ARQ is a decent mystery thriller
5 second plot: The world has gone to shit. There's no food and no electricity. But Renton has built an energy source that can produce unlimited power. Of course, the bad guys are after this machine. A side effect of the unlimited power is that the machine causes time to loop. This gives Renton a chance to fight back.
5 second review: I figured this would be a terribly repetitive movie (with the time looping and all), but it isn't. It's not the kind of movie that will put a smile on your face: it's pretty dark grey. But it's a decent mystery thriller with a couple of nice twists and turns.
