leave it at that because any more information and I give away key information. And Sarah Snook also did a stellar job with her roles. In combination both of these actors took the movie from good, to WHOA!

If you like movies that keep you guessing to the last minute and contain some exciting action scenes, then I suggest you check out Predestination. You will be entertain from beginning to end. Definitely something that can be watch by male and female but not the kiddos. It's too trippy of a movie for the young folk.

The special effects and costume design team deserve to be mentioned also for the superb job they did to help these characters nail their parts.

This book contains the story "All You Zombies" the basis for Predestination.


  1. I had never heard of this movie but it sounds pretty awesome! I'll have to watch it. Thanks for sharing!!! :)

  2. My husband gets seriously freaked out by scary movies. This one might be good for me though!

  3. I saw Predestination few days ago and totally agree with your views. This is one movie you just have to experience on your own to see just how good it really is. I love movies that keep me guessing till the end.
