| Wasn't expecting much and got a whole lot more
ARQ is a low budget film made in Canada without any big name stars. Often when I watch such sci-fi films i'm disappointed, as poor acting, plot, or cheep sets get in the way. However, ARQ was very well acted and the low budget didn't distract. I'd say it was the adequate lighting that kept one in the film and not distracted (see Synchronicity for details).

The movie focuses on a couple that experiences their own Groundhog Day over and over again. But unlike Bill Murray, it's not about getting the girl or getting the hell out of the ensuing boredom, but doing what is necessary to avoid major catastrophe. I won't say what that is as it would ruin the film.

The re-tellings have enough variety with each go-through adding more to the plot twist to keep the viewer engaged. I didn't find myself looking at my phone or seeking other distractions, as I am want to do with less captivating films, so the story line was well constructed and the acting good enough to be engaging.

Overall, quite an enjoyable viewing. Highly recommended on all accounts.
