RETURNER stars Ann Suzuki as Milly, a young woman who has traveled back in time from the year 2084 to the year 2002. Her mission is to stop an alien invasion before it begins. This invasion will eventually lead to all-out war between the aliens and the humans if Milly isn't successful. She meets a hitman named Miyamoto (Takeshi Kaneshiro), and convinces him to help her. Unfortunately, Milly's arrival in the past was slightly off and the aliens have already landed, and the evidence has been confiscated by the government. To make matters worse, a gangster named Mizoguchi (Goro Kishitani) is determined to claim the alien artifacts for himself and harness their awesome power. It's now a race against time for Milly and Miyamoto to obtain the aliens and save the future. Add Synopsis In Portuguese

This movie, for some reason, reminded me of E.T mixed with time travel, except with a much MUCH darker story. The story wasn't the best, but at the same time it did keep me interested. The cast did well. The music was alright, and served its purpose. As for rewatch value, it's probably not one of the types of movies i would rewatch, unless it's been a good 2-3 years since i last watched it and thus forgot everything that happened. Overall though, this is a solid movie which is even better if you're a fan of Takeshi Kaneshiro. It's perfect for a lazy Saturday.

Kaneshiro Takeshi+action=must see for me! Okay, I realize I'm just a BIG fan girl when it comes to this handsome man. No, this is not only E.T like but add in a little The Matrix and this is definitely this movie. I'd only seen the lead female, Suzuki Anne in Sacred Monsters but as Milly, she was good. But hats off to Takeshi doing action! Now I'll have to comb through his movies for more. He was so bad-ass!! If you are not a Sci-Fi buff, this is not for you!! Because the action was great!!
