'Reset' Is An Intriguing Time-Travel Kidnap Thriller

Jackie Chan should do more producing.

Reset (PG13)

Starring Yang Mi, Wallace Huo

Directed by Chang

This is a pleasant surprise: A Jackie Chan movie that doesn’t suck. To be fair, he’s just the executive producer on this Source Code-y Sino-Korean thriller. Yang Mi plays a single mum scientist working on a time-travel contraption (hard to explain the mechanics but it involves opening up an artificial worm-hole or something like that). When terrorists (led by a stone-faced Wallace Huo) kidnap her son, mummy has to do what a mummy has to do: test the machine on herself and travel back in time to avert the crisis. But she only has 110 minutes to pull it off. (***)
