Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (3 ):

Poor production and an erratic script hampers what could have been an interesting story. Time travel and ancient myths are principally very cool topics: but this movie veers all over the place. Really, why bring drug dealers from the inner-city to a story about ancient magic in the mountains of Idaho? Moreover, when Justin freezes time, it looks like a sad high school improv game. Everyone in the cast freezes for thirty seconds while he plays a prank, or talks to his frozen-in-time love interest. If JUSTIN TIME feels like a B-movie, that's because it is a B movie. Fans of adventure and mystery can find much better efforts out there.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
